Spaceship Earth & the Wand -Throwback Thursday

Since going to Walt Disney World and Disneyland at a young age, Chris has always enjoyed Disney music, TV shows, movies, and trips to Walt Disney World. But his appreciation of the overall Disney experience has greatly increased over the last few years. While waiting for the next chance to work on his Disney photography skills, Chris passes the time listening to Park/Resort audio, WDW podcasts, and checking out the work of other Disney photographers. To Chris, there are no bad Disney trip photographs or photographers.

Non-Disney pursuits include spending time with his wife and children, watching and listening to baseball broadcasts, and cheering for the Chicago Cubs and LSU. Chris is a third generation professional engineer in Louisiana, working mainly on asbestos, lead, mold and demolition projects.

Spaceship Earth & "the Wand"

Spaceship Earth & “the Wand”

 

This photo shows the EPCOT landmark, Spaceship Earth, with the Wand that was added in 2000. The wand was removed in 2007. Like the Sorcerer’s Hat at Hollywood Studios, the Wand had some fans, but was also unpopular with others.

This shot is from our trip in 2004, and I kind of got used to the sight of the wand on Spaceship Earth. Having said that, I prefer Spaceship Earth as it was before the Wand, and as it appears now. So for you fans of the Wand, I hope you enjoy the photo.
