Vintage Snapshot! - EPCOT in Classic Blue and Crystal

Standing in the shadow of Spaceship Earth was quite different in 1982 when this photograph was snapped.  Blue was certainly the dominant color of the main entrance plaza of EPCOT Center in those early years, as especially demonstrated by the fountain and its clear centerpiece with etched EPCOT icons.  The original fountain design was by no means an afterthought for Imagineers; it appeared in numerous pieces of concept art, most notably Herb Ryman's exquisitely beautiful rendering of EPCOT's main entrance.

LOVE that old fountain. Thanks for sharing, that really brought back some nice nostalgia.
