Balloons at The Land

Here's an interior look at The Land at EPCOT Center. The beautiful fountain was eventually removed to make room for more tables. Boring. Three hot air balloons hovered above, each representing different food groups. (Back when the Food Pyramid was a thing). In the mid-90s (the Food Rocks era) there were five balloons and the beautiful sky mural was covered with a darker solid blue paint.

Flowers on top of the fountain?? I can't say I remember that from my childhood. Then again how many flower arrangements would I have remembered from then. At one time "rain" fell from the balloons onto the top of the fountains.

Please do this as a special event maybe every month because I am enjoying this so much. I know that the amount of photos you may have maybe limited but you could just instead of having the Photo Hunt be a limited time event you could have it be a constant thing.

Great idea. I'm glad you enjoy this. The hunt will continue forever. We hope to post photos a few times a week. We have enough old photos in reserve to last us a couple years maybe. And we always hope grow our collection!

The 80's "Land" is awesome. I guess they re-did it for "Soarin'" however the 80's incarnation is still the best!
