Iron Man II had huge nods to Walt Disney. Most likely because of the main plot taking place at the World's fair, but the similarities are striking.
I have always liked EPCOT because this really is the only other theme park that we have that Walt actually had some input.
Also thank you Robert Niles for publishing this in near entirety. EPCOT is dripping in history which made it tough to cut stuff out. Pictures and movies are worth 1000 words for sure!
And for TH, I do not see the old man in the EPCOT crowd (read TH's book to understand this).
I was at the opening event where Mr. Walker spoke. It's always great to re-live that scene.
In 1982 as a Disney cast member and a student with the Magic Kingdom College program, I was fortunate to attend EPCOT Center's cast preview night a few days before the park opened.
Great stuff, Anthony, thank you for sharing.
