Earth Station epcotEarth Station was a former post-show attraction located within the iconic Spaceship Earth attraction at EPCOT. It served as an interactive exhibit and educational experience that allowed guests to explore and learn more about the world we live in.

After completing the journey through the history of communication in Spaceship Earth, guests would enter Earth Station, where they could engage with various exhibits and activities related to technology, communication, and the environment.

One of the highlights of Earth Station was the Global Neighborhood, a large map display that showcased real-time satellite images and information about different regions of the world. Guests could interact with touchscreens to zoom in on specific areas, learn about their cultures, and see photographs of iconic landmarks.

Earth Station also featured displays and interactive stations that focused on environmental awareness and conservation. Guests could learn about sustainable practices, renewable energy sources, and the importance of protecting our planet. The exhibits aimed to inspire and educate guests about environmental stewardship.

Additionally, Earth Station provided opportunities for guests to engage with cutting-edge technologies of the time, such as video conferencing and computer simulations. These interactive elements demonstrated how technology was shaping the way we communicate and connect with others across the globe.

Over the years, Spaceship Earth and its post-show experiences have undergone changes and updates. Earth Station eventually closed, and the post-show area was transformed into various other experiences, reflecting different themes and concepts.
