Plazas and storytellers

The details that fill the empty spaces, completing the stories of Walt Disney World never sparkle more than at night. This is especially true of the lampposts in Epcot’s World Showcase. Unlike their culturally diverse brethren, the lights in Future World are not always as distinct.

There are short, half lamps that have populated the footpaths of Future World since the park’s opening in 1982. Then there are a few scattered lamps, full-sized, that add to the scenes they inhabit. From the street lamps of Test Track to the oddly branched lanterns of Imagination, the lampposts of Future World light the way forward, illuminate the tales presented and are terrific details worth looking up for.
