Epcot's 30th: Original Guidebook

In case you haven't heard, Epcot is about to celebrate its 30th birthday on October 1st.  There has been talk among the Disney fan community about this for quite some time, but excitement is really building as the date approaches.  To commemorate the occasion, we'll be sharing some memorabilia from Epcot's (and EPCOT Center's) history from our personal collections.

Today's post will focus on the original version of the EPCOT Center Guidebook, which featured a spinning wheel to get information on the attractions in Future World and World Showcase or on different Kodak cameras (if you flipped the guide to the back).  The guide shown below was acquired during a March, 1983 visit to Walt Disney World.

[NOTE: Since posting this item I've come across a link to an even older version of this guide, which doesn't include Horizons and has a different look the to spinner page with descriptions of each pavilion. Take a look!]
