I used to LOVE this attraction! It had everything! Fantasy, reality, the future, the past, wonder, amazement and an amazing optimistic view of tomorrow!

I very much enjoyed Horizons. I especially liked the music from the farm :D and I always loved choosing the ending when I was little. We generally were able to ride enough times to pick each ending at least once.

Wow that's cool! Yeah I miss it too! I have fond memories of this attraction! I agree with you about the music too! About a year ago, I edited a Horizons Music score tribute, just like the Journey Into Imagination music tribute you just saw! Here is the link if you want to listen! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jnF72apxwyc

PS ..It is 2 hours long ha!

I miss it. I got to ride it the last day it was open when a bunch of other CM's and I ran there after our shift to get on it.

I always considered it as Carousel of Progress: Part II. I loved that the ride let you pick the ending. As a child, that ride and the rest of Futureworld always gave me a hope of progress for the future.

I should've been an Engineer.

Super sweet zammis

I really miss Horizons. I think it embodied everything EPCOT stands for. Optimism. Hope in technology and the power of imagination. Spaceship Earth is close but....just not the same

There will never be another ride like it. I can still smell the oranges. :-(

If you're a true fan, you'll definitely love what this guy has been putting together - it's incredible.

It is great...but sadly he hasn't really done much to it since April 2013. I said he had some updates this past May, but nothing ever came from that.
