Like Adventures through Inner-space. If they built that now, I think it would look pretty darn cool and be fascinating at the same time

But I must say after becoming a Disney nut and listening to the old ride audio from Epcot and watching the ride through videos of rides long gone on youtube, I have to say I feel like I really missed the golden years of the park. Don't get me wrong, I love Disney World! But when you listen to tracks from Horizons and you hear the quality of the music and narration and then you think,"They just deep sixed the whole thing." it makes me worry about some of my favorite rides and music getting the same treatment in the future. I already saw the People mover undergo changes that I don't like. But in the end, I will always go back to the World I love. As long as they dont change the Columbia Harbor House everything will be ok. and they better keep their hands off my star tunnel

If you can actually remember clearly riding these rides, you may not remember them as impressively as you currently believe. I did like Horizons, and was sad about its closing. But Universe of Energy was indeed boring. Unfortunately, Disney's knee-jerk reaction was to take it in 180 degrees different direction and we got Ellen's Energy Adventure. And over the years the entertainment element (including Disney character placement) became the greater determining factor in what to do with the pavilions than trying to be informative. The mistake for EPCOT was trying to find the right balance of both - being informative and entertaining - in going forward.
I found World of Motion boring. I remember the last two large rooms before the future city at the end being empty and having the computer scenes from TRON projected upon the walls. In some ways, the attraction felt cheap in parts and well done in others. But once you rode, you knew it. There wasn't much there to make you ride it again and again. WoM to me did not have a very high "informative" value or entertainment value as well. It needed to go. I don't know if Test Track is a great alternative, but to me it suceeds better than its predecessor. At least it gives a general idea about the scientific testing involved with cars from brakes to steering.
I understand Disney needs to change as time progresses forward, but I think they need to do it more intelligently than they have in the past - so we won't get any more Ellen's Energy Adventures or ETR: UNMs in our future.

Maybe now that Apple and Verizon have hugged and made up they can combine forces at WDW...and help offer some more interactive things. It would be a great form of self-advertisement inside of the parks that could actually serve a purpose.
Let's bring the true meaning back to Innoventions.
