UP, UP AND AWAY — Mark Sumner, senior technical director and
project/ride engineer at Walt Disney Imagineering, shows off the
simple prototype he constructed from old toy parts to demonstrate
the sophisticated mechanism that would simulate a high-flying
adventure on Soarin’. The new attraction at Epcot one of four theme
parks at Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. was
inspired by the popular Soarin’ Over California attraction at
Disney’s California Adventure in Anaheim, Calif. (Photo: Byron J.
