EYE-FILLING VIEWS — Snug in their X-2 space trainer, Walt Disney
World guests on the new Mission: SPACE attraction rocket off to
Mars in a one-of-a-kind experience. For each Epcot voyager, the
wonders of space pour through their viewports. From pulse-racing
liftoff (pictured), Florida falls away from view as the blackness
of space envelops the crew. After dodging a meteor shower and other
in-flight surprises, astronauts push deeper to their first
jaw-dropping views of Mars. A landing attempt on the forbidding
Martian landscape awaits. To add to the realism of the experience,
Walt Disney Imagineers used computer-generated photo-realistic
imagery straight from NASA spacecraft. Walt Disney World Resort is
in Lake Buena Vista, Fla.
