Facing Tomorrowland

May 28, 2014 - 11:48am
I made my first trip to Disney World when I was a young child. My parents loaded up the car, hooked up a travel trailer and we hit I-75 south during spring break. Disney was everything my young self wanted it to be. Cinderella's castle, characters, Main Street, the Haunted Mansion and other rides-it was perfect. For me, one attraction stood out more than the others-Space Mountain. It was cool, fast, dark, futuristic and a whole lot of fun, and that was just the actual ride. I remember the moving sidewalk after the ride that took visitors past a "home of the future." I was pretty enthralled with what they were showing. There was a video baby monitor, a dad having a video work meeting from the patio, a girl recording a sporting event on a giant television, a mother shopping by computer and more. So yeah, Disney pretty much nailed the "future" as all these things became standard in homes all across America very shortly after. What seemed like crazy technology to me then is regular life now. It seems like technology has exploded in my lifetime. My grandmother had an old, bulky rotary phone. When I was growing up we had a phone in the kitchen with a long cord I would stretch into the hallway to close the door and have some privacy.
