Photo of the Week - Upside Down Waterfall at Night
This is a classic feature of the old school Epcot. Since the early days of Epcot the upside down water fall has been a fixture. It looks amazing at night but there is a slight problem. Back in the day Disney went to great strides to make sure all of the water jets were equal as you can see that is no longer the case. Kevin Yee spoke about issues like this on episode 223 of the WDWNT Podcast. The problem is Disney cuts a little here and a little there hoping no one will notice. The problem isn't the fact that some people notice it's that you can sense something is less magical. The overall refinement is no longer there.
What does this all mean? Every time Disney does this they are one step closer the "other" guy. It's just another step in the wrong direction. If they are not careful they will one day wake up and realize that they are on the same level as the other guy. It's at times like that when people ask "how did this happen?" Sadly we already know the answer.
