That said, we still charge windmills with reckless abandon and take care regarding rule No. 2. We are, though, very close to giving in when it comes to snapping shots of the wonderful Epcot city model while traveling the Tomorrowland Transit Authority and we're not talking about taking a shot with flash. No; we're talking about giving up altogether and calling this the most elusive shot in the world.
This iconic piece of Disney history is worthy of a far greater spot in the Parks than this diorama section. Frankly, it should've been front and center as part of the EPCOT Center 25th Anniversary attraction but it remains firmly ensconced in the Stitch's Great Escape show building. This wonderful model is part of the larger, original 1963 scale model and moved to Florida in 1975 along with the Carousel of Progress attraction.
So what makes this the most elusive shot in the Parks? Simply put, it's impossible to get a good shot. (Unless, by the grace of the photo deities, the TTA were to break down right there but we've never ever seen the TTA breakdown mid-ride.) Photos with flashes look completely washed out due to the ride's environment and everything else (as evidenced here) is a blur.
What's your most elusive shot in the Parks? Why?
These photographs were taken by the author in May, 2010.
