    Default Sea World retrospective view

    Prompted by Simon's picture of the development of Disney Springs I thought I'd post this photo, taken from the Sky Ride in Sea World in 1992.

    The question is, what's missing??

    Quite a bit these days!! From the fact the Shamu Stadium backstage area is much bigger to the new Sesame Street area that has replaced Shamu's Happy Harbor, this part of the park has seen huge changes. The kids carousel ride, Infinity Falls raft ride and Mama's Pretzel Kitchen are all missing from the left of the photo, and even the stadium seating has been enlarged since then. Quite a Wow! photo, TF!

    This photo is from 1995 and the rear pool has been extended, although there have been no changes to the stadium.

    But one major development the other side of the Central Florida Parkway is missing!

    And this shows the view across to the I4 with EPCOT in the distance.

    Wow, that's an even more amazing view, TF. There is SO much more development now.

    And, are you referring to Discovery Cove as the big 'missing' element in the original photo? It's pretty stunning to see it just as an open field!

    That corner on Central Florida Parkway and I4 is now all buildings!!

    It is DC, it was still 9 years away from the 1991 photo.

    Yes, there has been a huge amount of development along Central Florida Parkway. The same is true of International Drive south of the Beachline Expressway. Just a huge amount of new 'stuff'!
