10 Rookie Mistakes at Disney World's Epcot

10 - Calling it a Big Golf Ball

The ‘ball’ is actually a geosphere consisting of 11,324 triangular panels, and inside it houses one of the most classic and iconic attractions at Disney World, Spaceship Earth. This attraction takes guests back in time and traces the history of human communication from cavemen up to present day. It features wonderful Audio-Animatronics and a narrative delivered by Dame Judi Dench. Next time someone calls it a big golf ball, you can tell them it’s actually a geosphere called Spaceship Earth.
