Inside the Siemens VIP Lounge in Epcot’s Spaceship Earth

As an EPCOT Center child, once I discovered that Future World lounges existed, it was on my bucket list to see them all. For the most part, it’s been happy accidents that I’ve seen them, just being with the right people or at the right event, and today was another example of that. I can now cross the Spaceship Earth lounge off my list thanks to an event put on by the Disney Interactive Media Group promoting the upcoming Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion game for the Nintendo 3-DS. I’ll have a post on that event soon, but for now, let’s head into the lounge!

Pretty cool, right? I love how the various parts of the lounge can change color at a whim. Very Future World! Prior to the redesign in 2007 with Siemens, the lounge was run by AT&T and Bell System before that. Siemens employees can check in here and take advantage of the lounge during their stay at Walt Disney World.

The other lounges within Future World are the GM lounge (currently under reconstruction with Test Track’s refurbishment), the HP lounge at Mission: Space. The former United Technologies lounge at The Seas, The Wonders of Life lounge and one above The Land are sometimes available for special events. The former Kodak lounge at Journey into Imagination and the Universe of Energy lounge are no longer used. There are World Showcase lounges above the American Adventure and the Norway pavilion which are also used for special events.

I was happy to be experiencing the Spaceship Earth VIP lounge with my friends Amanda Tinney and Nicole Siscaretti! A fun night for all.

    I haven’t been in one yet. This one is ah-mazing! Love the color-changing floors.

      Yes! Once we found out they could change the colors on demand I wanted to make them turn the room into a rainbow! 😀

    ha ha ha. I loved this before I got to the pictures of the bathrooms and then I loved it even more. I would have done the same! Looks like a great time, and you three look awesome!

      Haha, had to be thorough! 😉 Actually, I took the photos of the bathrooms because someone had said on foursquare that they were the best bathrooms in Epcot, so I was all excited. I didn’t think they were anything too special, I still prefer the Wonders Lounge ones! 😉

      And thank you! :)

    Great job, Zanna! I saw this lounge probably about 10 years ago, when it was still AT&T. It was cool to see then, but the Siemens decorating touches are much nicer!

    Those color-changing elements really bring a lot of warmth to the place — Love this! Plus, this was all about 3DS Epic Mickey?!? I can’t wait to get that game!
