Cutting the Ribbon on the EPCOT Center Monorail Line 

JUNE, 1982- The completion of EPCOT Center’s monorail line was celebrated with a ribbon cutting, and the beginning of guests visiting EPCOT Center for the first time, albeit, just for a short glimpse of the Vacation Kingdom’s new venture. Tickets were sold on Main Street USA and guests were given a vista of the largest construction project in the world from the Monorail Station exit ramp after a the monorail crawled its way around the newly finished rail. 

Note that Spaceship Earth is still sitting on “unfinished” legs… special Alucobond tiles were needed to bridge the gaps between the legs and the skin, as the whole surface couldn’t be covered in equally sized prismatic triangles.
