Caption This: Visiting Robots at Epcot

posted on July 23rd, 2012 by Jennifer Fickley-Baker, Social Media Manager


It’s time for a 1980s flashback!
Caption This Photo from 1989 at Epcot!

This promotional shot, taken in August 1989, shows some teens having fun with a robot that used to entertain guests at Epcot.

What’s the gal in the red so excited about? Is the robot telling her a hilarious joke? Demonstrating futuristic teeth-whitening techniques? Or is this hug just plain out of this world?

You tell us. Go ahead and “Caption This”!
