Do you remember this scene from the original Universe of Energy attraction at Epcot?
Dino Drama at Epcot

The photo, taken in 1982, depicts the attraction’s dinos in a heated discussion – and this Elasmosaurus sure looks like he’s up in arms about something. Did someone misplace a FastPass? What do you think? Go ahead and “Caption This” photo in the “Comments” section below.

Look below for more chances to “Caption This”:


  • “Be in Universe of Energy they said. Don’t hold out they said. This will be the only attraction with dinosaurs they said. And for this I’m missing Dinosaur: Countdown to Extinction.”

    • Nice one!

  • “They’ve been saying ‘only about 20 years left of fossil fuel’ for the last 40 years!”

  • You want HOW MUCH for the hamburger!!??

  • Can you believe this line to get into Be Our Guest???

    • Ha ha!

  • WHAT? You gave away our fastpasses?

  • Where’s the Pepto?

    • Ha, ha!

  • I SAID no Flash Photography !!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Can you imagine? :)

  • “HA! Made ya look!”

  • eewe, eewe, eewe, is that a SPIDER?

  • One day I shall rule the world! …..until then, get off my back!


  • No, seriously, do I have something stuck in my teeth?

  • They refurbished Test Track, but Universe of Energy is shut down for good? Totally not fair!

  • Snakes. Why’d it have to be snakes?

  • Is this the audition for Fantasmic?

  • “I have a big head and little arms, and I don’t think we thought out this plan out. Master?”

    I’ve missed the “Caption This” posts!

  • If they think I can hold this pose 45 minutes at a time they better start looking for my replacement… they will probably get some comedian who is used to doing this type of stand-up.

  • “How do my teeth look? I’ve been thinking about braces….”

  • I always play Bill Nye. This time I get to be Ellen! “Stupid Judy. Stupid Energy.”

    • That line – and the way she says it – is funny.

  • I’m hungry – Haven’t eaten all day.

  • OMG!!! Is that a theater on wheels????

  • You little man are a big pain in my neck!

  • RRRRAHHHHGGGGG!!!!! There is too much chlorine in this pool!!!!!!!!

  • AAAHHHHH! All those people going by scared me :(

  • Ellen is late again! That makes me so mad!

  • I don’t have a caption, but the very first time I rode this when I was around six years old, I was so scared when this dinosaur came out of hiding that I jumped into the lap of a man who was sitting in the next row of seats behind us. I’m sure he still remembers that moment as much as I do.

  • I got an audition to snarl like this at Ellen Degeneres, so tentacles crossed!

  • Stop crying!!! Do you know how much we paid for this vaction??!! You WILL have a good time!

  • Honest.. I saw the Yeti, it was right there!

  • “Guess what? Yep! I ate Ellen! FINALLY!”

  • “I’ll give you ‘closing the ride'” or “ima eat u omnomnom”

  • No really, I was not cutting in line, I was just trying to catch up to my family….

    • :)

  • Elasmosaurus: “Me…so…hungee!”

  • Someone better back off my caveman bones!!
