“Join your hostess Julie and her electronic sidekick I/O for a tour through Epcot’s Computer Central, the computer hub of Epcot Center.”

On February 4, 1984, the Epcot exhibit Backstage Magic opened in Epcot’s Communicore East. It replaced the Astuter Computer Review (1982 – 1984), and ran until October 1, 1993. It was hosted by a woman named Julie and her sidekick I/O, which stands for Input/Output. The attraction explained to guests how the Audio-Animatronic characters in the park work through the use of computers. Its closing was part of a major closing of Communicore, which reopened again in 1994 as Innoventions.
