” There’s really nothing in the world comparable to the numbers we could reach.” – WED Enterprises Communications Manager Paul Goldman

On December 23, 1982, the Electronic Forum attraction opened in Epcot’s Communicore East area. The unique polling attraction had guests enter a theater and watch films on current events; they were then asked their opinions on what they had seen and provided their answers via a small set of buttons on their arm rests. The answers were compiled and submitted instantly. This technology had its uses outside Epcot, as the results were sent to newspapers across the country. The attraction was closed on March 16, 1991.
