I was there! Went with my family, stayed in the Pan Pacific Hotel which was brand new. Loved the 3-D movie in the Canada Pavillion, as well as the Circle Vision movie Disney produced for, IIRC, the Quebec Pavillion, and then there was another rotating theatre where you saw one movie and then the whole seating area pivoted around, to, I think, a second movie screen. Also remember riding the giant swinging space shuttle, the roller coaster and the Caribou log chutes.

Didn't know Disney produced a CircleVision film for Expo 86. Did it move down to EPCOT afterwards? I don't remember what's in the Canadian pavilion at EPCOT anymore. I know there is/was a stunning CircleVision film in the China pavilion.

The rotating theatre? That might've been the remains of the GE Carousel of Progress formerly at Disneyland. Did they move it to Expo 86??

Anybody remember the "Spirit Lodge" show at the GM Pavilion? It is now at Knott's Berry Farm and known as "Mystery Lodge".

Anyone happen to go to Science World on friday for the Expo 86 "Look Back" party?
