so at Archdale road I headed south on Old Pineville Rd. towards Arrowood road at first it looked a lot like other parts of the road i had been down, then I came to several buildings that made up the campus of a large church, then I drove past a large parking lot across which sat the Wonders of Life pavilion from Epcot...ummmm either I just found the BEST SHORTCUT TO WALT DISNEY WORLD EVER, or perhaps, that wasn't the wonders of life pavilion after all, so later I had to come back again this time with my camera.
It turns out that this building is a part of that aforementioned large church campus, known as Victory Christian Center
and a small picture of it even appears on one of the pages of their web site:
I'm guessing that the Wonders of Life building at Epcot might have been based on an "off the shelf" design, or that once it had been done in Epcot it didn't take long for some architects to realize its potential elsewhere after all it you think about the WOL pavilion that large open central area would be ideal for a church would it not?
So while I still don't have a path that let me drive to Walt Disney World in 10 minutes, at least on those occasions when I do drive down that road I get to see a little reminder of Epcot right here in North Carolina.
