Disney’s Epcot

The amazing world of tomorrow and the colorful diversity of the globe come together at Epcot, Disney’s second theme park in Orlando.

Walt Disney had a dream of bringing together people from every corner of the world in his vision of an Orlando theme park complex. However, Walt’s original plan for Epcot (originally dubbed EPCOT Center) was to create a community where people lived and worked with the latest technologies in communication and agriculture, as well as integrating what we know now as sustainable environments.

The acronym of the Epcot theme park was coined by Walt himself as the “Experimental Prototype City Of Tomorrow” and its master plan included residential, commercial, educational, and business sections, all of which would house and provide a place of work to the lucky people who would have been selected to live in it. Curiously, while this never happened, a theme park was built on these great principles.

Today, Epcot offers a glimpse into the world of communications, spaceflight, agriculture, history, and natural resources like the oceans. But this is just the beginning since Epcot is divided into the Future World and World Showcase sections, each of which share knowledge and history about the greatest achievements mankind has made since its dawn using Disney’s amazing storytelling style.

Epcot’s Future World, which has its unique space-age architecture throughout, presents an array of attractions, rides and shows based on the human technological achievements of yesterday, today and tomorrow. In contrast, Epcot’s World Showcase gives visitors a whirlwind tour of the globe and the select group of countries it features, along with restaurants, exhibits and folkloric performances.
