Introduction to Chapter Three - Epcot

Walt Disney’s “experimental prototype community of tomorrow,” or “Epcot” for short, never materialized into the grand self-sustaining city of the future he had envisioned. Instead, since his death, it has become one of the most unique entertainment parks anywhere. Epcot is a more adult-oriented park than the Magic Kingdom and is more than twice as large as either the MK or Disney-MGM Studios — which gives you room to spread out even on busy days.

Epcot shelters two “Worlds,” Future World and World Showcase. Future World is a collection of pavilions that house rides and attractions showcasing technology and progress. World Showcase offers visitors a glimpse of the cultures of eleven different countries, with samples of their characteristic foods, goods (many for sale), and attractions. Each “country” is housed in its own pavilion, and the pavilions are set along a wide promenade surrounding a lagoon. Bridges connect the two worlds and wind around the Odyssey Center, a large facility used for special events.
