Epcot (Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow). Epcot was Walt Disney’s vision of “a real city that would never cease to be a blueprint of the future”, but sadly, Walt passed away in 1966, before construction had even begun on the Epcot Project. Roy Disney, Walt’s brother, came out of retirement to oversee the Epcot Project, and even though it was not what Walt had envisioned, it became more of what you would see at a World’s Fair. Epcot is made upof two distinct parks, Future World, devoted to technology and the future, and World Showcase, giving guests a view and understanding of other countries and their cultures. I believe Walt would have been pleased with the Epcot of today. As with any Disney theme part, there are certain rumors, facts, and fictional stories that are passed down through the years. Here are some interesting facts and falsehoods about Epcot and World Showcase.
