EPCOT: Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow



Did you know that EPCOT was an acronym? Its been around so long and casually, and now officially, known as simply EPCOT that the full name has become a great trivia question. Impress your friends. Go ahead, I’ll wait. Go post about it… In fact use #DisneyPediaInfo or link back to this page so that you can share this new fun fact. 

Anyway, EPCOT is my absolute favorite park and with good reason. In addition to its educational focus on science and discovery in Future World, it features a well known unique cultural immersion experience in the World Showcase. EPCOT also hosts several seasonal special events throughout the year.

Future World

Some of my favorite attractions in Future world are The Seas with Nemo & Friends for children of all ages, Soarin and Test Track. These last two are a lot of people’s favorites. In addition to these, I love taking a Journey Into Imagination hosted by everyone’s favorite purple dragon, FiGmEnT!

World Showcase

Grab a passport and travel around the ‘world’ at the World Showcase featuring 11 different countries. Get your passport stamped in each with a personalized message to commemorate your adventure. World Showcase includes (in order ) Mexico, Norway, China, Germany, Italy, United States, Japan, Morocco, France, United Kingdom & Canada. Each country has its own unique culture, dining, attraction and entertainment.

Special Events

EPCOT hosts a great many events and celebrations as well as featuring live music and entertainment from around the world. Some of these events include Epcot International Festival of the Arts (which debuted in  2017), EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival, EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival and Holidays Around the World.
