The Epcot Center is Disney World’s futuristic land of imagination. If you are planning to visit this theme park during your trip, then you need this 101.
What exactly is in Epcot?
Epcot, short for Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow, is one of the four theme parks in Disney World Orlando, FL envisioned by Walt Disney. The Epcot Center was opened to the public in 1982, offering a world of endless wonder, possibilities, new ideas, and technologies, incorporated in breakthrough rides and attractions.
Epcot center is truly unique from the other three theme parks in Disney World (Magic Kingdom, MGM Studios, and Animal Kingdom), because of how it makes the world of science so wonderfully and astonishingly exciting. Critics say that the park whets the curious appetites of the little ones as much as it whets older generations' and age groups'.
Epcot center is divided into two areas - the "Future World" and "World Showcase" - with each area divided into smaller "pavilions."
World Showcase presents the unique cultures of eleven countries where you can sample different cuisines. You can also enjoy exhibits, movies, rides, and performances that represent each unique nation, and even shop for native wares. You can stroll from one land to another for a different experience. Another sight to see in the World Showcase area is the spectacular fireworks display called "Illuminations: Reflections of Earth." This presentation, usually held at the World Showcase Lagoon, combines lasers, fountain shows, and musical scores.
Each of the four theme parks at Disney World - Magic Kingdom, MGM Studios, Animal Kingdom and Epcot Center - have their own unique charm and attractions. Magic Kingdom is a land of fairytales. MGM Studios lets visitors into the glamorous world of Showbiz. Animal Kingdom has fascinating animals, both real and imagined.
