Welcome to Epcot

The last stop on the Walt Disney World tour is Epcot which stands for the Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow. While some of the theme park explores the future (there's a section called Future World), Walt Disney's concept for the theme park is a little different than what's there now. Anyway, this was by far my favorite park of the four in Florida.

 

The plaque in the photo reads

Epcot

To all who come to this

Place of Joy, Hope and Friendship

Welcome

Epcot is inspired by Walt Disney's

creative vision. Here, human achievements

are celebrated through imagination, wonders

of enterprise and concepts of a future that

promises new and exciting benefits for all.

 

May EPCOT Center entertain, inform and inspire

and above all, may it instill a new sense of belief

and pride in man's ability to shape a world

that offers hope to people everywhere.
