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
To all who come to this
Place of Joy, Hope and Friendship
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.
