Epcot, which stands for an "Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow" was the original inspiration for Walt Disney World and today celebrates the fascinating cultures and wonders of the world by blending entertainment and education through dazzling shows, interactive experiences and amazing attractions.
Imagine a place where 'out of this world' is well within reach or imagine travelling around the world with no more effort than travelling around the block.
Distinguished by it's glistening geosphere, Epcot features two major sections - World Showcase and Future World. Both sections entertain, inform, inspires and offers visitors a look into technology.
World Showcase offers a kaleidoscope of nations as it takes guests to 11 nations at World Showcase while bringing together and celebrating cultural heritage. World Showcase is made up of the American Adventure, Canada, China, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Morocco, Norway and the United Kingdom.
EPCOT comprises an array of attractions, shows, interactive presentations, live performances and architectural wonders. Epcot's amazing attractions include Mission: SPACE, Test Track, Soarin' Around the World, Spaceship Earth, The Sea with Nemo and Friends, Turtle Talk with Crush, Frozen Ever After, IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth, and many more.
