Epcot opened October 1, 1982, 11 years to the day after the Magic Kingdom. The park is broken up into two very distinct areas, Future World and World Showcase.

Future World allows guests to explore the newest technology in a fun and exciting new way, while World Showcase allows guests to get a taste of different cultures from around the world.

The current attractions in Epcot are Spaceship Earth, The Seas with Nemo and Friends, Turtle Talk with Crush, Soarin', Living with the Land, Circle of Life, Journey into Imagination with Figment, Captain EO, Innoventions, Ellen's Energy Adventure, Mission:SPACE, Test Track, Kim Possible, Gran Fiesta Tour starring the Three Caballeros, Maelstrom, Reflections of China, The American Adventure, Impressions de France, and O, Canada!


Fun Facts: Epcot has gone through several name changes throughout the years. It originally opened as EPCOT Center and eventually changed into EPCOT, until it reached today's name, Epcot (only the "E" being capitalized).

EPCOT stands for Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow. However, people have joked about it standing for Every Person Comes Out Tired, Every Paycheck Comes on Thursday, Every Podcast Can't Outdo The W.E.D.nesday Show! (Ignore the "W" and "S"), and more!

Touring Tips: Make sure you grab a Fastpass for Soarin' as soon as possible! It is the most popular attraction in Walt Disney World and the Fastpasses run out quickly!
