Epcot is a one of a kind place where you can experience eleven different nations, participate in interactive presentations and view the latest in cutting-edge technology – all in one vacation. The name “Epcot” is an acronym for “Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow,” and was originally envisioned by Walt Disney as a real community where residents would live and work in a technically advanced environment. However the end product turned out to be more of a theme park with a World’s Fair atmosphere. It is twice the size of the Magic Kingdom (300 acres,) and can easily keep a family busy for days on end. Over the years, a constant influx of new attractions within the park has kept it a favorite among visitors who are fascinated with the dazzling shows and amazing wonders from around the world. It is divided into two “worlds” or parks – Future World, which focuses on science and inventions, and technology from both the past and the future. The World Showcase features a variety of countries celebrating their culture, history and cuisine. Epcot is located within Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Florida and is easily accessible from several exits off I-4 and the Highway 192 exit off the Florida Turnpike. It is open 365 days per year from 9:00a.m. with various closing times during the year.
