The Icon of Epcot

The Icon of Disney World's EPCOT is the Spaceship EARTH. EPCOT is an acronym of "Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow". EPCOT is a Utopian city of the future planned by Walt Disney. According to him, "EPCOT ... will take its cue from the new ideas and new technologies that are now emerging from the creative centers of American industry. It will be a community of tomorrow that will never be completed, but will always be introducing and testing and demonstrating new materials and systems. And EPCOT will always be a showcase to the world for the ingenuity and imagination of American free enterprise." What a great vision! I took these pictures few months ago while visiting 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 in the world.
