Epcot Theme Park, Orlando, Florida
Hello friends, today I am at a magical world to have some fun. The place you see behind me is the famous Walt Disney theme park in Florida named- Epcot.
History of Epcot
Epcot is an acronym of Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow, a utopian city. Originally Epcot was supposed to be a test city model with home to twenty thousand residents. But this vision of Walt Disney never came true and after his death the officials decided to take this park into a different direction. The theme park opened in 1982 and consisted of Future World and World Showcases. Future World was dedicated to new technology that was being developed. World Showcase was developed to be a separate park that showed the customs and cultures of other countries. The park was not known as we know it today until 1996, when the park was officially rebranded Epcot. The attractions inside the park keep changing according to changes in technology.
