Epcot is the second of Walt Disney World’s 4 theme parks. Opening on October 1, 1982, it was and still is a vision of the future and a tribute to some of the world’s marvelous countries. It was developed and laid out initially as 2 parks, when Walt Disney saw how easily his two hubs fits together, it became one. Epcot showcases not only our World but how technology shapes it.
Future World is split in half- the east and the west. Here you will find showcases of innovative inventions at Innoventions as well as being able to visit the Land, the Seas, and even take off into space! “In Future World, ideas become reality!”
Spaceship Earth, the park’s flagship ride featured in the “golf ball” icon that towers over your view as you enter, is located here as well.
World Showcase is located beyond Future World if you enter from the main entrance of the park (if you enter from the Boardwalk/Epcot resort area you enter in World Showcase itself). Here you will be whisked away on a whirlwind tour of the splendor and distinct beauty found in 11 nations from this fabulous planet. Where else can you start your night in the UK and end it in Japan?

- American Adventure Pavilion
