Experimental Prototype Community Of Tomorrow, or EPCOT, opened its doors in 1982. Though Walt had been gone for years when this park opened, it is full of his ideas. This was his brainchild from the start. It differed much from the light, animation focused land of the Magic Kingdom. This was a park about technology, how the world worked, and the future. For years it was described as an “educational” park, a stigma that still lingers at least a little today. But the experiences widely vary, and at more than twice the size of the Magic Kingdom, there is plenty to explore and see.
