Epcot - It stands for - Every Person Comes Out Tired. (Just Kidding) It actually means - Experimental Prototype Community Of Tomorrow. This enormous attraction is actually two parks in one. Future World & World Showcase.
Future World - Features rides and exhibits that are based on emerging technologies in communications, oceanography, agriculture, computer sciences, biology, and space exploration. Of special interest here, is the dinosaur exploration ride now entitled Ellen's Energy Adventure, which is hosted in both film and robotic forms, by our own Ellen Degeneres. Marking it's one year anniversary is EPCOT's first thrill ride, and Disney's fastest ever - TEST TRACK - a Disney ride like no other! On the lighter side audiences are always laughing (and screeching and screaming) over at the Honey, I Shrunk The Audience 3 - D adventure.
World Showcase - Is a permanent World's Fair offering elaborate recreations of Canada, The United Kingdom, France, The Kingdom of Morocco, Japan, Italy, Germany, The People's Republic of China, Norway, and Mexico. As you stroll along the mile long lakeside promenade which links the various exhibits you will have the opportunity to sample wines, beers, and liquors unique to each nation. A most amazing Disney invented film technology - The 360 degree movie in the round- Offers stunning vistas of both Canada and China. In the host pavilion - The American Adventure - you will encounter a cast of state of the art Disney Audio-Animatronics (robots) in the amazingly life like forms of everyone from Mark Twain to Susan B. Anthony (lesbian!). Relive America's darkest moments and greatest triumphs in one of Disney's most moving presentations. Throughout World Showcase are fine dining establishments serving cuisine representative of the various nations in which they are found.
