EPCOT stand for Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow.
Disney designed EPCOT to be an enclosed part of Disney World, within a dome, so that everything would be totally controlled.
He wanted it to be a regulated community where people lived, worked, and played and where there was no crime, no societal negatives at all.
Instead, opening in 1982, EPCOT became a kiosk of corporate-sponsored technological exhibits.
All the same, it’s one of the most visited attractions at the park.
