The spaceship Earth is the symbol of the park and the monorail was part of Walt Disney's idea for transportation here.

First review
EPCOT center is an amusement park at Walt Disney World that combines rides, entertainment and international villages. It was the second park to be built at Disney World and opened in 1982. EPCOT also is the second largest Disney park in the world at 300 acres. It is world famous and attracts over 10 million customers per year.

EPCOT is an acronym of Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow. It was initially conceived of by the visionary Walt Disney but departs significantly from his idea for a residential community based on futuristic concepts. The actual EPCOT does showcase some experimental living concepts and advanced technologies, but it’s equally a cultural attraction with 11 country pavilions represented by symbolic architecture and foreigners.

It’s possible to BlitzQuest EPCOT in a day, but you would need to hustle, plan carefully and obtain a quick pass to avoid waiting in line at the most popular rides when possible. The better option is to spend two days to take in the sights and sounds (and food) at a relaxed pace. Winter is a good time to visit as it is cooler and there are fewer people outside of the holidays. It also is advisable to take in some rides and attractions at the Future World pavilions and also some countries each day so you don’t get saturated with either. Also, check carefully at the gate or in advance for special performances such as music and dance numbers at the various countries so you can enjoy some of these shows. The best Future World exhibits were: (1) Test Track, (2) Mission Space, (3) Spaceship Earth, and (4) Universe of Energy. The best country exhibits were (1) China, (2) America, (3) Norway, and (4) France. Not to be missed is the evening fireworks and light show, which is a crowded but worthwhile event. The EPCOT experience is idyllic, but nobody, truly no one, can deliver a well-choreographed fantasy as well as Disney can. Kids can get deliriously happy here, and adults can forget their cares for a time.
