“UnDISCOVERED” Epcot*
*Guests must be 16 years or older to attend

G200
8:00 am – 3:00 pm

You will embark on a fascinating journey that tells the story of how Walt Disney’s desire to improve the world’s future led to the development of Epcot theme park. When Walt Disney bought 27,500 acres of land in Florida, his dream was to build an Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow, which he called EPCOT. EPCOT was originally intended to be a living, breathing city of the future inhabited by thousands of permanent residents. EPCOT Center, eventually to be known as Epcot theme park, was the planned entertainment center of the community.
During this approximately 3-hour guided tour, venture into secret backstage areas of Epcot theme park and see amazing facilities that guests are ordinarily not permitted to visit. Discover how Walt Disney’s vision and legacy inspired the design and technology behind the Future World area of Epcot theme park.
Afterwards, you are invited to enjoy EPCOT on your own
