EPCOT Theme Park Guide – Walt Disney World

EPCOT, Walt Disney World’s second-oldest theme park and “a showcase to the world of the ingenuity and imagination of American free enterprise.”

After almost 40 years, EPCOT park is still a celebration of human achievement brought together in Future World and World Showcase, and the 4th-most popular theme park in the world.

When looking at a map of Walt Disney World, EPCOT is almost in the exact middle of the property. The official EPCOT address is: 1200 Epcot Resort Blvd. Lake Buena Vista, FL 32830

The acronym EPCOT stands for “Experimental Prototype City of Tomorrow,” and is the name Walt Disney gave to his utopian city of the future. When the park opened in 1982, its official name was “EPCOT Center.”

EPCOT had been using the same logo as its symbol for 23 years until Disney recently shared the new logo for the park, as well as new logos for the various pavilions.

EPCOT was created around the idea of human achievement and ingenuity, science, and technology. While those messages are not emphasized nearly as much as they were in years past, they are still woven into the park’s attractions.

The first thing you need to do to go to EPCOT is buy park tickets. That requires figuring out how many days to go for. At this time, we recommend visiting EPCOT for one day during your trip.

Ticket prices vary depending on the exact day you want to visit. 1-Day Disney World theme park tickets range from $109 to $159 per day, depending on when you go.

Normal Schedule – On most days, EPCOT opens at 9:00 am and often closes at 9:00 pm. Occasionally it has later closings at 10:00 pm or 11:00 depending on the season.

The front half of EPCOT used to be called Future World and it covered the park’s main entrance and the rest which was divided into 2 areas: Future World East and Future World West.
