The second of Disney's Orlando parks to open, EPCOT became a reality in 1982 after sitting on Walt Disney's drawing board for years. Known as "the permanent World's Fair," some 12 million guests arrive to gaze upon the world-renowned Spaceship Earth, a striking geodesic sphere that looms over the skyline. Human achievement and innovation are the watchwords here, and it truly is a spectacularly educational experience, in stark contrast to the light-hearted cartoon worship that happens around it. Split between Future World and World Showcase, the park celebrates the ideals of both space exploration and the diversity of invention that the world's nations bring to the table, all exhibited in an array of high-tech, awe-inspiring rides, attractions, and wonderful food and drink.
