Walt Disney World's second theme park, Epcot opened October 1, 1982. The name originally was an acronym for "Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow." Walt Disney envisioned EPCOT to be a real city — with residences, offices, a hotel, schools, parks, shopping, restaurants, and a few Disney-style themed attractions thrown into the mix.

After Walt's death, when company managers considered developing Epcot as a theme park, some wanted the park to focus on new technology, while others wanted to showcase international culture. Eventually, they pushed the two plans together and created the hourglass-shaped combination of Future World and World Showcase that we know as Epcot today.
