EPCOT, the Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow, was originally a theme park that opened on October 1, 1982. It was created by Walt Disney and his team to be an experimental community where people could live in a futuristic environment. The park has since evolved into a place where guests can explore, wonder, and collect keepsakes.
