Future World

While Epcot is not what Walt Disney imagined when he first came up with the name, Future World celebrates many of the ideas he embraced in envisioning the community of the future. The layout of Epcot is unique in that it is organized into pavilions which are like mini-lands of their own. In World Showcase, each pavilion represents a country; in Future World, each one represents an area of technology. Future World also possesses the iconic image of Walt Disney World: the 160 foot diameter geodesic dome known as Spaceship Earth.
