Located at Walt Disney World in Florida, Epcot was the third most-visited theme park in the world in 2011. The park can be compared to a permanent "World's Fair", and is divided into 2 main sections. Future World is dedicated to technological innovation, and features high-tech attractions and exhibits sponsored by major corporations. World Showcase, situated around the park's lagoon, is made up of 11 pavilions depicting different countries around the world.

History: Walt Disney originally envisioned Epcot as the centrepiece of his Florida resort. Rather than being a theme park, it was to be a utopian city in which people lived and worked developing the technologies of the future. The park's name derives from Walt's original title - the Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow (EPCOT). Though the concept was scaled back after Walt's death, the park still embraces his aims of celebrating international culture and showcasing cutting-edge technology.
