Disney World – Epcot Center
The Disney Epcot Center is two small worlds/areas combined to make one large theme park. The first visitor’s experience at Disney Epcot Center is FUTURE WORLD, a scientific zone divided into different sections such as: agriculture, automotive safety, fossil fuels and geography. The second experience is the WORLD’S SHOWCASE. This area will permit you and your family the opportunity to travel around the world and only stop in friendly countries. Circling a 40 acre lake, the 1.3 mile jaunt will take you to eleven national pavilions which are filled with native entertainment, food and merchandise.
