Epcot Park Information

A park guide to hours, parking & getting around Epcot.

By

Epcot at Walt Disney World Resort
Compliments of Dawn Henthorn
Epcot opened October 1, 1982 after years of planning. The park is divided into two separate "worlds" — Future World and the World Showcase.

In World Showcase, nations display authentic wares and ethnic cuisines within landscaped and architecturally-unique pavilions. Ambassadors come from across the globe to represent their homelands, providing shows and entertainment that celebrate their cultures "back home."

Future World showcases future technologies and those available today, as well as journey into their imagination through an array of interactive experiences.
