Epcot (or the park formerly known as “EPCOT Center”) is a popular theme center at the Walt Disney World Resort in Bay Lake, Florida. It usually easy to find if you remember to look for a gigantic-looking golf ball. The park is popularly owned and run by the Walt Disney Company Parks and more specifically, its Resorts division. Inspired by an idea developed by Walt Disney, the park opened on October 1, 1982, and was the second theme park out of four to be built in Walt Disney World, after the Magic Kingdom was developed. With it’s size stretching out to a 300 acres, which is more than twice the size of the Magic Kingdom park, Epcot (A.K.A. Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow);s pledge is to observe the ever-evolving success of human achievement, technological advances and various worldly cultures. It is often attributed to as a “permanent World’s Fair”. Epcot is divided into two sections: Future World, which contains eight pavilions within its vicinity, and World Showcase, which celebrates eleven of the world’s most festive countries. Today, in light of the center’s 35th Anniversary, Do You Remember celebrates by giving you a tour of just some of  many, many groundbreaking attractions you get to encounter when you visit the universally famous EPCOT!
