Following his bestselling guide to Magic Kingdom, Aaron Wallace takes readers on an in-depth tour through Walt Disney World’s Epcot — the theme park that endeavored to change the world.
Walk through every ride and show as Wallace illuminates its history and asks whether, how, and why the attraction meets the park’s mission.
From Future World to World Showcase — from the EPCOT Center of 1982 to the Epcot of the Food & Wine/Frozen era — you’ll learn to look at, think of, and talk about this revolutionary place in an all-new way.
Unpack big questions like:
- Should a Future World attraction ever take place in the past?
- Are Frozen’s Anna and Elsa holding World Showcase hostage?
- Do Disney characters belong in Epcot?
- Why does the park spend so much time in Ellen DeGeneres’s head?
- Has Epcot lost its way?
- Did the park really change the world?
The Thinking Fan’s Guide to Walt Disney World: Epcot is the first Epcot book to definitively and comprehensively tackle each of the park’s many controversies and challenges.
Wallace puts the park’s status quo to the test, mapping out a new vision for an edutainment destination that can boldly go where no other theme park has gone before.
