EPCOT (n) – THAT PLACE WITH THE BIG SILVER BALL.

Contrary to popular belief, there’s more to Epcot than just a very large silver ball. Certainly one could take Disney’s own words on their website about the park at face value and just regard it as the place with a large golf-ball looking structure. This book is not for anyone of that mindset.

No, Epcot is so much more. As a theme park built at the apex of the art form with nearly three decades of growth behind it since the park’s inception, Epcot stands as a fascinating and yet often entirely misunderstood monument to the human kind. This book is for the curious minds in the world who think there might be something more.
