Walt's Dream Becomes Disney's Prototype...


Thirty-three years ago today Walt Disney Productions announces its plan to build the "Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow aka: EPCOT... Walt's last dream.

It will not be exactly what he envisioned, but truthfully, even Walt wasn't completely sure of what it would be. He had several ideas but it wasn't fleshed out completely or exactly what it was to be which is why Imagineers had such a difficulty coming up with a workable design...

It will come to fruition sixteen years after his passing. The Mouse's commitment on completing his final wish reassures fans across the world that the magic of Disney(the company and the man) will go on... even after his life had ended.
