  • EPCOT Center

    When I first went to WDW in 1988 I remember the park's name having Center attached to it. At sometime till my next visit in 1998, t was shortened to just EPCOT, does anyone know when or why? It doesn't make a difference to me cause I have always called it just EPCOT anyways. But I've always been curious about it I've read posted before where the old name is mentioned but haven't found out why.

    The acronym of EPCOT just didn't make sense anymore. EPCOT is entirely different from EPCOT Center/Epcot.

      When the park opened, the name was "E.P.C.O.T. (acronym) Center", as it embodied the theme of Walt's E.P.C.O.T. in 1994, "Center" was dropped and "E.P.C.O.T." the acronym was changed to "Epcot" the word (because at this time Epcot had pretty much become a word through common usage), and the year was attached (i.e. Epcot '94, Epcot '95). For 1996, the name was permenetly changed to "Epcot".

        yep...it's no longer the experimental prototype community of tomorrow...just Epcot, which is now a household word.

              It was never E.P.C.O.T. Never. Always either EPCOT (Which was the city) EPCOT Center (the park from 1982-1993) Epcot '94 (the park in 1994) Epcot '95 (the park in 1995) Epcot '96 (the park in 1996) and now it is just plain Epcot.

                And so it was written, so it is done. And so it was never, and never shall be. Bill has spoken.

                        I say we change it to what my daughter calls it.

                        "Mommy, can we go to the big golf ball at Disney?"
