On this episode of The WhimsiMagical Mousecast we tell the first of what will be a four part series on the history of EPCOT. How it was meant to be the cornerstone of the modern day Walt Disney World and how it came to be not the EPCOT Walt envisioned but did become the theme park that we all know and love today. Would the original EPCOT idea made a difference in the Walt Disney World that we know today? Most certainly it would have. It may have even had an impact on the cities we live in today by it’s example of innovative infrastructure, transportation, layout and efficiency. We’ll also explore how the present day site was chosen and the creative way the Disney company approached purchasing the land at cost effective prices by retaining the secrecy of the company’s involvement.
With Ana joining us, we’ll then journey back to the present and discuss the International Flower and Garden Festival that is currently happening in, of course, Epcot. We’ll tell you about some of the events going on and why you should make a point of making a trip to experience this unique tribute to creativity and nature (with some great events and concerts thrown in to boot.
In this episode we’ll talk about the current pet care options inside of Walt Disney World and we’ll also advise you of current and near future attraction closures and refurbishments. Please join us for this episode as we continue to explore the whimsical and magical place that is Walt Disney World.
