    No longer in print, Walt Disney s EPCOT Center is an incredibly thorough book that talks about the construction of EPCOT and the readers that were available when it opened from the perspective of the Walt Disney Company There are two versions of the book 1 Made before the park opened, so all of the pictures are of the park in construction, miniature models and drawings.2 Made after the park opened, meaning many of the pictures were replaced with actual pictures of the attractions opened They also changed the font on the cover.Other than the pictures and cover font, the actual content of the book is the same I lucked out and scored one of the former copies, meaning it is a first edition and extra hard to find.Used mainly as marketing material to hype up the park around its opening in 1983, you won t find any dark secrets here But that is to be expected and therefore doesn t hurt the overall score The book is fantastic for Disney collectors and for those who are big fans of nostalgia like me It is well worth tracking this gem down if you can.

    As I was getting ready to review this book, I came across a blog that discussed the fact that there are three separate editions of this book, all a bit different Unfortunately, it appears as if I have the third version which is much shorter than the other two While it supposedly contains the same information, there are significantly less photos As a result, I will be adjusting my rating accordingly Overall, I loved this book It has a lot of interesting information regarding Disney s Epcot park one of my favorite places in the entire world and I think any Disney fan would enjoy this I originally rated this five stars because I thought this was the only version Now that I know there are larger versions out there, I am dropping my rating by one star because my only issue with this book is that there doesn t seem to be fair distribution of photos per attractions Some have plenty while others, like the chapter on CommuniCore, only have two pictures I also wish that Disney would have released, perhaps in the 90s, a follow up book with all of the additional pavilions and attractions that Epcot eventually received.

    I was fortunate that my library had one of the earlier editions of this book the one that was released before the park opened According to another reviewer, they differed in that this version had great pictures of models and behind the scenes of the park being built, and the later version had pictures of the finished attractions instead.It was great to read descriptions and histories of attractions that I m sure I rode as a child, but that I have no memory of It was also great to read and see pictures of attractions that I have vague memories of The best part was seeing pictures of the original Imagination ride with the Dreamfinder and Figment I ll always miss that ride.The edition of the book I read also had great little nuggets of plans that never worked out such as the Africa pavilion All of this was rambling, I know, but it was a pleasure to look at pictures of Epcot, and even of a pleasure to think of all my family s memories together there.

    This was such a cool book It s a coffee table book style guide to Epcot that was published while Epcot was still being built, so it s full of concept art, models, and behind the scenes photos of the park being built It was fascinating to learn about the original concepts behind Epcot, from Walt s vision of an experimental utopian city, to an educational World s Fair, and read about so many attractions that no longer exist some that I have vague memories of , and especially attractions that were meant to exist and never came to be like the Africa pavilion I d recommend this specifically to devout Disney Parks nerds.

    If you re an Epcot or WDW fanatic like I am, this book is an essential piece to have It captures a unique period in time right prior to Epcot s actual opening, and chronicles the various attractions and features throughout the park, including ones that never made it off the drawing board.It seems to have been written with a promotional mindset, so bear that in mind before purchasing Also brace yourself for some pretty uncomfortable 80 s racism

    After reading the shorter edition of this book, I m so happy I discovered there are two longer ones one with content from before the park opened vs one with content from after the park opened The longer editions are much balanced with the information in each section and the sketches are amazing.

    Having had to get the original full version via inter library loan, I finally feel accomplished in reading the book that captured the ideas behind EPCOT A beautiful idea of a permanent World s Fair, touting culture, and optimistic futurism by a Disney company so vastly different from the bloated monster it is today The thing that strikes me is the sense of sadness of it all Almost 100% of the named expansions Germany s River Cruise, the Africa pavilion, and dozens of others were never completed and abandoned Only two countries ever joined world showcase Morocco, and Norway , and dozens of things have been gutted The park lost its identity in the mid 90s, and survived a planned thrill park rethemeing What has remained are remnants of a dream That is a barely up kept dream.Most pavilions are either still in partial completion or are shamefully outdated Now with the introduction of Frozen and other non EPCOT properties, perhaps the dream will be put out of its misery.

    This is a good book that lays out the ideas for EPCOT Center This book was written before the park opened, so most of the pictures are artist renditions and construction photos I was working at Walt Disney World in 1982 when the EPCOT opened and visited there many times It is a truly amazing place This book may not give you an accurate description of what it is like now, I m sure a lot has changed in 34 years It will give you an insight as to what it was like in the beginning.

    An interesting and anachronistic look at EPCOT Center before it was even completed All of the original attractions and some that never made it to EPCOT are covered here in varying amounts of detail Clearly, the World Showcase and Living Seas pavilion were not finished at the time this book was published, so they are mostly described in concept art.

    My dad actually picked this up for me at a library book sale It s very cool to see what the original plans were for EPCOT and what it looks like now I actually remember some of the things that were once there.
