Why was Epcot built?

Epcot was originally conceived by Walt Disney during the early development of Walt Disney World, as an experimental planned community that would serve as a center for American enterprise and urban living. … The newly designed park, featuring two sections—Future World and World Showcase—opened as EPCOT Center in 1982.

Is Epcot worth visiting?

As with all the Disney Parks, Epcot is worth a visit. My favorite experiences: Test Track; Illuminations; and Spaceship Earth. Take some time to properly visit each country’s pavilions in World Showcase. Each one is staffed by people native to that country, and the entertainment is also from that land.
