A Whole New World
Visit the second park ever built at Walt Disney World® Resort! Spanning over 300 acres, Epcot® is twice as large as Magic Kingdom® Park and welcomes over 12 million guests each year. The park was built on "technological innovation and international culture" and is represented by an 18-story geodesic sphere known as Spaceship Earth. Fun fact - if you ever catch yourself in a rain storm, take cover under the Spaceship Earth. Lucky for you, the attraction was designed to funnel rain water to the nearby lagoon and keep visitors dry.
