Name EPCOT – is an abbreviation of Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow. Epcot park was opened in 1982, and it is the second from four theme Walt Disney’s parks: its area takes 300 hectares.

Epcot city was projecting under dome with the climate control; from above, it should be built according to the radial principle: central circle – commercial and business buildings, next ring – social organisations, and last third ring – residential areas. Transport connections – electric trains on one track, and car traffic under the ground. The city was planned as an example of “future city” for 20 000 humans-citizens. But, the main Disney’s idea of that “future city” was never realised.
