    Like... I wouldn't even call Florida's 2nd park Walt Disney's Epcot because technically, it has changed so much from his original concept.
    But I think if this is the rumor the name change is meant to reflect that it's the time period he came to California: Walt Disney's California, not necessarily because it's a Walt Disney Company theme park.

    Just hard to establish that subtle difference though.

    Well, they still went ahead and called it "Walt Disney's Parade of Dreams", even though he had nothing to do with it.

    They never call it Walt Disney's Epcot. The official name is Epcot Center but most people and park propaganda just call it Epcot.

    No, the official name is Epcot. Disney OFFICIALLY changed the name back in 1996.

    I doubt there is anything that would stop them from calling it "Walt Disney's".

    they do it all the time for entertainment, movies and other Walt Disney company properties

    So far, the only evidence that proves me wrong. Good job.

    I recall in my youth, when the animated features were released, only the ones that were made during Walt's life were labeled "Walt Disney's Classic". Those that came after were labeled "A Walt Disney Classic". Minor difference, but they still differentiated them somehow.

    Now that the lagoon is drained, have they moved a crane in yet or removed the luminara anchors?

    Correct- and the name was never actually Epcot Center- it began as EPCOT Center, then EPCOT, and finally Epcot.

    Are you sure? In the 1982 book, "Walt Disney's EPCOT: Creating the New World of Tomorrow", it is referenced as Epcot Center throughout. Only when referring to the acronym EPCOT or discussing Walt Disney's original vision do they use uppercase.

    Wikipedia seems to bear this out stating that:

    The theme park originally was known as EPCOT Center to reflect the fact that the park was built to embody the ideals and values of EPCOT the city. In 1994, the name was changed to Epcot '94 and subsequently Epcot '95 a year later. By 1996, the park was known simply as Epcot, a non-acronym, mixed-case word.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Epcot#The_theme_park

    Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter

    EPCOT Center or Epcot Center, it's just spelling. It's the same thing.

    Here's how the names layed out:

    Epcot Center - 1982-1994
    Epcot '94 - 1994
    Epcot '95 - 1995
    Epcot - 1996

    So.....This isn't where project funding is going, right? Figuring out the correct way of presenting the parks NAME??? They can't figure out a name???? Oh wow. No wonder the last major E-Ticket Dark ride was in the 60's. How can the people making big decisions be so indecisive?
