Welcome to the new home of the Epcot Explorer’s Encyclopedia, otherwise known as the Epcyclopedia. Here we hope to provide updates on Walt Disney World and related information between editions of the book. We might also rant and ramble from time to time. So sit back, enjoy, and welcome aboard explorers!
The Epcot Explorer’s Encyclopedia serves as a loving tell-all look into the most magical and magnificent theme park in existence. From the minutiae of Future World to the farthest reaches of World Showcase this guide covers it all in intimate detail. No stone is left unturned, and no legacy tile left unmocked. With a little bit of wit and a whole lot of heart you’ll be led through the splendorific sprawl of the most endearing monument to humanity that has ever been created. Highlights include: A history of each pavilion and the forces that shaped its existence – or the end thereof. Insight into the inner-workings of the park. What makes it tick and why things happen the way they do. A scene-by-scene analysis of Horizons, quite possibly the most beloved attraction in the company’s history.
