It was 30 years ago today that Epcot Center opened its doors at Walt Disney World in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. The unique theme park, a “Experimental Prototype Community Of Tomorrow,” was inspired by Walt Disney’s dream of creating an innovative community in which to live and work. Made up of Future World and World Showcase, the enormous park has evolved over the last three decades, hosting a variety of attractions, rides, and cultural aspects.

Do you have a favorite Epcot memory or a feeling about a specific attraction that may be extinct? Let us know in the comments section.
