  6. Other frequently asked questions:

  • Videos: Disney has not released any videos of their attractions to the general public including "Captain EO" or the "True Colors" segment from "Honey, I Shrunk the Audience." However, a video of "Captain EO" was created for the Imagineers and it was shown on MTV in the mid-1990s. If you are looking for the video, you may be able to find someone with a copy of the MTV video or willing to sell a copy of the Imagineer tape.

  • "EPCOT" is an acronym for Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow created by Walt Disney in 1966 referring to the city of the future he was dreaming up. He died soon after his plans had been announced and later, in the 1970s, the city of the future idea appeared to be impractical. The concept was redeveloped into a theme park called "EPCOT Center." By 1994, "EPCOT" had become accepted as a word, not just an acronym. In fact, most people referred to the park as EPCOT instead of EPCOT Center. Disney renewed its commitment to the park with the re-Imagineering of several EPCOT Center attractions and changed the name to "Epcot '94" - dropping the word "Center," changing the acronym to a word and adding the current year. This change reflected the acceptance of the word "Epcot" and the park's ever-changing nature with the addition of the year. It also allowed the word to become a registered trademark. Epcot '94 became Epcot '95, but by 1996, the year idea was dropped and the park become known as just "Epcot."
