Overview

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 and all of the World Disney World resort.

Editorial Reviews

Mark Weaver
“The Epcot Explorer’s Encyclopedia” takes the insanely numerous websites, facts, tidbits of information and puts them together in one place and makes for a great read. I never felt like I was reading something boring, rather something that had just enough of a personal touch injected into it to make you feel like you could “see” what was being talked about.
Sam Gennaway
Let’s just say info junkies are going to be in heaven. You will have answers to questions you never thought to ask. I especially enjoyed the incredibly detailed descriptions of the Future World pavilions past and present. The essays include the pre and post shows and bits of the dialogue. For many of the attractions, the author also provides operational details such as staffing levels and Cast Member working positions.
Leonard Testa
Download this book if you're an Epcot fan. The park's history, and the history of it's attractions, is lovingly told with detail and humor. It reads like an informal chat with the author.
