Disney Week: EPCOT Center brochure

Disney Week continues with a brochure from EPCOT Center's opening year, 1982. I remember EPCOT Center in its heyday, and the young nerd in me liked it way better than Disney World. The vision of the future, the fascination of science and technology, the melting pot of world cultures, and this sharp and cleverly-designed map and travel guide.

The wheel on the bottom can be turned to reveal different information about the different countries represented at EPCOT's World Showcase. On the back of the brochure, the wheel serves a second purpose as part of a Kodak advertisement, listing different camera facts at the turn of the wheel.

Yeah, the young me (born the same year as EPCOT apparently) preferred it to the other Disney World parks. I don't know that doesn't bespeak extreme geekiness, however.

My parents took my brother and I to Disney right as EPCOT was opening. I think I was 6 or 7.

The next time I went back, I spent the day drinking around the world.

Not sure if the 20 year old me or the 7 year old me had a better time, but I do vaguely remember that EPCOT brochure from our trip around the park.
