EPCOT center was conceived of as a sort of permanent World's Fair back when people cared about World's Fairs. Today, the park seems more like a tribute to vintage futurism and a memorial to a lasting international peace that never really arrived. You'd need a Ph.D. to understand the place completely, but it's incredibly easy to enjoy. Take a long look at the Buckminster Fuller–designed geodesic sphere (called "Spaceship Earth") at the center, and then head to Mexico, Norway, China, Germany, Italy, Japan, Morocco, France, Canada, and the United Kingdom for nibbles and imported local color.
