This newly revised edition of the Epcot Explorer's Encyclopedia serves as a loving tell-all look into the most 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:

-An extensive history of each pavilion and the forces that shaped its existence - or the end thereof.
-Valuable insight into the inner-workings of the park, sponsor contracts, and attraction operations.
-Answers to questions like "What makes Epcot tick?" and "Why do 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 the whole Walt Disney World Resort.
