The ‘EPCOT Forever’ poster series celebrates all of the things that make the EPCOT theme park great. When Walt Disney developed the idea for EPCOT (that’s Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow for those who don’t know), he originally wanted the Disney park to be somewhere families actually lived.
Even though that didn’t happen, EPCOT still celebrates the promise of the future, as this new set of limited edition EPCOT posters portrays. Each of the three brand new ‘EPCOT Forever’ posters features a design from Future World. This area is currently undergoing a major renovation that will make it even more relevant to modern Disney World Guests.
The first poster in the limited edition Disney Parks poster series celebrates CommuniCore East and CommuniCore West.
shopDisney features the following description of the CommuniCore poster:
Representing both CommuniCore East and West, this limited-edition poster created by Eric Tan illustrates the retired hub of EPCOT and the technological advances in the 1980s. CommuniCore was closed and was reimagined as Innoventions, which recently closed in 2019.
The next poster in the new Future World collection celebrates the former dark ride Horizons, which ran from 1983-1999.
shopDisney features the following description of the Horizons poster:
In remembrance of the dark ride attraction, Horizons, this was created by artist Eric Tan. This limited-edition poster replicates the nostalgia and futuristic aspect of the attraction, which was located where Mission Space is currently located in Future World.
Open from 1982-1996, EPCOT’s Universe of Energy was a popular ride that took Guests on a “Billion year journey to tomorrow…” The Universe of Energy Pavilion officially closed in 2017.
shopDisney features the following description of the Universe of Energy poster:
The Universe of Energy Pavilion, a beloved slow-moving dark ride attraction in Future World may be gone, but will live in everyone’s hearts forever. Created by artist Eric Tan, this limited-edition poster brings you back to the attraction, now being constructed as Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind.
