Explore the Original Epcot World Showcase that never came to be and ultimately, the Disney World That Never Was. The Story of how it evolved from Walt Disney's Unbuilt land within Disneyland, to a separate tourist destination near The Magic Kingdom, and into the Epcot Center version that was to feature 30 countries, then 20, and exactly what those countries & their attractions would’ve been.
