Walt Disney World has confirmed that going forward, Epcot will be known as “EPCOT” in all uppercase letters.

What’s Happening:

  • Epcot park at Walt Disney World is subtly changing its name to “EPCOT.”
  • While we knew this change was coming as part of the park’s transformation, it seems it has now taken effect.
  • However, for the time being, Walt Disney World’s official website still shows the previous “Epcot” stylization.
  • The change is a nod to the park’s original name, “E.P.C.O.T. Center.” It used an all uppercase acronym that stood for “Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow.”
  • The park’s name changed for the first time in the mid-’90s when it became “Epcot ‘94” and then “Epcot ‘95” before losing the year and remaining simply “Epcot” until present day.
  • This name change comes as the park undergoes a huge transformation, with most of Future World under construction.
