Huh... the future in 1971 sucked.
What was Disney World to do? They were shooting for the future and ended up face-down in a steaming pile of the present. Then, in 1982, Epcot opened with two lands. Two massive, sprawling, glorious lands: Future World and World Showcase. This was a different sort of theme park. One the world wasn't really ready to accept yet. But sucks to the world! Epcot is awesome!

|The Universe of Energy. Really long. Really fun.|
|Nothing says "Future!" like robot butlers on the no-longer-with-us Horizons.|
But the key here was Future World. Finally, a land that actually looked into the future, taking technology from the past and stretching it into the times beyond our grasp. Everything from marine biology, to horticulture, to energy resources, to a world on the go! Man, this place had everything, and it did not disappoint! Finally we had a real vision of a real-world future to look forward to.
