Epcot is constantly evolving to stay one step ahead of the future it's supposed to depict. Even the name has changed. The park was first referred to as EPCOT (Experimental Prototype Community Of Tomorrow) Center. Since December of 1993, the park has been referred to as Epcot-and only the first letter is now capitalized.
