General

  1. The World Showcase water area is 185 acres and is larger than Disneyland!
    REPORTED: Rob Warden 25 JUL 97
  2. When looking at World Showcase from the Kiosk on the left side at the rail of the lagoon or from the pathway by Mexico from Future World, the Hollywood Tower Hotel at the Studios can be seen. It blends in with the architecture of the World Showcase.
    REPORTED: Dennis Dudek 04 MAY 97
    CONFIRMED: Jill Gavornik 21 AUG 97
  3. The office for the President of Epcot is behind Mexico and Norway in the Costume building. Many other offices are there also.
    REPORTED: anon 01 APR 98
    CONFIRMED: Tom and Renée Shaw 01 APR 98
  4. More than 26,000 feet of lights outlines the World Showcase pavilions -- a string long enough to stretch across the Golden Gate Bridge more than six times.
    REPORTED: Jason Dixon 23 NOV 99
  5. Most of the countries have water based rides or movie attractions due to costs.
  6. If you could go behind most of the buildings in the Showcase you would see that the elaboriate construction used in the realism of the buildings stops. I know this because I went there for a parade our band did. Also they very specifically instructed us not to photograph anything behind the scenes
