"To all who come to this place of Joy, Hope and Friendship - Welcome.
EPCOT is inspired by Walt Disney's creative vision.
Here, human achievements are celebrated through imagination, wonders of
enterprise and concepts of a future that promises new and
exciting benefits for all.
May EPCOT Center entertain, inform and inspire and above all,
may it instill a new sense of belief and pride in man's ability to
shape a world that offers hope to people everywhere."
-- Card Walker, Disney Chairman and CEO, at Epcot Center's dedication on October 24, 1982.
