The Efcot Project

I've wanted to do this ever since I got the Efcot Center and monorail. After the Destination Springfield event, I could procrastinate no longer. I meant to put this up right after that event, but I got busy/distracted.

Info:
-I put this in the bottom right corner of my town. As more land opens up, I plan on extending it. It's a little crammed in some spots.
-I'm trying to replicate the actual Epcot Center, as opposed to making it more unique to the game/show. For example, I put the Italian Villa in Germany because it resembles the architecture in the Germany Pavilion in Epcot. I also chose the Mad Doctor's Castle for the castle background since that's Dr. Frankenstein's castle, who is German. Otherwise, I tried to put items that would generally belong in that country's pavilion.
-my inspiration went in the following order: memory, the app guide map, then pictures. I plan on decorating more as I get time.
-I edit my town every time I acquire something fitting.
-great pics here: http://www.orlandoparksnews.com/2017/04/epcot-update-flower-garden-festival.html

If anyone has any helpful advice, constructive criticism, or questions, fire away.

    Thank you. Just waiting for an eastward land expansion now to add a bit more.
  • Awesome idea with lots of potential.

    Your missing most of the "future" buildings. I only see like 1 future building in that picture. They gave us like 10 or more from the future event.....or is it just me that has like 50+ future buildings? Don't have them much in my town anymore though since I can't get over how they don't go with anything in my town.

    @Rosshk I like your huge lake in the middle concept. I have epcot centre and around the world idea too but got no space for the lake.

    As I mentioned in the OP, I'm modeling it after the actual Epcot. Every building/deco I put is meant to replicate the actual park. Since the real Epcot doesn't actually have futuristic buildings like that, I didn't include them.
    Walt Disney's original design would have had similar buildings, but due to several reasons, it was made without many of them

    Yeah, my lake is more squished than I want it to be, which makes the country pavilions smaller too. Just waiting for that eastern land expansion (or 2).
  • Wow, your designs are so cool.

    On the bright side, someone would have probably seen Walt's original vision of Epcot as offensive, and Disney would be removing it by now. Just like The Pirates of the Caribbean.
  • This is really cool. Have you updated it? I considered doing this with the countries, but then I decided not to, so I’m really happy to see someone who implemented it.

    Sorry for the late reply.
    Yes, I've updated it here and there. Added things like Powell Motors near Test Track, random things from the Heist event, and that holiday space station for the new restaurant. Gonna have to redo the Universe of Energy area, Great Britain, France, and make room for whichever new country is coming (Brazil?). Gonna try to add the Magic Kingdom next it now after the I&S-land update. Gonna throw Praiseland in there too. Still kinda clueless on actual I&S-land/Krustyland and Duff Gardens.
  • This is awesome! And it makes me feel so nostalgic. I remember going on a construction tour of EPCOT months before its grand opening, and also visiting on day one. So anything EPCOT gives me smooshie feelings! 😊 If you happen to have a neighbor opening, please consider me. I’d love to visit your town! 😊 I try to make my town look as pretty as possible. But this takes the cake!
