Waltopia

In contrast with Walt Disney's wartime production, Waltopia presents this, his last utopian effort from the days when people still believed in heroic urban planning. Disneyland is your land.

This 24 minute film was recorded just before Walt's death. It was presented to the media and government officials in February of 1967. It highlights thier "Florida Project" a Disney World in Florida.

These plans include a theme park, industrial center, transportation center and "the heart of everything" the Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow - EPCOT. You will see the original plans for a true, planned city.

Thanks for linking to Waltopia... I'm glad you found the site interesting... While there may have been logistical flaws with Walt's plan... it would have been interesting to see what he would have come up with. - Paul
