Disney Day 1: Epcot
Walt's original idea here was to build an Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow. This never really happened, but the Epcot theme park was based on this concept.
The first part of Epcot is the Future World section, which has lots of science-y, education-y, technology-y, computer-y type things.
The second part of Epcot is the World Showcase, which has a bunch of pavilions for different countries, and really is just an internationally-themed shopping mall, with an occasional exhibit. We definitely hit a wall late afternoon, after walking around in the sun all day, and nothing seemed better than going back to the hotel for a homemade cocktail!
Today's "only in America" moment? The 35-minute animatronic stage show on how great America is. (Obviously that would be really weird if it wasn't in America, but what I mean is that I can't think of any other country that would present such a show about themselves).
