Opened October 1, 1982 it was originally named EPCOT Center and now simply Epcot. 30 years and still going strong. Spaceship Earth is the iconic logo of Epcot. For 2000 the Mickey hand and magic wand with "2000" was added to celebrate the new millennium. It was later changed to read Epcot before finally being removed. Narriation for the attraction inside has changed over the years, with Vic Perrin, Walter Cronkite, Jeremy Irons, and now Dame Judy Dench taking a turn.
