Thanks for downloading WEDWay Radio, a show about Disney history, Disney Parks and touring.  This is episode 119 - 30 Years of Discovery:  From Progress City to Epcot Center.

This show continues our look at Epcot Centers 30th Anniversary by looking at the 5 decades of Epcot.  In this particular show we take a look at what happened between Walts original of E.P.C.O.T. with the city of the future to the theme park that we ended up getting.  There were many starts and stops in this process and the entire Walt Disney World property was considered for this project.

We take a look at how Disney evolved its ideas to create Future World, and World Showcase, the key players involved in Epcots evolution and the final product as they saw it in 1978.

On this weeks WEDWay Radio we take a look at an area of Walt disney World that was a part of the plan from the very beginning, the Transportation and Ticket Center, although the site and purpose saw some drastic changes from its original plan for EPCOT City.

The TTC has probably seen its busiest days and will never again be the bustling area that it was in the 1970's and 80's, but for a long stretch of time, it was a vital core of transportation for WDW Resort guests.  

Enjoy our look at the rise and slow decline of this functional relic of Walt Disney World.
