This might be one of Disney’s coolest merchandise items ever!
Walt Disney World, often referred to as the ultimate vacation destination, is home to several renowned Disney parks, including the Magic Kingdom Park, EPCOT, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Among these parks, EPCOT holds a special place amongst fans due to its cultural flair and its iconic geodesic dome known as Spaceship Earth.
Spaceship Earth: A Disney Landmark
Spaceship Earth, a concept first introduced by Walt Disney himself, symbolizes the Earth itself as a spaceship for humankind hurtling through space. At the entrance of EPCOT, this magnificent structure stands tall, capturing the imagination of visitors from around the world. This architectural marvel is reminiscent of Walt Disney’s vision for the future and his relentless belief in innovation and progress.
In addition to being a symbol of Walt’s creativity, Spaceship Earth has also become one of Walt Disney World Resort’s most iconic structures. Commonly nicknamed the “EPCOT Ball,” Spaceship Earth is a clear and easily recognizable piece of architecture.
Now, fans of this iconic ball will be able to have a mini-version of their own.
