Historical Note

Epcot, the Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow, opened in 1982. It was conceived by Walt Disney to "take its cue from the new ideas and new technologies that are now emerging from the creative centers of American industry." Epcot consists of two themed areas, Future World and World Showcase. Future World's attractions focus mainly on the future, education and technology. World Showcase features different countries from around the world represented by pavilions with shops, shows, restaurants and attractions relating to those countries.

Eastman Kodak Company, commonly known as Kodak, is an American technology company currently focused on imaging solutions and services for businesses. It was founded by George Eastman in 1888. Kodak is best known for photographic film products, which it produced throughout most of its history. During most of the 20th century, Kodak held a dominant position in photographic film. In 1982, Kodak launched the Kodak Disc film format for consumer cameras. The format ultimately proved unpopular and was later discontinued.
