The 2032 Series continues with a discussion how EPCOT Center’s prophetic promises really came to be and how to restore relevance in a world of ever-changing complexity culminating in the creation of a Whole New Realm for The E82 Project! . . .
From the avant-garde overtures of Entrance Plaza, to the electronically-driven chords of Innoventions and all points inbetween, the Future World Atmospheres Series takes its cue from the many soundscapes the permeate the park with newly re-mastered/restored recordings repackaged for professional playback.
Our Second Edition brings us to what could be considered Future World’s last accumulative pavilion & the first time Epcot went "out of the gene pool" for musical accompaniment...

Originally opening with the rest of the park in 1982, EPCOT Center’s primary gift shop, Centorium was the Center Emporium for Future World and featured two levels of shopping with the second floor overlooking the Fountain of Nations.
Inside the store contained many forward-thinking toys and devices the seemingly foretold the future of high-tech shopping that is now so commonplace. Unfortunately the dawn of the new millennium, for which Epcot announced nearly two decades before, also claimed this fun and futuristic shop in 1999 to make way for is now Mouse Gear.
In continuing E82’s 5th Anniversary Celebration, we are set to re-open Centorium with several products in the works that will once again bring New “Gifts of Future World” into your home and on your computer. Starting with one of the most requests assets of The E82 Project…
I realize that a singular product does not a store make, but there are actually several new, innovative, and nostalgia-based items that will be coming online and in the store very soon!
At this Moment Five Years Ago, “The E82 Project” was begun with the lofty goal of revitalizing the original experiences, aesthetics & ideals of EPCOT Center in the hope that utilizing the philosophy of “Influence through Inspiration” it would be possible to bring forth the “Dawn of a New Era” for the Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow.
Since that day, The Epcot Legacy has been in a constant state of becoming with (what I hope are) insightful historical essays, dynamic philosophical dissertations, immersive listening experiences, and completely new artistic interpretations of classic EPCOT Center concepts. And yet, the journey is just beginning with many new and exciting things taking flight this year and the years to come! In many ways, "we've still just begun to dream! Therefore, it is only fitting that we begin the fifth year the way we started the project with the iconic sunrise over Spaceship Earth.
On this our 5th Anniversary,
Please Share What "The EPCOT Legacy" means to YOU!
Not this site, but the Real Legacy of the City, the Center, & as a State of Mind.
