“Information for Learners of All Ages”
On October 3, 1998, the Epcot Discovery Center (formally known as Epcot Outreach and Epcot Teacher’s Center) was officially closed. Opening on July 1, 1994, the area was another educational outpost where guests could ask questions about some of the subjects on display in the Epcot centers, or even questions about Walt Disney World in general. Guests were also able to take home a variety of informational resources.
