Shooting Stage

In 2001, The Walt Disney Company celebrated Walt Disney 100th birthday. Part of the celebration was the opening of "One Man's Dream" at Disney's Hollywood Studios park. This very elaborate and extensive exhibition showcase rare artifacts, memorabilia, treasures, props etc... from Walt Disney's career and legacy.

The Original E.P.C.O.T is part of the exhibit which is currently opened for visit. Indeed, the shooting stage of the 1966 E.P.C.O.T film has been recreated with a detailed reproduction of the sets, drawings, plans, television studio and cameras. The shooting stage itself was a recreation of the Florida Conference Room located within the Walt Disney Stuudios in Burbank. The room featured all the concept arts, map, models of the project.
