EPCOT Center may have been more successful upon opening than some people give it credit for, but I'm not so sure if the issues with public perception were entirely an Eisner myth. This I Love the 80's clip suggests that reception of the original park was more mixed than what a lot of us on this forum would like to believe.That’s Eisnerian revisionist history. EPCOT Center was a success. They certainly didn’t build enough hotel rooms to profit off the park, but Walt Disney Attractions kept the lights on. The studio side of the business dragged down WDP’s stock price, not EPCOT.
