WDW Kingdomcast - Episode #028 Walt and the Promise of Progress City

15Jul

On this episode of the WDW Kingdomcast we are joined by the author of "WALT AND THE PROMISE OF PROGRESS CITY" Sam Gennawey! Sam wrote this book with in depth detail of the planning, function, and lay out of what was to be Walt's last big dream "Progress City" or what ended up being EPCOT CENTER as most know it today. Progress City or the Experimental Prototype Community Of Tomorrow was originally conceived to be a futuristic urban city showcasing the latest American industry had to offer. Sam talks with us about Progress City and his research that led to his book that explains in great detail the plans and ideas for what was the main purpose of "The Florida Project".

Stay tuned at the end for an on-ride source audio of Spaceship Earth! (Jeremy Irons Narration)
