Disney World Visitor Finds Embarrassing Spelling Error On Highway Sign

Twitter users spotted an unfortunate spelling error front and center on Disney World’s sign last week.

Disney World has a combined total of six theme and water parks available. There are four theme parks: Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park, Magical Kingdom Park, and the Epcot.

There are also two water parks: Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Water Park and Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park.

For first-time park-goers, the experience can be overwhelming with so many options and so many things to see.

Though, there were some people on Twitter who noticed that the Disney World sign was welcoming them to an entirely new park: The “Epoct.” The error was spotted by one Twitter user who quickly shared the news and more people began uploading their own photos of the mistake.

WTVY also published a story on the error on September 28, 2017. The article, “Walt Disney World sign for Epcot incorrectly spelled” was published alongside information of the Epcot Center and what Walt Disney wanted to accomplish with its creation.

The Epcot stands for Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow and was designed to duplicate a futuristic world. It’s also home to the well-known attraction, Spaceship Earth, which millions of people flock to see every year.

The tweet came out on September 26 along with a Facebook post from someone else who made the post shareable on the social media platform. To date, the post has 57 shares, 63 likes, and 19 comments.

On September 28, two days after notices of the error were coming in, Disney announced that they have since fixed the sign.

The “Epoct” Center incident wasn’t the only spelling error that Twitter users pointed out. One snapped a photo of a spelling mistake in one of the signs for The Winding River.

Well, the good news is that Disney can always count on Twitter users to point out their mistakes.
