The Experimental Prototype Hellhole of Tomorrow
EPCOT would have 100,000 people living there, but everyone would be there temporarily - the maximum would be 9 months. No one under 18 or over 65. No schools. No one could vote. Of course no one would own their house. No small businesses allowed, instead everyone would work for mega-corporations. No cars, everyone would ride people movers or monorails.
The idea would be similar to a cruise ship, or living in a mall or in Truman. People would work at the theme parks or in high tech jobs. Except there wouldn't have been enough jobs for everyone.
There is no way this could have worked. Which is why the Walt Disney Co. totally abandoned this vision and make a world's fair sort of thing.
