Epoct? Someone goofs on Disney sign

Typo spotted near Coronado Springs Resort at Walt Disney World

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. – Now that's one goofy sign.

A road sign on Walt Disney World property reads "Epoct," instead of "Epcot."

The typo is located on a sign on Western Way near Buena Vista Boulevard, not far from Disney's Coronado Springs Resort.

Tim Smyth spotted the error Tuesday, and News 6 confirmed that the sign was still up Wednesday afternoon.

Disney said Thursday that the sign has been corrected.

Epcot is one of four theme parks at Walt Disney World. It opened in 1982 as the second theme park after Magic Kingdom.

Epcot is an acronym for Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow, a utopian city of the future planned by Walt Disney.
