Lost Imagineering: WESTCOT Center

When Disney announced their initial plans for creating "The Disneyland Resort" in late 1991, Disney's California Adventure was nowhere to be seen. Instead, a more compact version of EPCOT Center, dubbed WESTCOT, was the second gate. An article in the Spring 1992 issue of Disney News provided no details about the park's attractions, beyond saying that "The glittering golden sphere of Spacestation Earth will beckon visitors to The Disneyland Resort day and night."

The same article also said near it's end, "Of course, it's still early in the game, and plans can-and usually do-change."
