Future World was one of two "lands" at Epcot at Walt Disney World Resort, divided into two sections, Future World East and Future World West. Making up the other half of Epcot is World Showcase, a unique feature of Future World was its inclusion of a monorail track in the park.

Future World was a collection of attractions each focusing on a different theme or topic with Epcot's iconic geodesic sphere of Spaceship Earth located at the entrance of Future World.

Future World was designed as a showcase for the future, showcasing new technology in conjunction with stories often exploring the past, how we progressed to the present and giving a glimpse into the future. The increasing speed of technological advances, changing views of futurism and the demand of the corporate sponsors that partnered with Disney on these various attractions would ultimately prove to be a challenge to the staying power of these attractions.

As part of the park's massive overhaul beginning in 2019, Future World was divided into three sections on October 1, 2021: World Celebration, World Discovery, and World Nature. Consequently, the Future World name was retired.

  • Mickey's Rockin' Celebration (1982-1994)
  • Fountain of Nations (Original: 1982-1992/Refurbished: 1993–2019), an elaborate fountain that performed to music every 15 minutes. Shows were presented in no particular order and included music by John Tesh, Yanni, and from Disney movies such as The Rescuers Down Under and The Rocketeer.
  • Splashtacular- A show that debuted in 1994 and included the Fountain of Nations and ended a few months later. The attraction was closed due to the water from the fountain blowing onto the stage, soaking the performers and the guests. It also would cause the walkways to get very crowded, making it hard for people to get through.

    • The Astuter Computer Revue (1982–1984), presented by Sperry Corporation.
    • Backstage Magic (1984–1994), a show about how computers controlled park operations around Walt Disney World. Presented by Unisys.
