WestCOT concept for Spacestation Earth.

WestCOT was a planned park at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California. It was intended to be a west coast version of Epcot, a park devoted to international science and knowledge which is located at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida. Imagineers intended WestCOT to correct any mistakes that Imagineers made in designing Epcot, which at one time was dubbed "the future envisioned by Republicans" by critics. Owned and operated by the Walt Disney Company, the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California is home to two theme parks, three hotels, and a shopping and entertainment area. ...

Resorts were intended to be built on WestCOT property, a groundbreaking move for a Disney resort, since WestCOT would be the first Disney theme park of its kind to have resorts actually on its property. This resort feature, however, was later implemented into the Hotel MiraCosta at Tokyo DisneySea, and is considered to be a remnant of the original WestCOT plans. Tokyo DisneySea is a theme park, opened on September 4, 2001. ...


WestCOT was intended to be built on the former parking lot of Disneyland, and Disney's California Adventure was eventually built on the property that WestCOT was meant for.

There would have been a shuttle system to the center of WestCOT from the parking lot, dubbed Center Court.


A replica of Spaceship Earth from the Walt Disney World Resort would have been built at WestCOT, but it would have been known as SpaceStation Earth instead. However, when Anaheim residents said they'd see the giant structure from "their backyard", (with SpaceStation Earth planned to be 300 feet tall instead of Spaceship Earth's 180 feet), plans were made instead for a giant white spire to be the center of the park. The Spaceship Earth structure houses the ride of the same name, and is the symbol of Epcot. ...


Adventure Thru Inner Space would have been cloned to WestCOT, but it would have been known as Cosmic Journeys, and not only would it have "shrunk" guests to see what being inside an atom is like, the ride would have also "grown" guests to see the entire universe.

WestCOT was announced in December of 1991 and was scrapped sometime around 1995.

Disneys America was an abortive theme park that was to be built in Haymarket, Virginia. ...
