The statue, fondly named “Walt the Dreamer,” encapsulates Walt during the later years of his life as he envisioned the Florida Project and the Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow (EPCOT). The statue portrays Walt in a moment of satisfaction, appreciating the magnificence of his actualized dream: a park symbolizing sheer optimism and celebrating the enchantment of potential.

Each garden nestled in the heart of World Celebration, including Dreamers Point, seamlessly links to the surrounding areas, integrating the architectural heritage of EPCOT, contemporary lighting elements, and a range of natural textures.
