Around the World in 30 days…The EPCOT Experience

As part of our University of Florida graduate program in Social Media, this week I’ve been tasked to be the hypothetical Social Media Manager for Disney’s EPCOT Center for the month of April 2016.   This is all hypothetical, just to showcase how, as a Social Media Manager, I’d personally plan EPCOT’s social media postings for one month.

So, without further delay, let’s take off on EPCOT’s (Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow’s) International journey for the month of April 2016.
