"Progress City" was a model of the "City of the Future" that was on display in Disneyland for decades

Disney was, of course, inspired by his visit to the 1900 Worlds Fair, and it shaped his design ideas for theme parks. He wanted to integrate theme parks, worlds fairs, and actual communities. This model is part of the early stage of design for what ultimately became EPCOT, but an EPCOT that was largely unrelated to Walt's social engineering dreams, poor guy.
