* Creator/WaltDisney's [[WhatCouldHaveBeen original 1966 plan]] for EPCOT as a "community of tomorrow" is often imagined as something like this, but this isn't actually true. The rumor stemmed from confusion as to what exactly Disney's plans were. The city/apartment/hotel portion of EPCOT (aka the center) was indeed planned to be entirely enclosed, but it was meant to be more like a shopping mall, with a massive building housing everything as opposed to a (rather unfeasible) clear dome over the whole city. The other two portions of EPCOT (the "green belt" entertainment complex and the housing developments) were to be completely outdoors. This rumor led to the even more ridiculous rumor that Disney has an invisible dome over their entire Disney World property in Florida, that somehow keeps the rain out (which, as anyone who's visited there during hurricane season can attest, isn't true at all).

** Most of the pilot episode is set in a DomedCity in an AfterTheEnd Earth. The outside world is shown to be quite habitable however, with birdlife and drinkable water, so the implication is that the dome is [[TheWallAroundTheWorld now used as a further means of controlling the populace]].

* The dome over Springfield in the quote from ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsonsMovie'' is a slight reversal. After Springfield has a major environmental disaster [[ItMakesSenseInContext involving pig crap]], it's there [[QuarantineWithExtremePrejudice to let the town go to hell and spare the outside world.]]
