Disney Park / Activity · Theme Park
With no parades or water park, Epcot is not your typical theme park. It's divided into two sections: Future World celebrates technological innovation, while the World Showcase focuses on international culture. Take a time machine-themed dark ride though the history of humankind at the park's landmark 18-story geodesic sphere. Have a space adventure in a motion simulator, or design a concept car and take it for a "test drive," a thrill-inducing ride. In the World Showcase, pavilions representing 11 different countries encircle a lake. Take a gentle ride on a Viking ship, marvel at the Chinese acrobats, or order a stein at the German beer garden. Kids can make free crafts and get a special stamp at each country. Each pavilion almost exclusively employs citizens from the represented countries, so you can get a native's perspective on any questions you have. To avoid lines, use the FastPass+ system to book reservations for some key attractions, but be aware the slots fill up fast for the most popular ones. With our online itinerary creator, Orlando attractions like Epcot can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • Other than Soaring you are not coming here for the rides. Most are little boat rides with animation. Same thing you'd get at the Jersey Shore without the high ticket price. Early April, most lines...  more »
  • The rides are great but if you are going to Epcot you are going to see and experience and different countries. Therefore you need to try all the food!! Make sure you make reservations ahead of time.....  more »
  • So we went to Epcot today. Wore our masks as asked. It was a hot day so eventually you feel like you are suffocating. Watch out for the mask police! Good grief. We watched one girl leave her post as....  more »
  • Epcot offers unique experience of getting to see different countries at one place. Each country's pavilion is decked up in such a splendid way. You get the real feel of being in that country. The attention to detail is impeccable. A good place to spend a day with friends and family. Where sneakers or comfortable shoes as there is so much to walk and explore. The food is good too. You can eat at any country's pavilion which makes your trip even more enjoyable. Food of course is expensive but is worth spending.
  • The Magical Epcot Vacation Experience of a lifetime. Epcot was the most, magical all adventure experience ever. My two son's loved the talking turtle name crush. This amazing Disney Turtle, name Crush was having a real conversation with my son Rain. And the breathe taking ride, called soaring we road the ride at least 3 times. My youngest son had so much fun, meeting all his Disney favorite characters. Most of all, he loved hang out with Chip and Dale the famous Disney Chipmunks. Every guest has to visit, the Epcot International Food Festival in September- October each year!
  • What's not to love, it is part of Disney parks. Everyone is always friendly. The decor for each of the countries is great. Though, I am not sure why a USA is needed. They already do up USA pretty well in the Magic Kingdom, Liberty Square and such. I think it would be great to revamp that area for another country or part of the world. We loved the photographers around the different areas and made sure to have as many photos done as possible. We did this in all parks and plan on buying the photo pass photo album, yeah expensive...worth it. We sampled foods from different areas and while they were not exactly like eating from those countries, some were fairly close. I cannot rate any of the alcohol, sorry we do not drink much anymore. We also rode only a few of the rides, but enjoyed what we rode. We watch the show with Crush, really great even as an adult. Epcot was remodeling and can't wait to come back to see the changes. Thank you Disney. We had an awesome time. 😁
  • I had a great time at the International Art Festival. I am so glad they decided to add food stations like they do with the food and wine festival. It is so much more enjoyable with all of the food and beverage options. I will suggest that everyone takes advantage of the souvenir popcorn bucket they do at the parks. The $2 refill is a great way to be able to snack all day without breaking the bank. And stop by the popcorn stand in Canada for maple popcorn. Right now, they also offer Carmel apple popcorn during the art festival. It is a great addition and a welcome treat. Plus, you can't beat $2 refills!
  • What an amazing place to experience all parts of the world! It is quite the experience. It may not be geared for younger children like many of the other parks, but it has its children's section and the movies and shows would be great for them as well! The various foods are amazing and they employ young men and women from the various parts of the world so that you can hear the accents, speak with them about their countries and truly experience the culture. The fireworks in lagoon at 9 pm are so good and choreographed to music. We were able to watch a few of the shows and they are amazing. The entire experience was a great and memorable one! Would highly recommend.
