Walt Disney World EPCOT

EPCOT or the Experimental Prototype of Community of Tomorrow, is home to two themed areas, Future World and World Showcase. Future World features attractions that focus on energy, communication, the land and environment, the ocean, imagination, transportation, and space exploration. World Showcase features eleven different countries and showcases entertainment, dining, and shopping unique to their cultures.

A few of the ride highlights within Future World include, Spaceship Earth, a     slow-moving ride that tells the history and future of communication. Soarin’ Around World, which can be found in the Land Pavilion, simulates the experience of flying over landmarks that can be found around the world. Another top ride at EPCOT is Test Track. This ride allows riders to design their own custom concept vehicle, then test it out on the track in a six-passenger SimCar. Mission: SPACE is another simulation ride that launches riders into space as you and your crew navigate your capsule to Mars. (This ride offers two different levels of intensity; orange, which offers a more intense training experience and green which offers less). 

While World Showcase is best known for having unique cuisine and entertainment from the featured countries visitors can find the most popular ride at EPCOT in Norway; Frozen Ever After. This water log ride takes you on a journey through Arendelle where you will get to see all of your beloved characters and hear your favorite tunes from the movie Frozen. In addition to this ride, kids can also enjoy learning about each featured country in EPCOT by visiting each Kidcot station. With Kidcot, children can collect passport stamps, activity cards, and hear stories from Cast Members native to those countries. Kidcot is a wonderful way to incorporate learning into a Disney vacation. 

One last highlight about EPCOT is that it is the host park to four different special international celebrations that take place throughout the year. Which include, International Festival of the Arts, Flower & Garden Festival, International Food & Wine Festival, and Festival of the Holidays. 

EPCOT is usually considered more of an adult park but as you can see, EPCOT can be enjoyed by all ages and people from different culture backgrounds.
