Disney World’s Epcot in Florida has two areas; Future World and World Showcase—both with very distinct attractions and experiences to offer. This means that you can enjoy two very different parks at the entry price for just one!
Future World demonstrates the true vision of Walt Disney: technology and innovation. Here you’ll find popular attractions like Test Track, The Seas with Nemo and Friends, and the infamous Spaceship Earth.
The World Showcase, on the other hand, takes you on a delightful journey around the world, featuring around 11 pavilions from different countries. The Norway pavilion has the Frozen Ever After attraction where you can ‘Let It Go’ all over again and meet Anna and Elsa! Other attractions include The American Adventure and Soarin’ Around the World.
If you’re planning to visit Epcot, then you’ll need a few tips to make your trip as entertaining and worthwhile as possible. Here’s everything you need to know:
Stay In a Nearby Hotel
If the top priority on your list is Epcot, then you’d want to save all the time you can to explore the world of Epcot. This means finding a hotel near Epcot. Some of the places that you can consider are the Beach Club Resort, Yacht Club Resort, and Dolphin resorts. All of these resorts provide easy access to Epcot and Hollywood Studios.
Comfortable Shoes are a Necessity!
If you think Disney World’s Magic Kingdom is huge, Epcot is twice its size! So you’ll definitely need to wear comfortable shoes.
Catch the Early Hour
Everybody dreads waiting in long queues. Avoid the long lines by reaching early! Try coming in when the park opens and get the chance of experiencing all the exciting rides and magical experiences before the queues start lining up!
A great way to save time is to reserve time for your favorite attractions in advance. You can use the FastPass+ to reserve time for up to three attractions.
Lunch and Dinner Reservations
World Showcase in Epcot is known for the best dine-in places in Disney World. Needless to say, these restaurants are fully booked by lunch and dinner, so the best way to enjoy a meal here is to make an advance reservation.
Take a Break
If you’ve managed to arrive early, then it’s likelier that your group will begin tiring out around mid-day. Don’t push them and take a break. Maybe return to your hotel for a short nap or take a lunch break before you resume your trip.
Dinner and Fireworks
You probably only got to try one country’s cuisine during lunch, so you can head back to World Showcase to taste another country’s cuisine for dinner.
Make sure you arrive early and grab a viewing spot to see the fantastic IllumiNations fireworks display! It’s something you definitely don’t want to miss!
