Epcot Overview

Spaceship Earth is the symbol of Disney's EPCOT theme parkAlthough it's mainly known for its "international flavor" thanks to the Avenue of the Americas attraction, Disney's Epcot theme park has a variety of rides and attractions to entertain you for the entire day. Although Epcot lacks genuine 'thrill rides', attractions such as "Spaceship Earth", "Test Track", and "Mission: Space" help make Epcot worth the trip. While in the park, you'll definitely want to check out "Soarin'", which was moved to Walt Disney World's Epcot theme park from Disneyland. Soarin' makes the trip worthwhile in and of itself!

The World Showcase Lagoon at Disney's Epcot theme park

Disney's Epcot theme park is composed of two sections: Future World, and World Showcase. Future World celebrates innovation and inventions on land, sea, sky, and space, and features a number of hands on and interactive exhibits. Future world is comprised of separate pavilions arranged in a circle around a central hub called "Innoventions".

The other main section of Epcot is the World Showcase. The numerous pavilions of Epcot's World Showcase are arranged in a circle around the World Showcase Lagoon. You can walk completely around the lagoon (a very long walk!) to visit each country, or you can take a ferry across the lagoon to either of two points on the other side.
