Epcot tips

If you or your kids are into science & discovery, or if you want to learn about other countries, you'll definitely want to check out Epcot! Here are some tips to help you get the most from your Epcot visit during your Disney World vacation in Orlando!

Disney Epcot theme park vacation tipsVisiting Epcot

  • Although Epcot is an educational park, you may not want to promote it to the kids as such. Nothing takes the fun out of a Disney vacation more than feeling like you're at school! Chances are they'll have fun while they're there, and learn a little bit too!
  • Pick up your FASTPASS for the most popular rides, like Soarin' early in the day. These passes sell out quickly, and you'll be surprised to find yours is for several hours ahead of time. If the passes are sold out, you'll wait at least 45 minutes to ride. (Although with Soarin' it's DEFINITELY worth the wait!)

  • The Soarin' hang gliding simulation at Epcot is incredible!If you're afraid of heights or prone to motion sickness, don't be scared off by the warnings at Soarin'! It's not bad once you 'take off', and the sensation of flying is simply incredible!
  • The Epcot tip board is located in the central hub of Innovations. Check it out to see wait times for the popular attractions.
  • Epcot's "Mexico" at the World ShowcaseWhen you visit the World Showcase, consider taking the ferry across and stopping to see the attractions on the way back. If you do this, you'll only see about of the countries, but it will save you a ton of walking!
  • If you're leery of motion sickness in Mission Space, the attraction offers a 'toned down' version which may be less likely to turn your stomach.
  • Don't skip the Spaceship Earth attraction. (It's what's inside the big ball.) This is a very entertaining journey through time, and the end of the ride features some very fun 'hands on' activities that will keep the kids entertained for an hour or so.

The Epcot dome houses 'Spaceship Earth', an attraction not to be missed!
