Expect a very full day at EPCOT (it stands for Every Person Comes Out Tired!), as it’s really two parks in one, shaped like a giant figure ‘8’. The park is as much educational as it is entertaining, with the Disney characters never too far away! Originally named EPCOT Center the park was inspired by an unrealized concept developed by Mr. Disney before he passed away. EPCOT opened on October 1, 1982, and spans a total of 300 acres – that’s more than twice the size of the Magic Kingdom park. It’s largely dedicated to the celebration of human achievement, namely technological innovation and international culture.The park is divided into two distinct sections – Future World & World Showcase.

What is FastPass+?

What are Park Hopper Tickets?
Park Hopper Tickets allow you to travel between Disney Theme Parks as often as you’d like. Alternatively, without a Park Hopper Ticket, you would only have the ability to visit 1 park per day. With Park Hopper Tickets, you can enjoy as many Disney Theme Parks as you’d like for your allotted vacation time.

Epcot is divided into two main themed areas: Future World and World Showcase. The World Showcase usually opens two hours after park opening and remains open later than the Future World section of the park. Most major attractions in Future World remain open until the park’s closing time. A secondary park gate is located between the France and United Kingdom pavilions of World Showcase and is known as the International Gateway.
