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!
Future World (the first half of the figure ‘8’ park layout) is an interactive technological playground that offers trips around the human body, journeys into space, voyages under the sea and quantum leaps back in time!
Test Track is way faster than you expect and terrific fun! Then head for Ellen’s (De Generes) Energy Adventure a humorous and truly ‘moving’ theatre experience. Innoventions is a hands-on expo of futuristic gadgets and gizmos that any pre-teen or teen will love. Mission Space is definitely the most intense thrill on offer with real ‘G’s’created by a spin on this whirling centrifuge – not for the faint of stomach!
Ride in your very own clamobile over at The Seas with Nemo & Friends, you’ll have a great time with Nemo, Dory and the gang – then head over to Turtle Talk With Crush for lots of interactive fun for little ‘Dudes’! To stay ahead of the throng head to World Showcase (the second half of the figure ‘8’) when it opens mid morning. You can return to finish up Future World later in the day and catch our other recommendations like Soarin’ a simulated hang glider ‘flight’ with big music and big views (not to mention scents). Depart on an all-new journey through the sky, flying high from one extraordinary landmark to the next.
Around the World Showcase Lagoon you can eat, drink, dance and sing your way around the world in the space of a couple of hours! Each of the 11 nations represented has live entertainment so check the performance schedule or else you’ll miss out. A dining reservation for lunch or dinner in one of the excellent EPCOT restaurants is a must. The grand finale to the evening is IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth, a stunning combination of lasers, fireworks, fountains and special effects – do not miss it!
