I just love Epcot.Epcot is a gorgeous park that should be used as a leisurely day off from the hustle and bustle. It is very large and well laid out, It's absolutely beautiful, from the flowers and landscaping to the lagoon and lights at night. Granted, some of the attractions are outdated, but there are enough great ones to make up for them. I recommend coming early to get in line/get a fast pass for Soarin', Mission:Space and Test Track, as they will have long lines. After that's done, relax, take time to look at everything, and grab a few drinks in the World Showcase. Illuminations (its firework show) should NOT be missed! This is the one park that I can easily spend all day in. If you have time, I recommend walking to the Boardwalk from the World Showcase entrance. It's very quick and convenient.

Even though I've traveled to most of the countries highlighted at Epcot, I still love this place. Sure, it's done in a Disney way, but they know how to do fun like no other entity on Earth. I spent a day there watching Chinese acrobats, eating fish and chips and going on amusement park rides. Campy good fun.

Epcot is my favorite park in Disney World! I love everything about it from the cutting edge technology of future to a tour of the world in a matter of minutes! I loved it as a kid and enjoyed it in new ways as I grew up.

EPCOT is unique to Orlando Disney World. There are no other Disney parks quite like it. I think there aren't even any other theme parks like EPCOT.
For most part it is still a very Disney experience except there aren't as many thrill rides. EPCOT focuses on education. You will learn about science, nature and society. The world showcase has a lot of great exhibitions about various culture.
It is safe to say this park is tailored towards adults. You will enjoy the the shops there. EPCOT also has the best restaurant selection out of all Disney theme parks. You won't be disappointed even if you are a crazy foodie like me.

One of my favorite parks in the Resort with many hidden attraction that are overlooked by visitors.
*There's an aquarium upstairs in "The Seas" go check it out. There are sharks, manatees, and lots of Nemos! :D
*Garden Grill in the Land is an extremely popular character dinning. Rating on yelp seem extremely favorable and it's pretty affordable too! I wished that I was able to get a reservation, so if you can get a dinner reservation, get it!
*The American Adventure in "America" is actually a pretty awesome animatronic show. I thought it was going to cheesy, but I was pleasantly surprised.
*I would dedicate at least two days for this park because it's enormous. Do one half of the world showcase on one day and the other on another day.
*The Behind the Seeds Tour if pretty awesome (located behind the Soarin frontdesk). Although there is a fee $16.00 Guests ages 10+, $12.00 Guests ages 3-9, it was definitely worthwhile. You get to release lady-bugs, feed fish, and get a closer look at the garden
*Captain EO is BACK! Go check it out, it's located next to the Figment ride.
*Three most popular rides are (in order): Soarin', Test Track, and Mission to Mars. (Though personally I didn't think much of Test Track since I actually drive that fast on the 405) So select your fast-pass destinations wisely!
How to maximize your day at Epcot :)
1. Get to the park at least 15 minutes before it opens (9am is the usual time). They will let you in but not far enough to go to any of the popular rides, but you will have a leg-up before everyone else at the gate!
2. Skip the Spaceship Earth ride, you should go on it in the afternoon when most of the visitors are in the World Showcase area.
3. I would run to Soarin, get a fast-pass then ride it right away so that you can ride it at least twice :) (yes, it's that fabulous)
Enjoy this wonderful park! :D
