5 More Fun Things To Do At Epcot
Epcot is my favorite Walt Disney World Park. It was created to incorporate Walt Disney’s love of World Fairs and the promise of the future. Twice the size of Magic Kingdom, Epcot (Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow) involves a lot of walking. It is a haven for foodies and those craving education. I love exploring the World Showcase, a representation of 11 countries through art, architecture, restaurants, and cast members. I have already given you a list of 5 Things To Do At Epcot, but here are 5 More Fun Things To Do At Epcot!
#1 Celebrate the American Adventure
Beat the heat by sitting in an air-conditioned theater for a 30-minute presentation chronicling America’s past and future through the works of Audio-Animatronics, film, and music. The theater is elegant and gorgeous.
Do not miss the Voices of Liberty, an a cappella group dressed in period clothing, that sings choral renditions of your favorite Patriotic songs.
#2 Take A Ride On The Test Track
Found in Future World East, Test Track has been pleasing guests for 17 years now. Choose to design your own virtual concept vehicle or save time by letting the computer choose one for you. Vehicles are judged on certain criteria and compared with the other riders. This thrill ride travels 65 MPH and is very fun with its hairpin turns, hills, and surprises along the way.
#3 Explore Spaceship Earth
Did you know that there is a ride inside “the ball” at Epcot? Yupe, Spaceship Earth is one of Epcot’s most noteworthy attractions. The ride takes you through the history of communication, from the Stone Age to the computer age. Spaceship Earth concluded by asking you a series of questions; your answers will create a unique video. Email yourself the video when you exit the ride.
#4 Visit And Eat Your Way Through Germany
At Germany’s World Showcase exhibit, walk through a Bavarian Village with many styles of architecture, dating from the 13th to 17th centuries. It is Oktoberfest year round in this version of 16th century Rothenberg, Germany. The stores sell beer steins, cuckoo clocks, hand-painted eggs, and German Christmas items.
I like eating at Biergarten and having a caramel drizzled cookie from Karamell-Küche (Werther’s caramels) for dessert. The Biergarten is a full-service restaurant serving a dynamic Octoberfest buffet with all of the typical Bavarian wurst sausages, spaetzle, and cabbage. Enjoy live entertainment from an oompah band, dancers, or yodelers. Wine tastings are also available in Germany. Do not miss meeting Snow White at her Wishing Well!

#5 Attend One Of Epcot’s Special Events
Epcot hosts two Special Events during the year: The Wine & Food Festival and the Flower & Garden Show. These events include many free activities, such as guest seminars, concerts, and presentations.
During the Flower & Garden Show, elaborate Disney themed topiaries decorate the park. I love visiting the butterfly pavilion, featuring local and exotic butterflies. Be sure to watch the video showing how much work goes into this event!
In the fall, Epcot puts on the Food & Wine Festival where additional kiosks are set up throughout the park featuring food from around the world. It is a lot of fun!
Have A Great Time At Epcot
Walt Disney World’s Epcot has a lot to offer year-round, but my favorite time to visit the park is when a Special Event is going on. I hope you enjoy these 5 Fun Things To Do At Epcot!
