5 Awesome Things To Do At Epcot
I have been a Walt Disney World Passholder for three years now. Although I visit Disney quite often, I am always looking for new things to do. Epcot is my favorite park; I love walking around the World Showcase. With 37 attractions, 29 entertainment options, 71 restaurants, and 58 shops, planning your day at Epcot can be overwhelming. Here are 5 awesome things to do at Epcot!
#1 Sample Coca-Cola From Around The World
Future World’s Cool Club lets you try Coca-Cola from countries across the globe. They all taste different! Try as many versions as you would like from the self-serve soda fountain. One is absolutely disgusting (there are several blog posts talking about how horrible it is), but I will let you figure out which one it is. You can also shop for Coca-Cola souvenirs in the gift shop.
#2 Take Advantage Of All That Canada Has To Offer
Canada has a great steakhouse, Le Cellier. Opt to have dinner here. Read about my visit to The Le Cellier Steakhouse.
There are two entertainment options in Canada. The first, watch a 360 degree Circle-Vision film “O, Canada” narrated by Martin Short. The second is a 20-minute Canadian Lumberjack Show where four lumberjacks compete for bragging rights in axe throwing, log rolling, and crosscut sawing. Stay afterwards and have your pictures taken with the lumberjacks.
#3 Sightsee In The United Kingdom
I love exploring the United Kingdom at Epcot because is one of my favorite European countries. There is one building for each century of British History. Enjoy the English Gardens fashioned to look like Hyde Park, take a picture in the phone booth, hear British rock music, and find your family’s coat of arms. Pooh Bear, Mary Poppins, and Alice In Wonderland can be found in the United Kingdom.
Shopping is plentiful as there are several stores to choose from selling soccer gear, tea, coat of arms and swords, and all things Britain, like the Rolling Stones and Beatles attire. Eat Fish & Chips at the Yorkshire County Fish Shop, a quick-service restaurant. Pair your fish with some malt vinegar and wash it down with a Bass Ale or Harp Lager.
#4 Enjoy Photo-Ops With Disney Characters
Acting like an adult goes out of the window when I see a Disney character. They are so fun and friendly that smiling for your photo comes naturally. Pick up a guide at Epcot’s entrance with the characters’ appearance times on it. This is the best part of a Walt Disney World vacation for a lot of people!
Characters at Epcot: Anna and Elsa, Alice In Wonderland, Baymax, Belle, Daisy Duck, Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Goofy, Donald Duck, Joy and Sadness, Mary Poppins, Mulan, Jasmine, and Snow White.
#5 Attend A Free Concert
Epcot offers several free concerts throughout the year, including during their Food & Wine Festival and Flower & Garden Show. Some people choose to wait in line for hours to secure a seat close to the stage, while others stand around the back to hear the concert. I love getting to hear musicians that I have been listening to my whole life play for free. This ranks high in my book for “do not miss” attractions at Walt Disney World!
