Epcot seems to get lost in the Disney experience. Aside from their Food and Wine Festival, I haven’t heard it mentioned very often. I’m not sure why as everyone in my family enjoyed our trip to Epcot! Epcot had attractions for adults and a some for children, too. We even saw Uncle Jessie there!
Because we couldn’t get a Fast Pass (you can read about those in our Disney Trip post) for the Test track (presented by Chevrolet), we went there first. The boys had so much fun they both wanted to ride it again! It is a very neat attraction where you can see various cars, then design your own. Last, you get to test out the car you designed and go on a really fast racetrack!
Then, the boys wanted to ride the spaceship ride, but my little princess wasn’t tall enough. So, we wandered around while the boys rode the spaceship ride.
We sat down to watch Captain EO, which is a mini-movie with Michael Jackson. I was excited to see him dance, but my daughter’s bladder had other plans. My husband didn’t enjoy it, but I think I would have liked watching Michael dance.
Then we were off to our Fast Pass of Turtle Talk with Crush. It was a cute little show with Crush from the Little Mermaid. It was almost like an interactive TV show. It was funny and the children enjoyed it.
Next was Epcot’s world showcase, which is a nice mile stretch of little mini-towns. There are shops with food and drinks from each country. The kids enjoyed Norway as there was a house which showed various items that inspired the movie “Frozen”.
We also had lunch at Aksrus, which has lunch with the princesses. We got to take pictures with Belle upon entering. Then, during our meal, we were greeted by Snow White, Princess Aurora, Ariel and Cinderella. There was even a parade where all the little ones walked around with the princesses. My daughter loved it so much!
Next, we used our Fast Pass for Soarin’. This ride flies you up and around to experience the best sights, smells and sounds of California. You feel like you are flying! We all enjoyed this ride (although I started getting a little motion sick).
Lastly, we went on Planet Earth, which was a ride that explored the last 30,000 years. It was interesting to me, but my children only liked the part where they took a picture of us and we could see them on our little TV screen.
Have you been to Epcot? What did you think? I would love to hear it in the comments below or on social media!

We love visiting Epcot. Our kids love exploring the other countries and sampling food/treats from around the world. They really love the Test Track, Soarin’, and the Aquarium. It’s not as crowded as the other parks and I think that makes it more enjoyable for everyone.
I totally agree with you! All of us had so much fun there! Thanks for stopping by the blog.
Oh my gosh, Uncle Jesse! Haha! I’ve never been to Epcot or Disneyland at all. Maybe some day – Epcot sounds pretty cool!
wow! I like that different countries food part.
I have never heard about Epcot. After reading your post , I wanted to add epcot also to my bucket list after baby 🙂 thanks for sharing your experience.
Looks like you had a great time. How cool to see a celebrity there! The last time I was there we were there to see my son march with his marching band. That was certainly the highlight of the trip for me, but Disney really knows how to do things right. Everything is so clean and they pay attention to every detail. My Gilr Scouts are saving to go to Florida next year. That’s a bunch of cookies to sell………that is for sure.
We did. Thank you. Best of luck on the cookie sales!
Lot of useful information.. Enjoy reading your log, thanks for sharing ..
