Epcot

Educational Theme Park Attraction in Orlando

Epcot is a science and technology theme park and one of the four areas which make up Orlando’s famous Walt Disney World Resort. The 18-storey spherical Spaceship Earth ride at its heart is the iconic image of the park and is just one of over 30 attractions which make it the third most-visited theme park in North America.

Taking an fun and educational approach to entertainment, Epcot does not focus on the rollercoasters and famous characters which are firm fixtures of the other three parks which make up Disney World. Instead, the park has two areas: Future World, demonstrating human endeavour and innovation, along with World Showcase, which is effectively a permanent world’s fair with 11 nations represented around a giant manmade lake, with boats available to carry you between each one. Each nation is incredibly detailed and is really an immersive experience for the whole family. We would go as far to say that Epcot has more to offer the whole family than any other theme park in Orlando.

Future World includes attractions which teach about various energy sources, space exploration, automotive development, technological innovations, health, underwater exploration, horticulture, among other subjects. They are brought to life using theatres, a centrifugal force simulator, a slot car ride, interactive games, an aquarium and more. Many of the rides and pavilions are sponsored and supported by the industries they teach about.

Epcot’s World Showcase is home to pavilions themed around Mexico, Norway, China, Germany, Italy, Japan, Morocco, France, United Kingdom, Canada and the United States. Each is staffed primarily by nationals from each country, who demonstrate the cultures of their home nations through rides, shows, live entertainment and the pavilion’s design. This includes German timber-frame houses and biergartens, Japanese pagodas, Moroccan minarets, and Yorkshire fish ‘n’ chip shops in the UK.

Other than German beer and the UK’s favourite seaside treat, you will find more than 60 other dining options, drawing from cuisines from around the world. There are also plenty of shops, ATMs, restrooms and other facilities. The fun of Epcot is really found in just strolling around and soaking up the incredibly realistic sights. 

As with the other parks at Disney World, day-passes can be bought separately or you can access Epcot with the flexible ‘park-hopper’ ticket option. A one-day ticket for just Epcot will cost $97 for ages 10+ and $91 for ages 3-9. Multi-day passes are incrementally cheaper, with a five-day pass costing $63 for 10+ and $59 for 3-9. The park-hopper option adds $64 to the price of your ticket.
