Emily in Epcot on a very cold day in December. Paddington Bear was her souvenir.
I am so excited about this next park.
Epcot is supposed to resemble Walt Disney’s original ideas for a self-containing community. And there are some very interesting attractions based on these ideas. But, in all honesty, Epcot is really just a daily world fair. There are two sections to the park: Future World and World Showcase. Future World is all about science: energy, space, the seas, agriculture, etc. The World Showcase brings to life 11 separate countries (plus an African outpost), featuring their exotic cuisines, customs, music, etc.
If you’re visiting WDW for the rides, then you will enjoy Future World more than World Showcase. Only two of the countries in the World Showcase feature a ride, the rest all have shows or movies. However, if you are really trying to get a well-rounded vacation, then Epcot is definitely worth 1 to 2 days of your time. Hubby and I love the fun and excitement of M.K., but one of our favorite parts of the vacation is walking through the World Showcase and trying foods from other countries. I will warn my big-bellied fans, though: Epcot is huge. The Word Showcase surrounds a very large lagoon and you will spend a lot of your day tracking the miles at Epcot. Fear not, the food’s worth it!
In every Disney park, there is one very large attraction that represents the park. At
By the way, here is an interesting fact about the geometric designs on the ball: those shapes actually serve a purpose. Whenever it rains in

Next time, I will work on some parts of Future World.
