It can be easy to say that EPCOT if Disney’s least favorite park for many out there. However, I am here to have you love EPCOT and find the golden spots around the park.
If there is one place is Disney World that has the best food and the most variety of foods is EPCOT. The food options at EPCOT vary from season to season and from festival to festival. Starting the year with the Festival of the Arts and ending it with the Festival of the Holidays, EPCOT goes all out for food. Especially during Food and Wine Festival, EPCOT goes all out and it’s busy pretty much every day with guests from all over the world eating and drinking.
2. Concert Series
I love festival times at EPCOT because it usually has a great line up of artist for their concert series. From the Candlelight Processional to Eat to the Beat, artists come to Disney to delight the guest with their songs. My favorites always are Jon Secada at the Flower and Garden Festival and Boyz II Men during Food and Wine Festival. And let’s not start talking about the Candlelight Processional and John Stamos speaking to me (I know, I know… but I LOVE John Stamos!)
While I have never participated in RunDisney, I have worked races for Disney and they are fun! I have stood in the rain for 2 hours cheering on the racers and they love it! My cousin and auntie did the princess run and I can’t wait to join them for the next one!
4. Annual Passholder Exclusives
I recently discovered theses after having an Annual Pass for a full year. EPCOT has its own pavilion for passholder events. Exclusive merchandise can be found in this pavilion and they have presentations and food for purchase. While it might be targeted towards a group specifically, if you have an annual pass EPCOT should be one of your favorite parks at Disney World.
EPCOT has some of the coolest, most innovative attractions in Disney World. Soarin’, Test Track, Mission: Space, Spaceship Earth and let’s not forget the most important: the Mexican river cruise with Los Tres Caballeros. EPCOT is full of attractions for the young (Frozen ride) and the old (World Showcase).
There are no words to describe how cool Illuminations is. Actually, there are! Illuminations is amazing! A 360 view of fireworks to an amazing soundtrack. What else can you ask for!
7. World Showcase
Where else can you go and visit 12 countries in one day? Where else can you go, and taste foods from all over the world in one stop while also enjoying their unique cultures. World Showcase is the place to go. Mexico, Norway, China, Germany, Italy, USA, Japan, Morocco, France, the UK, and Canada. Visiting different countries is my favorite pastime! I just love how cast members from those countries work there and bring their culture to life!
So there you go! 7 reasons why EPCOT is underrated compared to all the other Disney World parks. GO TO EPCOT PEOPLE! It is full of culture, food, drinks, and fun.
All the Love!
