Moving right along on our Vacation-O-Fun…
Day 3 – Disney’s Epcot
I was pleasantly surprised to discover that this was my favorite park of Disney World. Epcot is a combination of a future world and something called, “World’s Showcase.’ The future world has a lot of cool attractions, such as: Spaceship Earth, which is a ride inside the Epcot “ball,” Soaring (one of our faves from Disneyland!), Test Track, where you go up to 60 mph, Caption Eo, and Mission:Space. They also have an environmental area and ride where you see some of the “magic” that Disney is up to, which include growing it’s own plants to serve in some of the restaurants. Plus, they have a short environmental movie called “The Circle of Life,” featuring the characters from The Lion King, that discusses what we can do to help better our planet! Lastly, they have an “innoventions” building that is “interactive play space for kids of all ages where you can imagine, invent, inquire and be inspired while exploring amazing innovations that make our lives better.” So, not only was it fun…it was educational!
The World’s Showcase was really unique area that wraps around a lagoon. It features 11 countries which replicas of their buildings, shops, attractions and restaurants. In fact, we ate lunch in Mexico and dinner in Italy! Where else can you do that, except at the happiest place on Earth?
Italy. China. UK.
Cool Disney character plants throughout the park.
Epot was a lot of fun and we had an enjoyable day there! Stay tuned to see where we went to next…
