The most exciting and, by far, the most important part of our Florida project, in fact, the heart of everything well be doing in Disney World, will be our experimental prototype city of tomorrow. We call it EPCOT. – Walt Disney
Epcot is one of my favorite parks at Disney, you can travel the world in one day!
Let’s start in Future World! Test Track is a ride where you create your own car and test it in many different ways to see whose car is the best. It’s really fun to see who can design the coolest, fastest car! Nearby, Mission: Space is a ride where you are in a spaceship and are trained to control the ship to succeed on the mission. I think this is a great ride because you can see what it is like to be an astronaut. There are two versions of this ride – Green and Orange. Green Mission is less intense and easier to complete. Orange Mission is harder to complete and requires more effort, plus it is more intense. Warning for those who may get motion sick.
The west side of Future World is home to a Disney World classic – Soarin’. On Soarin’, you are suspended in the air as you travel the world. You can feel the wind in your face and smell the world around you. Over in The Seas Pavilion is The Seas with Nemo & Friends. This is a really family friendly ride that is very similar to the Little Mermaid ride in Magic Kingdom. You board a “clam-mobile” and live some of your favorite scenes from the movie.
The Word Showcase is part of the park that includes 11 country-themed pavilions. The pavilions include restaurants with native foods, attractions, and shops. Fun Fact: all of the cast members in each country are actually FROM that country. Frozen Ever After, located in Norway, is a journey through the world of Elsa and Anna. This one is one of my favorites, I love all of the magic in it! The American Adventure is a attraction, not a ride, where you see America’s past, present, and future through movie clips and anamotronics. I love history so this one is right up my alley. Coming soon is Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure, where you are in a rat’s point of view and scurry through the supersized world of Gusteau’s restaurant. I am so excited to see this when it comes out!
Join me next week for my review of a super-allergy friendly bakery in Disney Springs!
