Epcot Attractions

There is so much to do and experience at Epcot! While this park is known for the food and drinking there are a lot of fantastic attractions to do at this park as well. Let’s a take a look at the breakdown of each attraction at Epcot.

Split into two separate sections, Future World and World Showcase. Future World has a focus on technology and the different areas of science. When you enter into World Showcase, it is a display of the different cultures of the world.

While this is a great park, I don’t recommend it for families focused on little ones, especially if their trip is 5 days or less. There is less to do with kids here and your time would be better spent at another park.

Future World

Test Track

FP+ available? Yes

Time: 3 min intro, 5 minute ride
Suitable for: Anybody 40″ or taller who can handle some jerky movements and high speed
Recommended? Yes
When to visit: First 30 minutes after park open or hour before park close, or use Fastpass +
Tips: If you are tall opt for the front row there is more leg room. Also, if the line is long try out the single rider line.
If you feel the need for speed then you should hit Test Track and reach speed of 65 miles per hour. First you will build your own sim car to take on the track and test out. Challenge your family and see whose car can win out on the track!
