EPCOT and other
Florida Attractions



EPCOT

EPCOT is an acronym for "Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow" and opened in 1982 as the second Walt Disney World Resort theme park.

It is twice the size of Magic Kingdom at nearly 300 acres and has two sections, Future World and World Showcase.

Future World is a spectacular showcase of innovation and state-o-the-art technological advancements.

The 26 attractions showcase the land, the seas, communication, imagination, energy, technology and motion. EPCOT also offers "Kidcot" activity centers in each pavilion.

The first major attraction in Future World is EPCOT’s signature 180-foot geodesic sphere, “Spaceship Earth”. Guests board a slow, circling, indoor train and ride past a series of panoramic scenes depicting the march of time, technology and creativity from cavemen through the late 20th century.

“The Seas with Nemo & Friends” Pavilion is home to one of the largest indoor aquariums in the world. “The Living Seas” is designed to appear as the deep-sea research station Sea Base Alpha and features incredible marine life and bright coral structures. Other attractions in this pavilion are “DiveQuest”, “Turtle Talk with Crush” and “The Seas with Nemo & Friends”, an indoor attraction in which guests ride in "clam-mobiles" through an underwater adventure to find Nemo.

Other major attractions include ”Soarin”, a 3-D free-flying adventure over California’s beautiful landscape and “Mission: SPACE”, an interactive simulation flight to Mars that includes blast-off and landing. “Test Track” allows guests to test cars at high-breaking speeds and different forces of nature.

The World Showcase at EPCOT Center is a real life world village that captures the diverse cultures of the world living together in harmony. Guests can travel the globe in one place and experience the food, crafts, music, entertainment and culture of eleven different countries. Cast members in EPCOT Center are also fluent in a variety of languages visible on their name tags.



Parking is available at all Disney Theme Parks for an additional fee. Once the parking fee is paid for one park, it is good for all the other parks for that entire day. Annual Pass Holders and Disney Resort Guests receive complimentary parking. Visit Walt Disney World Vacation Packages to start planning your trip.
