Must see attraction on Epcot. Tips: * Try the Funnel cake, its AWESOME * Each country has shows. Make sure to know the times in the map to catch them! * There is a museum behind the store in Japan. * The Norway ride has a backwards fall * You can catch glass making inside the Mexico pyramid * enjoy!!

Hands-down this is my favorite Disney park. I regard it as the quieter side of Disney! I never tire of visiting the countries and speaking with the visiting cast members....I enjoy hearing about the places they call home.

Having been to most of the countries in the World Showcase, there of course is no compare. That said, I love being able to just get the flavor of the country in one trip around the lagoon. You really do get the essence of each place. The food and trinkets are surprisingly good and my favorite is talking with some... More

One of the best events to attend are the story telling of various holiday events from each of the countries in EPCOT's World Showcase. We have been to these each year and recommend attending during the early evening to feel the magic of Christmas and the fantastic display of lights. Our personal favorites are United Kingdom, France and Norway. The... More

We have been to see this (from UK) for the last 16 years). For some inexplicable reason the last 10 minutes of the show have been changed. It detracts from the performance and smells of the PC brigade. Disappointing.

Epcot/disney is for all ages. Everyone going to Epcot is a good idea because it is not just about being at Disney it can be a learning experience as well

Being able to go around the world and see aspects and people from these major countries we would not be able to see otherwise was amazing for us all. It actually helped us plan our next vacation as we fell so in love with some aspects we decided we wanted to see the country for ourselves!! Gotta do it!

This is the time of year to go. Orlando is not hot at all and the theme park is decorated for the holiday. Food is always over priced and Disney is not about to change that anytime soon.
