“Worth the money - Disney for Kids and Adults.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2011

You get your money back on the Soarin ride and the Future exhibit. There are alot of interactive elements and kids learning and fun. Many aspects of the Showcase are undeniably good you can feel transported to the different parts of the globe. There are two things about Epcot the first that if this is your first trip to Disneyworld its a learning experience altogether you will experience something quite ultimate and grand and get a chance to appreciate what is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. At a peak Epcot can recieve about 50000 people a day and at a low 25000 people. Secondly yes some of the rides do feel dated given the general advancement in technology but thats not a bad thing. Epcot has shown to me that its advancing by changing some if the rides its has a remarkably high interactive element with use of technocology that I have known any theme park to have. Some of the datedness can be seen to be celebratory of all that is kitch about Disney, Lets face it when we know we are going to Disney we have the Disney dream which is magical.

“Our FAVORITE spot at Disney!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2010

My husband and I LOVE the world showcase at Epcot. Make SURE you:
1. Have a Margarita in Mexico and take the cute little ride inside the building!
2. Eat either lunch or dinner in Morocco. Eat at the "fast food" place. The food is delish and inexpensive too! We love it.
3. Go to the bakery in France and have a pastry! If you are dieting split one. They are SO good. The Napoleon is AMAZING.
4. See the fireworks at night, I believe they are at 9:30. Again: A M A Z I N G!!!!!

“The Mall Has More Culture!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2010

Very Disappointed!! Tickets are way over priced, the employee job cuts are really showing! I have never seen a Disney park so dirty! The ponds are showing a lot of neglect. Several fountains were broken. And the lighting at night was down right dangerous! Many people had trouble seeing where they were going! The different cultures, cuisine and shopping..., was nothing more then a day at an over priced mall in any Major American City!

“OK day until the night club at night”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2010

EPCOT has so much to offer that it is hard to get to it all in one day. We tried our hardest thought saving many of the countries for the evening. Boy was that a mistake. DO NOT bring a family with young children to the World Showcase during the evening during the Food and Wine festival unless you are expecting a club like atmosphere complete with girls in club attire and wearing Beer Glasses and beer spilling on you. I was very dissapointed at this bad ending to an otherwise great day. EPCOT is truly a magical place but I just wanted to provide this warning so that you can plan your day appropriately if you don't want your young children exposed to this also.

“Turtle Talk in The Land Pavilion, Epcot, is perfect for preschoolers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2010

Be sure to walk into the intimate theater, for the "Turtle Talk" exhibit in The Seas, where your little guy or gal can sit up front on the carpet, and talk to CRUSH from FINDING NEMO. It's a fun, educational, and interactive exhibit, just the right length to hold their attention, and let's face it, Dudes, Crush is the coolest amphibian in the deep blue sea. He rocks!
