We went during Covid epidemic and felt totally safe. The parks are clean and safety procedures are being followed very closely. We had to get out of the house so we chose a safe place to go. Temperature checks and mask reminders galore. Plus the International Food and Wine event made for some delicious moments. Epcot is our favorite as adults although we did go to all the other parks. You just have to plan ahead and enjoy getting out of the house.

We arrived to the park via the skyliner which it was pretty fun and fast ride from our Disney Hotel, following the social distance/wearing masks as it is operating with COVID-19 restrictions, so it felt pretty secured. We visited Epcot with the family during COVID-19 time with enforced restrictions. Needed to make an online reservation to enter to the park prior to visit, and we could not use fast pass. They take your temperature at the entrance and enforce to wear two layer masks all time but while eating or drinking. I noted that the staff was limited, they seemed to me a little tense, not as happy as before, so the magic is a little gone. The hours of the park are limited from 11am-7pm, and there is no fireworks show, however I saw a music show in the American pavilion. The lines for the rides run pretty fast and people keep social distance with the marks on the floor, plus there is antibacterial gel, so we felt safe and did not get sick after. We made a reservation for lunch at Teppan Edo in the Japan pavilion which it was nice they only have certain tables open, but it was a good experience. We were able to take many rides, and had fun. Of course the magic is not like before COVID-19, plus there are also some restaurants closed but they have the outside food kiosks from different countries and the line did not take too long. The stores were limiting the amount of people inside following Covid-19 guidance, and there is a linde waiting outside specially in the Japan pavilion, but the wait was no long as the line runs pretty fast. Overall it was not that crowded as before Covid-19, so we really enjoyed the rides, food and atmosphere, just that would love to see it as before again, full of magic.

Outstanding crowd control since entrance is via reservation and park hopping has been suspended due to safety precautions. All visitors must wear masks except when sitting down or standing at a table or benches, plenty all over the park, to eat, drink or for a quick snack. Touchless sanitizing stations are provided all throughout the park and all restrooms are very clean. Staff have to work extra hard to clean/sanitize all rides in between each group of riders but still carried a nice smile and wave to all throughout the day. Not easy tasks for all. Greatly appreciate Disney and all its staff for an amazing family day at EPCOT despite such a challenging time for all. Thank you!

We walked around all day since we had a free pass to use. It was definitely strange with the covid requirements, but we had a great time!

How can you give any Disney park less than a 5/5! Of course the park and experience was magical and amazing my review is more about tips of navigating your time in the park. Even though Epcot was my least favourite park it was still worth visiting once for the character meets and Frozen Ride! Coming from the UK I didn't have local knowledge so done a tone of research for planning my days, the biggest thing to do is pre-book your fast passes because they go quickly, and when I mean quick the exact minute it opened to booked most times/slots were almost instantly not available due to local annual park pass holders and people who stay in the Disney hotels being able to book earlier. At Epcot you don’t really need to pre-book restaurant reservations because all the little destinations as you walk around the park have a tone of quick service restaurants and snack carts selling food from that country so you can basically do a food crawl as you walk through…. which is what we did 😊 When booking fast passes we also made sure to book ones in the morning as once you have used your 3 you can go on the app and book another one, and once that is used then another one and so on. So if you book them earlier you then have more chances of getting further fast passes for the afternoon and can make the most of your day. Also in the weeks leading up look at the line times on the app and only book for rides with long wait times, rides with short wait times you can do in between fast pass slots again making the most of your day and having to wait less in lines. One thing I struggled to find information on was parking, originally on all the blogs i read it wasn't clear on the parking situation but to clarify every park has its own car park and don't bother with the shuttle its just as quick if not quicker to walk from your car to the entrance of the park. The cost was $25 a day. The next thing I LOVED was the free photo passes, everywhere you go professional photographers take a snap, scans your wristband and it uploads to your app so make sure to make use of this facility and get magic bands because it is worth it for the memories! The best attraction by far in Epcot was the Frozen Ever After ride it was surprisingly good and I wished I’d been able to go on it more so make sure to add that to your list! Epcot was also great for character meet and greets as you go through each country the characters from those destinations are there for photo ops, but make sure you look at the app and check the times cause they are not there all day and you need to do a bit of planning to make sure your in the right spot at the right time. The other ride which is a must is Soarin’ Around the World! Hope this helps and if anyone one has any questions you can message me... I had a spreadsheet for each day :)
