“Around the world in half a day”

Epcot World Showcase
Ranked #4 of 442 things to do in Orlando
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed September 20, 2010

The World Showcase is linked to the main Epcot Park but offers a chance to visit 11 different countries and try the local food, see the entertainment and of course buy things from those countries. It is definately worth a visit. This part of the park opens at 11am and is also the best place to be to watch the Epcot Fireworks. It is a must a least once

Recently visited Florida for fifth time with my family .The three kids are getting older now (14/15/17)and appreciate more than childrens rides at Magic Kingdom. We did enjoy all the parks as ever but now find Epcot to be our favourite. This is because of the three reasons in the title. One the thrill rides like Mission space .Take the hard ride you won't regret it.you will feel as if you are in space.Test track is fantastic as you become a test track dummy with a 60mph finish. Best of all is Soarin a simulated glider ride over California just fantastic. Two the food we dined in the afternoon at the Chinese restaurant around the world showcase which was tasty and at a reasonable price. The world showcase has a restaurant in most worlds and the standard in them all seems very good. For our evening meal we dined at LeCellier in Canada this too was to recommend but was slightly more expensive if you are on a budget. And third the shows . We had several musical entertainments during the day to watch and last thing at night the reflections of earth fireworks show to us is the most breathtaking display in all of Disney. To sum up a great day out and will be top of our parks to visit next time with Magic Kingdom a close second.

This is the best place to celebrate a birthday. Florida is beautiful in April. The weather is perfect and Walt Disney World is a feast for the senses. The staff everywhere you go take time to make this celebration special. A highlight was when I boarded the ferry and the Captin on the bridge welcomed me and wished me a happy birthday. All through out Epcot I was wished a happy birthday in different languages, but my favorite was while eating at Tokyo dining, they were especially sweet and thoughtful. It was a great week and a wonderful memory.

The World Showcase in EPCOT is my favorite place at Walt Disney World. If you appreciate culture, if you want to give your children a taste of different cultures, World Showcase will not dissappoint. Each country has gift shops, restaurants, and movies of their country. The area is clean and the staff that runs each country is from the real country. My favorite show is the American Experience. Go see it before the ultra politically correct Disney execs change the show. Canada has a great show and restaurant. Great Britain has a great pub and restaurant. France, well it's France. United States has a great show and nice gift shop. Japan - great food and shopping. Morocco - unique food and shopping. Italy - good restaurant. Germany - good food and great shops. China - good food and shops. Norway - neat ride, good food, and shops. Mexico - nice lunch stop and shops. Adults can try the "Beer Around the World Tour" but make sure you have a ride home. Finally, don't miss the laser/fireworks show. One of the best you will see.
