“A great whirlwind trip around the world.. and then some!”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

Like all Disney properties, the attention to detail is amazing. The different countries made you feel like you were really there.. from the entertainment and food to the activities and music, we felt we'd been traveling. Take advantage of the movies in China and Canada. Don't miss the drummers in Japan or the candy making in China. Have a glass of fresh mint tea in Morocco and enjoy a delicious pastry in France or caramel apple in Germany.

We also loved the Lion King movie the Land and the aquarium in The Sea. The Test Track was down when we were there, but we loved Soarin' (I recommend going their first thing and getting a fast pass), Mission to Mars.. and I LOVE what I call the "golf ball" ride. It is so interesting and relaxing.. and who wouldn't want Judy Dench talking in your ear for 10 minutes! There is usually no wait for this ride, but it is fun and entertaining when you get to design your own future at the end.

If you get tired, grab a mickey ice cream and watch the fountains outside the Imagination building.

The night show at 9 pm on Friday and Saturday is awesome and make you love the world and want to protect it.

So many things to do, see, smell, explore, hear. It is a treat. There is also a new thing for kids that looked really fun. They get a little cell phone looking thing and search for clues around the park. I love this place.

“Ok park”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

We like some bits of this park but some of it is just not our 'cup of tea'. Soaring is amazing but always a long queue, normally an hour! Worth it though. Test Track is another favourite but was closed for work being done on it. Mission space great too. Water features are very nice. A more relaxed park than others.

“Drunk crowd at Food and Wine Festival”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

Disney - you disappoint. First time at Epcot where I felt that it was an inappropriate place for my kids (they are 10 and 14). WAY too many drunk people - crowd was unruly and bumping into everyone. Less wine and beer at the festival would be a better idea, and maybe more security to take care of the fools who can't act adult at an amusement park full of kids. Shameful.

“A lot to see here”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

This resort is really quite special. The world showcase allows you to literally travel around the world and experience different cultures with natives.

There is a Star Wars ride, which is supposed to be different everytime you ride it. I hope that's true because our ride was quite disappointing.

Michael Jackson in 3D is quite good, but I remember seeing it in the 1980s when I first visited Epcot!

“Like being a kid again!”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

Myself and three girlfriends decided to spend a day at Epcot during a girl's week-end getaway. It was like being a kid again only this time, we didn't take the kids and enjoyed doing "goofy grown-up" things. The park is spotless, the staff is always smiling and helpful and the food and drink was delicious. We had only to wait 45 min to enjoy the Soarin' ride which, although could have been longer, was amazing. The countries were laid out nicely and we enjoyed visiting every one of them. The fireworks were, well, let's put it this way; one would have to experience it themselves to fully understand how beautiful the show of color and choreography truly was.
Finally, after waiting 53 years, I got my genuine Minnie Mouse ears, albiet, the "Princess version".
Would I do it all over again??? Of course I would! What a magical land it truly was!
