Plan around the extra magic hours and the Fastpass sience to be sure to ride Test Track and Soarin' Spaceship Earth is also worth the effort. The boats are an efficient way to get from one side of the park to another. The bakery in France opens early and has great food and breakfast. The perfume shop in France is a treasure. The best gift shop is in Japan.

All in all you know the drill. You exit into a gift shop.
Problem is disney cast members do not even work many of the countries anymore. They contract them off to the third party vendors and as such the qualty and magic is gone. So its not the same place to me that it was when i was young.

Disney keeps cutting back. I understand they have to pay off all of eisners mistakes with the revenue of the parks but now its just to expensive to justify going. Its less for more money. And the gifts are made in china and over priced. Buy gifts at wallmart.

2 parks in one, the back half is a tour of countries from around the world, great experience for adults and kids, front of the park is a wild adventure into technology. Very different park than any others out there.

Epcot was enjoyable in a different way from Magic Kingdom, less crowded but if you want to get on the Soarin ride get there early as both days we visited all fast passes had been given out by 1pm, and queues for standby were at times 2 hours. Not worth that kind of wait.
Don't understand the boring comments from the previous reviewer as the first country we visited - Mexico has the Three Caballeros ride - very suitable for younger children and this is followed by Norway which has a water ride, slightly more exciting but worth a visit. There are other things going on in the other countries and if you want to skip any you can ride the boat across the lake which is something of a short cut. Also went on Land of the Living ride - very short waiting time so enough to keep us entertained before watching the 9pm fireworks show. Set in the middle of the lake it is a lot easier getting a good vantage point than the Magic Kingdom display, although not as exciting. A pleasant park to visit and it's not compulsory to visit all the shops for more over priced Disney souvenirs.

Best ride was Soarin. Mission Space (intense journey) was very good. Innovations had a lot of interactive games for all ages. I was surprised to see Captain EO was fast pass as it wasnt particularly interesting and dated. Enjoyed walking around World Showcase but there just isn't enough to do and excite around here. Wouldn't rush back to this park.
