Here are 5 great tips for Epcot to make your day extra special:
How does Agent P’s World Showcase Adventure work?
Phineas and Ferb-Agent P’s World Showcase Adventure has been recruiting new agents since about 2012. This “mission adventure” takes place in EPCOT’s World Showcase. There are 4 recruitment centers in World Showcase where you can pick up your F.O.N.E. This F.O.N.E will give you interactive clues as you make your way through select pavilions in the World Showcase. It takes about 30-45 minutes, and you can get a great inside look at the pavilions, enjoy some “down time” away from the attractions without leaving the park, and everyone in your family will love it!
How long should I allow for my children to enjoy the Innoventions building in Future World?
Innoventions is FULL of some of the most unique experiences at EPCOT! Technology, science, learning, and experimentation are all available for hands on exploration for your whole family! I think at least an hour in Innoventions is a great way to spend your day. Also, Innoventions is the perfect place to take a break from the heat or the Florida rain.
Where can I eat at EPCOT and also see Illuminations?
World Showcase is full of the best dining options on Disney property. The added bonus-you can see Illuminations from several restaurants around the World Showcase. Two of the best restaurants see Illuminations are the Rose and Crown Pub in England, and the Cantina de San Angel Inn in Mexico. Both of these have tables outdoors, along the water, where you can enjoy food, drinks, and Illuminations. You can request a table on the water when you check in at the podium. Another great tip to see Illuminations is the new EPCOT Sparkling Illuminations Dessert Party. This is a buffet of desserts and sparkling wines from around World Showcase. It is standing at tall cocktail tables for Illuminations, as opposed to sitting.
What is the International Gateway Entrance at EPCOT?
One of the little secrets of EPCOT is the entrance from the Boardwalk area to the World Showcase via the International Gateway. You enter and France is to your right. This entrance opens at the official park opening, even though World Showcase doesn’t open until 11. If you are having a breakfast at Cape May at Disney’s Beach Club Resort, or perhaps Akerhaus in Norway, this entrance is a great option. Many guests travel through the International Gateway to enjoy the Boardwalk Area, and then arrive back at EPCOT for the evening or Illuminations.
What activities are there for my children in World Showcase?
World Showcase isn’t just for grown ups! As mentioned above, Agent P’s World Showcase Adventure takes place in World Showcase. There are several attractions in World Showcase as well. Our family loves to see the princesses and other characters in their “homeland” as well. Each country has CastMembers from that homeland. You can purchase a mock paper passport in World Showcase with a button and some stamps representing the countries. And then when you visit the countries, the CastMembers will have a small craft to do with your children sometimes, and they will stamp and sign the passport. Extra fun for the kids!
