A trip to Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida is filled with opportunities for magical moments to be enjoyed. Whether you’re traveling this way with kids, or you’re simply a kid at heart, there’s something endlessly thrilling about a visit to this destination that’s dedicated to bringing wonder and enchantment to life. Disney World welcomes over 40 million guests through its park gates each and every year and many of those guests have their sights set on the fun and excitement of Epcot specifically. One of four major parks that make up the Disney World Resort, Epcot is a versatile and unforgettable destination designed to be enjoyed from the moment you step foot inside.
Epcot first opened to the public in 1982 and is to this day, often recognized first by its iconic white globe. The globe is formally known as Spaceship Earth—a title that also refers to the ride based within the globe that’s as thrilling as it is fun! Epcot is home to a long list of rides, entertainment venues, and attractions that are sure to inspire guests from near and far. Here, visitors can enjoy activities that focus on underwater journeys, trips into space, and even voyages that take them around the world. While a ride on Mission: SPACE takes visitors to new galactic heights, Living with the Land provides a futuristic view of the planet. Feeling musical? The Beauty and the Beast Sing-a-long attraction is the place to start at Epcot while those looking forward to underwater thrills will love journeying under the waves with Nemo and friends while Reef Base and Sea Fish round out the underwater fun. Of course, when global exploration is top of mind, you can journey through countries and cultures by wandering through Epcot’s World Showcase. Before the park closes each day, guests are treated to a laser light show that’s as innovative as it is inspiring.
