    Epcot related question

    so i'm headed to WDW for the first time ever this October , and i have a question ( the first of many i'm sure )

    i know there are some cool attractions to be riden at Epcot , my question is in the "world showcase" area , are there atractions for each of the countries represented or is it just more of a stroll around and shop and eat kind of thing??

    also we are planing on 2 days at each park , is there any park we should spend more / less time in?

    Re: Epcot related question

    2 days is recomended to see EVERYTHING at Magic Kingdom and Epcot, but only one day (based on crowds) is needed at Disney Studios and Animal Kingdom. Use the other two days as a relaxing day, a day to go to DTD, or visit other favorite attractions!

    As for WS, there are some rides/movies, but mostly it's a place to eat and shop and discover other cultures.

    Pick up the Unofficial Guide to WDW, it's a life saver.

    Re: Epcot related question

    The World Showcase has different things for each country. There are some attractions and some movies, shops in each place and if you can eat your way around WS I would definitely recommend it. I don't drink but people say drinking your way around is fun as well.

    Mexico - Has a boat ride, I like this and it definitely has its fan base but most people affectionately call it It's a Small World El Mexico. lol

    China - Has a movie.

    Norway - Have a boat ride (Maelstrom)

    America - American Adventure

    Canada - 360 degree movie (the waterfall area in the back is just breathtaking)

    I know there is a ton more, I would also recommend seeing some of the mini shows they offer in each country, Chinese Acrobats, Off Kilter in Canada etc.. its very much worth it.

    I would also like to add how I do each park, given the time.

    MK- 2 days
    Epcot - 2 days
    MGM - 1 day
    AK - 1 day

    Re: Epcot related question

    There are a couple boat ride atractions, an animatronics show, and several movies - as well as live entertainers. Then, there's the nightime spectacle, Illuminations. Don't miss it. By and large, strolling, shopping and dining is what EPCOT is all about. It was designed to be kind of like a world's fair - featuring pavilions that are sponsored by different countries.

    Re: Epcot related question

    In Mexico there is El Rio Del Tiempo. Best ride ever. It is a classic and must be ridden.

    In Norway there is Maelstrom. Not as classic, but still fun, definately ride it.

    China & Canada have 360 movies...they are okay.

    France has a 180 movie...never seen it.

    America has the American Adventure, a huge stage production, definately check it out!

    Be sure to check out The British Invasion (Beatles covers, etc) at the gazebo in the UK pavillion and Off Kilter (celtic rock) in Canada.

    Try your local bookstore, Borders or Barnes & Noble. However, there are several "unofficial" guidebooks to WDW written by many fans who think they are experts. Not sure which of these guides Testrack is refering to.

    Re: Epcot related question

    Most likely the one called "The Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World". It's a tremendous resource. You also might try listening to the WDW Today podcast if you're so equipped. It's always a great source for information on WDW. Just this week, in fact, they covered the World Showcase and what to see there.

    Re: Epcot related question

    The best attractions in world showcase are:

    1# Illuminations-- Make sure you see it.

    2# American Adventure -- It is the best animatronic show ever created

    3# Impressions of France-- As movie presentations go, this is the best!

    4# Reflections of China -- China is such a diverse and interesting country. It makes for a great movie.

    Not to get off the subject, but thanks for the link to the podcast. Can you tell me the 'home' link to this podcast? Thanks.

    Sure! http://www.wdwtoday.com/

    It's one of my favorites. They do it in a roundtable format and one of the hosts is a co-author of the aforementioned Unofficial Guide.
