    Anyone know how far it is...?

    I have a question for anyone who is familiar with Epcot and good at estimating distances!

    I was wondering how far it is from the front of the park to the UK pavillion. Or how far it is around the WS lagoon. I don't need exact figures or anything, just a decent guess. I'm completely useless at estimating distances.

    I know it probably seems like an odd question, but I used to be in Epcot a lot, most often walking from the front gate to the UK, and also around all the way around the lagoon. Last summer I lost a lot of weight partly from doing all that walking. I am not in Orlando right now, but I've been trying to walk on a treadmill, but I have no idea how far I was walking when I was at the park. Does that make any sense?

    Thanks!

    I remember hearing it was like a mile or maybe 2 around World Showcase.

    It's 1.3 miles completely around World Showcase. I am not sure about the distance from the park entrance to the UK however.

    Looks like I usually get some good walking in on my Epcot visits then as I usually make it around World Showcase 2-3 times at least.

    Yeah, me too! I was at Epcot and walked around the lagoon (usually a couple times a day) like 4-5 times a week last year!

    Ooh, cool. Thanks. You already checked it out before I got a chance to. Now I know approx. how far I was walking.

    BPF, I can make it around about that fast, too. Like you said, when there's no one to get in my way! During busy times it takes FOREVER! Especially during the Food and Wine festival, when people are in line for all the booths, and blocking up the whole walkway!

    Your not the only one. I made it around there one time 4 times in 30 min, but to be fair somehow my family got seperated from me when I was looking at the glass stand in Germany. I was fairly pissed by the end of that search and had decied if I went around one more time I was leaving the park and going to the hotel. But as luck had it they decied to sit near the international gateway and I found them. Looking back I can laugh about it, but back then saying I was pissed would honestly be me being polite.

    Re: Anyone know how far it is...?

    Hehe, I forgot, once last summer, when it was about 1000 degrees and humid (like always), I went to the park to watch the British Invasion. I was there early, so I rode SE first. Big mistake. I wound up getting stuck in there for about 40 minutes! So when I got off, it was 2:57. The band plays at 3. I didn't want to miss a lot, because they only play about 15-20 minutes, then not again until 4:30. So I BOOKED it. I was walking pretty fast, dodging all the people, trying hard not to swear when people would step in front of me and then stop...and made it back there in 6 minutes. From SE. I think that's pretty good. Oh, and I forgot to mention that I was pushing my son in his stroller, too. But I made it. Plus, they always come out a few minutes late, so I got there about the same time they were coming out!

    This is so amazing. Even more so if you consider that Disneyland is only about a quarter of a mile long on each side!
