Disney Parks are the perfect destinations for families of all ages. One of our Get Away Today favorites is the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida. Not only do you get a touch of the original magic that inspired it all with Magic Kingdom, but your family can experience even more magic at Animal Kingdom, Disney’s Hollywood Studios and EPCOT.

Today we are taking a closer look at EPCOT where you'll find new experiences from around the world and beyond. With so much to see and do this guide will highlight just some of the fun you can discover during your Walt Disney World vacation.

EPCOT Highlights

EPCOT is full of culture, thrills and everything in between. Here is a quick look at some of the best of the best at EPCOT.

EPCOT’s Best Attractions

1. Frozen Ever After

One of the most immersive rides you’ll find at Walt Disney World, find a seat aboard your boat and let the lapping waters take you through a frozen willow forest.

Soon, you’ll be rubbing shoulders with some “boulders”—a.k.a. Kristoff’s family from Troll Valley—before bracing for the cold. High up in the icy blue world of the North Mountain, Elsa’s enchanting ice palace awaits. Behold the wonder… and keep an eye out for Anna, Olaf and a few more Frozen friends.

This enchanting “Summer Snow Day” celebration—complete with many of your favorite Frozen tunes—is sure to melt even the coldest hearts!

2. World Showcase

The main attraction at EPCOT has to be the World Showcase. You can explore the sights, sounds, tastes and even smells of 11 distinct cultures from around the globe.

Whether you want to try an authentic Italian pizza, see China's Terracotta Army, take a boat tour of Mexico, or shop in a Moroccan bazaar, you'll find it all throughout the pavilions at EPCOT. Each pavilion is staffed by representatives from its respective country, which gives EPCOT a truly authentic feel without needing your passport!
3. Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind

This reverse-launch coaster is the perfect opportunity for every thrill seeker to rock out on an epic intergalactic chase. You’ll also get to enjoy a variety of music every time you ride.

This “Awesome Mix” of six songs, includes the classic versions of:
  • “September”
  • “Disco Inferno”
  • “Conga”
  • “Everybody Wants to Rule the World”
  • “I Ran”
  • “One Way or Another”
4. Remy's Ratatouille Adventure

Everyone in the family will love being shrunk down to Chef Remy’s size for a 4D culinary adventure based on the Disney and Pixar film Ratatouille.

In this 4D ride experience, join Chef Remy on a daring culinary caper that will captivate all your senses as you zip, dash and scurry through the bustling kitchen, dining room and walls of Gusteau’s famous Paris restaurant. C’est magnifique!
5. Luminous The Symphony of Us

Each night a display of dazzling fireworks, fountains, lights and music comes together to form a great symphony – the symphony of us.

Much like a beautiful piece of music, “Luminous The Symphony of Us” is made up of a series of movements, each representing life experiences that we have in common, showing us that we’re more alike than we are different. Two original songs written just for the spectacular including “Heartbeat Symphony” and many of our Disney favorites play a huge role in this nighttime spectacular.

It’s an EPCOT event that brings everyone together each evening at World Showcase—you don’t want to miss it.
