EPCOT’s past push for education at, perhaps, a small cost of entertainment is being put right by Disney with a huge injection of characters and well-known brands (Frozen, anyone?) EPCOT purists bemoan the dilution of what the park once stood for. But people have spoken, they are returning in droves to be entertained and educated.
Currently, only this overview page is active. Each of the sections below will eventually hold more information on the park’s attractions.
Until the under-construction ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy’ family roller coaster opens in 2021, this is currently a rollercoaster free park. Disney Parks are promising that as well as being one of the longest enclosed roller coasters in the world it will also be one of a kind.
The focus of the park historically has been educational but in recent years Disney has added a couple of thrill attractions to try and get more people through the turnstiles. One attraction is the fastest in Disney World while the other has necessitated sick bags for some.
While there are three rides that use water as a means of transport they don’t explicitly get riders wet so they can’t be classed as water rides. There are small drops but nothing that will worry anyone even the smallest of riders.
Dark & Immersive Rides
Included in this are the three water-based rides. One is used as a means of transport into the Seas Pavilion but you can also walk. The stand out attraction by popularity is Turtle Talk With Crush that keeps adults as entertained as the kids.
By definition some of these also come under Dark Rides as well. ‘Frozen Ever After’ is one of the most popular rides in the park despite the contentious issue of it not being based in Norway where the ride has taken the place of Maelstrom.
Aside from the nightly ‘Illuminations’ Fireworks (until it closes in September), these are predominantly dated CircleVision 360 shows but within this you can also find EPCOT’s other runaway hit attraction, ‘Sourin Over The World’.
