Looking at the Bright Side

pic-1-2Too often on this blog, I write about things that I am unhappy with around Epcot. The squeaky wheel gets the oil, right? Epcot has been on cruise control for a while now, beside the Test Track refurb, and I certainly would like to see some changes, especially to Future World. With that being said, I decided it was time for me to write about the things that I am grateful for in Epcot, so here it goes:

1. Imagination Pavilion Closing! Come on, the thing has been on life support for a while now. Thank you for finally putting it out of its misery.

2. The Land Pavilion- As many of you know, this is my favorite pavilion. It has so much to offer it’s guests. The great food options here make it a stop on every one of my trips. The attractions have stood the test of time and continue to draw record breaking crowds.

3. The Seas with Nemo and Friends- Who doesn’t love the seagulls out front??? The best part about this pavilion is that you will see something different every time you step foot inside: new fish, manatees, dolphins, etc.

4. Spaceship Earth- This ride still fascinates me, plus I love the smell of Rome burning.

5. Universe of Energy- Come on, the video is still a little funny, and it is a great place to relax and nap if need be on a hot summer day.

6. The dining options- Abundance is the name of the game here. You can find something for every palette and craving in Epcot. And there is Karamel Kuche. Bam!

7. International Gateway- There is almost no easier way to get into the Florida parks that this entrance, plus it leads you to Beaches and Cream when the night is over.

8. Illuminations- Do I even need to add a comment?

9. Food and Wine Festival- Amazing cuisine, fun atmosphere, and new experiences. The Food and Wine Festival is always a hit.

10. The Marathon Ends Here- Yeah, this is the best one of all. After 24 long miles, nothing is better than approaching Epcot knowing that you are almost done!

Hope you have enjoyed my list. Leave a comment with your favorite things about our favorite park!

    The Land is my favorite pavilion as well.

    Energy shouldn’t be just a spot for a nap though. It should be an engaging show. Even though I absolutely adore Ellen, I really miss the old Energy show. I know some people found it boring but whatever, EPCOT shouldn’t go out of its way to appeal to the lowest common denominator.

    Epcot is one of my favorite places, and I will forever associate the China pavilion with the cramp that set in my right quad at about mile 25 during the marathon. What an experience. Chasing down Spaceship Earth to finish a marathon was pretty cool.

    This is our favorite park and we usually head here first on every trip! Illuminations is by far my favorite fireworks show!
