It has been half a year since our visit but I am going to talk about Walt Disney World Epcot Center despite the unfortunate controversy its sister park is facing stirred by the alligator attack.
Epcot is not my favorite among Disney’s family of parks, but the moment I laid eyes on Spaceship Earth is the moment that will leave a mark in my memory forever. As a first-timer to the park, realizing that there is actually a ride inside this 18-story geodesic sphere blew my 30-year old mind. This is perhaps the busiest among all the other rides at Epcot. With some luck and express pass (wink), hubby and I found ourselves enjoying the 15-minute slow time travel ride in the dark aboard the Omnimover system showing the advancements mankind has achieved in the field of communications.
Epcot being an amusement of innovations, a visit to the Land is a must to every visitor. We tried the Living with the Land on a boat tour of a greenhouse showing the future of agriculture. I personally think that everyone, especially all children should be given access to a facility of this kind especially that climate change is on the rise.
If we have not experienced living in Okinawa, Japan and have not seen the Churaumi aquarium ourselves, I would have claimed Epcot’s aquarium to be the best and the biggest. However, spotting the hidden Mickey Mouse was a cute idea and a good consolation, plus the interior looks like a TARDIS.
We skipped the Journey Into Imagination but we took a quick snap.
And an instant world travel around World Showcase covering United Kingdom, France, Morocco, Japan, Italy, Germany, China, Norway, Mexico and USA of course in just a couple of hours. :)
Do you know that there is a show about energy at Epcot Center named after Ellen Degeneres that she herself hosts?
The best time to visit any Florida Disney park, most people would say, is early morning, to avoid dying in a sizzling Florida weather. I agree. But make the most of the visit until it gets dark to see the park spring to life in colorful Disney lights. Every bit of attraction looks different at night in a surrealistically and magical way.
Of course, we expect nothing less from Disney.
