Guide to all Epcot rides and attractions

(Article last updated: July 27, 2017)

Epcot is my favorite park now and it was when I was a third grader on my first visit.

It's a huge park with lots to explore.

Here's a guide to all Epcot rides and attractions to help you decide what to do on your next trip...

In this article

A quick overview

Epcot is the park with the large "golf ball" as its icon and it's split into 2 sections: Future World and The World Showcase.

Although this park is my favorite, I don't recommend it for families focused on little ones, especially if their trip is 5 days or less.

Let's take a look at each of the 2 sections...

Epcot rides and attractions

Future World

Test Track

Guests on this ride first spend time in a pre-show room with computer screens where you build your own car. You then proceed to the ride area and board a car. Once boarded, you ride a convertible car through various car tests, ending in a high-speed lap outside. Many people are confused about how their designed car relates to the ride itself. If you look on the screens throughout the ride (after every car test), you should see the car you designed and how it performs compared to the cars designed by other people in your ride vehicle. The exit area of this ride allows you to do other things with the car you designed, including driving it on a virtual track. You can also pose with various real cars with virtual backgrounds to get your picture taken and emailed to you.

FP+ available? Yes
Height req.: 40
Suitable for: Anybody 40" or taller who can handle some jerky movements and high speed
Recommended? Yes
When to visit: 1st hr (or later w/FP+)
Tips: Single rider line is available here

Soarin'

Soarin' is one of the most popular rides in all of Disney World and a very unique experience. You sit in a ride vehicle that lifts you in front of a huge screen and then you glide through many popular landmarks from across the world, often smelling various things you see on screen.

FP+ available? Yes
Height req.: 40
Suitable for: Anybody 40" or taller
Recommended? Definitely
When to visit: 1st hr (or later w/FP+)
Tips: Ask to be seated in the front row to avoid seeing dangling feet in front of you during the ride

Mission: SPACE

Revamped in 2017, this attraction is a simulator that lets you feel like an astronaut and takes you from launching pad on 1 of 2 missions: the family-friendly Mission Space - Earth (with a 40 inch height requirement) and a Mission Space - Mars (with a 44 inch height requirement). Once on the selected mission, each rider is assigned 1 of 4 jobs to do (in reality, it just means you push a blinking button when it lights up in front of you).

FP+ available? Yes
Height req.: 40
Suitable for: Anybody 40" or taller who can handle simulators
Recommended? Yes
When to visit: 2nd hr (or later w/FP+)
Tips: To prevent motion sickness, just keep looking forward and don't look to the side to see your companion. The exit area is really fun and a great place for non-riding members of your group to wait while you ride.

Living with the Land

This gentle boat ride takes you on a tour of some of the greenhouses to see how things are grown at Disney World.

FP+ available? Yes

FP+ available? Yes
Height req.: None
Suitable for: Everybody
Recommended? Yes

Journey Into Imagination

Located in the Imagination pavilion, this ride takes you through an exploration of your senses. The exit area is a fun play area for little ones.

FP+ available? Yes

Tips: Visit any time, rarely much of a wait (if the wait is longer than 15 minutes and you've used all 3 of your FastPass+ reservations, you should try to get a FastPass+ in the My Disney Experience app)

The Seas Pavilion

The Seas pavilion includes a ride that gets you into the building called The Seas with Nemo and Friends which allows you to view the water with real fish in it as well as animated characters from Finding Nemo.

Dining at Epcot

I have a dining guide below to help you decide on food options at Epcot.

Epcot rides The pros and cons of all Epcot restaurants
Because of the World Showcase, Epcot has a huge number of restaurants compared to the other parks. Be sure to check out the list to help you decide where you'll eat during your trip.

WDW Prep Members

Level 2 WDW Prep Members have touring plan tools to put together their own plans. The attractions indicate height requirements, if it's a good use of FastPass+, illustrations of ride vehicles so you can see how many people will fit (especially handy if the kids outnumber the adults), and when to visit each attraction.

Epcot rides

And as you build your touring plans, they are grouped by hour (for the first 3 hours) and then your whole plan is plotted on a map at the bottom of the page so you can see how it all lays out.

Hi there, where can I find an updated touring map of Epcot which includes the new frozen ride and anything else that may have changed? Thanks in advance!

Ann

I love your site, but your “guide to all Epcot attractions” seems to be lacking. At least I hope so, as I have made plans to spend two days in the park this upcoming trip! We will be there during Spring Break 2016. For the past few years we have always felt like we had short changed WS. I attribute this to the fact that we start in FW and by the time we head to WS early afternoon I am wiped out. I have back issues.

This year our plan is to enter thru the International Gateway near France and spend a day at Epcot, beginning with WS.

I have FP spots for Illuminations, which I must admit I sometimes ignore while walking out of the park.

We will start the other full day at Epcot from the front of the park at FW.

In years past I have done Soarin, Spaceship Earth, Nemo, Character Spot, Living Seas, etc in the a.m. and let the hot Florida sun cool down before heading around the world.

That is actually my only concern with this new reverse plan.

I am going to give Epcot another shot and take my time at each country. It will be our first full day in the parks, so hopefully I can give it my full attention!

Emily

I disagree with the often posted opinion that Epcot is not good for young children-unless “young” means age two and younger. My children were 3 and 6 and Epcot was their favorite park. Both loved Test Track and Soarin and cite them as their favorite rides out of all the parks. We heard over and over that Epcot was not really suitable, so we did not allow enough time in the park and were therefore unable to do many things on our wish list…and we went at a low crowd time and were in the park before rope drop bc of Akershus princess breakfast. We did take a mid-day break which obviously cuts out time. Next trip, we will either allow ourselves two days or do a park hopper so we can have more time there.

Casey

I agree with you, Emily! We are very much looking forward to Epcot with our 5 year old. The character interaction there is amazing!

Rebecca Icenogle

What about Maelstrom? There used to be a ride in the Norway pavilion that was really cool. When I was little, the trolls were too scary but, when I revisited Epcot at an older age, I really liked it and could appreciate the Norse history more. Is that ride not there anymore?

Tarra

We are planning a trip the week after Thanksgiving, how much time should I plan to spend at each country? We want to have a casual pace and be able to see everything plus do the Kidcot activities.

Elise

The Gran Fiesta Tour in Mexico is one of my favorite rides! It’s precious and so colorful!! I’ve never waited in a line. I hope they keep it forever.

Erin

I highly recommend making an absolutely ridiculous face when your photo is taken for spaceship earth. My sister and I did back in 2009- unaware of the video. The result was a shot minute and a half of side splitting laughter as my character had a lazy eye and her’s looked like it had escaped from the zoo

Alisha

My husband and I are going to WDW for our second anniversary. No kids. How long does it take to do Epcot? I’m thinking just we will probably stick to your recommendations and skip the “filler” attractions. I want to be sure to see Illuminations, so do we need to get to Epcot as soon as it opens?

I realize everyone’s interests are different and this may be a difficult question to answer, but I really am just curious if Epcot is the kind of park where you need to get there super early and stay super late to see all the important stuff.

Maria B

Not sure if you already went (your post is a few months old), but maybe my response could help somebody else out if you made your trip already. My family has treated EPCOT as two different parks. We go very early (at rope drop) and see everything we can see in Future World through 1:00 – 1:30 pm. Sometimes we have a late lunch in the park. We then return to our hotel for a rest (maybe pool time, if we are up for it). Then, we’ll leave around 5:30 pm for dinner in the World Showcase, walk the countries, and stay for Illuminations.

This plan seems to work for us when we have only one day to spend in EPCOT. Otherwise, we’ll divide it over a few days. We usually get park hopper passes, so we’ll return more than once for dinner, etc.

cheryl thom

As we are planning our first trip, we have 6 days at the parks, and planned for two MK, one AK, one HS, and two EPCOT, we are getting worried now that EPCOT really isn’t so good for little children, we’ve got 3, 4, and 7 year old. Do we need two days to do it all? Or half a day for each area? Are our kids going to be bored out of their minds? Yikes, hope we didn’t plan too much EPCOT time.

Annamari Curtiss

Hi there! I love your touring plan for little ones at Epcot; however, we will probably park hop there in the afternoon. Any suggestions on how to make it work with the chance that most fast passes will be gone? My kids are dying to try Soarin’…thanks so much!

Misty Ehret

I agree with Jillian on the meet & greet…..each time we’ve done it, we’ve waited for 45+ mins. Also, Living with the Land is one of my favs. My daughter (will be 7 this month) when she was 5 LOVED this ride as well as my 5 yr old nephew. I think little kids really enjoy it and don’t view it as a “filler”.

Megan

What I like about the world showcase with 2 little girls is that is an easy way to meet Princesses. Last year we saw Belle, Jasmine and Aladdin, Mulan and Snow White. We checked the schedules and made sure to line up 15 minutes before they were to show up, got our autographs and pictures and were on our way to the next princess!

cheryl thom

Thanks for pointing this out – we didn’t realize we could see the princesses at EPCOT – I’ll definitely read the princess trip plan!

Jillian

Great as usual! I loved reading this. One thing I slightly disagree with is the short wait for the Visa Card meet & greet. We have done this 3 times in recent years and have always had to wait about 45 minutes. Its worth it however for the free 5×7. The last time we were there, there were a bunch of video games on the wall nearby and my husband would play while I waited in line :o)
