Characters and Nighttime Entertainment
In addition to the attractions and shows listed below, Epcot also offers visitors lots of opportunities to see characters as well as a nighttime fireworks spectacular.
This park is divided into themed “worlds”:
Disney and Pixar Short Film Festival
Located inside the Magic Eye Theater, this 4D movie experience includes 3 animated shorts from both Disney and Pixar Studios.
Journey into Imagination with Figment
Located in the sensory labs of the Imagination Institute, this ride takes you through an exploration of your senses. The exit area is a fun play area for little ones.
Located inside the golf ball, this attraction is a gentle ride through time to see how far we’ve come. Using a picture that is taken at the beginning of the ride, on the decent your head is added to interactive illustrations about the future. The picture is also used in the exit area up on the large screens.
Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind
Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind is a roller coaster at Epcot.
The attraction is inspired by the Marvel film of the same name and is taking over the area where Ellen’s Energy Adventure used to be.
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).
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.

Journey of Water, Inspired by Moana
Journey of Water, Inspired by Moana is an outdoor trail that guests take in at their own pace as they explore and interact with playful water features themed after the popular animated movie. The experience includes lots of water features and fountains to help guests learn how the cycle of water works.
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.
The Seas with Nemo & Friends
The Seas with Nemo and Friends is an attraction that brings the animated characters from Finding Nemo and the real aquatic life inside the aquarium of The Living Seas together.
Soarin’ Around the World
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.
Turtle Talk with Crush
Turtle Talk uses the same technology that is used at Monsters, Inc. Laugh Floor in Magic Kingdom which includes an actor voicing the character while also controlling the live animation on the screen. This fun show includes many of your favorite characters from Finding Nemo and Finding Dory. The technology always amazes me.
The America Adventure
A dramatic re-telling of the American story, featuring 35 animatronics and a 72-foot screen.
Canada Far and Wide
New film called “Canada Far and Wide in Circle-Vision 360” that premiered in January 2020.
Beauty and the Beast Sing-Along

Frozen Ever After
A beautiful & gentle boat ride with all your favorite Frozen characters. While the World Showcase as a whole opens at 11, this attraction is available for guests to ride at park opening.
Gran Fiesta Tour Starring the Three Caballeros
A cute, gentle boat ride that is sort of like “it’s a small world”, but instead of being the world it is only focused on Mexico.
Reflections of China
Journey through ancient and modern China during a spectacular 12-minute Circle-Vision 360° film.
Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure
Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure is the new attraction in the France pavilion at Epcot.
Modeled after Ratatouille: The Adventure in Disneyland Paris, this trackless 4D family-friendly ride shrinks guests down to the size of a rat as they go on an exciting journey through Gusteau’s kitchen.
