Review of "EPCOT"
EPCOT (EXPERIMENTAL PROTOTYPE COMMUNITY OF TOMMORROW) is split into two sections. Much larger than those of the Magic kingdom they do offer a large variety of attractions.The first half is 'Future world' were there are many shows and rides which are themed on Space, The future, Car testing, Development, Diaster safety, Innovation and so on... It offers exhibits, to show off many of these. Rides like Soarin' (a handglider simulation) is an epic expirience combined with high technology were you can fly over some of the most dramatic landscapes in the USA. Test Track puts you through a test course with you acting as the dummys, handeling and speed tests provide some high intense action. Mission Space allows you to perform a landing on Mars, allowing your party to be differant parts of a space crew.
Honey i shrunk the audience is a funny family show which combines comedy and special effects which are very impressive and un expected. Inside the Geosphere is a slow ride which allows you to create a smal film about your ideal future, staring you without you doing barely anything. The film is created throughout the ride, and its a fun and interesting attraction for those wanting a break from the rides. Innovations shows off some interesting technology in many aspects and turns them into activitys and interactive displays which are fun and educational for children, and maby even adults. Various other slow paced exhibits and attractions are located here, along with a large selection of cafes and shops.The other side of Epcot is future world. This has roughly 12 smaller sections which are themed around countries, each locations features shops, food, drink and entertainment from those countries. All the cast membes in these area's are from that home country, so it is a great way to expirience something new, or feel right at home.
The countries include Canada, UK, France, USA, Japan, Germany,China,Africa,Mexico and more. They are plotted around a giant lake which is home to a giant firework show at the end of the night. 'World showcase' is very popular with adults as it can be a great night out with its food, drink and entertainment.Epcot has the most options for dining because of world showcase, but in future world there are various resteraunts for a quick meal, a sandwich etc. There are alot of choices in Epcot and price varies around the park.
As for transport, Epcot is like all of the disney resort, connected to the bus network which means getting to disney resorts or other disney parks is never hard. Other than that the T&T centre can be accessed via monorail, and connections can be made to the Magic kingdom, and its nearby hotels. Also the Hollywood studios, the Boardwalk and resorts such as the Swan and dolphin and Yacht and beach club can be accessed by a boat system at the back enterance of the park.Epcot does have very friendly cast members like all parks and future world can be a great area for adults and Kids. Children however arent very well catered for in The world showcase, this should be taken into consideration whilst in this area.
