Some people feel that Epcot is not really a place for kids. I would have to disagree. My family has always loved Epcot, adults and kids alike. There are so many things for kids to enjoy in the World Showcase, it would be disappointing for a family to miss out.
As you reach the International Gateway stop by at the recruitment center for Agent P’s World Showcase Adventure. This is an interactive game where your family can become secret agents and help Agent P defeat Dr. Doofenshmirtz. Agent P is the alter ego secret-agent of Perry the Platypus. Perry is Phineas & Ferb’s pet. This quest takes you on several missions to find clues to help Agent P. For more information stop by the recruitment center and they will answer any questions you may have.
One thing that my kids loved to do in the World Showcase is the Kidcot fun stops. There are paper puppets available in each pavilion. When you visit the Kidcot area a cast member will stamp or write something from their country on your puppet. You can also draw or color your puppet. The supplies for this are located at each country’s Fun Stop. It is also a nice place for kids to rest if they get tired during the long walk discovering the countries.
There is live entertainment offered thru out the World Showcase. There are character meet and greets located in many areas around the World Showcase. Each country offers a sample of something native from their area. Mexico hosts a Mariachi band. In China you will be wowed by the skills of the Jeweled Dragon acrobats. Live music is heard all thru the World Showcase. There is a juggler and flag wavers to entertain while visiting Italy. You can see axes flying and log rolling in the Canadian pavilion. That is just to name a few.
My suggestion is get to Epcot early in the day to experience all the World Showcase has to offer. When you arrive be sure and pick up a times guide since the performances are scheduled all day at different times. Then you can be sure and not miss what interests you most. You will also find helpful information on the My Disney Experience app with times and locations.
Denise has loved Disney as far back as she can remember. She has two teenage girls who were raised with Disney. Their rooms were decorated, and their closets were filled with Disney articles. Denise’s house now has Disney on every wall. Her wardrobe is made up mostly of Disney clothes. She feels that being surrounded by Disney keeps the memories and magic alive! Her friends affectionately call her “the crazy Disney lady”. Denise was born and raised in Oregon. Currently she lives in both Oregon and Florida splitting her time between both parts of the country. She lives with her youngest daughter (15) and her roommate. Her daughter goes to high school In Oregon. Denise and her roommate sneak away to Florida several times a year, as often as possible. Her daughter tags along when she can, without missing too much school. Her oldest daughter (20) doesn’t make it to Florida much anymore, but hopes to again very soon. Denise’s first trip to Walt Disney World was for her birthday in 2009. She fell more in love with the magic of Disney that day! Ever since then, Denise and her kids have been annual passholders. Last spring she upgraded to a premier pass to include Disneyland. Over spring break her youngest daughter had the pleasure of her first visit to Disneyland. With Denise helping them plan, her brother and his family enjoyed their first family trip to Disneyland at that same time. Denise is looking forward to helping you with money saving tips as well as sharing the excitement and magic of Disney!
