Epcot Bucket List

Epcot Bucket List

Epcot is one of our favorite places! Whether we’re trying the food at the International Food and Wine Festival, admiring the flowers at the Flower and Garden Festival or watching the artists at the International Festival of the Arts there is always something to do! So much so, that even though we’ve been to Epcot oh so many times, we still have not seen it all. Things we absolutely love ( so far) are below and we can’t emphasize the fun that comes from taking a mini-break over at the Boardwalk accessible at the International Gateway between France and the U.K. Be sure to check it out!

Best Day to Visit Epcot?

Weekdays are usually safe. Since this is one of the food and drink meccas in Orlando, Florida, you can bet that weekends and evenings get pretty packed, and if you’re there during a festival of any kind avoid the weekends completely.

Epcot Transportation

If Driving: Just park! While Epcot’s parking lot is no where as big as Magic Kingdom’s it’s still quite a hike to the main gates, so be ready to hike it, or grab a tram from your car.

From the Monorail: Epcot is available on the monorail that attaches to the TTC (which attaches to the rail serving the Polynesian, Grand Floridian, and Contemporary Resorts and also the Magic Kingdom). But make sure you’re on the Epcot monorail and not the Magic Kingdom one.

From the Boat: Epcot can be reached by a small ferry if you’re staying at the Swan and Dolphin or any of the Boardwalk resorts. You can also grab the boat back to the Boardwalk area and the International Gateway if you take the ferry from Hollywood Studios.

By Bus: Every resort bus goes to Epcot, but you can also catch a bus from Disney Springs to any resort and then transfer to an Epcot bus, if you’re not staying on site.

  • This is a great post! I have been to Epcot once, but it was when I was 12, so I’m sure many things have changed since then! I’d love to go again and I hope I’ll be able to within the next few years, but until then Disneyland is a much easier and affordable trip for me since I live in California.

  • Thanks Sarena! We’re hoping it will help others get the most out of their Epcot day. Epcot can be crazy overwhelming because there is so so much to do. And yes, a lot has changed. In fact we’re slowly watching some new construction go up over there! A new country could be added to the world showcase any day now. Bets have been on Brazil:) popping up between Germany and Italy. Chances are if you wait a few years you’ll get there right when everything is new again! Yay!
