As enamored as I was with Epcot's World Showcase and the Food & Wine Festival, I had a blast exploring the rest of the park. Epcot offers some of the best rides in Disney, many of which were not around when I visited ten years ago. As we finished the our beer and wine the group headed to Future World to redeem our Fast Passes and check out some of the other attractions.
Must ride: Soarin' - an exhilarating rush on a free flying hang gliding adventure.My best advice would be to get a seat in the middle, if you can. Soarin' is definitely one incredible ride.
Must ride: Mission SPACETap into your inner astronaut as you blast into space without leaving Earth.
I was fascinated with the solar system entrance. Experiencing it is even more fascinating and exhilarating. In fact, this was the majority of the guys favorite ride at Epcot. Must ride: Spaceship Earth. I'd say its a "must ride" as long as the line is short. It's a classic, after all.
See yourself in the future as you ride, play, create, compete and explore inside the parks amazing icon.
Drunk smiles all around....I snapped a photo of our photos on the screen in front of us in our car. They were too funny not to!If there's time: The Seas with Nemo & Friends
Board a 'clamobile' and join your undersea pals on a quest to find Nemo. If there's time: Journey Into Imagination - a journey that will engage the imagination and senses. Must see (?): Captain EO - A 3D film that follows Captain EO (played by a young Michael Jackson) and his crew on a mission to rescue the planet through the gift of music, dance and light. I could have passed on this to be honest, but I was the minority (read: the only one). I understand going in light of MJ's death, but, I got no entertainment value out of this whacky movie that does not even incorporate real MJ songs.
Must Ride: Test Track - Aboard a GM vehicle you speed through a racetrack on the fastest attraction in Disney history!
Epcot is just as fascinating, if not more so than I remember it. After this vacation, my childhood favorite Disney Park remains at #1!!
