Top 8 Things for Kids at Walt Disney World’s Epcot

Walt Disney World’s second theme park has something for every member of the family to enjoy. Disney World rookies sometimes mistakenly think that EPCOT has very little for kids to enjoy, but nothing could be further from the truth. On the contrary, EPCOT is teeming with activities, attractions and experiences of all kinds for kids of all ages. Here are the top eight in no particular order.

8. The Seas with Nemo and Friends

Inside Future World at EPCOT, the kids will have a blast with Nemo and all his friends from Disney/PIXAR’s Finding Nemo. Board a “clam-mobile” at The Seas With Nemo and Friends attraction inside the pavilion of the same name. Enjoy the peaceful ride as the story of the lost clownfish is told. All the beloved characters from the story are there—Nemo, Marlin, Dory, Bruce the Shark, Crush the Sea Turtle and more.

7. SeaBase

After enjoying a ride in the clam-mobile, you and the kids will disembark at SeaBase where you can observe over 4,000 sea creatures that represent more than 60 different species of marine life. In the 5.7-million-gallon Caribbean Coral Reef Aquarium, you and your little ones will be amazed by all the different sea animals. Be there for the daily fish feedings at 10:00 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. During the feedings, Cast Members talk about the sea turtles, fish and rays in the tanks. The second floor of SeaBase is an observation deck where you’ll be almost completely surrounded by the marine life.

6. Bruce’s Shark World

This is another fun experience for kids inside the Seas With Nemo and Friends pavilion. At the Bruce’s Shark World exhibit, kids can pose for pictures inside Bruce’s big mouth with multiple rows of sharp teeth! They can also participate in interactive quizzes about marine life with Mr. Ray.

5. ImageWorks

The kids will love the Journey Into Imagination with Figment attraction. But the fun doesn’t stop there. After you disembark from the ride vehicle, you’ll walk through ImageWorks—the “What If?” Labs. Here, the kids can participate in several interactive activities. They can jump on the “Stepping Tones” and create musical sounds with every step of their feet. At another station, they can wave their arms like a conductor and create music. There are also computer kiosks at which the kids can make their very own digital versions of Figment and then email the pictures to friends and family.

4. Living with the Land

In the Land pavilion, the kids will have a blast at the Living with the Land attraction. On this slowly moving boat ride, Guests set out on a narrated journey to learn about green ways to grow plants and flowers. Throughout the ride, Guests also learn about how humans use the land around them to grow food. The ride takes Guests through some of the greenhouses at EPCOT where alternative growing and gardening techniques are showcased. The kids will enjoy this informative and interesting ride, and they will also enjoy seeing the different plants, fish and even baby gators.

3. KidCot Fun Stops

These activities are perfect for kids of all ages. At each of the 11 international pavilions around the World Showcase at EPCOT, there is a KidCot station where kids are provided with art supplies and they can draw and color different activity cards. While they are doing so, Cast Members from the respective countries can answer questions about the countries and even share stories about their lives in those countries. Each activity card is stamped by the Cast Members and the cards make great keepsake souvenirs. The activities at the KidCot stations are always free!

2. Chinese Acrobats

At the China pavilion on the World Showcase at EPCOT, kids will be amazed by the Jeweled Dragon Acrobats troupe. Several times throughout the day, the accomplished acrobats perform 20-minute shows in their vibrant costumes. Each performance is a fabulous showcasing of feats of strength, balance and grace. Check the EPCOT Times Guide to see performance times during your visit.

1. Frozen Ever After

On this dark ride aboard a Norwegian vessel inside the Norway pavilion on the World Showcase, the kids can see Anna, Elsa, Sven, Kristoff, Hans, Olaf and the Snowgies. This ride boasts some of the latest audio-animatronic technology developed by Disney Imagineering. The robots’ movements are incredibly fluid and lifelike because of this technology. During the ride, Guests enjoy a tour through Arendelle. There’s even a 28-foot drop toward the end of the ride. The Frozen Ever After attraction opened in 2016, but it is still incredibly popular, so be sure to make your FastPass+ selections in advance so you won’t have a long wait in the queue. This attraction will be one of your kids’ favorite things to do at EPCOT!
