8 Things No One Tells You About Visiting Epcot in Walt Disney World

8. You Will Walk A Lot

Since Epcot has two very distinct areas, it has the feel of two parks in one. The World Showcase alone is a 1.2 mile path around the World Showcase Lagoon. This doesn’t take into account the amount that you will walk within each country as you explore all they have to offer. Walking from Future World East to Future World West is also quite a trek if you’re heading from Test Track over to the Land Pavilion.

Combining the two halves of the park add up to a lot of walking to get where you’re going. That’s why most Disney guests will try to plan their day at Epcot so they’re always moving in one direction and not backtracking too much. Make sure to take breaks and drink lots of water on the hot and sunny Florida days.

About Ryan Miller

Ryan loves all things Disney: from the smallest details to the biggest surprises and all of the magic in between. He loves the fireworks of Wishes, the thrill of Tower of Terror and of course, the dining at Disney Restaurants. As of yet, however, he has been unable to replicate his favourite dishes and snacks at home. In between trips, you can usually find him reading about the history of the parks and attractions when he’s not at work for his local public library in Burlington Ontario. Ryan’s favourite Disney moment was proposing in front of Cinderella’s Castle to his (now) fiancée, Lauren.
