Top 7 Hidden Gems At Walt Disney World’s Epcot

7. Living with the Land & the Behind the Seeds Tour

Living with the Land, the boat ride in the Land Pavilion that is so often passed up in exchange for riding Soarin’ instead, is actually a very interesting experience that should be done at least occasionally. If you’re a regular to the park, the experience might not be enough to warrant regular visits, but it actually is quite interesting when you listen to the narrator explain the different agricultural prototypes throughout the ride. If you really enjoyed your trip on Living with the Land, check out the Behind the Seeds Tour—a backstage experience that allows guests the opportunity to walk through the greenhouses seen on the boat ride.


6. Live Performances

Epcot is home to a number of live performances in World Showcase as well as in Future World. Upon entering the park, be sure to grab a times guide so you do not miss performances that interest you. Some of my favorites are the Voices of Liberty, who perform daily inside the American Adventure, and JAMitors, who can be seen in Future World.

5. Agent P’s World Showcase Adventure

Through Agent P’s World Showcase Adventure, guests use their phones to go on secret missions throughout World Showcase to defeat the Evil Dr. Doofenshmirtz. Fans of the hit TV series Phineas and Ferb will love the interactive game, which can be played in a number of countries across World Showcase. This experience is also perfect for kids who might otherwise have little interest in visiting World Showcase, compared to the grown up members of their party.

4. The Seas with Nemo and Friends

The Seas with Nemo and Friends is not hidden at all, however the pavilion itself is home to a number of hidden gems, particularly in the exhibits and presentations put on by Cast Members there. Next time you visit the Seas, ask a Cast Member when different presentations will be happening, so you can learn more about the amazing animals there and how Disney works to help them and their environments. In addition, many guests tend to overlook the exhibits inside this pavilion, which are actually quite interesting as well. After getting off the ride, or paying a visit to Crush, be sure to explore the rest of the seas, and check out the different animals there in the exhibits.

3. International Gateway

International Gateway is the second entrance to Epcot, that is tucked away between the U.K., and France pavilions. This walkway leads to the Epcot resorts, including the Boardwalk Inn, which is one of my favorite ways to break up a visit to Epcot. If you’re looking for a midday break from the park, take a leisurely walk up International Gateway and visit the bakery or one of the restaurants at the Boardwalk. If you’re heading that way after the park is closed stop in to Jellyrolls, the dueling piano bar, or the Atlantic Dance Hall.

2. World Showcase Exhibits

The countries of World Showcase contain a number of exhibits about their specific histories. Some of my favorites can be found in China and the American Adventure. If you’re looking to take a break from eating, drinking, or shopping, make sure you head to the exhibits and take in everything they have to offer. Each exhibit offers something special that is not worth missing.

1. Character Meet and Greets

While characters in Epcot are not necessarily hidden at all, (in fact, they’re all pretty much out in the open!) the concept of meeting lots of characters in Epcot is fairly hidden. The Epcot Character Spot is home to classic favorites like Minnie and Mickey, and Chip and Dale and Pluto can be found in Future World as well. Head into World Showcase and you can meet a variety of characters including Belle, Alice in Wonderland, Snow White, Jasmine, Mary Poppins, and Aurora. World Showcase is one of my favorite places to meet characters, because the lines are generally shorter than in the Magic Kingdom, and there are so many characters to meet in World Showcase alone, that you can leisurely walk through each pavilion and stumble upon more characters.
