Walt Disney World’s Epcot – The Myth: A Park For Adults Only?

Disney’s Epcot has a reputation for being a park that is “just for adults”.  We disagree with this statement.  We believe there are numerous rides, attractions and food experiences that are perfect for kids.  Take a look at these reasons below for why Epcot is a great place for kids.

1. Frozen Ever After

We will start right off with the most popular attraction at Epcot with Frozen Ever After.  This ride is specifically designed for those Frozen loving fans out there.  Kids will love seeing their favorite characters as they retell the story of Arendelle.  From Olaf and Sven to Anna and Elsa, kids are going to love this ride through their favorite store.

About Jennifer Retzlaff

My name is Jennifer Retzlaff and I became a lifelong Disney fan during my first trip to Walt Disney World in 6th grade. From that moment, Disney became a big part of my life. I live in Iowa with my husband and two kids who are growing up too quickly for my liking. I started introducing my love for Disney early to my family with a Disney honeymoon and then trips when our youngest of 18 months. Since then, our family has been to Walt Disney World over five times and we continue to plan and dream for the next trip. I love the magic that Disney brings to people through the theme parks, cruises, adventures and movies they create. As a teacher, I try to bring that magic into my classroom to help kids believe that “If You Can Dream It, You Can Do It.” I recently reached a dream of mine as I joined Magic Vacation Planner as a personal travel advisor. With this team, I can now help others plan magical vacations. As a passionate writer, I also have my own blog at magicalvacationsbyjen which is also where you can follow me on instagram for trip reviews along with tips and tricks for your next magical vacation.
