Firstly I’d like to say I’m sorry this post was later this week. Normally I post every Wednesday for WDW Prep but Wednesday was one of the busiest days in my life I didn’t even have chance to think about this post!
But today’s post is about the attractions at Epcot. If I’m honest, I feel like the attractions at Epcot are the attractions I’m least excited for. I feel like in other parks there’s more attractions which are up my street and that I know I’ll enjoy. But here’s a list of a few attractions I think you need to be aware of!
Mission: SPACE is a ride that I am quite weary about because apparently it isn’t a great one for travel sickness people and oh god am I one of those people. This ride is a simulation type of ride which makes you feel like you are going into space. There are 2 missions to choose from, either orange or green. Orange is a more intense feeling of G-forces and therefore may be harder for people who can’t cope with motion sickness. Whereas, if you wanted to test the water, you could do the green mission first and see how bad it makes you feel…this is what I’m going to do anyway. This ride is in groups of 4 where you’ll each be given a role to do within the space shuttle, sounds pretty cool!
Test Track is a ride I’m excited for at Epcot. before the ride, you create your own car digitally. So you get to think about how you’d like your dream car which I think is a really good idea instead of just getting into a car and not knowing anything about it. Once you’ve designed the car, you’ll get into a vehicle with 6 people and speed off across the track. The car can reach up to 65 miles per hour and when I’ve watched videos of this ride, it looks like it’s going at some serious speed! So be prepared for this. I think this ride will be so fun and one I’ll love because of the speed of it! *just a note from January 13, 2020 through February 26, 2020, Test Track will be closed for refurbishment.
Frozen Ever After is a ride which probably 99% of people who ride it will love! It’s a slow ride which goes through the journey of the film Frozen, so you’ll be hearing the songs and seeing the characters. Obviously Disney had to make this ride able to be rode by small children so there isn’t much to it as in the thrill side of things. But it seems so cute and a nice sit down going around the incredible design of Frozen!
Soarin’ Around the World is a hanging ride which makes you feel like you are flying. Some of the rides at Disney I know a fair bit about because I’ve watched people ride them in YouTube videos. However, with Soarin’ I’ve tried to avoid seeing much about it because I want it to be a surprise for when I ride it. Apparently it feels like you are really flying and it’s such a cool concept of an idea for a ride. It seems like you go over amazing scenes incredible the Eiffel Tower and the Great Wall of China! Try not to see spoilers of this so your first experience of it feels as good as it can be!
Living with the Land is a much more chilled, relaxing ride. This ride takes you through greenhouses to discover the history of farming. I understand this may not sound like everyone’s cup of tea but I thought to include it because there will be some people interested! It does actually seem like a interesting ride because you get to know how ‘Walt Disney World horticulturalists are using innovative growing techniques and cross-breeding high-yield crops to help feed a growing planet.’ So even though it’s about farming, Disney are still relating it to themselves. This is a nice ride to do to take some time out and just look and listen instead of speeding through thrilling rides!
The Seas with Nemo & Friends is another ride that the kids and adults will love. Everyone loves the film Finding Nemo, so now you can ride through a slow moving ride based on Nemo. This ride seems like it’s the journey of actually finding Nemo. You get to go through the coral reefs and see the characters in the film to eventually find Nemo! Plus, at the end of the ride, you can walk through the Aquarium filled with fish (obviously). One that everyone will love!
Epcot have a mixture of different rides and different styles of rides. There’s rides for all types of people and ages so I’m sure whoever you go with will have a great experience at Epcot. What ride do you like most or are you most excited to go on?
