Epcot Bucket List for Beginners

Epcot is one of our favorite places! Whether we’re there trying the food at the International Food and Wine Festival, admiring the flowers at the Flower and Garden Show or watching the artists at the International Festival of the Arts there is always something to do! So much so, that even though we’ve been to Epcot oh so many times, we still have not seen it all. Things we absolutely love ( so far) are below and we can’t emphasize the fun that comes from taking a mini-break over at the Boardwalk accessible at the International Gateway between France and the U.K. Be sure to check it out!

Best Day to Visit Epcot?

Weekdays are usually safe. Since this is one of the food and drink meccas in Orlando Florida, you can bet that weekends and evenings get pretty packed, and if you’re there during a festival of any kind avoid the weekends completely.

Epcot Transportation

If Driving: Just park! While Epcot’s parking lot is no where as big as Magic Kingdom’s it’s still quite a hike to the main gates, so be ready to hike it, or grab a tram from your car.

From the Monorail:Epcot is available on the monorail that attaches to the TTC (which attaches to the rail serving the Polynesian, Grand Floridian, and Contemporary Resorts and also the Magic Kingdom).

From the Boat: Epcot can be reached by a small ferry if you’re staying at the Swan and Dolphin or any of the Boardwalk resorts.

By Bus: Every resort bus goes to Epcot, but you can also catch a bus from Disney Springs to any resort and then transfer to an Epcot bus, if you’re not staying on site.
