I hope you slept well because today you are going to conquer Epcot, Disney’s second largest theme park. With only one day for this park, its easy to get stuck in the World Showcase or Future World either because of the lines, or you’re simply too tired to keep making the hike back and forth two or three times in a single day. Solution? Arrive at this park at opening and get through some of the more popular attractions like Mission Space, Living with the Land, Soarin’, Test Track, etc.
Breakfast: Your Disney resort will offer breakfast early, so grab your family something quick if you want. Be sure to purchase some extra food to take with you for the morning to hold you over.
Side Tip: This Park can be tricky, and a lot depends on your fastpasses here. Most of your fastpasses are most likely for rides in Future World. Remember you can always grab another fastpass through the My Disney Experience app once you’ve used up your first three; but also remember, there is not an endless supply of fastpasses and it’s not unlikely that by noon fastpasses will no longer be available for some of the more popular attractions. The sooner you can finish with the first three, the sooner you can move on to other rides. Be smart! If you are arriving at opening, consider letting your first attraction or two be one of the more popular attractions you don’t have fastpasses to. Mornings are no time to dillydally, ya’ll!
Lunch: For this particular trip, it may be easier to head over to the Land Pavilion for a delicious lunch at the Sunshine Seasons Food Court. It’s very comfortable and a great indoor stop that can be as quick or slow as you need it to be. Take a breath in the AC, readjust and plan your next few hours in World Showcase.
Dinner: There is no better Park in Disney World to find excellent food choices than Epcot’s World Showcase. Some top choices might be Japan’s Teppan Edo, Canada’s le Cellier Steakhouse or Italy’s Via Napoli Ristorante e Pizzeria. No matter what restaurant you set your heart on you’ll want to book reservation well ahead of time, and budget for this dinner. If you time it before Illuminations, you can once again enjoy a beloved Disney’s experience on a full stomach.
