If you’ve heard that Epcot isn’t as fun as the other parks, I’m here to try to change your minds. Maybe I’m excited about it because it’s a travel themed theme park, which is clearly right up my alley, or maybe it’s because I don’t like when things aren’t given a fair shake, but either way, I’m sharing all of the fun things to see and do in each region of the park, along with my favorite foods to eat and drink at Epcot, as well as a few fun facts about various regions. I hope this encourages you to spend some quality time at Epcot on your next trip to Walt Disney World!
