After my recent trip to Walt Disney World I wanted to share with you all my recommendations of things to do at each of the parks for those of you that have never been and are wanting to go or even if you have been and need some recommendations for when you go back!
Epcot was one of my favorite Parks. I would rank it as my #2. This park doesn’t have as many rides as some of the other parks but the World Show Case is amazing and definitely something to check out.
Being that last year when I went the Frozen ride was not up and running, that was on our list to do for this year so we made sure to get to the park early and head straight there. This ride is a cute water ride and with it being new I think it’s a must. But only if you are planning on getting to the park early and heading over right away. I have heard the lines can get up to 2-hour waits. Or if you are lucky enough to get a fast pass then you don’t have to worry.
We unfortunately were not lucky enough. If you are staying at the resorts you get to choose your fast passes 60 days in advance and this year we stayed off site and so we were only able to pick them 30 days before.
My favorite ride at this park is Test Track. It’s a great concept and It’s super fun! You get to customize your own vehicle then test out the vehicle you created, ending with a speed test. This is a must do! This is another ride that I recommend you get a fast pass for
The other ride I really enjoyed was Soarin Over the World. It’s a nice relaxing ride that takes you on a journey to different parts of the world.
Something that I think is pretty cool and doesn’t take too much time is to walk through the butterfly exhibit. A ton of butterflies flying all over the place, how is that not cool? You can even come into contact with some friendly Butterflies that will land on your finger if you just hold it out.
Now to the World Show Case
We started in Mexico on our adventure and had Tacos De Barbacoa, Chips and Guacamole and a frozen Margarita at ‘La Catina de San Angel’. This place was great and was my favorite place to eat at all the showcase food options and that margarita, yum!
Inside the Mexican Pavilion is a little water ride, which is not listed as a ride on the map but more of a tour. I think a lot of people miss this for that reason but its something cool to try out and there was no wait when we went.
Two Words: Grapefruit Beer! If you are going to drink alcohol at all on this trip Germany is the place to do so. I kid you not, you will not want to miss out on this deliciousness.
The next worthwhile stop you should check out is in Japan. If you are a fan of shaved ice like I am then you will love the shaved ice from Kabuki. I ordered the Rainbow shaved ice with condensed milk and some sushi because it is japan and I love sushi!
Either option is great and yummy!
I have always wanted to Visit Paris and so of course I had to stop by Paris for some macaroons and a Mimosa. At Les Halles Boulangerie Patisserie you can get desserts, sandwiches, flat breads and alcohol! They have a wide variety so there’s something for everyone.
Now that’s enough for food although I could go on for days when it comes to food, especially at Epcot because there is a lot to choose from but these were my favorite.
If you are a fan of Fireworks which I’m sure you are then you will want to stick around for Illuminations. With the whole park surrounding the water I can’t see there really being a bad spot to watch but if you were looking for a great spot we watched in Mexico.
I loved all the little details that Disney put into this park with the rides and especially the world showcase. This was park was phenomenal and I wouldn’t expect any less from Disney.
