When you travel to Walt Disney World do you travel to Epcot with a toddler? I’ve had many Disney first time guests ask me if Epcot is a waste of time with a toddler. My answer is always no! We took our youngest son to Epcot when he was 22 months old and again at 32 months old. He loved Epcot! We didn’t spend as much time strolling around the World Showcase as we usually do, but it gave us a great time for him to nap in the stroller.
Here are my top attractions and things to do with a toddler at Epcot, based on my son’s experiences:
Mickey Mouse shaped tomatoes? Pumpkins resting in hammocks in the air? No, it’s not the dream I had last night after spicy pizza and too much Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. These are just two of the interesting things that you can see on the Behind the Seeds Tour at Epcot. The first thing that most of us think of enjoying at Epcot is that coveted Fastpass for Soarin’, Mission Space or Test Track; however, Epcot has even more to offer, especially if you are a Disney nerd like me!
This tour, which is located in the Land pavilion, is something that I had wanted to try for many years and it was even better than I had hoped for. If you have ever ridden the Living with the Land attraction, then you have seen a small portion of one area that you will explore during this hour-long walking tour. It is a great experience with several unique highlights.
- Price:While wonderful and interesting, some of the tours at Disney World can be rather pricey; especially if you have a large family. This tour is much more reasonable at $18.00 per adult (ages 10 and up) and $14.00 per child (ages 3-9 years old) currently. 15% annual passholder, DVC, Disney Visa, and military discounts are offered.
With so many people running around the parks, it is important to know how to behave. Proper park etiquette can get you a long way! Today we are looking at the top 5 offenses that I’ve seen in the parks. These offenses may seem small or simple but for some reason, I continuously see guests making them. Read on an learn what NOT to do at Disney World!
1. Talk during the ENTIRE ride…
I’ve sat through many a ride where guests chatted away during the entire ride…seriously to the point that the intended narration and information was lost in a sea of conversation. LOUD, conversation! Here is what I propose, if you are having a conversation, do everyone else a favor and wait until you are finished talking before boarding the ride! Nothing ruins EPCOT’s Living With the Land more than only being able to hear some irrelevant conversation from the row behind you. I don’t know about you but I would much rather hear about the 9 pound lemon! Do everyone a favor and keep your conversation to a minimum!
