Epcot Center Information

Epcot Center Information
One of four theme parks in Florida's Walt Disney World Resort, Epcot is the adult cousin of its neighboring attractions. Here, you'll find entertaining yet educational rides, inspirational films, fine dining, unique performances, and international arts and crafts.


Opened in 1982, Epcot Center was the realization of one of Walt Disney's longtime dreams to create a World's Fair-like showcase of nations.


Epcot's 300 acres make it twice as big as the Magic Kingdom, so bring your walking shoes. The park is divided into two sections, Future World and the World Showcase.

Future World

Nearest the park entrance lies Future World, where rides and interactive exhibits focus on technology and science. These include a ride inside Epcot's iconic sphere, Spaceship Earth, and its fastest ride, Test Track.

World Showcase

Eleven pavilions encircle a lagoon in the World Showcase. Rides, 360-degree films, shops, restaurants and street performers represent sights and cultures from around the globe.


Visit during the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival, when vendors line the streets with samplings of international specialties.
