Epcot is my second favorite park aside from the Magic Kingdom. At Epcot, you can explore, play, experience different cultures, and learn all at the same time. Epcot is really spread out, so have a good plan for the day so you are not crisscrossing the park all day. These are my top 10 must do Experiences at Epcot!
Top 10 Must Do Experiences at Epcot
Frozen Ever After Ride – If you did not pick this ride for your tier 1 Fastpass, then go to it first thing in the morning. The ride is wonderful. The queue is cute because you walk through Oaken’s trading post. The beautiful scenery in the ride makes it worthwhile, but the music is what makes it fun!
Soarin’ Around the World– It is amazing and my favorite attraction at Epcot. I sat in the front, which in my opinion is the best spot. All your senses get involved as you feel the wind, hear everything, smell the smells, and see amazing sights!
Test Track– Test track is super fun. While you are waiting to go on the ride you get to design your ride on the computer and see some really cool displays. As a pooh-sized person, I did feel a tiny bit cramped in the seat though. Be sure to get a Fastpass for this ride.
Mission Space– This ride is super fun. Actually, I rode it 3 times in one hour. My goal is to try riding it in the intense orange version, I am a little chicken though. Mission Space opened in 2003 and you have the chance to play a role in a mission to Mars, whether you are the navigator, pilot, commanders, or engineers.
Updated 7/26/2017: As it was announced at the D23 Expo, you will be able to enjoy new adventures at Mission: SPACE – an updated Orange Mission and a brand-new Green Mission. (Orange is the more intense training experience, while Green is less intense). The updated Orange Mission will make an even more visually stunning trip to Mars, while the all-new Green adventure will allow Guests to blast off for an orbital adventure around planet Earth.
If you are planning to ride the green version, no Fastpass is needed. If you are planning the orange version getting a Fastpass might be a good idea based on what you would like to do for the day.
Turtle Talk with Crush– I had so much fun during Turtle Talk with Crush. This show is great for adults and children alike since some adult humor gets thrown that little kids won’t always get. I like that they have added Finding Dory characters recently.
Character Meet & Greet with Mulan– Mulan is only available for meet and greets at Epcot. She is fun and her costume is very beautiful. Mulan is one of the many great character experiences at Epcot. Check out my post Top 6 Character Meet and Greets at Epcot for all the characters you should add to your Epcot to do list!
Journey Into the Imagination with Figment– This ride is not the most exciting, but it is cute and introduces you to Figment. After meeting Figment, you have no choice but to fall in love with him. Though there is a Fastpass option for Figment, I wouldn’t use it. Even during busy times, you can probably get on for under a 20-minute wait. After the ride, there are a few indoor activities that are really fun for the whole family.

Impression de France to see Serveur Amusant– This is an amazing outdoor show that uses comedy and amazing stunt work!
Spaceship Earth– This ride is more iconic than thrilling. It is fun to learn all the fascinating facts. One thing you will remember about this ride are the smells, they are part of the immersive experience of the ride.
Illuminations– Illuminations is Epcot’s Fireworks and Laser Show. Good seats are available anywhere around the World Showcase.
