The Best of Epcot and What's Coming Next!

EPCOT Center, or as it is called now, Epcot, is one of four Themeparks at Disney World, but you already knew that! Today, we're going to list our Top 3 favorite attractions at Epcot, and will conclude with some upcoming attractions that you can look forward to! Let's dive in!

1. IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth

Arguably one of the greatest recurring fireworks shows on Earth, IllumiNations is a remarkable show with a history lesson tied in! While it's not directly tied to any historical themes, the show slides through segments that look at the past, present, and future of humanity! Not only is it a wonderful fireworks show, there's music and other entertainment tied in, making it a really well-rounded attraction. Stake out your spot to sit during the show with at least 25 minutes to spare, and that should be plenty of time to make sure you're comfortable and ready for a mind-blowing show!
2. The American Adventure
Epcot isn't really known for the rides it has, although there are several, it's the shows at Epcot that really bring the Magic. The American Adventure is no exception! This Animatronic attraction features a "timeline" of key moments in American history, intertwined with movement and music! Although it's not going to be the most exciting attraction for the kiddos, it's definitely very educational and has a touch of Patriotism that warms your heart. If you're in for a great show, you'd better head over to the American Adventure and take it all in!

3. Turtle Talk with Crush
The first two attractions may not have been cookie-cut for kiddos, but this one definitely is! Featuring excellent audio and visual technology, this interactive showcase allows kids to have an exchange with the World's coolest sea turtle! Due to the awesome tech, kids can actually talk to Crush and, wait for it...he talks back! So neat! While it's designed for kids, Disney doesn't forget about their adult fan-base either. If you're interested in bringing your kids, you'll find that some of Crush's jokes and material will definitely go over a kid's head, and will make you giggle, too!

Coming Soon...
We've mentioned both of these upcoming attractions before, but a little reminder never hurt anyone! Also, who doesn't want a little more Magic in their life? Lol!

Ratatouille at Epcot
Modeled after Ratatouille: The Adventure at Walt Disney Studios Park in Paris, France, this upcoming epic Epcot attraction is sure to have you feeling the Magic! Set to be included in a remodeled and expanded France Pavilion, the experiences is reportedly set to be a "walkthrough" of a kitchen, with guests being "shrunk" to Remy's size! "Walkthrough" is definitely not going to be the case with this one, as you'll be on deck to scurry to safety like our favorite rat had to in his movie! According to the folks in charge at Disney, this will be an attraction available to visitors starting in 2021, just in time for the 50th Anniversary of WDW!

Guardians of the Galaxy - Mission: BREAKOUT!
After the attraction of the same name took off like a, for lack of a better word, rocketship at Disney California Adventure Park, Disney Executives decided it would be the perfect attraction to replace Universe of Energy attraction that was closed last year. The ride is a free-fall experience, dedicated to assisting our Guardians out of the Collector's Fortress alongside our favorite galactic racoon, Rocket! It promises to be quite the entertainment feature, and will be ready for the 50th Anniversary of WDW in 2021!
