    Nice park, the new Star Wars attraction was a positive surprise. The show ‘Fantasmic’ was a bit disappointing.

    Beautiful park, but too few attractions. Because of this, the waiting time for the attractions is very long.

    This park was just brilliant! We loved the animal safari and the affection section, as well enjoying some rides too. Definitely a park to be done!

    We just loved our time at Epcot. So beautiful with so many different experiences of "the world". One of our favourite things in this park was the character meetings and just overall sight seeing here. By far a favourite attraction by all was the Beauty & the Beast sing along experience.

    Trusted Customer reviewed Epcot 27 May, 2024

  • 5 stars:

    Cannot recommend this park more. The castle to start with is absolutely beautiful. We did some great character meetings here too The rides we did were great fun too. We enjoyed some mickey mouse pretzels here also - tasted so good and we're bigger than we imagined. We also enjoyed the fireworks display here too which in itself was amazing!

    Trusted Customer reviewed Magic Kingdom Park 27 May, 2024

  • 4 stars:

    We had such a fun day here. We got a refill cup (definitely worth the money) as it was getting used every trip back to our seats at the beach. Lots of fun rides to use for all ages. Also recommended the wave pool and the lazy river - love that you can get in and out at so many different areas (which is how we got from ride to ride) and the fact that there is different floaty devices to use. 10/10 recommended! Especially on a really hot day.

    Trusted Customer reviewed Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park 27 May, 2024

  • 4 stars:

    We spent our first day here and majority of the time meeting characters rather than going on rides (which we did do a few). The Slinky ride was a favourite by all as well as the Lightning McQueen experience! Toy story land was amazing and probably our favourite section of the park! Great experience and great fun had by all!

    I love Epcot because there is always something to learn about conservation and our planet. There is a small downside to Epcot as they don’t cater as well for people wife dietary needs such as gluten free.
