The 2017 Epcot International Food & Wine Festival takes place from August 31st until November 13, 2017. This year’s festival brings several new additions to the festivities, including new artists for the Eat To The Beat concert series and new marketplaces.
Fireworks make for some of the most spectacular photo opportunities at Disney, if you know how to best capture the experience.
Guests visiting Walt Disney World for Independence Day 2017 will be able to experience two special 4th of July fireworks shows.
Located inside the pyramid of the Mexico pavilion sits one of the most fun, yet often overlooked, attractions at Epcot. Gran Fiesta Tour Starring The Three Caballeros takes guests on a gentle boat ride giving them a glimpse into the Mexican culture.
Epcot’s Test Track has been delighting Future World guests since the late 1990’s and continues to do so with the 2012 overhaul of the attraction’s theme. Reaching speeds of up to 65 mph, Test Track is a must do for any thrill-seeking guest at Walt Disney World. Let’s take a look at what makes Test Track one of Epcot’s best attractions.
The plan for the day was to visit Animal Kingdom and then park hop to Disney’s Hollywood Studios to see the new Star Wars fireworks show; however, after five hours of visiting many of our favorite Animal Kingdom attractions, we decided it would be fun to visit Magic Kingdom for a while. So we headed to the bus stop, only to watch the Magic Kingdom bus pull away as we walked.
A single pair of shoes is capable of changing a girl’s life, or at least that’s what Cinderella would tell you. The same could also be said of a pair of shoes and your Disney vacation. With over 47 square miles to cover at Walt Disney World, you can bet there will be a lot of walking! Chose the wrong shoe and your feet will start to feel every single step after your first day in the parks. Choosing the right pair of shoes for your vacation is essential to ensuring you will have a magical time at Walt Disney World.
Everyone loves a parade, so it would be natural to assume parades at the four Walt Disney World parks have been abundant over the years. This is true for most of the Walt Disney World parks, but for Epcot – not so much. Since the park’s opening in 1982, there have only been a handful […]

Many of the pre-shows for Walt Disney World attractions feature great music. Some of them feature the music as more of background music than something to focus on; however, the pre-show at Honey, I Shrunk The Audience featured the song True Colors prominently in a slideshow designed to encourage imagination.
The song True Colors combined with beautiful photos and text highlighting various ways to use and develop your imagination was truly the most inspirational pre-show I’ve ever seen at a Disney park. That video has stuck with me over the years. Anytime I hear the song True Colors, I can’t help but think of Honey, I Shrunk The Audience.

Over the years, Epcot has hosted many wonderful attractions which sadly are not longer a part of the theme park.

Sponsored by Kraft Foods, the attraction used singing animatronic foods to educate guests about the importance […]
