Epcot for Kids Part One! World Showcase Fun!

I am asked often OLP Travel Disneyif there is anything for kids to do in Epcot.  So many people look at this Walt Disney World theme park as being only adult friendly, but there is so much at Epcot for kids to do.  Walt Disney World is ageless, and every theme park has something that will appeal to every age.  Epcot is no exception.  In fact, I am always ready to answer the questions asked about whether an Epcot for kids day is possible.  Epcot is all about being ‘kid friendly’, because in my opinion this theme park is the most well rounded theme park experience a kid can have!

Epcot, I will admit, Disney OLP Travelon the surface looks to be geared toward adults.  Really, what Epcot is geared toward is a family vacation experience; Epcot for kids and families!  Disney provides unique activities; some for just the kids and some for families together.  The Kim Possible World Showcase Adventure is a family game available as you enjoy The World Showcase in Epcot.  Become a family of secret agents, teaming up with Kim Possible to help save the world from some of the silliest villains ever!

TDisney OLP Travelhe Epcot for kids fun doesn’t end there in The World Showcase, where each country  has what is called a Kidcot Fun Stop.   Be sure to let the little ones visit there, because a fun experience awaits them with colorful craft stations for preschoolers.  Your kids will travel the world at these stations, meeting cast members from different countries, and learning some of the fun crafts from those countries.   Here is where you will find the Kidcot Fun Stops in each country.

Epcot for Kids means you will be looking for Disney characters.  When you arrive at the theme park, stop at Guest Services and they can tell you when and where specific characters will be appearing that day.  For instance, you will find some Mary-Poppins-in-United-Kingdom-at-Epcot-251x300.jpg" alt="Disney OLP Travel" width="201" height="240" />of your kids favorite characters along The World Showcase in Epcot.  Look for Belle in France, with Beast at her side; they are an adorable couple.  Of course, Morocco is where Aladdin and Jasmine will be waiting to say hello to your little ones.  They are usually right along the lagoon, and your pictures there will be so lovely.  In Germany you might be lucky enough to see Dopey and Snow White.  My favorite character of all can be found in The United Kingdom Pavilion; Mary Poppins!

OLP Travel Gran Fiesta Tour Three CaballerosOh, and one of the most fun character meet and greets I have experienced was in Mexico with Donald Duck!  He is ready to Fiesta in the Mexico Pavilion where Gran Fiesta Starring The Three Cabellors  attraction is located.  See the character, and head into Mexico because the kids will love the boat ride this attraction offers.

A coupleDisney OLP Travel of small Epcot for kids fun ideas; don’t miss the miniature village with the train running through it in Germany.  Kids will be amazed by this; it is an entire village that is miniature size.  Japan is another fun place to walk through; take your time and look at the beautiful koi pond there.  The fish are big and beautiful.  Don’t miss Norway!  You can experience Maelstrom there; a fun boat ride along the North Sea, where you will meet some trolls!!  Disney OLP TravelAlso in Norway is a playground that looks like an old ship.  This is fun to play in.  Be sure to take your time walking through all of the United Kingdom Pavilion.  Your kids will love the fun that awaits them there.  Cast members are always out and about and ready to play games, such as old fashioned hop scotch.

So, The World Showcase sure does have lots for kids to do, don’t you agree?  We’ve not even stepped foot into Future World yet!  Find the fun in Epcot for Kids Part Two!  I promise, when I am done, you will have a new appreciation for how much there truly is for kids to do at Epcot!  I’d say we are well on our way!

About Ahnalira

When Ahnalira discovered Disney in 1985, she knew she had come ‘home’ to a place where wishes do come true and fairy godmothers are real. Her love of the concepts Disney promotes inspired the website, Our Laughing Place in 1998, as home for Disneykin as well as a place to discover the Magic and Wonder of planning a Disney adventure. As with all things, Ahnalira (or twirling fairy godmother, Ahnalira to all who know her well:) strives to provide the best in all she does…. She knew that to have an excellent Disney travel planning web site, there need to be an excellent travel service as well so she started Our Laughing Place Travel with all of the benefits of a full service, licensed, and insured agency AS WELL AS the added delight of pixie dust sprinkled over all your plans. When you send an online query to the OLP Travel “pixies”, Ahnalira promises the personalized attention that makes a vacation “a dream come true”. OLP Travel is so true to the quality of service that makes an agency successful that Disney approved Our Laughing Place Travel as an authorized Disney travel planning agency! As Ahnalira likes to says, “See how that is?”

    I ADORE the train in Germany! I guess that makes me a kid 😛

    I remember the first time I saw the train, Ahnalira. I was so enchanted by it, and also by watching Mari react to it; she was 10 years old. It is one of our traditions to stop there every time and look and remember, and even notice things about it that over all these years we’ve not noticed.

    Epcot really is for kids…. of all ages!

    My kids have always enjoyed Epcot. As a homeschooler, I always made it fun, but without them realizing it… educational. :) Even as teenagers, they still like Epcot!

    Epcot has always been a favorite place for our family. My kids always loved the live entertainers performing in each of the countries. What better way to expose ones children to different cultures and traditions? And SO much fun too!

    The train in Germany has been a favorite with my boys for as long as I’ve been taking them. It’s just so neat to watch. And both boys have always LOVED getting candy from ‘Japan’, too! Me, I just adore ALL of EPCOT. :0)
