    OK this the 2nd little exercise I want MANY Disdads to participate in.
    (If you answered on our other forum...no need to answer here)


    What we are looking for from each of you give several (at least 10, no more than 20) "Attractions" regarding EPCOT. By "Attractions" I mean, Rides, Shows, Resturants, Experience, etc...that when someone ask you... "Hey, (name)...what is it that you like so much about EPCOT?"

    I'm not looking for you to rank these...just what you think of when you think EPCOT. This is "My EPCOT."

    I encourage you to make your list without influence from others posts...make your list first then read the others and edit your post later if needed...but I think the first gut impression will probably be best. Cause this is Your EPCOT...not Randall's.

    My Epcot (no specific order)
    Epcot is probably my least favorite park. When I think Epcot, I think more for Adults than kids (World Showcase), but know that is not exactly the case. Maybe I dislike Epcot because every time I go there, it is way too HOT outside for me.
    1. Test Track (the need a NOS button in the car :-)
    2. Soarin
    3. Maelstrom - SKOL Vikings!
    4. Beer in the UK (hard to find good beer at WDW)
    5. Akershus Princess Dinner w/ Kidlets
    6. Illuminations - can't go wrong w/ the Fireworks
    7. Kim Possible - kids loved the adventure.
    8. Mission: SPACE (boy I'm glad we didn't go over that cliff)
    9. Coral Reef for lunch to cool off on the hot day.
    10. Margaritas in Mexico

    In no order than how they occurred to me:

    1) Illuminations
    2) Mission: Space (orange version)
    3) Rose & Crown
    4) Boulangerie Patisserie
    5) Maelstrom ride
    6) park entrance area music (and music loop by Innoventions)
    7) Beverly
    8) Beirgarten
    9) Princess meal at Akershus
    10) Tangerine Cafe
    11) Test Track
    12) Soarin'
    13) Living with the Land (DW is a food scientist - this ride is part of the reason why)
    14) Le Cellier (esp the pretzel bread and beer cheese soup)
    15) Off Kilter
    16) World Showcase Players

    Okay, there would be more - right now, the list is dominated early on by food & drink, but that's because I am hungry. Honest. And need a couple of beers.

    In order it goes like this...

    Soarin
    Mission Space
    Test Track
    Rose & Crown
    Illuminations (more for the music then the fireworks believe it or not)
    Nearly all of the WS live performers
    Roaming around the World Showcase in general
    Club Cool (because it’s a tradition)
    Living with the Land
    Holiday Story Tellers (in season obviously)
    Boulangerie Patisserie
    Tangerine Café (and the architecture in the Morocco Pavilion)
    Spaceship Earth (but late in the day, and I liked it better before the update)
    All of the “atmospheric music loops” through out the park
    Nemo / Aquarium


    I’ve not yet been able to get to “Le Cellier”, but would like to try that one
