My kids are 6 and 3 and they love Epcot. The like Test Track, Soarin, Turtle Talk...pretty much everything I do except they didn't mind Ellen, which I am not a fan of.
LOL! My DH and I were laughing this past summer. We couldn't have been more pleased that our boys 8, 6 and 2 were perfectly content spending all of their time in Innovations, which was air conditioned and not very crowded. They could care less about Soarin, which was out of fast passes and an hour wait.Well....I don't know whether my advice will help, as my children are nerds like their mother, so we took them to Epct. The first time we went with children (2006), my daughter was 6.5 and my son was about to turn 5. They loved Epcot. The climbed on the fire truck (like they can't do that at home - I'm a volunteer firefighter), they made paper, they loved Living with the Seas and The Land. World Showcase allowed them to color masks and talk to people of different cultures....they ate it up! It's still their favorite park I'm happy to say (and mine, too, of course!).
My personal opinion, do NOT skip Epcot with your little ones. They are the exact same ages when we took our three. Now, it is one of my children's favorite parks. Like other posts have mentioned, there ARE things for little ones to do at Epcot. Most things have been mentioned. So, I won't relist everything. You won't be disappointed! I think WDW needs to promote Epcot better at being a "family park" and emphasize what it has to offer.Taking my kids ages 6, 4, and 2 in Nov. We are thinking of skipping EPCOT since there doesn't seem to be a ton geared towards them.
What do you think? Is there a full days worth of things for kids this age there? If so what??
