Happy Birthday Epcot! Just like the Magic Kingdom, Epcot opened on October 1st!  Of course, there was 11 years between the Magic Kingdom and Epcot, so last year was the 30th Birthday of Epcot, and that makes this year birthday number 31!  Epcot has so many incredible details that it’s really like going to two theme parks rolled into one!  For starters there is Epcot Future World, which features Spaceship Earth, among other great pavilions.  Then there is Epcot World Showcase, which features 11 pavilions dedicated to different countries around the world.  If you haven’t seen my reviews of them, head over to my “Epcot’s World Showcase” page to read about each of them!

For this special birthday post, I thought I would let my pictures do the talking, and share with you some of the incredible things that await you at Epcot!  Sit back, relax, and enjoy your photographic journey through Epcot — the second park at Walt Disney World!

  1. We love the World Showcase at Epcot, we have a lot of fun just exploring. There’s always something new to find that we didn’t see the last time.
