Hi all!! Welcome back to an all new post. We are continuing our “best tips” series with Epcot! Let’s just get right into it!

Don’t forget to check out our best tips for Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, and Hollywood Studios!

#1 Know the Festival Schedule

Epcot is known for it’s outstanding festivals! These International Festivals are themed to the Arts, the Holidays, Food & Wine, and Flower & Garden. They run all year, so the chances of you experiencing one is pretty high. For each festival, regardless of the theme, there are special outdoor kitchens, merchandise, and events. So before you go, be sure to check out the festival dates!

#2 Check Out the Menus Early

There are so many good places to eat in Epcot the one of our best tips is to check out your food options ahead of time! This is especially true if you are going to Epcot during one of their festivals. There is even more food options during those events!! Don’t forget to make those Advance Dining Reservations (ADRs) too!

 

#3 Take a Break at the Adjacent Resort Area

If you have a little one that needs a break from the parks or if you just want someplace quiet to escape to, head on over to the International Gateway. This entrance/exit to Epcot is located between the United Kingdom and France Pavilions. Through this Gateway is a path that leads around the Epcot resorts including Beach and Yacht Clubs, BoardWalk Inn, and the Swan and Dolphin. There are some great places here to eat, shop, or just take a stroll! We usually make our way over there each trip. Plus, you can also access a walking path to Hollywood Studios!
