13. Festival Fun
You know what would make a park more fun? A festival inside the park. Epcot hosts three amazing events that make visiting extra special. At the Food and Wine Festival in the fall, head over to the World Showcase and stop at the different kiosks that feature small plates and drinks from all over the world, including New Zealand, Scotland, Africa, and Brazil, plus seminars and the cast of The Chew. Or wait until spring time for the Flower and Garden Festival where colorful topiary pop up all over the park. See if you can make out some of our favorite Disney characters in those plants. Or come during December for the Candlelight Processional, where you can hear the retelling of the story of Christmas with a complete orchestra, choir, and a guest narrator. Neil Patrick Harris, and Whoopi Goldberg are only a couple on the list of narrators this year.
14. Kidcot and Phineas and Ferb
Young ones might not be as impressed with the idea of shopping or drinking alcohol in the World Showcase so why not take them to Kidcot. Each country has their own Kidcot stop where kids can learn more with Duffy- Mickey's very own teddy bear- about the culture from a cast member while coloring and drawing. If your children are a bit older and they are ready for some adventure, then help Agent P at Phineas and Ferb: Agent P's World Showcase Adventure. The case, if you choose to accept it, has you helping Agent P stop the evil Dr. Doofenshmirtz by traveling to different locations at each of the countries and finding the clues before it's too late. Take on one mission in one country or solve all eleven, it's up to you. Upon signing up, the super-sleuth receives a FONE or you can use your smartphone to receive texts to find the clues. Each mission takes about 30 to 45 minutes and is a lot of fun for kids or the kids at heart.
