Frozen Ever After
A fan favorite, Frozen Ever After, located in the Norway Pavilion, is a ride through the Frozen story. With the incredible animatronics of all our favorite frozen friends, great songs, and a little thrill, this ride is a favorite of many.
Put your car to the test with this ride. Guests design their car and then put it through various tests, including a thrilling speed test that takes them outside at high speed. Kids love the thrill of this ride as they feel the wind in their faces as they rush to high rates.
Guests have mixed feelings about Mission Space. If you are prone to motion sickness, you will want to steer clear of this ride. Are you looking for an intense experience? This blast to Mars is for you. A simulator replicating being an astronaut, Mission Space is not for the weak.
The most iconic ride at EPCOT is Spaceship Earth. Guests enter Spaceship Earth and enjoy a ride through the story of how communication has changed over time. This isn’t a thrilling attraction; however, it is one that we feel is a must-do on each of our Disney trips.
Living with the Land
Another iconic attraction that is classic EPCOT is Living with the Land. This slow-moving boat ride takes Guests through the gardens at EPCOT that the horticulture team uses. Guests can learn about how these new growing systems are helping and how EPCOT continues to work on new methods.
Get ready to fly around the world to view iconic features. This ride takes Guests high up and has them soaring. Soaring around from the Taj Mahal to the Great Wall of China, Guests will have their breath taken away by the views on this ride.
