Reasons Adults Love Visiting EPCOT

Even though EPCOT is undergoing a lot of changes right now, there are a lot of reasons why adults find this Disney Park to be their favorite.  When taking an adults-only trip to Walt Disney World, we think that EPCOT should definitely be a Park that you visit.


One of the top reasons why adults enjoy visiting EPCOT is because of all the festivals that are offered throughout the year.  Each festival brings delicious food choices, great entertainment, and unique experiences.

The calendar year begins with the EPCOT International Festival of the Arts.  This festival focuses on the arts.  Guests are able to enjoy great culinary art, and amazing musical talents, and see many Disney artists as they work and display their pieces.

During the spring, EPCOT becomes stunning with the International Flower and Garden Festival.  This festival transforms EPCOT with gorgeous topiaries and flowers that make the Park stunning.

Adults will find outstanding pavilions throughout EPCOT’s World Showcase in some of the most beautiful and unique areas in all of Walt Disney World. These pavilions truly work to bring the culture and beauty of each country to life through the shops, architecture, food, and more.
