Disney World - Epcot Center

The last of Disney World's four parks we visited in our June trip was Epcot Center.  Epcot Center is famous for the big ball at the park's entrance.

We had a lot of fun in Epcot.  We visited several characters, rode on several rides, had a great dinner, and walked through the back part of Epcot which has sections devoted to different countries.  We also had our longest wait in a line to see a character.  We waited in line for over an hour to see Joy and Sadness.  For some reason this line moved super slow.  It was worth it to see the way Sadness reacted to taking photographs.  When asked if she was ready, she shook her head back and forth.  LOL!  

For dinner we ate at the Akershus Royal Banquet Hall in the Norway area of Epcot Center.  This was a character dinner with several Disney princesses that my daughters loved.  It was also our most expensive meal of the trip, totaling $215 BEFORE tip.  That's for 4 us of.  Great food, and fortunately we paid for the dining plan before arriving, so we didn't actually pay $215.  I've said it before and I'll say it again, get the Disney dining plan.  It is well worth it!

One of the more interesting rides was Test Track.  You actually design how your race car handles the track before getting on the ride and having it tested.  My 6 year old rode with me and she was super excited to design her own car!  

We thought for awhile we'd do a second day at Epcot and we easily could have, but we only had one day left and decided there were still parts of Magic Kingdom we wanted to see, so we went there instead.  

In my opinion Epcot was a great park.  We had a ton of fun and you can't go wrong spending a full day or two here.
