Answered Question - Disney Parks Moms Panel
- I'm travelling to Epcot with my 5 and 8 year old boys. Is there enough to do until the fireworks show, or should I start my day later in the morning instead of the opening time.

- A great general theme park touring tip is to split the day. By that I'm suggesting that you arrive at the park early in the morning and visit some of the attractions on your "must see" list. Then enjoy a leisurely lunch followed by a nice mid-afternoon break. You can use your break time to swim in the resort pool perhaps. Return to the park in the late afternoon for a few more rides and dinner before claiming a spot to watch Illuminations. All that being said, however, if you choose to stay at Epcot all day there is plenty to see and do there.
Future World features some great attractions. There, you'll enjoy Soarin', Test Track, and Mission: Space. Innoventions is also part of Epcot's Future World and offers a plethora of interesting and unique exhibits; don't overlook it! One of our favorite exhibits is the one where you build your own robot and enter it into a virtual race against robots that other teams have built. After the race you get to go into a room and build a robot from a vast array of plastic pieces. You even get to keep it and the best part is that you won't pay a dime!
Of course there is also the World Showcase where your boys can get a passport and have it stamped in each country by native cast members. They'll write messages in their native languages too!
As you can see, if you choose to make a day of it, there will be plenty there for you and your boys to explore. Be sure to wear some comfortable shoes though; Epcot is a huge park!
