Answered Question - Disney Parks Moms Panel
- We have a 2 and 4 year old, and were wondering if Epcot was toddler friendly in the terms of exhibits and rides they could get on.

- Epcot is fine, but not great, for toddlers.
There are a few nice things to do with toddlers, primarily in the Living Seas pavilion. Turtle Talk with Crush is a very cute interactive movie/comedy show where characters on the screen actually chat with audience members. The Living Seas also has The Seas with Nemo and Friends, a lovely gentle ride which features both Nemo characters and live fish. The exhibition tanks at the Living Seas are also fascinating for little kids.
Nearby, in the Imagination Pavilion, your toddlers could enjoy the Journey into Imagination with Figment ride and the Honey I Shrunk the Audience 3-D film. In the Land Pavilion, there is the Living with the Land boat ride. This is an "educational" ride, but believe it or not my girls were fascinated by it, even as toddlers.
In the World Showcase area, your toddlers would enjoy the Gran Fiesta Tour Starring the Three Caballeros. This is a slow, gentle boat tour through Mexico. Also in the World Showcase are the Kidcot Fun Stops, basically small craft areas in each of the countries where kids can make a project that has to do with each country.
My feeling is that toddlers would be fine with half a day at Epcot.
