    Angelica Asked

    Coming in Aug for 4 full days but only doing 3 parks. Trying to decide between Epcot and HS for girl 11 & 6.I'm leaning more towards the learning experience I hear Epcot has with the different countries. Can you tell me more about Passport at Epcot?

    Hi Angelica!

    Visiting World Showcase at Disney's Epcot is always one of the highlights of our vacations, it is a great way to give your children a small taste of many different cultures within a short time span. At any gift shop in World Showcase you can purchase a passport for around $10 that includes a passport and stamps for each country.  There are 11 pavilions representing Canada,United Kingdom, France, Morocco, Japan, United States, Italy, Germany, China, Norway,Mexico and cast members working in those pavilions are actually from those countries.  

    At any of these pavilions you can find what is known as Kidcot Stations, where you can receive a stamp plus cast members will usually write a message in their native language.  At these stations there is also an opportunity to color and decorate a paper Duffy on a stick, which is Mickey Mouse's bear given to him by Minnie to accompany him on his global travels.  If you choose not to purchase a passport, cast members will stamp Duffy at each location.The passports have become a valued souvenir in my house, my children love to show people all the places they have traveled. 

    Epcot has a lot of opportunities for a rich learning experience.  Many attractions in Future World will have hands on exhibits after exiting the attraction and most attractions are an educational experience themselves.  While I love to visit Hollywood Studios for its wonderful shows and attractions, Epcot is a wonderful learning environment for adults and children alike!

    I hope this helps and please visit us again if you have anymore questions!

    Enjoy your Disney Time!
