    I plan to spend some time at Epcot with my 6 and 7 year old boys. Is there enough to do until the fireworks show, or should I start my day later in the morning instead of right at opening?

    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 Sum of All Thrills, where guests build their own virtual roller coaster and then have the chance to "ride" it. 

    Of course there is also the World Showcase where your boys can get a Duffy cutout to decorate and have stamped in each country by native cast members.  Sometimes, they 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!
