The world showcase is half of EPCOT. It's a group of exhibits (pavillions that contain rides, shows, resturaunts, shops) from countries from around the world. Let's see if I can name them off the top of my head. We'll go counter-clockwise: Canada, United Kingdom, France, Morocco, Japan, Germany, Italy, China, Mexico.
There's no regular shuttle from Disney to Universal (why would you ship your customers off to a competetor?), but you can take a taxi.
The idea is to wander around Future World (that's the "front half" of EPCOT) from 9:00 to 11:00 am, then head back to the World Showcase around noon and find a resturant for lunch. Just about every country has two - one counter service and one full service. Then, if you're really tough and can handle 12 hours in the park, stay for dinner. And, of course, Illuminations.
Then again, if you're there multiple days, you can split that up.
That would be great if they are every night. Now, the only worry I have is that on disneys web site it states that some attractions are open seasonaly like the Carousel of Progress. What is seasonaly mean? It dosent say on the web site about what the dates it is open and closed.
This is my first and probaly only trip to disney for a long time, and I want to try and see/do everything. I cant understand why they charge you the same amount to enter the park and not have all the attractions open.
I love Epcot. So ok, maybe for reasons other than what Disney wanted....
A group of us play a game called "Drink Around the World." Seems easy, but when you do the sight-seeing thing in all the countries and drink in each country, the hours add up! *** Edited 1/6/2004 6:25:23 PM UTC by Ruedy2***
If anyone else is interested in disney info, I found a great site while surfing the web the other night. Not only does this site have pics of all the attractions and hotels, but it also has full menu,s from all the restraunts in the park and hotels.
It also has a lot of inside tips for all of the theme parks like what parks open early and so on.
