Top Things to do in EPCOT without a FastPass+ Reservation

THIS POST MAY CONTAIN AFFILIATE LINKS. PLEASE READ OUR DISCLOSURE FOR MORE INFO.
EPCOT is my home park, and feel incredibly lucky to be able to share my passion about such an amazing spot on property.

All of the Fastpass+ reservations are done for the day and you’ve got some time to explore…OR you just want to do a non-FastPass+ day (which is actually incredibly fun!)

These are the Top 10 Things to do at EPCOT without a FastPass+ Reservation


 Behind the Seeds Tour

Squash plants, some with blossoms and fruit, growing hydroponically

“Explore the future of agriculture and get up-close and personal with the critters of The Land Pavilion on this walking tour.” – from DisneyWorld.com

Do you like Living With the Land? Then this is the next step in the sequence of fandom!

$$ Additional Cost


Manatees @ The Seas

Take some extra time in SeaBase at the Seas with Nemo & Friends to discover some of the most gentle animals in the waters of Florida!


Japan Gallery (Kawaii)

One of the top #HiddenGems in the World Showcase is the Japan Gallery, and as soon as you step foot in the exhibit…you’ll thank us:) History meets charm with this edu-tainment offering!

No Additional Cost


Meeting the Princesses

Okay, so although meeting characters isn’t for everyone (yup, I’m looking at you Patty;)) EPCOT’s World Showcase is packed full with character interactions. All you have to do is a little research on the Entertainment Schedule when you arrive at the park (or at the Resort)…and you should have a solid plan.

What does this look like? Here’s an example from a trip that we planned in 2015

Location Character
Morocco Aladdin & Jasmine 1145a 1245p 145p 245p 435p 535p
UK Alice 1130a 1200p 1p 250p 350p 520p
France Belle 11a 12p 1p 250p 350p 450p
UK Mary Poppins 11a 12p 1p 2p
China Mulan 11a 12p 1p 2p 350p 450p
France Aurora 1230p 130p 230p 420p 520p 620p
Germany Snow White 1230p 130p 230p 330p 520p 620p
UK Winnie the Pooh 1-345p 440-815p
Legacy Plaza West Pluto 9a-1240p 130-400p
Mexico Donald 12-240p 330-7p

American Rotunda (Voices of Liberty)Bird's-eye-view of a rotunda filled with an audience watching a singing group dressed in colonial American dresses and suits

Gather ‘round this outstanding a cappella group as they bring patriotic music to life beneath an acoustically perfect dome. – from DisneyWorld.com

This 15-minute acapella shows provide a transformation from current times into the past with a brilliant live-rendition of the time of the pavilion. These talented vocal artists share much more than patriotism and it’s completely worth the investment of time.

No Additional Cost


Club Cool

Beverly – The Jill Edition

I’m not going to spoil anything, except to say that if you like free soda…then stop into Club Cool in Future World! Oh…and try some Beverly;) Thank me later!

No Additional Cost


Jumping Fountains

It’s so much easier to just share the video…and remember…it’s so much cooler in person!


Fountain of Nations

Disney Parks After Dark: Fountain of Nations at Epcot

The Disney Parks Blog did a great explanation of the Fountain of Nations!

Have you ever noticed this lovely dancing fountain at Epcot located just behind Spaceship Earth? It’s the Fountain of Nations and in addition to being a lovely point of interest for guests, it has been an important part of park history since Epcot opened in 1982.

A special “International Ceremony of the Waters” took place right here on the park’s opening day, in which cultural representatives traveled to Epcot from around the world. Each one brought with them a container of water from their nation and poured it into the fountain. Contributions from a total of 29 nations were featured in the ceremony.

Today, the fountain’s 200 pneumatic shooters create dancing water shows that delight guests both day and night.

 


Drinking Around the World

This is an underground activity, but the entire “goal” is to get a drink at each pavilion around the World Showcase. Yes, it gets a lil’ expensive. Yes, there are t-shirts. 😉


Deserts Around the World

Don’t feel the need to get drunk around the World Showcase? I agree with you! What’s my favourite activity? Eating around the World – of course!

Eat a snack at each pavilion and not only will it be a lil’ cheaper than drinks, but you’ll get SO full that you’ll be so thankful that you’re doing the EPCOT death-march around the world anyway;)
