Back in 2011, we visited Epcot in the late evening and only had time to eat (imaginatively in the UK section) before the park closed. This time I was determined to see all of Epcot, to eat sushi and bratwurst, and to make a day of it. And we certainly did that!
We could see the big globe thing (apparently called Spaceship Earth) on the horizon from our hotel room, which was nice as it made me feel more connected to Disney.
I may have bought some macarons at the French section... and nearly a Dior perfume, the bottles of which were being engraved with the purchaser's name. I wish I'd bought it now!
The fireworks display, IllumiNations, is spectacular and we secured a really great spot right at the barrier to the lake. Although Epcot won't last a whole day, it's definitely worth getting there a little later in the afternoon so you can stick around for the fireworks.
After my lukewarm first impressions of Epcot, I was pleasantly surprised to enjoy it much more than I expected. And, yes, I did get my sushi and bratwurst!
