Q&A: What is there to entertain a 9 and 10 year old boy in Epcot’s World Showcase?
Question by arrowheadadventure: What is there to entertain a 9 and 10 year old boy in Epcot’s World Showcase?
I’ll be taking my two sons and my pregnant wife (second trimester) the first week of August (please, no comments about how hot and crowded it will be as I have already been told). Other than “The Maelstrom” and “The Gran Fiesta Tour”, it appears that the only other attractions in World Showcase are movies about each country represented. Are any of these movies worth seeing (to a young boy, that is)? What would you recommend?

I’ll go ahead and be honest with you and say that World Showcase probably won’t be the highlight of your kid’s trip. It can be fun though. There are several restaurants in each country including character meals that you might want to look into along with street performers that you might run into. There’s also little stations around the lagoon, I believe they’re called Kidcot Stops or something along those lines where a cast member literally from the country you are visiting can write something in their native language in your child’s Kidcot book and there are little games for them to play etc. I also suggest taking the boys [and the wife] to the huge shop in Japan where there is a big candy store with lots of bizarre flavors and a lady who can show you how to make it, action figures and comic books, pearls and jewelry, and pretty much anything else you can think of. I think they would enjoy the boat ride in Mexico with Donald and Maelstorm but the movies in China, USA, France, and Canada might get tiresome for them. I myself don’t enjoy them that much so you might want to just see one or two and not spend much time there. I think you’ll have more fun spending your time in Future World. Make sure to take your kids to see Turtle Talk and the sea cabs at The Seas with Nemo and Friends, on Soarin’ in the Land next door, and to see the 3D show, Honey I Shrunk the Audience. If they are adventuresome do test track but Mission: Space might be too much and Ellen’s energy ride [I forget the name] is very long and boring. Most pavilions along with Innoventions have interactive games and exhibits that they might want to play while you ride or just to take a break. Honestly Epcot just isn’t the most kid friendly park at the World so I think you should spend a day there, see the big things, and take the family over to any of the other parks. Hope that helps, and have a great trip!
