Epcot Center is just one of the great Disney theme parks in Orlando , and like the other parks, it offers its own brand of fun and attractions. You'll basically take a tour around the world when you visit Epcot Center, as international culture is the focus, and this cultural theme extends to the 2016 Epcot shows. From a Mariachi band to Beatles impersonators, the live music shows at Epcot Center cover a wide range of tastes. Should you be here come nightfall, the Epcot fireworks are sure to dazzle. If you're lucky, you'll even get to catch a parade at Epcot. The Tapestry of Nations Parade at Epcot is an event that is sure to impress. The Epcot shows aren't limited to concerts and parades, however, so you'll have plenty in the way of variety to choose from. There's always something fun and exciting going on at Epcot Center, so you'll want to check the show lineup when you're in town.

While listening to hits on the radio is fine, it's often nice to treat yourself to a more original music experience. You can do just that at Epcot Center. The live music shows are among the top attractions at Epcot Center, and they cover a wide range of spectrums. At the China Pavilion, visitors can listen to the sweet sounds of Chinese harps, for example, while over at the Mexico Pavilion a Mariachi band fills the air with spirited sounds. For fans of Celtic music, the Canada Pavilion is the place to go, as a Celtic band complete with bagpipes puts on quite the show.

In addition to concerts, the 2016 Epcot shows also include cultural performances that revolve around things like Japanese candy making and Chinese acrobatics.

In addition to the live cultural shows that take place daily at the various country pavilions, the Epcot fireworks are among the top attractions at Epcot Center . Every night, the Illuminations: Reflections of Earth fireworks show amazes Epcot Center visitors. More than 1,000 pyrotechnic explosions occur during the Epcot fireworks show, and as if that wasn't impressive enough, large LED screens transmit images while lasers help to illuminate the sky. The whole performance is set to music, making it even more magical. Seeing the nightly Epcot fireworks display is a family favorite when it comes to things to do in Orlando , and as such it often gets pretty crowded at the World Showcase once the show begins. As such, you'll want to consider heading over to the World Showcase an hour or more in advance to get a good spot. The Tapestry of Nations Parade at Epcot, which showcases cultures from around the globe, ends just before the fireworks begin. If you stick to the parade route, which is displayed on the various Disney maps, then you'll be close to where you'll want to be for the fireworks.

The Disney characters are certainly among the top attractions at Epcot Center, and there are various opportunities to meet certain characters while visiting the park. Younger kids love the Turtle Talk with Crush exhibit, which revolves around the movie Finding Nemo.

Classic Disney characters like Mickey and Minnie Mouse can often be found at the Epcot Character Spot, so you can head there as well to meet some characters. You can certainly enjoy a full day when it comes to the Epcot shows, and if you like your shows extra festive, you can always try to catch one of the fun Epcot festivals. The food and wine festival is just one of the Epcot festivals that might suit your fancy.
