Epcot Tours

There are so many fun things to do at Epcot Center, and if you like tours, they are among the list of possibilities. Not only will you see some intriguing things on the various Epcot tours, but you will also likely learn quite a bit. Education is at the heart of Epcot Center , and teaching visitors about the world in which they live is what truly drives the theme park. Sure, there are rides here where you can let loose a little, but what Epcot Center really boils down to is one great science and sociology center. It's an amazing place. When you treat yourself to one of the Epcot tours, you'll only appreciate Epcot Center even more. Some of the tours give you behind-the-scenes looks, while others explore topics that range from Epcot's conception to its wonderful greenhouses.

For those who want to learn how Epcot Center came about, The UnDISCOVERed Future World tour is a definite winner. Lasting just over four hours on average, this tour of Epcot Center takes guests to backstage areas that other parkgoers aren't privy to. During the tour, you'll learn about Walt Disney's inspiration for Epcot Center, which is quite amazing, and you'll also learn about how the park was actually created. Should you find that you still want to access some more backstage areas during your Epcot Center visit, you can also consider the seven-hour Backstage Magic tour, which lets you in on all kinds of Disney secrets. You'll gain insight into Disney's scientific and artistic side of things on this tour of Epcot Center, which also includes backstage stops at Magic Kingdom and Disney's Hollywood Studios!

If these tours are a bit longer than what you had in mind, then you might prefer Around the World at Epcot, which is a shorter tour of Epcot Center . One of the interesting things about this tour is the fact that you'll be cruising around parts of the park on a Segway, which is a futuristic, two-wheeled, stand-up scooter. Before the Epcot Segway tours begin, you'll get lessons to help you master your own Segway. After that, it's off to the World Showcase part of the park to enjoy a spin. The Around the World at Epcot tour only lasts two hours, so if you're tight on time, it's a good option. DiveQuest is another one of the Epcot tours that is good for those who are a bit tight on time, as it only lasts three hours. You'll have to be a certified scuba diver to enjoy this tour, however, as it involves diving into a gigantic aquarium. All of your scuba gear will be provided, and during your actual 40-minute dive, you'll see tropical fish, sea turtles, and even sharks among your tankmates.

As long as everyone in your group is at least 13 years of age, you will want to also consider adding Dolphins at Depth to your list of possible Epcot tours. This tour is ideal for those who want to get into the water but who are not scuba certified. You'll swim with dolphins and get to experience The Seas with Nemo & Friends exhibit, which is an interactive gem that the whole family will enjoy. Like DiveQuest, Dolphins in Depth lasts approximately three hours. You can also immerse yourself in water if you enjoy the Epcot Aqua Tour, which lasts 2.5 hours. Don't forget your swimsuit if you want to enjoy the Epcot Aqua Tour, as you'll get the opportunity to swim in the aquarium that is used for The Seas with Nemo & Friends. After your behind-the-scenes look at things, it's into the large fish tank to view more than 65 marine species. If you can't arrange a Florida scuba diving trip on the side during your Orlando vacation, the Epcot Aqua Tour and the other water-related tours here should serve as suitable replacements.

As mentioned in the opening paragraph, the amazing Disney greenhouses are the subject of one of the Epcot Tours. The Behind the Seeds at Epcot tour takes you to the greenhouses at The Land Pavilion, which are utterly mind-blowing. In addition to seeing fascinating crops from around the world, this tour will also involve spotting alligators and releasing lady bugs, among other things. Since it only lasts one hour, the Behind the Seeds at Epcot is the most convenient of the Epcot tours, not to mention the least expensive. In addition to Behind the Seeds and the other Epcot tours mentioned in this article, visitors to Epcot can also consider booking a more inclusive VIP tour. The VIP tour team at Disney can help you customize your visit to include all of the things that you want to include, from Epcot shows to the Epcot rides. It's really a good way to go, and not as expensive as you might think.
