5 Tips & Tricks for Keeping Cool In Disney’s Epcot

Guests who visit Walt Disney World love to spend plenty of time enjoying all that the four theme parks have to offer. Of the four, Epcot tends to be the favorite of many guests thanks to its unique attractions, entertainment, dining, and shopping. Part of what makes Epcot so unique is that it is home to two separate halves which are each massive and feature plenty of experiences for guests to enjoy. Future World in the front of the park celebrates nature and technology and World Showcase in the rear of the park celebrates eleven different pavilions highlighting countries from around the world. With so much to do and see in Epcot, guests spend a lot of time exploring the park which is mostly outdoors. With high temperatures, high humidity, and the strong Central Florida sun, guests might find themselves a little too hot and uncomfortable when spending time in Epcot. Instead of leaving the park to cool down back at a Disney Resort, guests should instead opt to follow any of these tips and tricks to stay cool in the park. Here are five tips and tricks for keeping cool in Epcot.


1 – The Land Pavilion

One of the most popular pavilions in Epcot can be found in Future World and features several different experiences which can all be enjoyed indoors in air conditioning.
