A Day at Walt Disney World’s Epcot with Two Kids {3 and under!} – Our Favorite Rides, Shows + Experiences

So far I’ve shared with you how I traveled as the solo parent to Disney with my boys, all the fun we had at Animal Kingdom and our next stop brings us to Epcot!

We planned this to be our second park day because there were Extra Magic Hours in the morning which we wanted to take advantage of since we would be up anyways! We had a little bump in the road when we learned that the Monorail was broken down in the morning due to ice on the tracks {yes, THATS how cold it was the week we visited!} So we didn’t get there as early as we would have liked, and we had to take the bus instead of the ease of the monorail – BUT we made it and everyone was pumped.

First stop for us – after posing for photos by Spaceship Earth: The Seas with Nemo and Friends. The boys loved this ride even more after seeing Finding Nemo the Musical the day before at Animal Kingdom. It’s a cute ride for sure and you get off and you get to explore a mini aquarium inside the building – which I totally never noticed before – but it’s got some big fish + mammals inside – like dolphins, sharks, sea turtles, porpoise {I believe!} and more! Was really cool to see after the ride.

Next up we made our way over to Living with the Land – which we had a Fast Pass for and hopped right on. It’s a classic you can’t miss, plus its nice just to sit in a slow moving boat and enjoy the ride.

Next we decided to make our way over to The World Showcase {my favorite!} and our first stop was Mexico for the Gran Fiesta Tour ride. This is another one of those that I always have to go on – its a classic. The World Showcase opens up an hour after the actual park, so we were first in line to get on the ride just as it opened. The boys really liked this.

Next we continued down to Norway and because we had some Fast Pass issues because of the delayed monorail, we were able to score tickets to Frozen Ever After – which is a really cool ride, the boys LOVED it, and I did too. The characters were so real and well done, plus if you have ever ridden the Norway boat ride before it was Frozen, you might remember a fun little twist in the ride.

Next on the agenda – Naptime! Our goal was to get the boys to sleep and then sneak away for some chill mama time – with Prosecco of course!

We win!

The one good thing about the crazy sleep schedule at night is you can usually time it so the littles all nap in-sync during lunch time.

So we stopped in Italy and enjoyed 45 minutes of quiet – Another Disney miracle!

We made lunchtime reservations in Germany at the Biergarten Restaurant – because we knew they put on a really cool musical show that we thought the boys would like. BUT all 3 boys ended up napping for almost the entire meal, which worked out great for the mamas who got to eat in peace!

Brooks woke up about halfway through to enjoy the meal and the two 2 years olds slept until the very end. You can see in the photo below, Graham just stretching and waking up with his feet on the table {#rude} – it’s crazy the music didn’t wake them up, but THAT’S how tired everyone was!

But either way, a quiet, enjoyable lunch – I’ll take it!

Once everyone was finally up, we continued our walk around the world.

This is one of my favorite parts of Disney because they do such a wonderful job in each country and it’s so much fun to stop and explore – but that’s not something I was able to really do on this trip with young kids – next time!

Our next Fast Pass was a special mama + Brooks date for Soarin’ {since the littles were too little!} – we watched a YouTube video of this ride before our trip and Brooks was pumped to go on it. It’s one of my favorite rides, so different, fun and beautifully done {like everything else in Disney} but add this to your list for sure, its guaranteed to make you smile.

Side Note: The Littles saw the Circle of Life show in the same building while we went on this and enjoyed it!

We had Fast Passes for SpaceShip Earth all day long, but they kept on having maintenance issues with it for whatever reason – they literally opened it up as we were heading home on the monorail, which was a bummer, but we will have to check it out again next time!

Our final ride of the day was Journey into Imagination with Figment – which I had never been on before, but figured – why not? It was a cute slow moving ride that everyone enjoyed – the coolest part was at the end, a really big play area for kids to explore + play, which I would definitely recommend if you need a break from any weather and just need a little area for the kids to run around in!

Can’t leave Disney without a Mickey pretzel, so we got some of those for our ride back to the hotel.

Another amazing Disney Day in the books. What’s your favorite Epcot experience?! Next time I want to take Brooks on Test Track for sure!

Epcot, you are a special one. I can’t wait to come back!
