Top Things to do in EPCOT without a Genie+ Reservation

EPCOT is my home park, and feel incredibly lucky to be able to share my passion about such an amazing spot on property. All of the Genie+ reservations are done for the day and you’ve got some time to explore…OR you just want to do a non-Genie+ day (which is actually incredibly fun!)

One of the top #HiddenGems in the World Showcase is the Japan Gallery, and as soon as you step foot in the exhibit…you’ll thank us:) History meets charm with this edu-tainment offering!

Okay, so although meeting characters isn’t for everyone, EPCOT’s World Showcase is packed full with character interactions. All you have to do is a little research on the Entertainment Schedule when you arrive at the park (or at the Resort)…and you should have a solid plan.

Gather ‘round this outstanding a cappella group as they bring patriotic music to life beneath an acoustically perfect dome. – from

This 15-minute acapella shows provide a transformation from current times into the past with a brilliant live-rendition of the time of the pavilion. These talented vocal artists share much more than patriotism and it’s completely worth the investment of time.

It’s so much easier to just share the video…and remember…it’s so much cooler in person!

This is an underground activity, but the entire “goal” is to get a drink at each pavilion around the World Showcase. Yes, it gets a lil’ expensive. Yes, there are t-shirts. 😉

Don’t feel the need to get drunk around the World Showcase? I agree with you! What’s my favourite activity? Eating around the World – of course!

Eat a snack at each pavilion and not only will it be a lil’ cheaper than drinks, but you’ll get SO full that you’ll be so thankful that you’re doing the EPCOT death-march around the world anyway;)

Did we miss anything on the list that you think everyone should experience?
