Florida Guide > Disney Parks
My wife said to me the other day which is your favourite Disney Park of all?
What I question I thought crikey which one is my favourite how would I decided if I had to! I wondered?
Epcot had always been a favourite of mine I have to admit I think it was for a number reasons the first was It always seemed so futuristic every thing that was featured in it seems so ahead of the future plus it had the World showcase
Secondly I can always remember its being featured on John Cravens Newsround when it was built I know a lot of younger readers will have no idea of what I am on about but as a young teenager it was an important kids new program and I can always remember its being reported on and the site of mothership earth made an impression on me
The third reason was when we first visited Epcot many years ago a lot of the future communications displayed in mother ship earth were futuristic and had not been achieved but now most of the ideas had now become a reality it just shows how we can be educated by our leisure time
Those guys at AT & T must of surely be ahead of their time, I mean in 1973 who would of though of such a thing called the internet connecting the world and communicating via video connected to you own home computer amazing!
Or maybe it was the absolutely amazing laser and firework shows we were to witness on the 50th anniversary in the lagoon at the world show case this was truly a site to behold I am not really one for the fireworks being a middle aged man but the fireworks above the lagoon are truly awesome and should not be missed
One of the more funny reasons I like Epcot is the UK Area complete with Pub and Fish and Chip shop a Harry Ramsdon’s no less I can help chuckle though when you wander round this area is this what Americans really think Britain is like
The world show case is truly a great place I love exploring it the Chinese acrobats are absolutely fantastic to watch and one of the best places has to be Mexico where you wander inside there temple and are confronted with a dark court yard and restaurants this really does have some atmosphere
But my favourite ride in Epcot has to be the Nordic boat ride in Norway all I will say is keep a look out for those trolls! !
But then I set to thinking about what about Magic Kingdom that has something special hmmmm…. . now is Epcot my favourite? I am not so sure! !
