I am not sure of all the relative sizes of each of the parks, but Epcot definitely feels like its the largest park, and by a fairly large margin.
However it also seems to be the least populated park, mostly due to the massive lake and water features in the middle - not to mention the giant ball.
The purpose of the park seems to be mostly cultural exchange, as it features a showcase of 11 nations (tho one of those nations is the USA, which seems utterly redundant). However from what I can tell its basically just enough things to keep the kids from getting bored, plus a lot of beer.
I am not saying that is a deal breaker.
The park is beautiful tho, and serviced by the classic Disney monorail.
However due to the magic of Missy, our Disney travel agent, we got some last minute FastPasses to the Test Track ride - creating a concept car, then going on a test drive.
After that ride we started walking around the showcase of nations, but most of us quickly ran out of energy, so it was more of a death march than a fun thing. Debbie wanted to explore more, but we didn't. This made Epcot the first park we felt we couldn't fully experience in a single day.
We had reservations at Chef Mickeys, a buffet at one of the resorts, for supper, so we headed over that way around food time. We ended up with an awesome table that overlooked the Magic Kingdom. So this ended up being our first real view of the Disney Castle.
One more day left in our Disney World adventure. What will we do? What shall we see? What rhetorical questions will be posed in order to generate interest in the next post? Stay tuned to find out!
