Three most underrated attractions at Epcot
When you think of Epcot, what do you think of? Soarin'? Test Track? World Showcase? Million: Space? Spaceship Earth? All popular attractions. But what about underrated attractions? We've compiled our top three below.
1. Living with the Land. This is a favorite attraction for me. A boat ride exploring agricultural advances, it's fun cruising through the Epcot greenhouses and seeing folks on the Behind the Seeds Tour (also highly recommended). It feels like being on a fun middle school field trip. It's peaceful, educational, and there's rarely more than a 5-minute wait. Grab your Soarin' Fastpass, then a meal at the highly-rated Sunshine Seasons, then hop on Living with the Land.
2. Maelstrom. "The spirit of Norway has always been, and always will be, adventure!" If you've ridden Maelstrom before, you'll recognize this quote. Tucked into the back of the Norway pavilion, this ride is often overlooked by those traipsing about the World Showcase. It's a fun little boat ride through Norway's Viking history and current industry, with some trolls, storms and spirits thrown in for good measure. Have you ever stayed put for the movie afterwards?
3. American Adventure. I have to admit that I only experienced this patriotic attraction for the first time in the past year. As big a production as Magic Kingdom's Hall of Presidents, the American Adventure is a 30-minute moving tribute to the United States' past and present, as told by animatronic hosts Mark Twain and Benjamin Franklin. Thirty-five different animatronic figures are used throughout the course of the show. And if you show up very early for a showing, you might luck out like we did and get chosen as the First Family! Be sure to check out the a capella Voices of Liberty before or after the show, too.
