A few friends of mine think that Epcot is the best thing at Walt Disney World. There are quite a few people who agree with that belief, such as the folks at EPCOT CENTRAL, all for their own reasons. I can’t say that I disagree with them, as Epcot can be underrated by park visitors. Ask any person who dislikes Epcot and they often say the same things:
- “There’s nothing to do there.”
- “It’s boring.”
- “Why do I have to walk so far?”
Epcot is an immersive environment, with surprises and treats around every corner, if you would only bother to look. But that’s a different topic for a different day.
For those Epcot naysayers out there – I say that if you don’t like where you are, sometimes it’s because you aren’t creative enough to make your own fun.
Today, I will provide you with something to do after you have seen all that Epcot has to offer – courtesy in part from my creative Epcot-loving friends, and in part by today’s website, DRINK AROUND THE WORLD.
DRINK AROUND THE WORLD offers travelling advice for how to best handle each country while travelling with your favorite beverage, and it contains a fairly well-updated list of the beers that are available in each country.
So after you make notes of the information on that site, share these unofficially official Beers Around The World rules with your Epcot travelling companions and experience Epcot in a completely different way.
BEERS AROUND THE WORLD
After many years of practice using these rules, Web Watch can make the following recommendations:
- Have fun, but don’t infringe on the fun of other guests. This is especially true later in the journey when things can get out of hand if you are travelling with a large group.
- Give yourself plenty of time. This is a journey, not a race. Relax, and use your drinking time to explore each pavilion properly. Since you now have a reason to loiter in each country, take the time to really enjoy what Disney has put together for Epcot visitors.
- Web Watch has found that travelling clockwise, from Mexico to Canada, is preferred over travelling counter-clockwise. This is even more practical if you are staying at an Epcot-area hotel.
- If you are not staying at an Epcot-area hotel and the group is rather toasted, it might be a better idea to grab a taxi from one of those nearby Epcot-area hotels (the Boardwalk, the Yacht Club) rather than to fight the Monorail or Disney Transport bus crowds. The other guests will thank you, and you’ll probably get to your own hotel a little faster.
- Don’t forget to eat something along the way. A good rule of thumb is to start out with nachos in Mexico, have an eggroll in China, sushi in Japan, and pastries in France.
