Journey Around the World at Epcot

Posted August 26, 2009 by Kate Hamman

FL-Orlando-nemo-DEF Travel around the world without ever leaving Orlando at Walt Disney World's Epcot. While there, you can take part in popular rides, enjoy sweet treats, and grab a one-of-a-kind souvenir.

The Seas with Nemo & Friends: After climbing aboard a clam-mobile, you'll begin an underwater adventure with animated-friends Marlin and Dory in pursuit of a missing Nemo. Your search for the elusive clownfish will take you deep into one of the world's largest aquariums, where you're surrounded by more than 2,000 swimming fish and other sea life. The recently opened attraction combines animation with real life aquatics for a memorable and entertaining ride. Entrance is included in Epcot admission.

Boulangerie Patisserie: With a global showcase of dining options, it's hard to pick just one. But if you're looking for a sweet after-dinner treat or mid-afternoon snack, then the Boulangerie Patisserie in France can't be beat. This little café tempts with éclairs, napoleons, fruit tarts, cream puffs, and croissants. The menu also features a ham and cheese sandwich and quiche. Prices start at $2.25 for a Mickey Mouse cookie, and you can enjoy a cup of coffee and most items on the menu for under $5.

Mouse Gear: For all things Mickey, head to Mouse Gear. The shop overflows with Mickey memorabilia, fairytale collectibles, and Disney souvenirs such as keepsake picture frames, t-shirts, hats, and figurines. Mouse Gear stays open 30 minutes later than Epcot, and can be a great place to wait for the crowds to disperse. Don't forget to count how many Mickeys you can find hidden throughout the store. It's free to browse, but how much you spend is up to you.
