WELCOME TO WORLD
All ELEVEN LANDS are centered
around a reflective lagoon and where you can enjoy the
different cultures and cuisines.
Take your time going from land to land because there is so much
to see and discover. The architect
is all about the land that you are visiting. The authentic costumes are beautiful
and it all makes you feel
that you are in that country. Some countries have shows, live entertainment and/or
EPCOT added the kid friendly "Kidcot" stations at every
land so your
child can create FREE crafts and enjoy the experiences, too!
Here you will discover Cast Members that are actually from the
country you're visiting and are always eager to talk about their homeland.
You can find unique souvenirs
in each of the wonderful lands.
