EPCOT - Not just for nerds

As a kid, I have a very vivid memory of EPCOT...when we arrived in Disney after lunch, we headed over to EPCOT and immediately upon entering, found space Mickey dancing with guests.  I got a solo, slow-dance with Mickey in the center of a circle of park goers.  It was really fun!

As an adult, I love EPCOT for many reasons.  The rides and pavilions in Future World appeal to my inner techie nerd and the food is awesome.  The fact that the restaurants aren't dominated by burgers and fries and you can get an ice-cold beer from around the world are nice draws for me. 

Future World
Pam: SOARINTest Track is fun.  Eating at the Living Sea's restaurant Coral Reef (we celebrated my parents' 50th wedding anniversary there when they lived in FL). 
Christine: Mom definitely has an obsession with Soarin' really is a great ride.  I'm a big Michael Jackson fan, so I was excited when they brought back Captain EO.

World Showcase
C: Like I said earlier, I love food.  The Biergarten in Germany was a big surprise for me in that I really enjoyed the food and the show.  La Cantina de San Angel in Mexico has great beef tacos and the Tangiere Cafe has a great selection of Moroccan and Mediterranean fare.  I like the ride in Norway and love seeing the great topiaries that are scattered around the park for the Flower Festival in the spring. 
In France with Sleeping Beauty and her handsome prince
P: I like visiting all the countries, especially going on the ride in Mexico with the three Cabaleros.  I love eating at the Katsura Grill in Japan.  There's a beautiful garden for enjoying lunch or dinner.  We saw some baby ducks in the pond when we were there in February.
