Kids of all ages will love visiting with the different sea creatures at the Seas with Nemo and Friends Pavilion. There are numerous sea creatures to look at. However, I guarantee your family will love the manatees and dolphins the most. Make sure you take the time to do the scavenger hunt to learn all about the marine life.
The history of communication is shown firsthand during a ride on Spaceship Earth. Throughout the ride, your family will experience man landing on the moon, the Renaissance, the burning of Rome, and the invention of the very first computer. The kids will really love that last one, since computers look much different nowadays!
Over in the Future World of Epcot, there is an attraction called Living with the Land. This learning attraction is designed to show families like yours how important preservation and conservation really is. This information is shared during a boat ride.
Impressions de France is one of the many learning attractions within the World Showcase at Epcot. This specific attraction is inside Palais du Cinema. It is an eighteen-minute movie that shares the different destinations around France.
Once you have finished watching the movie, you will want to explore all the other countries within the World Showcase. Eating and drinking are the two most popular activities in this section of Epcot.
One of the most popular learning attractions at Epcot is Soarin’ Around the World. Your family can take a hang-gliding ride over some incredible locations around the world. This is one attraction you may do with your family multiple times, as you will notice something new every time.

To make your life easier, get the app downloaded before you get on the plane to go on your Disney vacation.
Epcot is notorious for holding festivals throughout the year. If one festival interests your family more than all the others, I recommend planning your family vacation for the time that festival is held.
The current festival schedule is as follows:
Most people will rush right out of the park as soon as the fireworks are over. While the park is closed at this time, there is nothing wrong with taking a leisurely stroll towards the exit. You might even want to do a little late-night souvenir shopping since the stores won’t be crowded.
These are the best learning attractions, plus what you need to know about Epcot. Your family will love the ambiance that can be found throughout the Disney Park. I guarantee you will make multiple memories with your family, no matter how old your kids are.
