Future World Attractions

Future World Attractions

Below is a quick overview of each attraction in Future World at Epcot.

 

The Circle of Life

  • Ages 3+ (No height restriction)
  • 12 minute short-film
  • Located within The Land pavilion
  • Queue is indoors and air conditioned
  • Fun show featuring Timon, Pumba, and Simba reminding us to protect our fragile environment.

Disney & Pixar Short Film Festival

  • Ages 3+ (No height restriction)
  • 15 minute short-film
  • Located in the Magic Eye Theater in the Imagination pavilion
  • 3D animated show that features the Disney and Pixar shorts: Get a Horse, For the Birds, and La Luna.

ImageWorks Labs

  • All ages (No height restriction)
  • Allow about 30 minutes to explore
  • Hands-on exhibits at the exit of Journey into Imagination with Figment

Innoventions

  • All ages (No height restriction)
  • Allow about 30 minutes for each Innoventions East. Character wait times at Innoventions West can be long – expect between 30 – 90 minutes, depending on the time of year.
  • Innoventions East features Colortopia, an exhibit that allows you to hands-on exploration of the world of color. Innoventions West is currently a character meet-and-greet location that features Baymax on one side and Joy and Sadness on the other.
  • Note: FastPass+ are not available for the character meet-and-greets at Innoventions West, so plan to get there early, or else be prepared to wait in line!

Journey Into Imagination with Figment FastPass+

  • Ages 5+ (No height restriction)
  • 6 minute ride
  • Queue is indoors and air conditioned
  • Figment is a classic and this ride used to be pretty cool. However, I feel like this ride is tired and lacking a little since they “renovated” it in the late 90’s. Still worth a visit, probably not a FastPass though.

Living with the Land FastPass+

  • Ages 4+ (No height restriction)
  • 13 minute boat ride
  • Located within The Land pavilion
  • Queue is indoors and air conditioned
  • This is my favorite ride at Epcot. You now think I’m crazy but here’s why: it’s always a walk-on; it’s a long boat ride through air conditioning, so you can sit and relax; they have beautiful tropical plants, vegetables, and trees that they are growing in unique ways; there are baby alligators. I rest my case.

Mission: SPACE FastPass+

  • Ages 8+ (44″ height restriction)
  • 7.5 minute pre-show, 5 minute ride
  • 4 riders in 1 simulator vehicle
  • Orange Team: high intensity; Green Team: low(er) intensity
  • Queue is indoors and air conditioned
  • Experience blasting off into space and landing on Mars. NASA provided Disney with images from the surface of Mars, so this experience is probably as close as we will actually come to orbiting the Red Planet.
  • Tip: Those who experience motion sickness need not apply.

The Seas with Nemo and Friends FastPass+

  • All ages (No height restriction)
  • 4 minute ride
  • 2 adults and 1 child fit in the Clamobiles
  • Located within The Seas pavilion
  • Queue is indoors, air conditioned and dimly lit
  • Climb aboard your Clamobile and journey into the depths of the ocean to help Marlin find his son. The special effects at the end are pretty fun!¬†
  • Tip: Set aside some time to explore the aquarium! They have manatees, sting rays, sharks, and turtles. Plus they sometimes have short dolphin demonstrations!

Soarin’ Around the World FastPass+

  • Ages 7+ (40″ height restriction)
  • 5 minute ride
  • Located within The Land pavilion
  • Queue is indoors and air conditioned
  • Experience the sights and smells from around the world as you soar to new heights on this incredible ride. Definitely a must-do, I would recommend getting a FastPass+ for this one, lines can be very long

Spaceship Earth FastPass+

  • Ages 3+ (No height restriction)
  • Cars are designed for 2 riders
  • Queue is outdoors and covered
  • This ride has been recently redesigned and it is pretty fun! Smile for the camera as you start your journey through the history of human communication. At the end you get to pick out your future and see your face up on the giant globe! The exit area for the ride has lots of video games, so you might want to plan to spend some extra time in here checking it out

Test Track FastPass+

  • Ages 7+ (40″ height restriction)
  • 3 minute introduction, 5 minute ride
  • 3 riders per row, 6 riders per car
  • Queue is partially outdoors and covered, partially indoors and air conditioned¬†
  • Recently revamped, the pre-show area now features the ability to customize your own vehicle and take it for a test spin on the course. Test Track is the fastest ride at Disney World, topping out at 65 mph.

Turtle Talk with Crush FastPass+

  • Ages 3+ (No height restriction)
  • 12 minute interactive show
  • Located within The Seas pavilion
  • Queue is indoors and air conditioned
  • Innovative technology allows children to actually talk to their favorite turtle friend, Crush. The show is very fun, especially for younger kids who might even have the chance to ask Crush a question. Later dudes!

Universe of Energy (Ellen’s Energy Adventure)

  • Ages 4+ (No height restriction)
  • 8 minute introduction, 37 minute ride
  • Queue is mostly indoors, partly outdoors and uncovered
  • This long ride is another great way to relax while at Epcot. It takes you on a journey through the centuries, locating different natural energy sources. The ride is a bit dated (Ellen, Bill Nye, Alex Trebek, and Jamie Lee Curtis look so much younger!) but still a great way to get off your feet and even learn something!
