Travel to Mexico, China and the UK all in one day?
By Jillian Cardinal
Is it possible to travel the whole world in one day? Well believe it or not Walt Disney made it possible by creating Disney’s Epcot. Epcot is a Disney park that showcases 11 countries of the world; Mexico, Italy, Norway, France, United Kingdom, China, Germany, America, Canada, Morocco and Japan.
When it first opened on October 1st, 1982, two people from each of these countries brought a container of water from their nation and poured it into the fountain to show they are all unified. This fountain still stands today and is known as the Fountain of Nations. Epcot is one of the best places to eat because there are all different types of food to enjoy and most of it is very healthy with the exception of desserts. There are over 30 tons of fruits and veggies grown and served in the restaurants in Epcot.
I know that if I go to Epcot one place that I always have to visit is Mexico. Mexico has to be one of the best countries in Epcot because the people in Mexico are the best at making really beautiful and colorful art. Mexico also has amazing food and the servers they are fantastic they are fast and very nice. Mexico also has a ride that a lot of people don’t know about and it’s called the Gran Fiesta Tour and it is a water boat ride I have always loved this ride because it is funny but at the same time relaxing.
China is also a great place to visit in Epcot for souvenirs. When I went to China in Epcot and I got a Chinese fan and I went up to the desk to pay for it and the offered to write my name in Chinese on it!!! So cool! Also, China is one of the most relaxing countries and if you take a close look at the pavilion you will find many amazing carvings that you may not notice at first glance. China is the kind of place that you can look at and just admire all of the beauty.
If you like fish and chips The United Kingdom is the place to go they defiantly have the BEST fish and chips I have ever had. But there is more than just amazing food there! A few of your favorite Disney characters such as Mary Poppins, Alice and Snow White can sometimes be found. Also, I thought that the red telephone booths were so much fun to play and take photos in.
I hope you get the chance to travel through the world in just one day.
