    Love this panel! Checking it daily and loving the terrific tips! 46 days to 5 days at POP with family of 11 (3 - 73yr age range); first visit for DGS3 and DDin-law28. MNSSHP 9-13; ADRs planned; 5 day PH. What do you suggest for a 3 yr old at Epcot?

    Dear Donna,

    Well, you've found it-one of Walt Disney World's itsy bitsy flaws. There is really a lack of "things" to do for the little ones at Epcot. Don't get me wrong, Epcot is a sensory treat but the themes by ,default tend to appeal to the older visitors like 6 yrs old and up. But (there's always a but) even with that said, there is a gem of an area at Epcot that will entertain your 3 year old---->The Seas with Nemo & Friends. This is an indoor attraction based on the Pixar Film Finding Nemo. You enter the building via a ride on a clam shell where The story of the movie is played out as the characters seem to magically swim in the real aquarium. Once the ride is over you enter the building in which you can view dolphins, manatees and other aquatic life. Bruce's Shark World is a play area for kids with a really great photo opportunity. (Trust me on this one, at the very least have a camera phone ready) You and your little one can also go see Crush, the sea turtle from Finding Nemo, interact with the kids. This attraction is a must do for kids, and pretty cool for adults too. It's called Turtle Talk with Crush.  Tip: have your child sit on the floor in front of the theater, with a cool hat if possible, and Crush may actually speak to him personally. Last thing, knowing that this is "will do" at Epcot. Have your little one watch Finding Nemo just before vacation for a refresher. Let The Memories Begin!!
