    How many miles is the walk around the countries at Epcot Center?

    Hello Joanne! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    As a frequent participant in the RunDisney Events at Walt Disney World Resort, I am all-too-familiar with the distance around the lagoon of World Showcase in Epcot. For many events, World Showcase is the last mile and by that time, my body feels like it is taking every step around the world.

    The actual distance around Epcot's World Showcase lagoon is roughly 1.2 miles. Many Guests that start out at Showcase Plaza find themselves a little overwhelmed at the distance once they reach the halfway point at American Adventure. For this reason, boat transportation leaves from Showcase Plaza and delivers Guests to the Morocco or Germany Pavilion to assist with the distance.

    As well, Epcot has an additional entrance called "International Gateway" that is located between the France and United Kingdom Pavilions. If you are staying at a Disney Resort Hotel in that area or find yourself around Disney's Boardwalk Promenade, this entrance definitely helps with the distance.

    Epcot is such a large Theme Park that I recommend that Guests with small children look into bringing or renting a stroller to navigate Epcot.

    Have a Magical Visit!
