 A Walk Through Epcot  - As you enter Epcot you are met with the sight of the 180-foot-high geodesic sphere known as Spaceship Earth, the symbol of Epcot. Behind the silver-colored landmark is a showplace for man's achievements past, present and future, and an international fellowship of nations. Epcot is divided into two different 'lands' - Future World, which brings guests face to face with scientific achievements and tomorrow's technologies; and World Showcase, which opens the door to cultures from around the globe celebrating the sights, sounds and cuisines from 11 nations.
 Future World  -- Once through the entrance at Epcot, you walk past Spaceship Earth, and into Future World.  The sculptures in front of Spaceship Earth are Leave a Legacy, where guests previously had the chance to have their image etched onto a tile & placed on one of the sculptures.  Spaceship Earth is Future World's landmark adventure. Dramatic new scenes in the attraction and its post show depict life in the 21st century's "Global Neighborhood." With all-new narration by actor Jeremy Irons and an impressive new musical score, guests experience a time-travel journey from the beginning of time to the electronic age. Just beyond Spaceship Earth, on each side, you'll find crescent-shaped buildings, which house Innoventions, a dazzling new showcase where guests can be among the first to touch the technologies of today that will shape their lives tomorrow. To the east of Spaceship Earth: Test Track, presented by Chevrolet, is a mile-long, heart-pounding adventure that takes guests through hairpin twists and turns. The high-speed attraction mimics an actual proving ground where vehicles are put through their adrenaline-pumping paces -- testing brakes, acceleration, incline and climate control -- all in the name of safety. Universe of Energy features "Ellen's Energy Adventure," with Ellen DeGeneres, Jamie Lee Curtis and Bill Nye the Science Guy. DeGeneres plays a woman who dreams she's on the popular game show, "Jeopardy!" -- only to discover that all of the categories deal with one thing she knows nothing about -- energy. Mission: Space allows guests to travel on what feels like a real space mission. To the west: The Seas with Nemo and Friends, a ride through a Caribbean coral reef contained in a tank 200 feet in diameter and 27 feet deep. View tropical fish, sharks and manatees, while exploring secrets of a new frontier. The Land, which features the motion picture "Circle of Life," an environmental fable starring several characters from "The Lion King," "Living With the Land" takes you on a boat ride through greenhouses of the future. Don't miss "Soarin" where you can travel to the wonderful scenery of the state of California. Prepare to color outside the borders of your imagination, in the all-new "Journey into your Imagination". Hop aboard this ride through the secret testing labs of the Imagination Institute. Journey through the outrageous possibilities of sound. Unveil the mysteries of illusion. Even discover the color of your voice.
 World Showcase  - World Showcase Lagoon separates Future World from the World Showcase. Guests can either walk around the lagoon, or take a boat ride in a 'friendship' boat across the lagoon to World Showcase. Across World Showcase Lagoon, 11 nations offer distinctive wares, ethnic cuisine, shows, entertainment and architecture representing their cultures. Even the landscaping changes from country to country around the 1.3-mile promenade. Clockwise around the promenade: Mexico, with a boat ride through Mexican history and lively Mariachi bands; Norway, taking guests on a voyage through time beginning in a 10th-century Viking Village; China, with a Circle-Vision 360 film that takes guests to exotic sites like Beijing's Forbidden City, Mongolia and Shanghai; Germany, inspired by towns along the Rhine and in Bavaria; and Italy, with its reproduction of Venice's Doge's Palace and outdoor theater. The American Adventure, presented by American Express, with an ambitious show that takes guests through important moments in U.S. history; Japan, showcasing Japanese gardens and dancing outdoors; Morocco, where 19 Moroccan artisans spent months re-creating the intricate, colorful tilework of this North African country; France, the setting for an enchanting film tour through its cities and countryside; United Kingdom, with lovely flower gardens and cobbled streets; and Canada, with entertainment by a bagpipe band and a Circle-Vision 360 film through some of Canada's most picturesque regions. Each World Showcase pavilion is a celebration of the nation's life, culture and heritage. World Showcase ambassadors come from across the globe to represent their homelands at the theme park. As part of the show, holidays and festivals are commemorated by the ambassadors in ways they would be celebrated "back home," allowing Epcot guests a chance to get "caught up" in these international celebrations. Between the France & UK pavilions you'll find the International Gateway, Epcot's smaller entrance. From here you can walk to the Epcot Resorts (Yacht & Beach Club, BoardWalk, Swan & Dolphin), or take a boat ride to the resorts or Disney's Hollywood Studios. World Showcase Lagoon plays host to 'IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth' each night. This fabulous firework show will encircle you with dazzling special effects, colorful lasers, brilliant fireworks, and fiery torches performing to a stirring, original symphonic score - not to be missed. Bang a drum. Dance along. Free your spirit and get swept up in the celebration surrounding you.
