Epcot Passport

I love Epcot.  I love the music, I love Soarin', my son loves the Seas with Nemo.  And, I really love the World Showcase.  But, with a little one, we haven't spent as much time there over the past couple of years.  I think it's time for that to change.


Even though Z will be under a year for our February trip, we're going to make it a more interactive experience for Noah, so Z will simply tag along and hopefully enjoy watching!


The World Showcase has KidCot stations which consist of markers and Duffy bear cut outs, but, they also have stamps for Epcot Passports!

The World Showcase Passport can be purchased at the Laughing Place Store, most likely still in Epcot shops, but could also be made at home.

Just like traveling the world, we can travel the World Showcase and get our Passport stamped - the best reason the Kidcot stations are there.  I'm thinking we might even make one of these at home, one for each country!

With my youngster, we can work on letters - spelling and sounding out the names of the countries.  I think we'll leave room for details - what snack did we have in this country?  What characters were there?  Did we see any special performances?  

We have a lot of options - and I think we're going to get cracking, making Epcot even more interactive!  I'll make sure to share the final product when we make this!  I see a weekend project ahead of me...

  1. I have an awesome do it yourself Epcot passport which was designed by a fellow DIS board user. She is happy to have it shared. All you have to do is print it, cut it out and staple it together. I am happy to email it you of you like. It is small and not a lot of room for journaling. But my boys took it around the showcase and the CMs stamped it and wrote messages in their native languages.

  2. My boys have loved Epcot since they were little. Of course, since they started enjoying the characters more, Epcot became a great place to find unique ones for photos and autographs.

  3. I love hearing that! so many people think that Epcot isn't kid friendly, but I LOVE it and I'm hoping to share that love (brainwash) with my children!

    I was wondering if you still have the PDF for the DIY Epcot passport. If so would you mind emailing it to me. I would greatly appreciate it.
