    Following on from the other threads what is the first thing you do when you get to Epcot :)

    We have our photo taken as soon as we come through the turnstiles and then ride Spaceship Earth, it sets me up for the day :D

    It`now become quite a ritual for us at Epcot.
    As we seldom arrive bright and early we first of all get a fastpass for Soarin` [the wait time is more often than not enormous!]. This is followed by a walk around the lake taking a few photos and browsing, by which time our allotted time for Soarin` has arrived.

    Whenever we arrive at Epcot there always seems to be a massive long line for SE, [mainly due to the fact that we seldom arrive early!], however we normally do this ride as we leave the park as by then it is usually a walk on with no line at all. :yes:

    We head to the world showcase, unless we've entered through the IG.

    We stroll through the countries, poking here and there... we'll wander up to Future World at some point and do whatever attraction interests us that moment. We often do Spaceship Earth as it is a permanent favorite, even though they've changed it up so much.

    Soarin'? Meh. We do it, but don't go out of our way. I find it kind of boring. :sorry:

    I usually freeze in place. Totally conflicted. :mental:

    One part of me wants to go get a FastPass to Test Track.
    The other part of me wants to go get a FastPass to Soarin'.

    So, I end up frozen in place watching people go into Spaceship Earth. Usually takes a prod in the ribs by my DW to get me moving again. Of course, then whatever we do, I agonize over if we made the right decision.

    Strange. Only place that happens to me. :surrender:
