      My wife, daughter and I visited Orlando just prior to Christmas 2011. Epcot was our favourite theme park, as we visited it three times.

      My daughter who was only 4 at the time loved Spaceship Earth, we must have gone on it about 12 times, as the queue was often short. Another ride we enjoyed was 'Soarin', the only drawback with this ride is that we had to queue for nearly three hours.

      As you say any visit to the Disney theme parks is not complete without a visit to the Epcot Center.
