Tip Tuesday: Your Passport to the World (Showcase)

Epcot Passport

Welcome to another Tip Tuesday!

My apologies for the delay in this post. Too much to get done in the real world.

Anyway, on to this week's tip!

I previously talked about the KidCot stations in World Showcase and how much fun they can be for kids at Epcot.

These KidCot stations also are a great place for another unique adventure at Epcot -- the World Showcase Passport.

Guests can pickup a passport at just about any retail store in Epcot. They run around $10 each. The package includes the passport booklet (seen above), stickers from each World Showcase pavilion and an Epcot button.

Here's how it works: Take your passport around to each KidCot station in World Showcase and present it to the cast member. That person will write a special message reflecting that pavilion. For instance, at the China pavilion, a cast member will stamp your passport with your Chinese Zodiac sign (as you can see from my page below, I was born in the year of the Dog (much to my kids' laughter). Additionally the cast member wrote my name and a special message in Mandarin (as you can see below, it's "Dreams Come True").

The stickers included feature different scenes from each pavilion. Once you're done, you have a great one-of-a-kind keepsake to remember your trip around World Showcase.

Guests of any age can enjoy the passport, however, I feel it's best for kids who are at least of elementary-school age. Preschoolers might not fully appreciate the experience and I most definitely recommend the passport for adults (or big kids at heart like me).

The next time you're in Epcot, be sure to have your passport as you enjoy your trip around the World (Showcase)!!
