The first was the Nemo and Friends Ride. This ride is only about 5 minutes long and we went on it twice (during two different evenings). There was absolutely no wait both times that we rode. During the ride, you sit in a giant clam and travel around "the sea" with Nemo and his friends. There are songs and dialog throughout. Someone (not me!) posted a video of the ride on youtube so you can check out more about the ride.

There were a few more rides suited for young children but they closed early.
Another awesome thing at Epcot is the character spot. This is where my children got to meet Micky, Pluto, Minnie, Donald and Goofy, all in one place.

In Epcot, you can visit 11 different "countries". All of them have shops and restaurants with items and food from that country. The workers that work within the "country" are originally from that country so that it feels pretty authentic. I would have loved to spend more time in this area of the park but there is not much for young children. The main reason that we actually went to this area of the park is because you can find some of the Disney princesses. Alyssa loves Princess Aurora from "Sleeping Beauty" and she was going to be in France. She was so excited to finally meet her! She even let Aurora give her a kiss!

Epcot also had many different fountains throughout the park. Malachi loved this!
