Best Attractions for Cooling Down at EPCOT

American Adventure

Many guests are concerned with the heat during their Disney vacations, and for good reason! Central Florida can become quite hot with temperatures averaging above 90 degrees during summer and fall months. Even if you are traveling during the winter months, you might still encounter a day with temperatures well above average. EPCOT is a large park with many attractions and things to do and see. Because of its size you can expect to walking a lot during your trip. If you find yourself in need of some air-conditioning and a break during your day at the park then check out our list of the best attractions for cooling down at EPCOT.

Disney & Pixar Short Film Festival

If you need a seat and air-conditioning then make your way toward Disney & Pixar Short Film Festival, located in World Celebration in EPCOT. This celebration of short films is a 3D experience with real-life effects like rumbling, water spray, and more. This experience is 18 minutes long, perfect for cooling down and resting. If you arrive prior to showtime you can enjoy the preshow detailing Disney and Pixar’s animation processes.
