6 Things You’ll Regret Bringing to EPCOT

Can you believe it? Your Disney World trip to EPCOT is almost here!

We love getting ready to visit EPCOT!

We’re so excited for you. Is there anything better than seeing Spaceship Earth in the distance as you stroll around the World Showcase with your favorite snack or drink? But before you leave for EPCOT, we’ve got to warn you about things you should probably not bring with you.

A Popcorn Bucket

Look, I get it. Those Disney popcorn buckets are super cute and collectible. But lugging one around EPCOT? Not so much.

Instead, make a beeline for Karamell-Küche in the Germany Pavilion.

Their caramel popcorn is life-changing, and you don’t need a giant bucket to enjoy it!

No Antacids/Stomach Meds

EPCOT is definitely foodie heaven, and you’ll want to try everything (we always do!). But all that deliciousness can sometimes lead to a “less-than-happy” tummy.

School Bread!

Don’t forget to pack some antacids or stomach meds. You’ll thank yourself after indulging in one too many School Bread pastries from Norway.

Forgetting Anti-Dizziness Meds

Of all the EPCOT must-do rides, both Cosmic Rewind and Mission: SPACE can also be a bit intense.

If you’re prone to dizziness on rides, popping some ginger chews or motion sickness meds can be a lifesaver. The last thing you’d want to have happen is you miss out on these experiences because of nausea!

Metal Glasses Cases

We’ve mentioned this before, but it bears repeating — metal glasses cases are a big no-no. They’ll set off security every single time and slow you down.

What you’ll want to do instead is opt for a soft case and breeze through bag check like a pro.

Not Bringing an Appetite

Seriously, you have to bring an appetite when going to EPCOT. The food options are out of this world, and you’ll regret not having room to sample everything from all around the World Showcase.

Trying snacks in EPCOT!

Grab a quick bite beforehand and save your appetite for all the amazing food and drinks EPCOT has to offer. In other words, make sure to come hungry and leave happy!


I know the urge to bring everything “just in case” is strong, but you have to resist it because (trust me) lugging around a giant backpack full of “just in case” items is no fun.

Starbucks Recycled & Reusable Tote

Also, there’s just so much shopping you can do in EPCOT. Here’s what you’ll want to do instead: throw a couple of reusable bags in your fanny pack for those inevitable purchases.

Those are just a couple of the things you’ll want to leave off of your EPCOT packing list.
