A visit to Disney can be hectic and most people don’t take time to slow down and enjoy the parks because they want to get as much as they can out of every second of their time there. And I get it. It’s not cheap, so you want to feel like you’re getting your money’s worth. What people don’t realize is that stopping for a few minutes to regroup, grab a quick snack or cold drink, and sit down can be just what they need to really enjoy their visit.
With that in mind, I’ve picked out my favorite places to chill in all four WDW parks so you can know the best hidden spots too! Make sure you check out my favorite secret spots in Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom after you learn about Epcot in this post, as well as the best places to watch the Magic Kingdom fireworks without a crowd!
EPCOT is probably the most “adult” park (though I loved it, even as a kid!), so it automatically feels a bit more relaxed. But it can still get crazy, especially during the Flower and Garden (another post here!) and Food and Wine festivals. There are two places that I’ve never seen crowded and are perfect for relaxing.
The winding streets in Morocco are not only gorgeous, but usually empty. I think the main reason is that people don’t realize they wind around so much. A few other pavilions are like this (China, Canada and the UK in particular), but Morocco always seems the least busy. There are benches all around, some covered and some not, depending on what you’re looking for. There’s also a bathroom, for added convenience.
Behind the EPCOT Character Spot and the Coca Cola Cool Club is an air conditioned space that’s often used for special events, but open even when there aren’t events going on. It’s nice and cool and there are tables and restrooms and lots of open space to let the kids run around for a minute. This would be a great place to wait out a summer storm!
