Awesome Planet

When you visit the Land Pavilion at Epcot, Awesome Planet will be the first attraction you encounter on the upper floor. The attraction is located on the right-hand side of the building.

If you have visited Epcot before, you might remember that you enter this pavilion on the top floor. There are escalators, stairs, and elevator options to access the downstairs of the pavilion where Living with the Land and Soarin’ are located.

In the picture below, this sign hangs outside the entrance of Awesome Planet. It indicates the time left before the next screening.

There is a waiting area for the next show to begin. You might make a humble nod to the awe-inspiring walls of carpet while you wait.

It’s a lovely carpet mural.

Here’s a look inside the theater. It’s somewhat similar to Impressions de France.

After everyone is seated, the theater will darken, and Awesome Planet will run its course.

Awesome Plant is a cute film that teaches an important lesson. I find it the best of the current films running at Epcot. Some of the other films are the Beauty and the Beast Sing-Along and Canada Far and Wide.

The sing-along is pretty rough, in my opinion, while Far and Wide isn’t inspiring.

As far as the best time to see Awesome Planet, I suggest doing it late morning or early afternoon when wait times for other attractions are at their longest. The film is by no means a must-do attraction, but sometimes everyone needs a break from the hustle and bustle of theme park touring. Awesome Planet makes for a good place to take that break.

Epcot is one of the best parks for touring on a rainy day. With the Land, Imagination, and Seas Pavilions sitting next to each other, this area of the park provides a good amount to do in the event of bad weather.
