Epcot was the second park built at Disney World. This park is unlike any other theme park I have ever been. This park feels like two separate parks rolled into one. There is something for everyone, and a larger footprint at this park makes it feel less crowded and more relaxed.
This park is divided into 2 areas:
The World Showcase
At Epcot you have several transportation options to get you to the park.
You can park for free at Epcot if you are a resort guest or annual passholder. Otherwise parking is $22/day.
If you are staying at the Grand Floridian, the Polynesian, or the Contemporary Resort you can take the monorail from your hotel directly to the transportation and ticket center. From there you can transfer to the Epcot Monorail get to Epcot.
There are bus stops to and from the resorts that stop in front of Epcot.
Using the Lyft app you can call a Disney Cast Member to pick you up in a special van that looks like Minnie Mouse. All Minnie Vans have 2 car seats available and can take you anywhere on the Disney property for a flat $25 fee.
At Epcot you CAN bring a bag or backpack on to every attraction. So feel free to pack a bag with your essentials for the day.
