6 Reasons Why Epcot Is Better Than Magic Kingdom
Yvonne Jasinski

Here we go: Epcot is better than Magic Kingdom. I might get a lot of hate from this. Yet, I'm willing to support my stance until the grave. This is something I'm so completely passionate about, and being a Disney enthusiast I can honestly say this is something that I have researched in-depth. But, honestly, is this even a debate? Here is why I feel Epcot is the ultimate Disney park:

1. You can travel anywhere.

ANYWHERE!!! This one is particularly important because the World Showcase at Epcot is my everything. Sure, in Magic Kingdom you can go to Adventureland and Tomorrowland, but how about exploring new cultures and foods? Hmm, didn't think so. Epcot's World Showcase gives you a glimpse into that travel bucket list you've always wanted to achieve. Nobody ever says that before they turn 25 they want to visit Jungle Island. Instead, they say they want to visit France, which you can do at Epcot, and then you can go get tacos in Mexico. It's a win-win situation.

2. The golf ball.

No, it's not called the golf ball, but all true Disney people know what I'm talking about. There's something so magical about Spaceship Earth, that'll make you feel so inspired to change the world. Bonus: if you're taking a history test soon, just hop on that ride and you'll easily pass!

3. Free soda!

So we all know expensive Disney beverages are. I'm pretty sure it costs about five dollars for one bottle of water. However, Epcot has free soda!!! Yes, free!!! And not just any free soda (and unlimited refills), it's soda from all over the world. So, you can stay hydrated and experience more culture. Wow, Epcot, I'm just so proud. You're absolutely killing it.

4. Less crying babies.

If you're a crying baby, you might get offended; so stop reading now. But, Epcot is certifiably ~cooler~ than Magic Kingdom, and crying babies tend to flock more towards Magic Kingdom than Epcot. Turns out babies could care less about Norway's history, and, instead, like Winnie the Pooh better. I like both, but I'll go wherever I can thrive peacefully without a baby screaming in my ear.

5. Soarin'.

Do I even need to explain this one? Soarin' is one of the best theme park rides to grace this planet. Soarin' is an experience unlike any other, and once you go on this ride, you will truly understand why Epcot far surpasses Magic Kingdom. There is nothing like it, and there never will be. You're the real MVP Soarin'.

6. Cooler people.

This one may or may not be true, and it is hard to prove. But, its kind of a down low secret that everyone ~cool~ goes to Epcot. But, if you don't believe me, just know we're all judging you...

CBD Lip Balm Is The Calming Presence You Need In Your Life, Trust Me

I tried lip balm, sleep gummies, and an oil dropper from CBDistillery. Here's the final verdict.


CBD has been on making waves within the wellness space for the last few years. Generally related to the treatment of anxiety, insomnia, and chronic pain, it's growing easier to find small CBD companies who are making products specifically designed to fit your needs. As FDA rules for CBD production can be a little hazy, it's true that not all CBD products are created equally. That's why it's important to look into the manufacturing of whatever you're deciding to try, especially if you're new to taking CBD.

As someone who has tried a variety of CBD products — some victories, some failures — I was thrilled when CBDistillery sent me a package of their favorites. They included a Broad Spectrum CBD Oil Tincture, their Nighttime Gummies, and a CBD Lip Balm.

I Went To Disney For The First Time Since COVID-19 And It's Officially The Cleanest Place On Earth

I stopped focusing on the pandemic simply because, for the first time in months, I felt safe.

After a few months of self-quarantining, becoming suspicious of every cough, and blowing through masks like a medical school student, restrictions due to the pandemic are easing up a bit and businesses are warily reopening. While these public spaces may look the same on the outside, the way they function and operate is vastly different than a few months ago.

We've all been there. You see that super cute guy on your dating app of choice, his bio is funny, and then, the gut-wrenching feeling hits when you see their political views don't exactly line up with yours. He loves Trump, you can't stand him, or vice versa.

A lot of people will say you can get over politics, but I know from personal experience, as well as this survey, that politics play a huge role in whether a relationship will work or if we're even willing to swipe right on that profile.
