Fashion Inspiration: Walt Disney World’s Epcot Center


Walt Disney World's Epcot Center

After such a positive response to our post on fashion inspired by Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom, we’re back this week, bringing you more ideas for your wardrobe inspired by Walt Disney World’s popular Epcot Center.

One of the larger Disney parks, Epcot is enjoyed by young and old alike with its exciting Future World section, featuring thrilling attractions like Soarin’ and Mission: Space, along with its World Showcase, where you can go “around the world” in just a day. Special events throughout the year like the Flower and Garden festival in the spring and the Food and Wine festival in the fall make this park even more delightful.

While you may not believe it at first, Epcot can be a great source of fashion inspiration, even if you’re not a dedicated Disney fan. Don’t believe me? Below, I’ve created a series of outfits inspired by the park. Scroll down to view them all!

Future World Outfits


Dress, Cardigan, Earrings, Sandals

Soarin’ is an attraction like no other. Based off the popular ride Soarin’ Over California, from Disney’s California Adventure park, the ride takes you up and above famed California sights – from the beach to orange groves – and plays with your senses along the way!

For an outfit inspired by the ride, wear a pretty sky blue strapless dress with a boho chic lace-back cardigan. A pair of embellished t-strap sandals and daisy stud earrings finish the look that will have you ready to head off into the clouds…or maybe just summer break!

Mission: Space

Top, Shorts, Blazer, Wedges, Ring

Mission: Space is quite possibly Disney’s most thrilling ride, taking its passengers on an adventure into outer space. Although it’s just a simulation, it allows Disney-goers to experience what it’s like to be an astronaut heading off into the galaxy.

For a look that’s out of this world, pair a trendy crop top with a pair of confetti sequin tap shorts. Add a blazer with sequin detail, a pair of black wedge sandals, and a statement ring for extra flair.

Test Track

Top, Shorts, Sandals, Earrings, Headband

One of the most popular rides in Future World, Test Track takes you on an exciting journey through a vehicle testing facility.

Whether or not you enjoy speeding through test courses, you can capture the fun aesthetic the attraction gives in this outfit! Wear a bright orange peplum top with cute jean shorts. Slip on a pair of strappy sandals and for accessories, wear a polka dot bow headband and flower stud earrings.

World Showcase Outfits


Blouse, Skirt, Flats, Earrings, Headband

The France Pavilion provides guests with a sample of the sights and sounds of the country. Capture its romantic charm with a pretty peter pan collar blouse with a pink high-low skirt. Add bow ballet flats, pearl earrings and a cute headband to finish off the girly look.

United Kingdom

Blouse, Shorts, Blazer, Oxfords

In the United Kingdom Pavilion, you can explore the streets of London without leaving Florida. Steal the pavilion’s classic, buttoned-up appeal with a pretty bow blouse in a bold red color with a pair of white chino shorts. A linen blazer in a neutral color and a pair of oxfords complete the chic and preppy look!


Top, Shorts, Sandals, Scarf

Guests of all ages can enjoy the lively atmosphere of the Mexico Pavilion. From the marketplace full of art and gifts from the country to the fun boat ride, this pavilion is definitely one to check out! To create a look inspired by this section, try a bold floral print strapless top with a pair of white denim shorts. Wear with colored t-strap sandals and a bright scarf to complete the look.

What do you think?

    Since I read the post on fashion inspiration in Magic Kingdom I’ve been thinking about fashion inspiration from other theme parks and I had Epcot in my “Inspiration list”. I was thinking about using geodesic jewelry inspired by the geodesic sphere in the entrance of the park. I all the outfits, especially “Test Track” and “Mexico”. Nice post! :)

    I’m going to be the annoying person and ask: Why didn’t you choose any of the Asian countries from the World Showcase as inspiration?
    Sorry guys, I couldn’t stop myself.
