United Kingdom, another wild mix of architectural styles, has no rides or shows, so few people know about the knee-high hedge maze in back. The U.K. is popular chiefly for its English-style pub, the indoor Rose & Crown Pub & Dining Room (which you can enjoy without a reservation or eating), and a counter-service fish and chips shop. That’s two fish-and-chips outlets in a block—far more than you’d find even in London these days. After 5:15pm, duck into the pub to catch Pam Brody or Carol Stein, longtime Epcot entertainers who both play piano here and lead the guests in song. Request their version of “Do Re Mi” (it’s clean).
