    I am coming to Disney World in August 2019 - have a park hopper. One day we are doing EPCOT in the AM and then using fastpasses at DHS. Have to be out of EPCOT about 1 pm. I need the best way to get in most of the E ticket rides at EPCOT from 9 to 1!

    Hi, Alice!

    I think your plan to park hop between Epcot and Disney's Hollywood Studios sounds great!  If you exit Epcot through the International Gateway, Disney's Hollywood Studios is just a quick walk or boat ride away.  Even if you are planning to save your FastPass+ selections for Disney's Hollywood Studios, I think you can still fit in several attractions during your morning at Epcot.

    The best advice I can give you is to start your day early!  I would see if you can book a breakfast reservation at one of the Epcot restaurants prior to park opening.  This will get you into the park before the rope drop crowds.  My family and I love the Garden Grill Restaurant.  The Garden Grill has the most delicious cinnamon rolls I have ever tasted, and it is located right upstairs from Soarin' Around the World.  If you finish your Garden Grill breakfast early enough, you can walk right down to Soarin' Around the World and ride with little to no wait.

    If your travel party doesn't mind separating on attractions, using the single rider line at Test Track is also another great way to save time.  If you need to grab a snack or on-the-go lunch, pick up a bite to eat in World Showcase and enjoy it while you wait in the standby queue for Frozen Ever After.  Be sure to use your My Disney Experience mobile app to monitor wait times so that you can choose the best times to visit your must-do attractions.

    Wishing you a park hop til you drop kind of day!
