    Hi! Coming in Oct for Food & Wine Fest. We see one day Epcot has late Extra Magic hours. Does that include the food booths in World Showcase? It used to specify Future World hours and World Showcase hours but we don't see that anymore! Thanks! 

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Yvonne!

    It's no secret around here that the food is one of my favorite things about Walt Disney World Resort, so naturally, I love visiting during the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival too! I have a trip coming up this year around the same time you do, and I'm really itching to try some of the new Global Marketplaces that were annoucned this year, so let's chat a little bit about how Extra Magic Hours work in the evening at Epcot and what kind of food you can expect to find there.

    While the Global Marketplaces that pop up during the Festival do not participate in Extra Magic Hours and will close with the park at 9 p.m., a selection of the dining locations in World Showcase do stay open so you can still get a late-night international snack. Sunshine Seasons in Future World often stays open during Extra Magic Hours as well, so you have lots of choices if you get hungry around that time. Dining locations open during Extra Magic Hours are subject to change, so make sure to grab a copy of the Times Guide when you arrive at Epcot, or check the My Disney Experience app when you're ready to eat to see what's open!

    I hope this answers your question, Yvonne, and please let us know if there's anything else we can do to help you plan your magical vacation.
