    On December 26th, Epcot will be open late for Extra Magic hours 10:30pm to 12:30am. I was wondering, is the whole park open for that Extra Magic hours, such as World Showcase or is it only select rides?

    Welcome back, Kim! 

    I see you are well into planning your December vacation - It's truly the most wonderful time of the yEAR at the most magical place on earth. I also want to thank you for continuing to trust us for tips and advice. 

    As a guest of a Walt Disney World® Resort hotel, Evening Extra Magic Hours will offer you the opportunity to extend your pixie-dusted day well into the night, and Epcot is no exception. Not only will you be able to experience all Future World has to offer, but World Showcase will be available for your enjoyment as well. 

    Some of the smaller shops, restaurants, and the Holiday Kitchens available during the Epcot International Festival of the Holidays, will still close at the regularly scheduled time. All other World Showcase offerings, including attractions and shows, will be available during Extra Magic Hours. 

    Kim, Epcot is my favorite places to be during the holidays, so please let me know if you should have any additional questions. I am here to help you plan a festive-filled day. 

    Happy Holidays,
