    DH&I coming to disney 9/15/2011-9/20/2011. going to use evening extra magic hours. have never used lines tend to be long at that time of year? are all rides and showes open? at epcot both future world and world showcase open for late hours?

    Hi Kristin,

    You are going to love taking advantage of Extra Magic Hours at the Disney theme parks.  The most popular attractions in Future World and World Showcase will be available during Extra Magic Hours, but some attractions will close earlier.  For instance, during our last visit my son wanted to ride The Sum of All Thrills in Future World during Extra Magic Hours but it had closed before we got to it. The best strategy is to look at your Times Guide when you arrive at the park earlier in the day.  On the Times Guide it will give the hours for all attractions that are not open from opening to closing that day.

    I think you're really going to enjoy traveling in mid-September, too!  As most American school children will be back in school and the Labor Day crowds will have dissipated, you'll likely enjoy lower than average attendance rates in the parks.  I would still plan on picking up Fast Passes for the most sought-after attractions (like Soarin'), but otherwise lines should be very reasonable during your upcoming visit. 

    Wishing you and your husband a spectacular trip!
