    We have dinner reservations in Epcot on 12/23 but would link to spend the first part of the day in Hollywood Studios and end in Epcot with the extra magic hours. Could we have issues with entering the Epcot later in the day? Any recommendations?

    Hi Alanna:

    It sounds like you have a good plan for the day.

    To ensure that you can visit two parks in one day, I would make sure you have the Park Hopper option on your ticket that will allow you to enter and leave all four theme parks on the same day.  Since you will be visiting the parks during the crowded Christmas season, it's theoretically possible that a park can close for new entrants due to capacity. However, in my experience, due to its size, Epcot tends not to close much for capacity, so you should be able to enter the park that afternoon with no problem.  However, I would try to arrive as early as you can to help make sure you can enter the Park. In addition, in the off chance that Epcot closes for capacity that day, make sure you bring your dinner reservation confirmation with you so you can explain the reason you need to visit Epcot at that time and not be directed to a different park.

    Enjoy your vacation.
