    When Disney World reopens, I am excited to see the new Epcot Forever nighttime show since Illuminations was always my favorite night show. Is it feasible to get dinner at Disney Springs beforehand, i.e. what transportation options would be available? Thx!

    Howdy Megan!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  I have recently had the opportunity to view EPCOT Forever and loved it!  I am so excited to help you with your question!

    Since you will be visiting the Walt Disney World Resort in November, I would start looking at park hours in a couple of months to see what time EPCOT Forever will begin.  It typically begins at 9 p.m., but all times are subject to change, and park hours could alter the time also.  If you want to dine at Disney Springs before the show, I would allow a four-hour window from your dining reservation to the beginning of EPCOT Forever.  There is complimentary bus transportation that can bring you back to your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel and then use the quickest transportation from your resort hotel to EPCOT.  If you are not staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, then I highly recommend the Disney Minnie Van Service.  I have recently had the opportunity to experience this, and it was AMAZING!  In my opinion, the Minnie Van Service is the best way to travel in style!  There are also buses that will take you from Disney Springs to other Walt Disney World Resort hotels, and then you could board a boat or the Disney Skyliner to EPCOT, but since you will be on a schedule, I would opt for the Minnie Van Service.

    I am looking forward to all the amazing things planned for 2020 on my next visit to the Walt Disney Walt Resort, and I know you are too!  Your vacation will be here before you know it, Megan!  To stay up-to-date on everything happening in the months to come, check out the Disney Parks Blog.  Also, get ready to enjoy the adventure of Imagination, while you view the nighttime spectacular, EPCOT Forever!  

    If you would like to add a sweet finale to your EPCOT Forever experience, you might enjoy the Frozen Ever After Dessert Party at World Showcase.  This way, you will have the perfect viewing while enjoying delicious desserts!

    If you have any more questions while you are planning, please come back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  We love to help with all your planning questions!  Happy planning, Megan!

    See Ya Real Soon,
