    During Extra Magic Hours at Epcot, are the shopping and food venues open? Especially the ones in World Showcase. I've seen the list of attractions that are open but wondered if I need to prioritize shopping during the day.

    Hi Michael,

    Yes, most of the food and shopping venues are open during Extra Magic Hours in the Disney theme parks.  However, some of them do operate on slightly different schedules.  I suggest that you check the free Times Guide available each day as you enter the parks.  On it, hours of operation will be listed for venues that have hours that differ from general park hours.  Check this list of early closings soon after you arrive at Epcot, for instance.  Then you'll know which locations you'll want to visit before Extra Magic Hours begin.  A little planning early in the day will prevent disappointment later.

    Thanks for a great question!
