    If Epcot closes at 9 pm, and Illuminations is on at 9pm..how late can I wander around world showcase for?

    Hi, Suzanne!

    As soon as Illuminations begins in Epcot, each of the countries will close for the evening. You are welcome to leisurely exit the park and the World Showcase area once Illuminations ends but know that all attractions will be closed.

    Usually once this nighttime spectacular is complete, my family heads to MouseGear for any last minute souvenir shopping. We let the crowds filter out a bit then head to our car or Disney bus.  This seems to be the best way to avoid the rush at the exits.

    Have a wonderful evening in Epcot!
