    When Epcot opens with extra magic hours in the morning; Are all rides open during the extra magic hours?

    Hello Melanie!  Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Savoring the early mornings at a Walt Disney World Resort Theme Park during Extra Magic Hours is 1 of the wonderful benefits of staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel.  My family and I can usually experience more during a morning with Extra Magic Hours than an entire afternoon at the parks.

    When Epcot has Extra Magic Hours, several attractions (but not all) are usually available for Guests to experience.  The schedule attractions participating in Extra Magic Hours at Epcot are:
    • Soarin';
    • Frozen Ever After (my pick for morning Extra Magic Hours);
    • Meet Anna and Elsa at Royal Sommerhus;
    • Living with the Land;
    • Spaceship Earth;
    • Test Track;
    • The Seas with Nemo and Friends; and,
    • Turtle Talk with Crush.
    As you can see, most of Epcot's Future World attractions are available, while only the Norway Pavilion's Frozen-themed attractions in World Showcase are open during Extra Magic Hours (due to their extreme popularity).  World Showcase does not "officially" open until 11am.

    If you do find yourself around World Showcase after Extra Magic Hours when Epcot officially opens, nothing compares to an early morning snack for Les Halles Boulangerie-Patisserie in the France Pavilion.

    Have a Great Morning!
