    Will be in Epcot 12/14/12 with regular tickets (no EMH). I see that Illuminations begins at 9:30pm and that the park closes at 9:30 with EMH to begin after. Will we have to leave before the fireworks begin since we are not staying on property?

    Hi Greg!

    No worries!  The attractions will become off limits to guests not staying for Extra Magic Hours, but you will had no problems watching Illuminations, taking your time to leave the park, shopping on your way out. Basically to enter an attraction, guests are asked to show a room key. 

    Enjoy planning your magical Disney vacation and please write back with more questions.
