    Does Epcot world showcase open later than the future world area?

    Hi there, Robin! Welcome back to planDisney. It's nice to see you here again.

    Your visit to the Walt Disney World Resort is next month! How excited are you getting?! I can't think of a better place to celebrate a New Year, and the gorgeous Florida skies will chase away any January blues!

    Robin, this is a great question because many things are working a little differently during the phased reopening of the Walt Disney World Resort. In the past, Future World would open at EPCOT's official opening time, and then World Showcase would usually follow at 11:00 a.m., but since the reopening, all of EPCOT has been opening at the same time - usually mid-morning. We don't have any information about whether this will change. Be sure to check the Park Hours for the most up-to-date information (they will note if World Showcase has different hours), and you can always check operating hours in the My Disney Experience mobile app.

    You won't want to miss the EPCOT International Festival of the Arts during your visit this January. The festival celebrates the performing, visual, and culinary arts, and there are so many fun and delicious ways to enjoy the arts during your visit. Stay tuned to the Disney Parks Blog for details about festival food, entertainment, and activities as we get closer to the festival's opening. The Disney on Broadway Concert Series is a bucket list item for me, and I can't wait to enjoy it one day!

    Have so much fun in 2022, Robin! If you have any further questions as you count down the days, please come back and see us again.

    Wishing you a magical vacation,
