    Does Epcot's World Showcase open at 11 am or 9 am...? I feel like I read that it typically opens later than Future World, but all the times listed for our dates (Oct 31-Nov 4) show the park opening at 9 am. Is this for the whole park?

    Hello and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Epcot truly offers so much for folks of all ages.  It just has education and fun all wrapped up in one great theme park. Future World typically opens at 9:00 a.m. and the World Showcase opens at 11:00 a.m. each day. With all my visits to Epcot, World Showcase has always opened 11:00.  I can say that you will probably find this same pattern when you visit later this month.

    Diane's Tip of the Day:  You do not want to miss Illuminations: Reflections of Earth which you will find at Epcot.  This has to be one of the most beautiful fireworks display ever!  You must include this on your schedule when you visit Epcot and it is such a great way to wind down your day. 

    Have a MAGICAL day and "SEE YOU REAL SOON!"
