    There will be extended evening hours at Epcot during our trip. We have reservations for things at Hollywood Studios that day and are planning to stay for Fantasmic. We have park hopper tickets. Can we just park hop for extended hours?

    Hey Howdy Hey Amber and welcome back to planDisney!

    I bet you are getting super excited about your Enchanting trip to the Most Magical Place on Earth real soon! Extended Evening Hours in the parks is such an amazing time and I am happy to hear you may be able to experience them in EPCOT during your vacation. Let's go over some qualifications and then get you set to experience the park like you never have before!

    Just a quick review, Extended Evening Hours is a perk available for Guests staying onsite at Disney Resorts Collection hotels staying at Disney Deluxe Resorts, Disney Deluxe Villa Resort or other select hotels. As long as you are staying in one of the qualifying resorts, you should be all set to experience the parks with a significantly reduced crowd that evening. 

    Checking out the current Park Hours, Fantasmic! usually starts around 8:30 PM EST and runs approximately 30 minutes. If Extended Evening Hours are from 9-11 PM EST, from the current calendar, it may be tough to get from Hollywood Studios to EPCOT due to the crowds leaving for the night. By all means, you are more than welcome to try but transportation will be key. You might want to think about taking a ride-share option or a Minnie Van from Hollywood Studios to EPCOT. This will be your most direct transportation option as well as the one that will get you the closest to and from each park. 

    No matter the decision you make, you will be in a place where dreams come true and I am sure you will have a magical experience. Please feel free to stop back with any further questions you may have, we are always happy to help!

    Have a Magical day,
