    Hi! My family of four has a dining reservation for 8:30pm at Teppan Edo, but Epcot closes at 9pm that night. Will the “show” that our chef puts on be shorter because of the time crunch? How late are guests allowed to stay for dining after the park closes?

    Greetings Cassie! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Planning advance dining reservations is actually one of my favorite things to do while organizing a visit to the Walt Disney World Resort. With so many wonderful dining locations there is always something delicious and new to try.

    Teppan Edo at Epcot is one of my family’s favorite restaurants! We always make sure to secure reservations because this is an extremely popular dining location. Not only is the food excellent, but the experience with the chefs cooking right in front of you makes this place so special. They are highly skilled and make sure that you have a wonderful and fun time.

    If you were able to book a table at 8:30 p.m. you will enjoy your experience just as any other Guest, regardless of Epcot closing time. Take your time to enjoy your meal, the environment, and take advantage of the world-class service provided by Cast Members. Tip: our family’s favorites are the assorted tempura, filet mignon and hotate (scallops)! The combinations are also a great option.

    I hope this helps you while planning, Cassie! Please come back to visit us real soon if you have additional questions, we are delighted to help!

    Best magical wishes,
