    First time NYE in Epcot! Are there lockers at International Gateway entrance? Is it faster to exit that way after fireworks to Hollywood Studios for a bus? Better to just wait out the crowds and stroll World Showcase? Any tips for the night appreciated!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Nicole! Your holidays will be happy, for sure, because you are on your way to Walt Disney World Resort!

    The fireworks spectaculars at Epcot are always a beautiful sight to see. I’ve loved the holiday end tags to IllumiNations for many years! Personally, I love to watch the fireworks from China, with my favorite World Showcase snacks in hand. After the show is over, I find that it’s better to mosy along towards the front of the Park, taking in the sights in good time. It can be quite a walk to Disney’s Hollywood Studios just for a bus (the other park may close around the same time, so crowds will be present there, too), so unless you plan to grab Ice Cream at Ample Hills or visit Jellyrolls on the Boardwalk, heading to Epcot’s bus stop would be my choice. To answer your other question, yes, there are lockers towards the International Gateway of Epcot. You’ll  find them near the Stroller rentals as well as the ATM, so rent whichever size suits your needs and hop into Epcot to have a ball!

    If I can help you with another planning tip for your upcoming holiday visit, please let me know. Happy Holidays! ~ Lindsey P.
