    Hi! Can you please tell me if the World Showcase and shops , quick service, or any of the countries’ shows are open during the Epcot after hours events. While we like rides, we do also enjoy the countries and browsing . Thanks !

    Hi, there!

     Welcome back to planDisney, Teresa. We just love when you stop by because we LOVE helping you plan your next Walt Disney World Resort vacation!

     I'm a big fan of the Disney After Hours events. I think the theme parks are extra magical late at night! Not to mention, Guests of After Hours events enjoy low wait times for fan-favorite attractions AND complimentary snacks and beverages. Sign me up! You ask a great question about Disney After Hours at EPCOT. While most attractions will be available throughout World Showcase during this ticketed-event, not all the country pavilions and their retail and dining locations will be. The Disney After Hours at EPCOT page on the Walt Disney World Resort website states, "Attractions, entertainment and experiences are subject to change without notice," so I can't tell you exactly what you can and cannot count on accessing in World Showcase. What I can tell you, though, is that your event ticket for Disney After Hours at EPCOT grants you entrance to the park as early as 7:00 PM, well before the event officially begins. I recommend you arrive by 7:00 PM on the dot, and then explore World Showcase before Disney After Hours at EPCOT starts! That way, you can be sure to enjoy all the countries you hope to. I also recommend using that time to grab a bite to eat. But be sure to leave room for all the complimentary snacks and beverages offered during the event!

     Will you be staying at a Disney Resort hotel for your visit? As a Guest of the Disney Resorts Collection, you can count on complimentary transportation getting you back to your hotel when Disney After Hours at EPCOT is over. Talk about convenience!

     I hope this was helpful, Teresa. Please let us know if you have any other questions about your Walt Disney World Resort vacation! As always, we'd love to help you plan your next magical visit.
