    JellyRolls? How soon does it fill up? We were considering going tothe boardwalk for an early dinner (5:30), then jellyrolls for a couple hours (7-9), then back to epcot for extra magic hours...or should we plan on Jellyrolls after epcot 11


    What you want to do is keep an eye on the clock for two things.  The first is the ending of IllumiNations, the second is the 9:00 pm to 9:30 pm timeframe.

    There is no question that if Jellyrolls is not already busy, when the IllumiNations show is over at Epcot there will be a large flow of people coming, and the lines will be out the door for a while.

    Otherwise we have found that it really starts getting pretty hopping by the 9 to 9:30 timeframe. Not that you will never get in after that, but seating will be a challenge. There are plenty who arrive as early as 7 to get that premium seat, but I find that a bit extreme personally.

    BOTTOM LINE: if you wait until after Extra Magic Hours, you may not get in. If you can get there before the end of IllumiNations, you will be fine.

    Have a magical vacation!
