    What does it mean that the world show case is not open until 11am! I thought that Epcot opened at 9 am? Thanks

    Hi Rebecca,

    Typically the gates in Epcot open at 9:00 a.m.  Future World opens first, then World Showcase opens at 11:00 a.m.  Don't worry, there is plenty to see and do in Future World for 2 hours before the entire park opens.  If you are staying at a resort located near the Boardwalk area you'll still be able to get into the park at 9:00.  There will be a roped off path that leads you to Future World.  Similarly, if you have breakfast reservations at Akershus, you will be able to walk through World Showcase to get to the restaurant.

    Hope this helps. Have a magical vacation!

After spending 25 years in RI, my husband and I relocated to GA with our youngest, who is now in high school. I took my first trip to Walt Disney World when I was 11 and I have traveled many times since then with all different party sizes. From creating our first itinerary as a honeymooner to later creating magical experiences for our multigenerational family gatherings, every aspect of planning a vacation has been pure joy to me.  Learn More About Diane
