    On October 29 I have a dinner reservation at Epcot at 5 o’clock. I’d like to see the Star Wars show at Hollywood studios at 8:30. That park closes at 8 o’clock that day. What is the latest I can arrive that they will still let me in.

    Hi Andrew!

    Enjoying a scrumptious dinner at Epcot, and then heading over to Disney's Hollywood Studios to finish your evening with Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular sounds like a wonderful day at the Walt Disney World Resort!

    Although it is always up to security, you should be able to enter Disney's Hollywood Studios until 8 p.m. when the park closes.  You can even take the Walt Disney World Water Transportation from Epcot to Disney's Hollywood Studios!  Just remember, water transportation hours of operation do vary, so especially if you drive to the parks, make sure you have a plan for how you will back to your car after the fireworks.  I recommend asking the Captain of your ship when the water transportation between the parks will end that evening.  Since Epcot closes at 9 p.m. that evening, you will not be able to re-enter the park after that time.  

    You may also want to check out the Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular Dessert Party at Disney's Hollywood Studios, which would be an out-of-this-world way to add a little extra tasty pixie dust to your evening!  You could even arrive early to enjoy Fantasmic! before journeying to a galaxy far, far away!

    Have a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow!
