Epcot and monorail at night

    Heather from PA Asked Please note that experiences, policies, pricing and other offerings are subject to change and may have changed since the date of this answer.

    We are planning on attending the separately ticketed EPCOT After Hours event. I understand the World Showcase pavilions will be closed. I need to know if the RIDE PAVILIONS --such as Test Track, The Sea Base Aquariums, and Project Tomorrow-- will be open.

    Greetings Heather! 

    It’s always a delight to see you at planDisney!

    EPCOT is my favorite park, and it’s even more magical after the gates close and you get to experience an evening for the limited-capacity event. The thought of lower wait times in the queue for Soarin’ Around the World sounds dreamy, and I can’t wait for you to enjoy it however many times your heart desires! Thanks to lower wait times, meeting some of our favorite pals, and complimentary ice cream, popcorn, and select beverages, you will surely have a fantastic time at Disney After Hours at EPCOT!

    Heather, you’ve asked a great question. According to the event page, the attractions you can experience may include:

    Frozen Ever After
    Gran Fiesta Tour Starring The Three Caballeros
    Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind
    Living with the Land
    Mission: SPACE
    Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure
    The Seas with Nemo & Friends
    Soarin’ Around the World
    Spaceship Earth
    Test Track Presented by Chevrolet®

    As you know, attractions and experiences are subject to change; however, when I previously attended an After Hours event at Walt Disney World Resort, I was able to enjoy most of the major attractions at the park. I do believe that to be the case here. And in case you were wondering how Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind works during an After Hours event, my fellow panelist and pal Greg spoke to a Cast Member and learned about it here

    Wishing you an enchanting visit, Heather!
