    Hello, I am pleased to say I will be visiting WDW in August. I heard all of Epcot will open at the same time now ? So does that mean if it is an early entry day the New Frozen ride opens early-(8am) too and is it true that Fast Pass reserve now begins 7?

    Hey, Jennifer!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I am so excited about all the new happenings at Epcot.

    With Frozen Ever AfterRoyal Sommerhus and Soarin' Around the World opening this summer, Epcot is going to be even more exciting .

    In August, Epcot's Future World will open at 9:00 a.m. and the World Showcase will open at 11:00 a.m. The exception is the Norway Pavilion. Frozen Ever After and Royal Sommerhus will be open at 9:00 a.m. to welcome Guests to Arendelle and meet Queen Elsa and Princess Anna even during early Extra Magic Hours. You will also be able to make morning dining reservations at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall as early as 8:00 a.m. (subject to availability). I would check the times again the closer you get to your Disney Vacation to make sure these prime attractions will not open any earlier.

    Yes, recently the FastPass+ start time changed to 7:00 a.m. which means you don't have to stay up or get up in the wee hours of the morning to make those magical time-saving reservations. I am so thankful!

    Disney Dad Tip: While you are planning your Disney vacation, check out Awaken Summer at Walt Disney World Resort. These ideas and suggestions will help make your trip unforgettable.

    Jennifer, enjoy making many Magical Memories!
