    We have reservations for the Princess Breakfast Dec 25th in the Norwegian Pavillion at EPCOT. We weren't planning on staying in EPCOT after the breakfast. If we wanted to go to Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom or Hollywood Studios next, which is the closest?

    The closest theme park to Epcot is definitely Disney's Hollywood Studios. These are the only two parks that are within possible walking distance of each other. The best way to get from Epcot to DHS is to exit Epcot via the International Gateway located between the England and France pavilions in the World Showcase. From there you can either walk (about a mile) or (my choice) take the free Friendship boats.

    If you are planning on switching theme parks on Christmas Day, you should plan to as early as possible. Christmas is one of the handful of days year that there's a possibility of temporary park closures due to capacity issues. You'll want to be where you want to spend the day as early in the morning as you can get there.

    Good luck!
