    Do the shops in the France pavilion open earlier than the others at EPCOT or is it just the restaurants in the pavilion?

    Hello, Lisa!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! We are delighted to answer your question regarding your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation!

    What a great question! Typically, the shops open when World Showcase officially opens. That would also apply to the France Pavilion. Now, if you wanted to go get an early breakfast-for-dessert treat at Les Halles Boulangerie-Patisserie, you could then take a leisurely stroll over to Norway and ride Frozen Ever After. Based on the time, you could wait until all of World Showcase opens or head back over to Future World to shop at MouseGear!

    You can always check the My Disney Experience App on your smart phone to find out the exact time when World Showcase will open each day.

    If you have other questions, please let me know! We are here to help in any way!

    Have a MAGICAL day!
