    We are staying at pop century tomorrow. What time can we enter Epcot ?

    Hi Becky, and welcome to planDisney!

    Wow, your totally tubular stay at Disney's Pop Century Resort begins tomorrow. Groovy! Let's chat about visiting EPCOT from your hotel.

    Usually, and it appears the upcoming week is no exception, EPCOT opens at 9 AM to the general public and 8:30 AM to onsite Guests (like you!) eligible for Early Theme Park Entry. In my experience, when entering through the International Gateway near the Disney Skyliner, you can scan your admission and enter the park beginning between 8 and 8:15. A Cast Member stationed inside the park will then confirm your eligibility for Early Theme Park Entry and allow you to walk towards your first attraction for the 8:30 opening. When we start our day in World Showcase, my family likes to experience Remy's Ratatouille Adventure first thing in the morning.

    Becky, for future reference, here are several places to quickly find theme park operating hours. Remember, as a Walt Disney World Resort Guest, you are always welcome to enter the theme parks 30 minutes before regular opening.

    • In your resort room, turn your television to the Walt Disney World information station (this was channel 2 in my room on a recent visit).
    • Also, in your room, try saying, "Hey Disney, what time does EPCOT open tomorrow?" The newest digital assistant will give you an answer.
    • On the My Disney Experience mobile app, scroll down on the home screen until you see the four theme park icons. Click on the Spaceship Earth globe image to see EPCOT's hours for today, and then click All Hours to view future dates for all theme parks.
    I hope this is helpful Becky, and that you have a fantastic time in EPCOT tomorrow. Remember to request to join the virtual queue for Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind at 7 AM or 1 PM for a chance to visit Xandar and battle evil with Star-Lord and his gang! Thanks for stopping by planDisney, and have a magical day!
