    How do i time our 11 am arrival in Orlando with Fast Plus in Epcot our first day? We are staying at the Beach club and we also have a dinner reservation 5:30 inside Epcot. Thank You

    Hello Deorah,

    I'm sure you are getting really excited about your upcoming trip and I'm happy to help you. It's great to hear that you are trying to get on top of the planning in an attempt to make the most of your time there.

    I always like to budget in about two hours from arrival to completing the check-in process. Keep in mind that based on the crowds traveling at any given time could vary and this could be slightly shorter or could take longer, but generally speaking, within two hours, you should be all checked in and ready to go explore the parks. Once you are checked-in at the Beach Club, you can walk directly to Epcot's International Gateway Entrance. This takes about 10-15 minutes. You will be entering the park in World Showcase in between the United Kingdom Pavilion and France Pavilion. So, depending on where you want to make your FastPass+ selections, there could be some additional walking time to attractions, such as Test Track or Soarin'. So, be sure to factor that in, as well. It would probably take about 10-15 minutes to walk from the International Gateway entrance to those attractions. Please note that these are purely estimated times and could vary depending on the pace of your traveling party. Lastly, you should have plenty of time to make your dinner reservation at Epcot at 5:30pm.

    Have a magical trip and feel free to stop by with more questions as your planning continues.
