    What time do the parking lots open? I am visiting Epcot and AK in mid January.

    Hi Michelle,

    Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. It’s exciting that your trip to Walt Disney World is almost here!

    To get right to your question, parking lots open one hour before the scheduled theme park opening times. You can take a look at the park hours on the Park Hours Calendar.

    It’s great to hear you’ll be visiting Epcot. While you are there, be sure to celebrate your inner artist and enjoy the special events planned for the Epcot International Festival of the Arts. There will be so many wonderful showcases for visual arts, performing arts, and culinary arts.

    You’re also visiting Disney's Animal Kingdom at a great time. While you are there, be sure to travel to Pandora – The World of Avatar. I love exploring the Valley of Mo'ara, and Avatar Flight of Passage is on of my new all-time favorite attractions.

    Enjoy your stay at Walt Disney World!

Meet the Panelist: Jerry, Pennsylvania

The playful and creative optimism of all things Disney has enthralled me since I was a kid. I loved watching "The Wonderful World of Disney" on Sunday nights, seeing all the live-action and animated classics in theaters, and — of course — visiting "The Most Magical Place on Earth" for the first time 45 years ago. These days, the big kid in me still loves to play Disney. As a long-time Disney destinations vacationer, I'm looking forward to helping you play Disney starting here at planDisney!
