    I have a trip planned in January, and I was trying to plan my day in Epcot. I see that the park opens at 10 with early entry at 9:30. Does future world open first allowing guests to ride rides there or does it all open at the same time?

    Hi Kathleen!

    In a few months, you will be in Walt Disney World in sight of Spaceship Earth ready to fly around the world, blast off to Mars, and zoom about with Remy!

    My favorite benefit to staying at a Walt Disney World Resort is the thirty minute Early Theme Park Entry to every park, every day. This half hour jump on the crowds allows you to experience a popular ride or two before most Guests have even finished their Starbucks lattes. At Epcot, you will typically find many of the attractions open early are in the traditional Future World area. Rides ready to board at the early opening in the newly named World Celebration, World Discovery, and World Nature neighborhoods are usually Test Track, Mission Space, the Seas with Nemo and Friends, Soarin' Around the World, and Spaceship Earth. If you head to World Showcase, you will usually find Frozen Ever After and Beauty and the Beast Sing-Along are available. Attractions open at Early Theme Park Entry can change seasonally, so the list could be different by the time you arrive.

    Wishing you a wonderful visit to see Mickey!
