    On 11/22 (Tues.) we are planning to visit Epcot. They have EMH in the a.m. and we were planning on going back to the room for a nap then come back for our 5pm dinner reservation. Should we worry about the park reaching capacity and not getting back in?

    Hi Janice:

    Heading back from the Parks to take afternoon naps is a great way to help ensure party members remain well-rested and eager to experience more fun in the Parks.  Unfortunately, once a Park reaches capacity, even having an advance dining reservation will not guarantee you entry or reentry into the Parks.  I can't guarantee that Epcot will not reach capacity, but the Tuesday of Thanksgiving week may not be as crowded as the rest of Thanksgiving week and Epcot is a very large Park.  If you need to leave the Park for some down-time at your Resort, I would do your best to arrive back at Epcot as far in advance of your reservation as possible.  This way, in the off-chance the Park is closed due to capacity, you can increase the chances of being allowed back inside the Park in time for your reservation.

    Enjoy your vacation.
