    Hi, I am using touringplans for a Nov. visit to Disney. After seeing future world, the plan shows only 10 to 15 minutes for each pavilion in the world showcase. Is this enough time, or do we need 2 days to enjoy all of Epcot?

    Hi there, Lisa!

    I'm so glad that you found to use as a guideline for planning your days at Walt Disney World! They've got some extremely helpful ways to make the very most of your time and I really love it.

    I'm not too sure that 10-15 minutes is enough time to really see and enjoy each of the 11 pavilions in Epcot's World Showcase. There are great shops and interesting things to look at around every corner. The shops carry authentic items from the actual countries they represent and all of the special touches are truly impressive. I don't recommend rushing through any of it because the exploring is just too much fun! Plus, the Norway and Mexico Pavilions actually have an Attraction to ride and several of the Pavilions have a short movie to watch. I recommend allowing 30-45 minutes for each Pavilion. You might spend less time in one country and spend more time in another, just depending on what magic you're enjoying at the time!

    It's very important that you grab a Times Guide on your way into the Park because there are different types of live entertainment all throughout World Showcase and you'll want to catch some of those shows if you can! The different entertainment information will be detailed on the Times Guide. My vote is for 2 days at Epcot if you have the time during your trip to allow it!

    I sure hope this helps, Lisa! Please be sure to let us know if we can help with any other questions you have!

    Wishing you a Pixie Dusted vacation!
