    Hi, we are visiting Disney World in 2weeks all the way from South Africa! We are planning on visiting Hollywood Studios on the 13/12/16 and want to watch the Fantasmic show @ 7pm, would we make it back to Epcot in time for a 8.45 dinner reservation?

    Greetings, and a warm welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Michelle!

    How exciting it is that you'll be visiting Walt Disney World Resort during the Holidays where the festivities will be in full swing.

    It is possible to arrive at your Epcot dinner reservation, Michelle, but you must consider the time of year and potential crowd levels you may encounter. May I recommend that you sit nearest the exit in the theatre for Fantasmic! affording you an expedited departure at the end of the show to beat the rush of the crowd which could greatly impact your timing. Once you arrive at Epcot, I'm not certain where you are dining, but timing in reaching that restaurant has to be considered as well.

    Travel to Epcot International Gateway-World Showcase can be done two ways:
    1) Take the Ferryboat Launch near the entrance of Disney's Hollywood Studios (about 30 minutes or more travel not including the wait for the Ferryboat).
    2) Take the Walkway from the entrance of Disney's Hollywood Studios (about 25 minutes depending on your pace).

    1) Disney Springs awaits with new shopping, dining and entertainment.
    2) Don't miss the new Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM! holiday fireworks show at Disney's Hollywood Studios.

    Jolly Disney Wishes!
