    We are visiting Epcot in late September during the Food and Wine Festival, and was wondering at what time does the world showcase open? We want to go directly to the Frozen ride as soon as it opens.

    Hi David,

    Great time of year to be visiting Walt Disney World!  I love the Food and Wine Festival and the fact that you're obviously a savvy planner:)

    Disney's Epcot-Future World typically opens at 9:00am every day unless it's the park selected to have Extra Magic Hours; then it would open at 8:00am or stay open about an hour after the usual park closing time.  You can check out the park calendar for your specific trip dates here.

    Epcot's World Showcase rarely deviates from its 11:00am opening.  I'm super excited for you! 

    Thanks for visiting the Moms Panel.  Have a pixie dusted vacation!

Magic Kingdom still takes my breath away, but my favorite place to be is on a Disney ship looking at the horizon and breathing in that crisp, clean ocean air!  I love planning Disney vacations for others and making sure it's more than they dreamed. Learn More About Marisol
