    I am visiting WDW in March 2024 and have purchased tickets for the After Hours EPCOT (March 7th) event. It states we can check in at 7PM at the Main Entrance. If I am already within the park do I need to go back to the entrance for check in?

    Greetings, Gerald!

    I am Groot! —When I asked my favorite Flora Colossus from Planet X, Groot, he confirmed that I was saying, "I'm Aena, and I'm happy to welcome you back to planDisney," correctly!

    I'm ecstatic that the wonderful people of EPCOT, or EPCOT-ers? EPCOT-ians? Citizens of EPCOT, or whatever we call ourselves, will get to explore the Wonders of Xander as we find adventure around the event Disney After Hours at EPCOT! Of course, we may discover a reverse-launch coaster along the way, but we'll get to that in a minute!

    For now, let's discuss Disney After Hours at EPCOT! It allows you access to EPCOT after it closes, and I can't think of a better way to spend my time!

    Gerald, the official hours are from 10:00 PM to 1:00 AM; however, you can head to the Main Entrance of EPCOT at 7:00 PM to check in for the event. Although you'll already be inside the theme park, you will still need to check in at the front entrance for the event. This way, you'll be able to get your wristband and pick up an After Hours flyer because it serves as your guide for the night and shows you available attractions, complimentary snack locations, and more! 

    During the event, you'll be able to experience some of your favorite attractions (subject to availability) with lower wait times. I hope Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind is one of them because not only does this attraction feature the first-ever reverse launch on a Disney coaster, but it's also my very favorite ride! The extraterrestrial escapade is so much fun, and I'm excited about which popular tune you'll experience during your high-speed quest.

    I am Groot!—Translation: Wishing you an enchanting visit, Gerald!
