    Could you watch Fantasmic! at HS then walk/boat to the International Gateway at Epcot for late night Extra Magic Hours? Or can you only access Future World at the main entrance? Thanks!

    Hi Lindsay!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! It sounds like you already have a great plan in place. Epcot’s International Gateway is open for Resort Guests who wish to enjoy Evening Extra Magic Hours at Epcot. While the majority of the attractions available are in the Future World area, there are a few select attractions also open in World Showcase, such as The American Adventure, so be sure to check out all that is available so you can make the most of your evening.

    On our visit last summer, we had a debate on whether the boat or walking would be the faster option from Epcot to Disney’s BoardWalk. Because everything is more fun if you make it a contest, I have some actual Mom Panel tested results for you! If the boat is at the dock, or pulling into the dock, and the line is short enough that you should make it onboard the boat, this is the fastest option. However, if when exiting Disney’s Hollywood Studios, you do not see a boat, one has just left, or the queue is long, the walk will be the quickest route!

    Wishing you a lovely evening in Epcot, Lindsay. Please let us know what other questions we can help you with as you plan your visit!
