    Is the World Showcase open during Extra Magic Hours at Epcot?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Elizabeth! How great to hear that your visit to Walt Disney World is just a few weeks away! 
    Extra Magic Hours is one of my favorite benefits of staying in a Disney Resort Hotel. Knowing that I get to visit the Parks an hour prior to other guests or that I get to stay after regular hours at night makes me feel super extra special! 

    The World Showcase IS open during the Evening Extra Magic Hours. Not all restaurants and shops will be open during the Extra Magic Hours; however, the majority of attractions and shows will be available to guests staying inside the magic. In this link you will find a list of all attractions and rides available during Extra Magic Hours (* attractions and shows may change without prior notice) and in this one, you will find the December calendar for you to plan ahead.  

    Elizabeth, I hope to see you again with more questions as you continue to plan your vacations at Walt Disney World! 

    See ya real soon,

Meet the Panelist: Desiree, Peru

Hi! I'm Desiree from Lima, Peru. My family will never ever tire of visiting the Most Magical Place on Earth, even if means traveling almost 3,000 miles to do so! My husband and I love to watch the fireworks with our kids, but the best magic happens when the grandparents come along and we all feel the same age in front of Cinderella Castle! I love giving tips about different types of resorts and traveling with multigenerational groups.
