    For us BCV'rs, can you get to future world via WS on early entry morning? Personally I don't think Epcot is worth going to for early entry, but DH really wants to do this, so we'll give it a shot.

    They do not open World Showcase for the Extra Magic Hour. There are just a few things open for early entry. Here is the list from Deb Willis's site:

    Spaceship Earth
    Test Track
    Universe of Energy
    Mission: SPACE

    I have the same opinion as you. Not worth the extra hour of sleep! Good luck with DH!

    My understanding is that they do let guests walk through World Showcase to get to Future World since World Showcase opens later. I can't imagine this would be any different on early entry days. pirate:

    The world showcase is not open, but the entrance is and you can walk from there to futureworld for the ee rides. I've done it. BTW I love ee at epcot.

    Walking through World Showcase for early entry is kind of nice! Everything may be closed, but for the most part it's vacant of any other guests (except for people entering from the Epcot Resort area) and rather nice to have so much walking space to yourself!

    Shhh, Blondie! To me, this is the best-kept secret in WDW- Entering WS from International Gateway before WS opens, then just sitting on a bench, enjoying the quiet and listening to the music. Next time, I plan to bring my morning coffee from BCV and maybe a book-no maybe I'll people-watch.

    When entering the WS from the International Gateway before the WS is officially open, you will only be allowed to turn left at the top of the hill toward the UK. Once reaching the rose garden path area (the cross over to FW) again you will be directed by CMs to enter FW and not continue on around the showcase.

    Those going to breakfast in Norway will, of course, be allowed through.

    If you want to sit on a bench between the UK and Canada and the crossover, you'll be allowed to do so, but that is the only area in which you will be allowed.

    It is a lovely peaceful time of day! :D
