Hi all,

I am going with my DD on a trip to WDW for the 50th anniversary, October 3-6 :cool1: .

Question, EPCOT shows the hours are 11-9, but I remember that Future world used to open earlier than World Showcase, is this different now?

TIA

I just posted this question in the "Everything Park Resrevations" thread, but I'll also ask here...

We just made a park rez for Epcot in the 3rd week of August, and it said something like "arrive at the park between 11am to 9pm"

11am? I thought Epcot opens at 9am.... why is it saying this?

Please read above. This question was answered the poste directly above yours.

Epcot has been opening at 11am since Epcot reopened in July 2020.

Ok thanks. Although WDW might not put out a number, does anyone have any guesses as to what percentage they're allowing into the parks?

IE: 40% ? 50% ? 60% ? Any guesses?

My guess would be at least 70-80% if they aren’t back to full capacity. Remember the number they are allowing isn’t necessarily met every or even most days.

    We are here now and will be going to Epcot tomorrow. Hours show 11:00-10:00 but a friend was here last week and the shops in the WS closed at 7:00. They were really disappointed. Was this a fluke or should I plan to do the WS early rather than late?

    The best way to see store hours is to use the filters on MDE app.

    1. First select Epcot using the upside down teardrop at the bottom of the screen
    2. Select 'Epcot'
    3. Use the top, centre filter to select 'shopping'
    4. Click any of the icons to show shopping hours
    I just took a quick look at WS shopping hours for today and every store I selected showed closing at 10pm and I looked at about 4 of them.

    This is great! Thank you!

    I did note while "testing" this, that the Mitsukoshi Story in Japan closes at 7pm. I know this is a popular one.
