How early should you get to Epcot?

This gets you to the park and through security–if all goes according to plan–no later than 8:30 a.m. On a related note, if you want to enter Epcot even earlier and experience an almost entirely empty Epcot, check out our Pre-Park Opening Breakfast at Walt Disney World Strategy post.

Does Epcot let you in early?

EPCOT and the Animal Kingdom are allowing guests in 30 minutes early. What attractions are open early is a bit random. All rides have safety checks that they have to clear in the morning. The most popular attractions will be open when guests are allowed into the park if possible.

Do Disney parks open early for resort guests?

Guests staying at Disney-owned resorts and other select resorts will be allowed 30-minute early entry to ANY theme park every day. Guests will have the ability to enter the parks early, no matter what day it is.

How early can you enter Disney parks?

The parks open at between 7:30 AM and 7:45 AM, depending on the park. This makes it a better opportunity to ride attractions continuously. About those attractions, the park is not completely open. Only select rides are available during Early morning magic.

How early should I get to Hollywood studios?

WHAT TIME SHOULD I GET TO HOLLYWOOD STUDIOS? For the shortest waits, arrive 60 minutes before opening if you’re driving or walking. 75 minutes gives you a bit more cushion, and is what we’d personally aim for. Guests have usually been allowed onto Hollywood Studios property around an hour before opening.

Is Disney early morning magic worth it?

On a peak crowd day where day-of FastPasses are not possible and you don’t hold a FastPass for Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Early Morning Magic might be worth it (use discounted Disney gift cards to shave a bit off the cost).

How early are extra magic hours announced?

Evening Extra Magic Hours let Disney hotel guests stay in a park two hours past the regular closing time. Disney World park hours and Extra Magic Hours are released six months in advance – though they are subject to revision.

Does Magic Kingdom let you in early?

Magic Kingdom Morning Touring Strategy. Main Street in Magic Kingdom turnstiles open to all guests at 8 a.m., with pre-park opening breakfast guests being admitted at around 7:45 a.m. (On busier days, Magic Kingdom might open slightly earlier to regular guests, too.)
