Epcot Spaceship Earth

    My family and I are headed to Orlando on the 19th! Was wondering what an average time it would take to get through Epcot in the hope of making plans later in the afternoon?

    Hi Tracey,

    Thank you so much for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. We on the panel love helping guests to plan magical vacations!

    Epcot is my family's favorite theme park. We love the attractions in Future World, such as Soarin', which allows guests to glide over many world sites. We also enjoy World Showcase. We almost always find ourselves at one of the restaurants in World Showcase, such as Chefs de France in the France pavilion, enjoying a leisurely meal. At this time of year, you will also find more at Epcot in the Epcot International Festival of the Holidays, which features international holiday traditions including holiday kitchens where you can sample traditional holiday foods from around the globe.

    I can easily spend a whole day - and even longer - at Epcot. There is much to do in an evening there, including the amazing show IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth. That said, if you want to spend just a morning and afternoon there, you can absolutely do so. In that case, I would recommend making Disney FastPass+ selections for more popular attractions, such as Soarin', so that you can experience them with a shorter wait times. If you make yourself a few Disney FastPass+ selections for the morning, then possibly have lunch in the World Showcase and explore the World Showcase in the afternoon, you could leave by late afternoon or early evening.

    I hope that these thoughts are helpful for you, Tracey! Please do let us know if you have any further questions.
