    Only going to be in the parks 2 days: MK & HS. Looking at the schedule Fantasmic is NOT going to be showing & I'm disappointed. For 2 adults would it be better to skip HS & go to Epcot instead for the day & catch illuminations?

    Hi Elyse!  If you are getting single day park tickets and not park hoppers then I would suggest a day at EPCOT for you.  It is apparent that the Fantasmic fireworks show was important and by going to EPCOT you will be there to see what I consider the best laser and fireworks show on property, Illuminations!

    EPCOT is divided into two sections, Future World and World Showcase.  Most of the rides and attractions are in Future World and that park generally opens at 9:00 a.m. every morning.  Some of Disney's most popular attractions are there such as Soarin and Test Track.  But don't forget to catch such wonderful shows such as Turtle Talk with Crush at the Living Seas pavilion.  Remember to use FAST PASSES when possible for the more popular rides to avoid the longer lines.

    Many people love to play in Future World in the early hours and then head to the World Showcase for a special meal at one of the wonderful restaurants.  Please be sure to make a dining reservation to prevent from being disappointed as they book up quickly.  Call 407-939-3463 as far as 90 days out from your reservation date.

    If you have a park hopper ticket you will be able to do both EPCOT and Hollywood Studios in the same day.  You would have to pick and choose your attractions but you could start off at Hollywood Studios in the morning getting there when it opens.  Enjoy your first hours there and have lunch at one of the great spots.  Then take the water taxi which will take you to the World Showcase entrance, International Gateway.  You can spend some afternoon hours here and have dinner finishing with the Illuminations show.
