    1st time WDW. ADRs at Via Napoli 6:20, arriving Epcot 4:30. DD7 & DS3. Looks to be an very long walk for small children from entrance all the way to Italy just for some Pizza. What are our options for getting around the showcase efficiently w kids?

    Hi, Patrick!

    It is a bit of a walk to Via Napoli from the front entrance of Epcot, but your travels will be worth it.  Via Napoli serves delicious meals!  I love their pizza as well as their amazing chicken parmigiana - yum!  Click HERE for their menu. 

    Your best bet will be to get a double stroller.  Even if your 7 year old does not normally use a stroller, I am guessing she will gladly hop in for the ride!   Once everyone is settled in the stroller, head back toward World Showcase.

    Since you will have plenty of time, when you arrive at the entrance of World Showcase, head to the left for a stop in Mexico.  Your kids will love the Gran Fiesta Tour attraction where you will go in search of Donald Duck on this pleasant boat ride.  Enjoy the beautiful Mexico pavilion, and the kids can even make a KidCot stop where they can do a craft. 

    After visiting Mexico, continue on your journey toward Italy.  After dinner, visit a few more countries the before the start of Illuminations.  Your kids will enjoy all the KidCot stops, and mom and dad will enjoy the beauty of each country. With just a few hours, you really will not be able to enjoy every country, but pick one or two and and have fun exploring!  

    You are in for a very nice evening, I hope you have a great night in Epcot!  Enjoy!
