Epcot had a wild weekend, with quite a large chunk of Future World going behind walls so that the big redesign of the central area of the park can kick in to high gear. And though we're still waiting on a timeframe for the closure of Spaceship Earth ( the last big piece of the Future World reimagining) to be announced in the meantime Disney has made some interesting changes at Epcot that will take effect very soon. If you're planning on visiting in the park in the near future, here's everything you need to know

1. Hours cut at several attractions

Though hours are being extended like crazy at Disney's Hollywood Studios, Disney's Animal Kingdom and the Magic Kingdom, it looks like things are tapering down at Epcot, as hours are being reduced at several attractions, the majority of which are in the World Showcase:

  • All Kidcot locations will close at 8:00 PM, an hour before closing
  • The final show for The American Adventure will now take place at 8:15 PM
  • Awesome Planet will have its final show of the day an hour before closing at 8:00 PM
  • Beauty and the Beast Sing-Along will now have its final show at 6:00 PM, with Impressions de France now taking over from 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM
  • Canada Far and Wide will now have its last show at 8:00 PM
  • Reflections of China will have its last show at 8:10 PM

2. Attraction availability reduced during Extra Magic Hours
