Epcot after hours

So I didn't know if anyone had seen this yet? To me it is a bit pricey.

It's $35 for the extra time, and the drink and munchies are included in the price? Seems reasonable to me, at least by Disney pricing standards. I think we will need to try this come November.

I've wondered around WS an hour after illuminations. I don't see the big attraction. It's $35 for a drink and a snack?

$35 for a drink, snacks, and extra park time I think is pretty reasonable, actually. A drink alone in Epcot can run around $10. If I were going for a short trip I'd totally do it. Plus the food they have listed so far sounds yummy!

This sounds really interesting - might have to book it for our September trip.

Yes, but you also get to zip line across the lagoon right over the inferno barge.

While they do the blow-off? I've got some people I'll pay for. Anyway, Disney lawyers will never allow zip-lining. They can't even bear the risk of Segway tours. wink

I wonder if they will continue the buses and monorail an hour after that closes. Sounds like a money loser to me if they do. And if they don't all except drivers and Epcot resort people are stranded.

Here's an idea. Eat and drink all you want while the park is open and then wander around for free after it closes.

Anyway, I'm all for keeping WS open later. I don't know why it has to close so early.

Remember, if you can dream it, they can charge you for it!

IMO, if they are going to charge an additional $35+tax and gratuity, they need to add more to the package than a few snacks, one drink, and 80-90 minutes extra in the park.
Every time we are at Epcot, we get our last food of the night right before 9pm and eat it during Illuminations. Then we wander around WS, and very slowly make our way out of Epcot. We always stay about an hour after closing.

Yea...I think we will just do the wandering. We will probably already have drink and we have a tendency to eat/snack late anyway. Not sure if it will be worth paying extra for but I would love to hear about it after someone tries it and see what their opinion is. Smile

Yes, and you get to use the underwater passageway between Mexico and UK. . .

Oooh... roasted tourists! I didn't see that on the menu, but I'll have my fork and knife just in case!

I'm looking into trying this out for the upcoming trip. It will be interesting to see how good the food is.

ZapperZ...that is right I forgot about the zipline...that is too funny. laugh And am sure you won't be alone. I think Epcot should charge for that privilege...people standing there with fork and knife in hand. rolling

I agree that it's overpriced. To me, an alcoholic drink and an appetizer sample would cost half or at least 60% of the 35 dollars in most restaurants. I think I'll just stick to saving a bag of caramel corn when I leave Epcot......

I'm going to reserve judgement on whether this thing is overpriced. I want to see both the quantity and the quality of the food being served, and then make the judgement after that.

Furthermore, if this were just your ordinary, typical, standard American food, I probably have very little interest in it and would consider it to be overpriced. But it looks like they are going for the flavors of the different countries where this will be offered, and that in itself is an adventure right up my alley. Some of the items sound as if these are unique creations of traditional flavors with modern, contemporary offerings.

If the food quality is better than what I typically get a the F&W festival, then I'd pay the $35 to try it.

so does anybody know if any of the attractions in any of the countries will be open, that might make the $35 seem a little more tollerable

First ones to do this let us know. Right now I am going to say too pricy for what you get. $35 seems steep for a shot of tequila and some appetizers.

I'm torn about this...I love having an after Epcot drink and think this would be fun, but if it's just one drink and a snack. I can walk over to the Boardwalk and get a drink/snack for less than $35

So I just read on the Food Blog that this event has been extended until November 9th which means it will be available during my October trip yay

Has anyone on here done it? If so what do you think? Do you think its worth the price? And also wondering.. its a long shot but I don't eat meat (seafood is okay), does anyone know if they offer vegetarian options?

Thanks in advance for any tips muchlove
