Epcot after 4 passes will allow slightly earlier entry now that park hours have been further reduced. Read on for details.

Some Florida Residents have an Epcot only annual pass that allows entry to Epcot after 4 p.m. Disney confirmed that the passes will allow earlier entry to Epcot now that hours have been reduced.

You may have seen that starting after Labor Day, hours at all four parks have been further reduced. All four Walt Disney World Parks will close by 7 p.m. starting on September 8.

In order to allow the guests with this specific annual pass type more time to utilize their passes, Disney will allow entry at 2 p.m. for the time being according to the Orlando Sentinel.

The change to this pass type is temporary in order to offset the reduction in hours.

Guests with this pass type enjoy dinner at Epcot or experiencing the Epcot festivals, such as the Taste of Epcot International Food and Wine Festival, which is going on now.
