Disney Issues New Warning for Guests Staying at EPCOT Resorts

Disney Issues New Warning for Guests Staying at EPCOT Resorts

For a stress-free Disney or Universal Studios vacation, let the FREE expert planners at Royal Carriage Vacations take care of every detail including dining reservations, applying discounts, and onboard cruise credit.

When you stay at a Disney Resort, you expect top notch Disney-style service and care. And you certainly don’t think about losing sleep while staying at the more expensive EPCOT resorts. However, that may happen soon. Take a look at Disney’s warning now…

EPCOT Resort Perks

Resorts on or near Crescent Lake are some of the most popular places to stay. These include: Beach ClubYacht Club, BoardwalkSwan, Swan Reserve, and Dolphin. Each of these resorts is uniquely themed and gives guests impressive perks. I (Susan) love staying at any of these resorts during my Disney World vacation. Take a look at more details on why these are the best resorts HERE.

First, guests can take a short walk to EPCOT. And you can take a little longer walk to Hollywood Studios or take a leisure boat ride to either park. Exiting the park at International Gateway and walking back after a long day in the park is amazing! No fighting crowds for the buses or monorail!

In addition, you’ll find wonderful entertainment at Disney’s Boardwalk Resort, including the popular dueling piano bar, Jellyrolls!

New Warning

Guests staying at select Disney resorts this week may be awakened late at night and/or early in the morning! Disney announced that EPCOT fireworks testing will take place on November 1 and 4 from 10:30pm until 1:00am.

Disney warns that since pyrotechnics and special effects will be tested, expect the noise level to be quite loud during these times.

In addition to affecting the EPCOT Resorts, Disney states that it may also impact the Caribbean Resort, Port Orleans Resorts (Riverside and Port Orleans), and Old Key West!

Disney didn’t confirm that this testing if for EPCOT’s new fireworks show, Luminous. But, it only makes sense that’s what it’s for since this show debuts on December 5.

What Makes this Even Worse

While it may be difficult for guests anytime during the year when fireworks testing takes place late at night, this weekend makes it even more challenging for some guests.

It may be bad timing because runDisney’s Food and Wine Half-Marathon events also happens this weekend. And that means runners get up REALLY EARLY!

Are you excited about EPCOT’s new firework show? Do you think this testing was poorly timed or do you want to stay up for a chance at seeing part of the testing? Please let us know in the comments and share this post with a friend.
