EPCOT reopening
Posted: Wednesday July 15, 2020 5:07pm ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

EPCOT is officially open to guests following almost four months of closure due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Safety protocols are in place as we have seen at the Magic Kingdom and elsewhere, with temperature screenings, mandatory masks, social distancing and hugely reduced attendance.

Cast Members welcomed guests to the park, with today also being the first day of the "Taste of EPCOT International Food and Wine Festival."

We took a midday walk around the entire park to show you what things look like with reduced capacity and you can take a trip with us - all compressed into 5 minutes.

According to The Unscrupulous Site, the water pad by Mission:Space is reopened. Another step closer...

As always, it’s best to be traveling the world mid afternoon. The FW E-tickets are great to catch at night, besides TT is so much better at night.

Even better news, we are staying at Boardwalk so it will be easy to go over there

That is good to know they aren't an hour long. Thank you

Doesn't seem out of ordinary, 60 minutes for Soarin and 70 for Test Track seems about right. Check out the Touring Plans app though for the actual wait times. Soarin is actually 42 minutes and Test Track 41 minutes.

Those are pretty typical wait times at 2PM since re-opening.

Anyone know why the waits seem to be so high today? We picked a Monday to go in a couple weeks and the wait times for the big rides has me a bit worried

Won't be the same without the French servers. I hope they are able to return by next summer.

Just take into account the now reduced menu.

So Im guessing this will just be operating with regular extra cast as servers till next year or whenever French cast can return?
