Epcot opens park to adults after hours

By Julianne Cassidy. CREATED Apr 16, 2014

Walt Disney World in Orlando, Fla., is undeniably a child's paradise, however, sister park Epcot is actually catering to the adults with its new program, "After Hours Wind Down." Epcot will remain open until 11 p.m. exclusively for adults who purchase the $35 ticket.

"Welcome the evening with a serving of cultural fare—prepared with flair and perfectly paired," details the brand-new program's website. Each adult ticket grants one alcoholic drink and "light snacks" with four "exclusive lounges" to choose from: La Caba del Tequila ("Mexico"), Rose & Crown Pub & Dining Room ("United Kingdom"), Spice Road Table ("Morocco") and Tutto Gusto Wine Cellar ("Italy").

Epcot normally closes its gates at 9 p.m. post-fireworks.

"After Hours Wind Down" is available through September 15. Reservations are being accepted up to 180 days in advance on the program's website.

Guests who wish to participate in the after-hours program must also purchase a standard Epcot daily admission ticket.
