    Since this is taking place during Flower and Garden, just wondering if any of the food kiosks, drinks vendors, World Showcase shops etc. will be open for this after hours? Or will most of this be closed down at 9pm, like they do for Evening EMH and it will just be rides open....

    Last year, only Frozen Ever After and the Mexico boat ride were open in the World Showcase for MM. Most of the event takes place in Future World.

    We have never been to a MM event. We will be there for the Epcot one, what happens, is it worth it to try to get tickets? Sorry to Hijack your thread.

    Not a lot in the way of rides, really, so lines tended to be on the longer side for the more popular ones. DJ was cool. Food voucher was welcome.

    As was pointed out, except for boat in Mexico and Frozen ever after, World showcase is closed.

    I personally wouldn't do MM at EPCOT again. For me it was a one and done.

    I am also wondering this. If it's early enough it would be nice to enjoy the flowers etc. We won't have Disney tickets this trip so hoping we get in to see the festival things.

    For the DHS event this year, you could enter as early as 7pm using just the MM event wristband. I would suspect the Epcot event would have a similar entry time as the actual event start times will probably be the same (9:30pm).

    So.... sounds like it's a no-go on getting a beer or wine after 9pm??
    Wonder if La Cava del Tequila would still be open....?

    Letting people in at 5pm is great. Having 4 hours to walk around world showcase and do things before park closing is more than enough time before the event actually starts.

    Electric Umbrella and Sunshine Seasons sell beer/ wine so that might be a possibility. I don't think anything in the World Showcase is open except for FEA and the boat ride in Mexico and it's just the rides, not anything else in the pavilion.

    We won't know where the meal vouchers are accepted until we get there (last year I think it was those two plus a few others in the showcase that closed at 9 but I wasn't there so I'm working from scraps with that info).

    I was mainly saying that if you wanted beer/ wine after the world showcase closes, you'd have the option of getting it at Sunshine Seasons or Electric Umbrella.

    Is the dessert station open at Sunshine Seasons from 9:30 PM-12:30 AM. If so, can the side order with the meal voucher be used for a dessert?
