EPCOT recently adjusted park hours to a much earlier opening time for mornings at the park for at least the next two weeks. The park had been opening at 10 AM (or later) since the reopening of the Walt Disney World Resort in 2020, and now for the first time since prior to the pandemic, the park will begin opening at 8:30 AM.
Earlier began today, February 28, 2022, and currently run through March 19, 2022, according to the calendar on the My Disney Experience app. after March 19 are scheduled with 10 AM start time, however, it is possible the earlier hours will be extended, especially with the opening of the new Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind this May.
With an 8:30 start time, staying at hotels will be able to enter EPCOT even sooner as the time at this for begins a half- earlier than opening for day .

And heading into March, many colleges around the country will be on while the & kicks off on March 2, 2022.
Park hours for the next couple of weeks have not changed for the other theme parks at Walt Disney World, however, if crowds continue to increase it is possible that we will see expanded park hours similarly to how they changed throughout February.
