4. Determine if you want to see Illuminations or not early on in the day
Illuminations is the nighttime show at Epcot that takes place right at park close. While the show is beautiful, that time could be used to hit up one more attraction before you exit the park. Frozen Ever After, the newest ride at Epcot, has a long line throughout most of the day, but if you hit it right when the park is closing, your wait time will be considerably less. If you don’t mind missing the fireworks, try squeezing in a ride. Or, try getting in line an hour before park close so you can still see the fireworks.
