Being at Epcot for rope drop is important if you want to beat the crowds and go on popular rides like Test Track, Soarin', or Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure with little to no wait. The following tips will help you make the most of Rope Drop at Epcot. Note that Disney occasionally tinkers with its opening procedures, so the information here is subject to change.

World Celebration, World Discovery, World Nature, and World Showcase typically open at 11 a.m. and close at 10 p.m. On-site guests who want to take advantage of Early Theme Park Entry should arrive at EPCOT 60 minutes before official opening (that is, 30 minutes before Early Entry) on all days. Off-site guests, who aren’t eligible for Early Theme Park Entry, should arrive 30 minutes before official opening on all days.

Which EPCOT entrance should you use? The International Gateway is about 10 minutes closer to the family-friendly Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure, in World Showcase’s France Pavilion, than the main park entrance, and that’s a huge head start. But if the rat ride isn’t a priority, then enter at through the main entrance instead for easier access to Soarin’ Around the World, Test Track, and Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind (when it opens).
