This park is currently undergoing a major overhaul. As a result, there were a large number of things shut down over the past few years – and this park can easily be covered in a day (even a half day if you’re motivated enough). At some point in the second half of 2018, Toy Story Land will be opening, and then in 2019 Star Wars Land is opening. Expect HUGE crowds in this park after those open.
The nighttime fireworks show is Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular. This is my #1 night show at Walt Disney World (and second only to World of Colour at Disney’s California Adventure in Anaheim). The Star Wars show incorporates fireworks with projections, music, lights and lasers – it’s so cool.
They offer another nighttime show, Fantasmic – which is inside a large amphitheater built for the show. Lots of characters, pyro, lights – it’s worth seeing.
You can catch a boat from just outside the main gate which makes stops at the Swan & Dolphin, Beach Club/Yacht Club, Boardwalk Resort and finally Epcot (in that order).
