    Am I able to use the internation gateway at Epcot if I have a dinning reservation for 830am when the park opens? We are staying at a skyliner resort. It would make sense to go there but I have heard you read you cannot be let in early from that entrance?

    Magical Greetings, Jason! Thank you for reaching out to planDisney with your question!

    I don't know which Disney Resort hotel you are staying at, but I do know that you made a great choice selecting one that is close to Disney Skyliner! Having that quick accessibility to EPCOT and Disney's Hollywood Studios can't be beat! It's so convenient! As a Disney Resort hotel guest, Early Park Entry is another big perk! It's great having a head start to your day at the theme parks before the big crowds arrive. I recently stayed at Disney's Art of Animation Resort, and I was able to enter EPCOT through the International Gateway entrance during Early Park Entry with no issues. A Cast Member will scan your MagicBand+ (or MagicMobile or Room Card) to verify you are a Disney Resort guest to enter EPCOT that early. 

    Your visit is next week, and I hope you are ready for a "bloomin'" time at the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival! Pick up a Festival Passport when you arrive, and have fun dining around the world at the various Outdoor Kitchens! For a fun activity, participate in Garden Graze! Purchase five select dining items, collect a stamp in your Passport, then head over to Pineapple Promenade for a sweet reward! If you have Mouseketeers in tow, be sure to stop by Butterfly Landing (outside The Land Pavilion) and encounter all the beautiful butterflies! Another fun activity for little ones is Spike Bee's Pollen-Nation Exploration Scavenger Hunt!

    I hope all of this information was helpful, Jason! Thank you for visiting planDisney. Reach out again if you have other questions while planning your vacation. You've got a friend in me!

    Magic Awaits!
