    Does the Boardwalk entrance of Epcot open at the same time as the main gate?

    Hi Khryste! Welcome to planDisney!

    You'll love exploring EPCOT in just a few more days! The EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival will still be taking place during your visit and it is my favorite festival. Tasting your way around the world while enjoying the incredible attractions and gorgeous views? Yes, please!

    In my recent stay at Disney's Beach Club Resort, I absolutely adored being steps away from EPCOT via the International Gateway entrance. In my experience, we were allowed in at the same time as the main entrance. We entered first thing on multiple days during that stay and we reached the queue for Test Track a little after the main entrance Guests (they are closer to that attraction), but a little sooner than those Guests for Frozen Ever After.

    Depending on the day, your theme park entrance may be in phases. We were able to get into the theme park early, but then we were held at a certain spot in World Showcase until all Guests were officially let in. I love arriving early to beat the crowds that build throughout the day!

    I hope this helps, Khryste! Please let us know if you have any other questions.
