    Hi Emma!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    It's always nice to see questions from my fellow UK Guests, and I am very excited to see that your holiday is only around two weeks away!!  Firstly, you are going to have a lovely breakfast with Minnie and friends at Cape May Cafe, located at Disney's Beach Club Resort.  The good news is that parking is complimentary if you are visiting any of the Disney Resort hotels for a dining reservation.  You can park in the hotel parking lot for around 3 hours, and you simply advise the Disney Cast Member at the entrance that you are there for a dining reservation.  Please have your dining confirmation number handy in case they ask for it.  

    Disney's Beach Club Resort is within easy walking distance of the International Gateway entrance to Epcot.  This entrance brings you into World Showcase, between the France and United Kingdom pavilions - you can see the exact location on this Epcot Guide Map.  If you are intending to spend some of your day at Epcot, you could park in the Epcot parking lot (located at the front of the park) and walk right through the park to your breakfast reservation, returning to enjoy your day there afterwards.  Two things to consider: there is a daily parking fee at the Walt Disney World Resort theme parks.  This is valid for the whole day, and you will only pay one fee, even if you are visiting more than one theme park during any one day.  Secondly, the parking lots usually open around an hour prior to park opening, so depending on the time of your breakfast, this may not be appropriate for you.  For example, if Epcot does not open until 9.00am, and your dining reservation is for any time up to 9.30am, you may not have enough time to enter the park and walk to Disney's Beach Club Resort.  All park hours can be seen on this calendar.

    Please come back and visit us if you have any further questions. We will be happy to help you plan your magical holiday to Walt Disney World Resort, and keep your eye on the Disney Parks Blog for all the latest official news and any updates on events that may be happening during your stay.
