    We have breakfast reservations at the Beach club resort, we plan on going to Epcot after breakfast, are we able to park our car and walk into the International Gateway entrance before 10:00 AM? or what time does the International Gateway entrance open?

    Hey, Jill!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Breakfast at Disney's Beach Club Resort is a fantastic way to start your day. Minnie's Beach Bash Breakfast is delicious and we love that Minnie and her crew are dressed in their best beachwear.

    Yes, you may park your car at Disney's Beach Club Resort for your breakfast at the Cape May Cafe. You will be allowed up to three hours free parking to enjoy your meal but will then need to move your car out of Disney's Beach Club parking lot and over to a theme park parking lot. Dining Guest usually have to show proof of their dining reservation.

    Guests may enter Epcot through The International Gateway when the theme park officially opens. Please check the Epcot web page for theme park hours on the day you plan to attend. 

    Disney Dad Tip: If you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel then ask the concierge the night before your dining reservation what time the early dining bus departs from your Resort hotel. This group of buses carries Guests to dining experiences that begin before the Walt Disney World Bus Service officially starts each day. After you finish your meal just make the 8-minute journey over to the International Gateway without worrying about parking.

    Jill, enjoy making many delicious and Magical Memories at Walt Disney World Resort!
