    I have breakfast reservations at 7:50am at Trattoria al Forno and then are heading to Epcot after.We are staying off site and am wondering what the best option for parking is?I would like to walk to Epcot after breakfast thru International Gateway.

    Hi Erin!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Trattoria al Forno is a great choice for breakfast, not least because of the location.  Disney's BoardWalk is a lovely place to spend some time first thing in the morning.  Also, at your Bon Voyage Adventure Breakfast you'll have the chance to enjoy the company of some Disney friends - Ariel, Prince Eric, Rapunzel and Flynn Rider.  You may park at Disney's BoardWalk for your breakfast - parking will be complimentary for any dining reservations, typically for up to 3 hours.  This means that you cannot leave your car there while you spend the day at EPCOT.  What I would do is drive around to the EPCOT parking lot, after your breakfast, where you can park your car for the whole day while you spend your day at the theme park.  You will have to enter the park by the main entrance, and then walk through Future World to make your way to World Showcase, which usually opens at 11.00am.  Please note that there is a daily charge at any of the parking lots at the theme parks (with the exception of the Disney water parks). 

    If you were only intending to spend a very short amount of time in World Showcase you could leave your car at Disney's BoardWalk because it is an easy walk to the International Gateway entrance, but please remember that 3-hour time limit for complimentary parking.

    Please come back and visit us again if you have any further questions. We will be happy to help you plan your magical vacation to Walt Disney World Resort.
