    We have dinner reservations at 7:30 beaches and cream. 1. Can we walk from epcot and 2. How do we get back to our hotel if we walked from epcot? Will epcot be closed?

    Hello and welcome to planDisney, Amy! We are thrilled to answer your first question and help you plan a magical Disney vacation!

    Beaches & Cream Soda Shop is one of my oldest daughter’s favorite dining destinations at the Walt Disney World Resort. What I love about their menu is that there are so many great options to choose from! I especially like the Reuben Sandwich and the French Dip Sandwich. My girls are crazy about the shakes and floats.

    If you are visiting EPCOT on your reservation date, you are welcome to walk from the park to Disney’s Beach Club Resort, where the restaurant is located. Exit EPCOT through the International Gateway between the United Kingdom and the France pavilions in the World Showcase. You can also take a water taxi from the park to the hotel. The walk to the restaurant is beautiful and takes about 10 to 15 minutes. Still, I recommend leaving EPCOT about 30 minutes in advance since Guests are advised to arrive approximately 15 minutes before their reservation time.

    Please note that Disney complimentary transportation is offered up to one hour after theme park closing time, so depending on what time EPCOT closes and how long you stay at the restaurant, you should be fine. I recommend planning accordingly because you will need to return to EPCOT and walk all the way to park entrance if you are using bus transportation or taking the monorail. Another option is taking a boat from Disney’s Beach Club Resort to Disney’s Hollywood Studios and taking a bus back to your Disney Resort hotel.

    I hope this information is helpful, Amy. Come back to visit us if you have additional questions, we are delighted to help!

    Best magical wishes,
