    Can we get dropped off at Disney Beach Club Resort to walk to International Gateway if we are not staying at Disney Beach Club Resort?

    Hi Melanie,

    Ahh the International Gateway. This magical stretch has my whole heart in the way that only Walt Disney World Resort walkways possibly could. It's just so full of memories for me. Since our little family of four includes two kiddos a mere 13-months apart, my husband and I were more like "Chaos coordinators" than parents for a while. We used to love to set our little ones free to run up (and then down) the bridge as we made our way to this special entrance to EPCOT from our Resort hotel.

    Then, after a long Disney day, when our toddlers were all toddled-out, they would fall right asleep in our double stroller as we walked "Home" to Disney's Beach Club Resort after the beautiful nighttime spectacular, IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth. (I am dating myself. Those toddlers are a teen and tween now.) I loved this time! 

    The parking lot for Disney's Beach Club Resort is reserved for Guests of this beautiful Resort hotel or its Dining locations. That does mean that rideshare service drivers are also unable to complete a drop-off for a Guest without a reservation. 

    Hakuna Matata (it means no worries) Melanie. Why not snag an Advance Dining Reservation for a delicious treat at Beaches & Cream Soda Shop before your day exploring EPCOT? Who doesn't need a little sugar before a big day of adventure? Then, your rideshare driver would simply give the Cast Member at the gate your name and let them know that you are arriving for your plan. Go enjoy your meal and a scoop, and then walk it off with a journey over that magical bridge and into World Showcase. 

    Come on back and visit us with any other questions you might have, Melanie! We are here for you. 

    Adventure is out there,
