    During the last week of February we will be staying at the Beach Club. Is it possible to enter Epcot at the World Showcase entrance near the resort and walk thru to get to the monorail. And, if so, what time does that entrance open?

    It is a short, pleasant walk from the Beach Club to Epcot’s International Gateway. First you will pass through Security. Then you will be allowed to enter through the turnstiles at Epcot’s official opening time. Remember this will require a park hopper Magic Your Way ticket as you’ll be hopping from Epcot to Magic Kingdom.

    World Showcase will still be closed so you’ll proceed to Future World and Epcot’s front entrance. Exit Epcot and follow signs to the Monorail. At the Transportation and Ticket Center (TTC), you will need to transfer to the Magic Kingdom Express monorail.

    This strategy will not get you to the Magic Kingdom the fastest but it is a nice walk and a fun ride on the monorail. Taking the bus directly to the Magic Kingdom would be the quickest as you will bypass the TTC.

    We did take the monorails back from Magic Kingdom to Epcot on an evening that we wanted to finish touring in Epcot. Then we walked back to our Beach Club room via the International Gateway. Enjoy your magical stay!
