    Can you enter and exit through the international Gateway during the Epcot after hours special events?? (10-1AM) And if you can, does the monorail, boats and sky ride still run?

    Hiya Jason! Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question!

    I'm excited you are planning to attend Disney After Hours at EPCOT this summer! These special events allow Guests the opportunity to experience the parks at night and with minimal crowds. You'll be able to ride many more attractions in a shorter period of time once the After Hours event begins!

    I have good news for you, Jason! The International Gateway entrance into EPCOT will be open during this event. In fact, this is one of the perks of staying at an EPCOT area resort. You're only a few steps away from the magic!

    For Disney Transportation options, each mode should be available to use for up to an hour after the park closes. If you exit through the International Gateway, the Friendship Boats and the Disney Skyliner will be waiting to take you back to your resort. If you are trying to get back to the Magic Kingdom area, including the Ticket and Transportation Center, the monorail will be available when you exit the front entrance of the park. Weather can sometimes cause certain modes of transportation to temporarily close. This happens from time to time with the Disney Skyliner. If this is the case, Disney will provide bus service to return back to your Disney Resorts Hotel.

    Jason, did you know that while the party does not officially start until 10 PM, you can enter as early as 7 PM on these nights? This gives you a few extra hours to explore the park and fit in a few more experiences. 

    Have a magical day! See ya real soon!
