    Is the entrance and exit at EPCOT in world showcase open (or closed due to COVID)? If staying at Yacht Club I want to be sure we have full access. World showcase has different hours than EPCOT. Which hours does that entrance follow?

    It's so good to see you back here at planDisney, Karen! 

    Karen, while I haven't had the privilege of staying at Disney's Yacht Club Resort, it is on my wish list. In addition to the amazing pools, I love the idea of having quick and easy access to the World Showcase at EPCOT, one of my favorite places to visit, especially during one of the fabulous festivals. 

    The International Gateway entrance to EPCOT is currently open. While park hours for the World Showcase sometimes differ from that of the rest of EPCOT, the International Gateway will open at the same time as the front entrance of EPCOT, to allow for arrivals from the nearby resorts and the Disney Skyliner. Karen, did you know that even before the World Showcase is open, Les Halles Boulangerie-Patisserie, the bakery located in the France Pavilion, is open for breakfast? This is a great, uncrowded spot to grab a flaky croissant or delectable pastry before heading to the front of the park. 

    I hope that this helped you make your resort decision, Karen. Please come back here if we can help answer any other questions about where to eat, play, or stay during your fabulous Walt Disney World Resort vacation. 

    See you real soon!
