    Hello. My family and I are staying at the POR from 4/16-4/23. We have an ADR for the character breakfast @ the cape may cafe. It's for before Epcot opens. Can we drive our car to the Beach club and after breakfast just walk to Epcot and come back later?

    Hi, Cara!  When you drive your car over to the Beach Club for your breakfast, you will first have to go through the parking lot security guard.  At that station, you will have to tell him you are there for breakfast, and the guard will give you a parking pass good for a three hour visit at the resort.

    If you are only going into EPCOT for a very short period of time, I would say you are probably fine, as long as you can return inside that three hour window.  There are security patrols in the parking lot, so you probably wouldn't want to leave your vehicle much over the three hour time frame.

    The parking lots at Walt Disney World resorts are not as large at you can imagine the theme park lots are, and are mostly meant to accommodate resort guests, with some spots for guests who are visiting a resort for dining or some shopping.  Because the spaces are limited, other guests hoping to enjoy their dining experience would appreciate guests who stick to the three hour limit!

    I hope you have a wonderful vacation!
