    How far in feet is the International Gateway Entrance to the Germany pavilion? Also, how far is the Main Entrance of Epcot to the Germany pavilion in feet?


    Thanks for your question to planDisney!

    What a great question! In a world filled with people counting their steps, the distances we cover are more on our minds than they ever used to be. When I first heard that the walk around the EPCOT World Showcase lagoon was over a mile long, it really made me rethink the amount of ground I was covering on a typical Walt Disney World vacation day.

    Here are the distances of each walk that you outlined here. Write me back if you need any others.  

    • International Gateway to the Germany pavilion: 2,700 feet, or around a 1/2 mile
    • Germany pavilion to the EPCOT main entrance: 3,600 feet, or about 7/10 of a mile
    In the second case, I take you around the east side of the World Showcase lagoon by China, Norway, and Mexico, not by the International Gateway. This is a shorter route to the front gates of the park. There are still some construction detours around Spaceship Earth that change regularly, possibly making the distance a bit longer. But this is a pretty good estimate. 

    If your plans allow it, try one of the amazing caramel apples at the Karamell-Küche store in the Germany pavilion. They are fantastic! Also, if you don't have dinner plans, I would recommend the Biergarten Restaurant. My family loves it there, especially for the décor that places you in a nighttime festival in German village square, complete with an entertaining band.

    Write me back if you have any other questions.

    Have a Magical Vacation!
