    If I would like to go to Epcot first, then over to Beach club after the park closes for my reservation, is it possible to park at Beach club prior to going to Epcot?

    Hey there, Rochelle! Welcome back to planDisney and thanks for stopping by with another great planning question!

    In just one month, you'll be embarking on your magical adventure at The Most Magical Place on Earth. I know you must be getting so excited, Rochelle! And since you're planning a late-night dinner with the best sweet treats at Beaches & Cream Soda Shop after an enchanting evening at EPCOT, it sounds like your planning is off to the sweetest start! Now, let's chat about your parking options so you can tie up your loose planning ends and start your countdown to the magic!

    Since you have a dining reservation at Beaches & Cream, you will be able to self-park in the parking lot at Disney's Beach Club Resort for up to three hours to enjoy your dining experience and explore the Resort. Unfortunately, unless you're a Beach Club Resort Guest, you won't be able to leave your car in the parking lot while you head to EPCOT. But Hakuna Matata! It means "no worries." I have a couple of suggestions for you!

    One way to get to your car after your dining reservation when EPCOT is already closed is to park at Disney's Hollywood Studios. Then, you can take the Disney Skyliner or boat or walk from Hollywood Studios to EPCOT for food and fun. After you've enjoyed Beaches & Cream, if the Skyliner is still running, you can hop the EPCOT Skyliner to Hollywood Studios or take the 20-minute walk from Beaches & Cream to Hollywood Studios to hop in your car and head home after the BEST. DAY. EVER! 

    If you are staying at a Disney Resort hotel, you might find it easier to take the complimentary transportation from your Resort to EPCOT and then take a Minnie Van via the Lyft app back to your Resort hotel at the end of your sweet night. While this option does cost a fee, I find that it is very reasonable, and it is my new favorite way to get from Resort to Resort ... in polka dot style!

    I hope this helps, Rochelle, and I hope you have the best Disney day, full of pixie dust and ice cream! Please feel free to stop by any time with any questions you may have along the way. We are always here to help, and you've got a friend in me!

    See ya real soon,
