    I'm dining Beaches & Cream at 9.50pm with my car parked at EPCOT (open till 11pm). I do not think I will have eaten at Beaches and Cream and be able to have gotten back to the International Gateway by park closing. Any suggestions on what to do?

    Hi Michelle!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    With Beaches & Cream Soda Shop just a short walk from the International Gateway of Epcot's World Showcase (located between the United Kingdom and France pavilions) this is the ideal place to enjoy dinner, after a day at the park. I wonder if you might be saving a little bit of room for the legendary Kitchen Sink?  With Epcot closing at 11.00pm, and time being tight, this is what I would do: I would move my car from the Epcot parking lot to park at Disney's Beach Club Resort.  Complimentary standard self-parking is available for Guests visiting Disney Resort Hotels to enjoy dining, usually for up to three hours, and this would take away any worry of not making it back to the Epcot parking lot in time to collect your car.

    Remember the important dates for your holiday planning - dining reservations can be made up to 180 days in advance, either online, or by using My Disney Experience mobile app, and FastPass+ reservations can be made up to 60 days in advance for Disney Resort hotel guests, also by using My Disney Experience.  For all the up-to-date news and details about any events that may be happening during your stay, keep your eye on the Disney Parks Blog.

    Please come back and visit us if you have any further questions.  We will be happy to help you plan your magical holiday to Walt Disney World.
