Epcot at Dusk

    Emmanuel from NSW Asked Please note that experiences, policies, pricing and other offerings are subject to change and may have changed since the date of this answer.

    I'm planning a breakfast reservation at Akershus. I'll need to enter EPCOT before the park officially opens. Can I still enter through International Gateway? Can I get a Minnie Van to this entrance? If not, can I get one to Beach Club and walk?

    Greetings, Emmanuel, and a warm welcome back to planDisney!

    Emmanuel, I am impressed with the amount of knowledge you are gaining in preparation for your visit to Walt Disney World Resort in time for the 50th Anniversary Celebration, not to mention setting the tone of your new year with magical memories, well done!

    Firstly, your dining experience at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall sounds very exciting, but I would double check that breakfast is offered, because at this time this dining venue is still operating on a phased re-opening experience with a Norwegian-inspired dinner and Storybook Dining featuring the Disney Princesses. Please refer to the official Walt Disney World Resort – Dining Updates continuously, as experiences are subject to change.  

    As far as entering EPCOT’s International Gateway, you are welcome to have your Minnie Van™ service drop you off at any Disney Resorts Collection Hotel in Disney's BoardWalk area and either walk over or catch a Friendship Boat over to EPCOT. Or, you could be dropped off at Disney’s Hollywood Studios to catch the Friendship Boat over to EPCOT, the choice is yours. Why, you may even wish to ride in your Minnie Van™ to a Disney Resorts Collection Hotel that is along the Disney Skyliner route and ride the fun aerial gondola to the drop off station near the International Gateway entrance – what fun choices you have!

    If you plan on picking up a Minnie Van™ at the end of your day at Disney’s Beach Club Resort, I hope you consider stopping by Beaches & Cream Soda Shop for the infamous Kitchen Sink offering 8 delectable scoops of ice cream covered in just about every delicious topping imaginable.

    Emmanuel, we thank you for your continued loyalty, and wish you many exciting planning days as your visit to Walt Disney World Resort draws near.

    Best Disney Dishes & Wishes!
