    Hi, if im staying off property, can i take an Uber to a hotel in the boardwalk to get in epcot at the international gateway entrance walking? (i have ticket to the park) Or can i arrive in Uber to a hotel with skiliner? Will the security let me in?

    Hi, Eva!  Welcome to planDisney!

    One of my favorite areas in Walt Disney World Resort is Disney's BoardWalk.  This beautiful location is the perfect place to take a leisurely stroll and just soak in the atmosphere.  At Disney's BoardWalk, you'll find lots of great entertainment and dining options, and it's all located just a short walking distance from the International Gateway entrance of EPCOT.

    Parking at Disney Resorts Collection Hotels is reserved for Guests staying at that particular resort hotel or for Guests with confirmed dining reservations while they are enjoying a meal at a resort hotel restaurant.  If you are planning to have a ride-share service drop you off at a resort hotel so that you can walk or ride the Disney Skyliner to EPCOT's International Gateway, it is up to the security guard at the resort hotel's gates as to whether or not this will be permitted.  In my personal experience, I have been able to be dropped off by a ride-share service at several Disney resort hotels.  I have found that most of the security guards are willing to let Guests in if they are just being dropped off and do not need to park, but again, this is at the security guard's discretion.

    Eva, you've chosen a great time to visit EPCOT since the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival is currently taking place.  Be sure to check out the Disney Parks Blog for Five Things You Can't Miss at the 2023 EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival.  I would also recommend looking over the Foodie Guide for this year's festival to make a list of your must-have snacks and sips.

    See ya real soon!
