    Can you use the International Gateway entrance for the Epcot After Hours Event? The event page just lists the Main Entrance for Epcot and we have a dinner reservation on the Boardwalk prior to the After Hours Event.

    Hey there, Matt! Welcome to planDisney and thanks for stopping by with such a great question!

    You sound like someone after my own Disney heart, Matt. One of my favorite things to do on a Walt Disney World Resort vacation is to stroll and dine on Disney's BoardWalk. The dining options are fantastic and the oh-so-fun, lively vibes at night just can't be beaten. I'm also so excited to experience Disney After Hours at EPCOT, and being able to walk right over to the After Hours event from dinner on the BoardWalk sounds like the perfect way to top off the best Disney day.

    I think you will be happy to hear that I just spoke with a helpful Cast Member who informed me that the International Gateway entrance to EPCOT will also be open to enter and exit EPCOT for the After Hours events. In the past, I have entered and exited EPCOT via the International Gateway for an after-hours event for Disney Vacation Club Members, and it was so lovely and convenient to just stroll right into EPCOT from the BoardWalk. Dinner and a short stroll to late-night magic? Yes, please!

    Matt, did you know that even though Disney After Hours at EPCOT runs from 10:00 p.m. to 1:00 a.m. that you can enter EPCOT as early as 7:00 p.m. with just your event ticket? More magic is always better, so enjoy your evening, my friend!

    I hope this was helpful, Matt, and I hope you have the most magical and memorable Disney days (and nights)! Please feel free to stop by any time with any questions you may have along the way.

    Adventure is out there!
