    Is the international gateway into Epcot open at same time as the main entrance opens or is it later to match the opening times of world showcase

    Hello, Kerry-Anne,

    Thank you for your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. The International Gateway, or what my children have always called the secret entrance to Epcot, opens at the same time as the main entrance to Epcot.  When you enter there, you will be directed toward Future World since the World Showcase won't be open yet. I must share with that I love this walk early in the morning as there is a beautiful path surrounded by roses that you'll be able to walk through; it is a time that I find it worthwhile to "stop and smell the roses." 

    If you have any further questions, please let us know.  We are happy to help!  -Kara
