    Hello, I made reservations for the Bon Voyage Adventure breakfast at Trattoria al Forno but they are before Epcot opens. I was wondering how to get to the Boardwalk from my resort (Port Orleans) in time for the reservation? Will Epcot let us in early?

    Hello Lauren,
    I can't think of a better way to begin your Disney day other than with a delightful character filled Bon Voyage Adventure Breakfast at Trattoria al Forno! This pretty Italian style restaurant is located along Disney's BoardWalk area which happily means it doesn't require entry into Epcot to gain admission. Guests can reach Disney's BoardWalk via a walkway from Disney's Hollywood Studios or from any of the surrounding Resort hotels - Disney's BoardWalk Inn or Disney's BoardWalk Villas, Disney's Beach Club Resort or Disney's Yacht Club Resort.
    Having said that during Epcot's scheduled opening hours, Guests can indeed walk to Disney's BoardWalk and the Beach and Yacht Club Resorts from Epcot's International Gateway (or backdoor as I like to call it) which is located between the United Kingdom and France Pavilions.
    My top tip for arriving at Trattoria al Forno in time for your Bon Voyage Adventure Breakfast would be to utilise the wonderful Complimentary Resort Transportation by taking a bus or ferry boat from Disney's Port Orleans Resort to Disney Springs and transfer to a bus headed to Disney's BoardWalk Inn or even Beach or Yacht Club Resorts or you could perhaps consider using the somewhat new Minnie Van Service.
    Have a great Disney day.
