    Will we need to take a bus from Yacht Club to Epcot in order to arrive at park open? since world showcase doesn't open until 11am

    Hi Michelle, and thank you for sending us your question about your upcoming trip at Disney's Yacht Club Resort.

    The Disney Resort hotels nestled around Crescent Lake, including Disney's Yacht Club Resort, Disney's Beach Club Resort, Disney's Beach Club Villas, Disney's BoardWalk Inn, and Disney's BoardWalk Villas are some of my favorite places to stay at the Walt Disney World Resort. The idyllic and picturesque setting and conveniences of being located just a short walk or ferry ride to both Epcot and Disney's Hollywood Studios is hard to beat. Indeed, being able to walk along the water to the International Gateway's back entrance to Epcot is one of my favorite things to do when staying at these resorts.

    While World Showcase generally does not open until 11 a.m. each day, the International Gateway is open for Guests to use each morning at regular park opening time. Just prior to park opening, Guests will be allowed to enter the park through the International Gateway and make their way past the United Kingdom and Canada Pavilions and into Future World. As an added bonus, Guests are also able to make a slight detour to the France Pavilion to enjoy a delicious breakfast at Les Halles Boulangerie-Patisserie.

    I hope this helps as you get ready to drop anchor at the Yacht Club!
