    Can we park at EPCOT and walk through the park for a breakfast reservation at Ale & Compass before the park opens?

    Hi Robin!

    I'm glad to hear you are planning on enjoying Disney's BoardWalk because it has so many amazing restaurants and recreational experiences to enjoy. One of the great things about Disney's BoardWalk is its convenient location, making it easy to visit during your trip. Disney's BoardWalk is connected to Epcot's International Gateway entrance, which is located a the back of the theme park and accessible via World Showcase. So if you are enjoying Epcot, you can exit at International Gateway to get to Disney's BoardWalk. However, if Epcot is not open, you will not be able to walk through Epcot to exit at International Gateway for your breakfast reservation at Ale & Compass Restaurant.

    Since you have a reservation at Ale & Compass Restaurant, you can enjoy complimentary self-parking at Disney's Yacht Club Resort for your reservation. Keep in mind, however, that if you would like to visit the theme parks after your reservation, you would need to move your vehicle to a theme park parking lot for the rest of your day.

    Since Disney's BoardWalk connects to the front entrance of Disney's Hollywood Studios, that is another option to park your vehicle. If you park at Disney's Hollywood Studios for the day, you can take a boat to Disney's Yacht Club Resort or walk along the lake to get to Disney's BoardWalk for your breakfast reservation.
