    Can I park at an resort in the morning for a dinner reservation later that evening? For example park at 9am at Yacht Club to visit Epcot and return for dinner that night?

    Hello, Laura!  Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    What a great question!  You are only given access to park at a Disney Resort for the duration of your dining reservation. Unfortunately, you cannot park at a resort in the morning for a dinner reservation later on that evening.  It looks like you will be spending the day at Epcot, so gaining access to Disney's Yacht Club Resort is very easy as you can simply stroll through Epcot's International Gateway, located at the back of Epcot, and walk to the resort.  The walk is not very long at all.  After dinner, simply head on back to Epcot.

    Diane's Tip of the Day:  After a day at Epcot, you will have become a "World Traveler" indeed!  Make sure to stop by the World Traveler shop as you make your way to your dining reservation.  They have many great Disney merchandise options to choose from. 

    Have a MAGICAL day and "SEE YOU REAL SOON!"
