    Where is Parking for International Gateway entrance to Epcot?

    Hi Ilene! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    It looks like your Walt Disney World Resort vacation begins TODAY! You must be thrilled! There is a lot of planning and preparation that goes into a Disney destination vacation, and I know just how great it feels when you arrive and all that planning pays off.

    I'm glad you have plans to visit Epcot during your trip. It is my favorite of the four Walt Disney World Resort theme parks, especially when one of the unique festivals are taking place! The Epcot International Festival of the Holidays is a lot of fun, not only for the tasty treats you can try from around the world, but also for the chance to learn more about how the different nations celebrate the holidays. You will love it!

    To enter Epcot via the International Gateway entrance, you either have to park at Disney's Hollywood Studios and use the Disney Skyliner, a boat, or walkway that connects the two theme parks, or be a Guest at Disney's BoardWalk Inn, Disney's Beach Club Resort, Disney's Yacht Club Resort, Walt Disney World Swan Hotel, or Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel. You must be a Guest staying at one of those resorts in order to park there. If you are planning on visiting Epcot only that day, your best bet will be to use the main Epcot parking area and enter through that entrance instead.

    Enjoy your vacation, Ilene! Please let us know if you have any other questions.
