    If we are planing to drive our own vehicle and enter through international gate at Epcot, where do you suggest we park?

    Hiya Gabrielle,

    Welcome to planDisney! With less than two days before your arrival to the Most Magical Place on Earth, I’m sure you are very excited. I am a little jealous you are on your way to EPCOT; EPCOT’s International Flower and Garden Festival is one of my favorite festivals and is in full bloom right now! The stunning topiaries always amaze and astonish, and the food is always so fresh. In short, it is simply the best!

    As someone who drives their own vehicle to Walt Disney World Resort frequently, I wish there was a parking lot near International Gateway for EPCOT (I love starting my day in the France Pavillion). Unfortunately, no designated parking lot exists for non-resort Guests wanting to enter EPCOT through International Gateway. The main parking lot for EPCOT is on the other side of the Theme Park near the front entrance. When park hopping, many Guests park at Disney’s Hollywood Studios first and then take the Disney Skyliner (or walk the 15-25 minutes) between the two parks. I’ve done it before, and it is the only way to get to International Gateway if you are not staying onsite at one of the EPCOT area resort hotels. This may be a strategy that you can also leverage for your trip!

    I hope this was helpful, Gabrielle! Please come back and see us if you need anything else.

    Happy Planning,

    Ashley F.
