    I am planning to stay at the Beach Club and I would like to know if I can walk to Epcot in the morning? I remember that the world showcase part of Epcot opens later and they had it roped off, so can I walk through that area to get to future world/monorail?

    Hi Jeffrey,

    I've stayed at the Beach Club many times and find the access to the International Gateway entrance to Epcot to be a HUGE benefit of staying at this resort.

    The Gateway entrance to Epcot opens at the same time as the main gate at the front of the park. During the time in which Future World is open but the World Showcase is not, generally from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m., guest are simply directed past the UK and Canada pavilions into Future World.

    You can also use the Gateway entrance if you have an early character meal breakfast or tour in the morning prior to park opening. In this case, you'll need to have your reservation confirmation number available for the cast member at the gate.

    Enjoy your stay at Walt Disney World.
