    I read that the Patisserie QSR in France opens at 9 am. If I am staying at the Beach Club may I enter through the International Gateway to enjoy breakfast there? Thank you for your help.

    Hello Gail! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    When my family stayed at Disney's Beach Club Resort, one of my favorite experiences was waking up early and dining at Les Halles Boulangerie-Patisserie in Epcot. The crowds are light, the atmosphere is serene and by entering through the International Gateway, you feel like everything about the experience has been designed just for you.

    For Guests at Disney's Yacht & Beach Club Resort, Disney's Boardwalk Inn and the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Hotels, the International gateway is the closest entrance and sole drop off location for Complimentary Resort Transportation to Epcot. As such, International Gateway opens at the same time as the Main Gates. This includes mornings when Epcot has Extra Magic Hours for Guests staying at Walt Disney World Resort Hotels.

    I prefer entering through the International Gateway more than the front gates. They are seldom crowded and provide a unique perspective for frequent visitors to Epcot.

    While staying at Disney's Beach Club, be sure to visit Disney's Boardwalk Promenade to experience exquisite dining and exciting entertainment including the new Bon Voyage Adventure Breakfast at Trattoria al Forno Restaurant with Rapunzel, Flynn Rider, Ariel and Prince Eric.

    Bon Appétit!
