    Hi! I have reserved Cape May Cafe for my daughter's birthday. We would like to enter Epcot and then go to the Cape May Cafe, can we go to and from the International Gate?

    Hiya, Takuma!

    Thanks for bringing your question to planDisney.  There's nothing I love more than celebrating a birthday at Walt Disney World Resort (although come to think of it, I love celebrating UN-birthdays, too!) –– how exciting that you'll be getting the party started with your family in less than two weeks! If you ask me, you couldn't have picked a better place to celebrate with your daughter than Cape May Cafe.  Not only will you have tons of food to choose from on the buffet, but the restaurant's spacious dining room and beachy feel make it the perfect place to relax and enjoy a birthday meal with the whole family!

    One of my favorite things about staying at Disney's Beach Club Resort is that I can walk right into EPCOT from the International Gateway, so I'm happy to report that you and your family are welcome to enter and exit the park from this entrance, as well.  Since you won't have to factor in additional transportation time, that means you'll be able to enjoy as much time as possible in the park before heading over for your reservation.  Just be sure that you've made theme park reservations for EPCOT that day, using the Disney Park Pass reservation system, if that's the first or only park you plan to visit.  If you're planning on visiting another park before EPCOT, remember that you won't be able to park hop until 2 PM.

    To make your daughter's day extra special, I also suggest stopping by the Guest Relations on your way through the International Gateway to pick up a complimentary birthday celebration button.  Not only will this button make a great souvenir of her special day, it's also likely to inspire a spontaneous chorus of "Happy Birthday!" wherever she goes!

    I'm so glad you stopped by planDisney, Takuma.  I hope your daughter has the happiest of birthdays and I'm wishing your family a Walt Disney World Resort vacation that's filled with pixie dust from beginning to end!

    See Ya Real Soon,
