    If I ride Disney Skyliner to Epcot, how do we get to the front entrance to enter the park since it drops you off on the back side near France?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Roger! Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your vacation planning to the Walt Disney World Resort! We are so glad you have come to see us!

    The Disney Skyliner station at Epcot is right next to the International Gateway entrance in the back of the park where you will find tapstiles and bag check tables just like at the front. You will not need to go to the front of the park to officially be admitted into the park because you will have already done that! 

    This back entrance is normally used by guests staying at resorts within walking distance such as Disney's Yacht Club Resort, Disney's Beach Club Resort, Disney's BoardWalk Inn, and others. I believe not many people know about this entrance, especially those not staying at these resorts, which makes the International Gateway entrance a Disney hidden gem! Since not a lot of people know about it, it is not normally crowded and lines at both the security area and the tapstiles are significantly shorter than at the front entrance. There is a ticket booth as well as a Guest Relations booth located there so all issues can easily be taken care of as they would at the main park entrance. 

    I hope this information is helpful, Roger. Please let us know if we can do anything else to help as you make your plans.

    See ya real soon!
