    We would like to rope drop Remy’s Ratitouille Adventure, and believe the easiest way to do that is by entering through the international gateway. We are staying at OKW. How do we get to that entrance for early park opening?

    Bonjour, Megan! Welcome back to planDisney and thanks for stopping by with such a great planning question!

    Megan, you are someone after my own Disney planning heart. I am a rope-drop girl! Rope-dropping the theme parks and taking advantage of Early Theme Park Entry for Disney Resort Hotel Guests are the best ways to experience your must-do, popular attractions, such as Remy's Ratatouille Adventure, with little to no wait. Spending less time in line and more time soaking in the magic is definitely the way to go, so let's chat about getting you there!

    To get to the International Gateway entrance to EPCOT from Disney's Old Key West Resort using the complimentary Disney transportation, I recommend taking a bus from your Resort to Disney's Hollywood Studios and then hopping the Disney Skyliner from Hollywood Studios to EPCOT. The Skyliner will drop you off right at the International Gateway. Let the magic begin!

    Since the current park hours for your vacation show that Hollywood Studios opens 30 minutes before EPCOT, this plan should work perfectly! Just be sure to give yourself plenty of travel time in the morning. I recommend leaving your Resort at least one hour before you want to arrive at EPCOT. The Skyliner is a mode of transportation, but to me, it's also an attraction! Enjoy your first attraction of the day, Megan!

    I hope this helps, Megan, and I hope you have the most magical spring adventure at The Most Magical Place on Earth. Please feel free to stop by any time with any questions you may have along the way. You've got a friend in me!

    Chase the wind and touch the sky,
