    Can someone who’s not staying at a Disney Resort, but has a ticket for Epcot visit Disney’s Boardwalk by using the International Gateway access or is it restricted for resort guests only?

    Hello, Tatiana!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! We are delighted to answer your question regarding your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation!

    OK...so are you ready for some MAGICAL news? I am very happy to inform you that guests not staying at a Disney Resort most certainly CAN access Disney's BoardWalk using Epcot's International Gateway! Disney's BoardWalk area is one of the coolest areas at Walt Disney World. There are some great stores for shopping, and the restaurants are incredible! I highly recommend going to Beaches and Cream Soda Shop at Disney's Beach Club Resort and purchasing The Kitchen Sink, which is eight scoops of ice cream with every topping in the soda shop! Another fun activity is to rent Surrey bikes and explore the entire BoardWalk area in style.

    If you have other questions, please let us know! We are here to help in any way!

    Have a MAGICAL day!
