    We are staying at the Beach Club in June 2017 and have booked the Keys to Kingdom tour starting in Epcot at 9am. Will we be able to enter via the International Gateway or should we take a taxi to the front of Epcot for the tour meet up?

    Hi Sara,

    One of the many things I love about the Beach Club resort is its proximity to the International Gateway entrance to Epcot. That entrance is open any time Epcot is open and is available for access to early breakfasts or other activities in the park.

    You mention that you have booked the Keys to the Kingdom tour. You might want to double-check your reservation. There are a couple of tours at Epcot, but Keys to the Kingdom is a five-hour tour at Magic Kingdom that takes you backstage and beneath the park. I want to be sure you are headed to the right place.

    The comparable behind-the-scenes tour at Epcot is World Showcase: DestiNations. It also is five hours long and includes lunch. It's an awesome tour, especially for fans of the World Showcase. Epcot also offers a four-hour tour of the UnDISCOVERed Future World.

    You can find a complete list of tours throughout Walt Disney World here.

    Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Sara. Please let us know if you have any last-minute questions since your vacation is just around the corner. Enjoy!
