    We are staying at the Beach Club in October. We have breakfast scheduled for 8 am in Epcot (garden grill). The park opens at 9am. Will we be able to get in through the World gate at that time, or do we have to take a bus to the front of the park.

    Hi Scott!

    The Beach Club Resort is the perfect place to stay during a Walt Disney World vacation when you have plans in Epcot. It is only steps away from the International Gateway entrance making it as easy as possible. My family often stays in one of the three Epcot area resorts and we love the ability to come and go with ease and virtually no lines for entrance and security.

    Many of the Epcot dining locations including the Garden Grill restaurant located in the Land Pavilion will open before the park officially opens. Guests with valid reservations will be allowed in early to start their day with a great dining experience.

    You will not have to worry about going to the front of the park to enter early the day of your reservation. You simply head to the International Gateway entrance where there will be cast members who will have a list of guests with early dining. They will check you off and allow you to enter. It is kind of fun too to be in the park when no one else is there. Be sure and take pictures of your family and send them to friends saying you had the park all to yourselves....some Disney magic!

    Head directly to the Land Pavilion where you will again check in for your breakfast. Enjoy the fun in this special restaurant and then enjoy your day in Epcot!
