    If I am staying at the Boardwalk and want to go to Epcot before World Showcase opens, can I still use the International Gateway entrance? Does it open the same time as the front entrance to the park?

    Hey, Kelly!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. We loved Disney's BoardWalk Inn and had a blast transporting ourselves to early 1900's Atlantic City. The Keister Coaster clown slide is 200-ft of awesomeness!

    Guests may enter Epcot at the International Gateway when the park opens and head straight to attractions. You will walk past the United Kingdom and Canada Pavilions on your way to Future World. The World Showcase activities, attractions, shops and restaurants open daily at 11:00 a.m. but you may walk the World Showcase and take some fantastic pictures.

    Disney Dad Tip: If you have not experienced the nightlife along Disney's BoardWalk then you must take a night to explore and see the Boardwalk Buskers. The magicians and other Atlantic City carney-style acts like jugglers are sure to make your night.

    Kelly, enjoy making many Magical Memories!
