    Since we are staying at the Broadwalk Inn, I understand we can enter the Park through the World Showcase enterence. If the World Showcase isn't open yet what happens?

    Hi Jean -

    The International Gateway entrance to Epcot (located between the England and France pavilions in the World Showcase) opens at the same time the Epcot's main gate opens. Guests coming from the Epcot resorts area (Boardwalk, Yacht & Beach, and Swan & Dolphin) are welcome to use this entrance any time the park is open.

    If you enter the International Gateway when Future World is open but the World Showcase is not, you will simply be directed to walk past England and Canada into the part of the park that is open.

    If you have a reservation for an early tour or pre-park-opening character breakfast, you can also use the International Gateway, but you will need to have your reservation confirmation number with you.

    Good luck with your planning and enjoy your visit to Walt Disney World.
