    Staying at the Contemporary; can I take a Lyft or Minnie to the Beach Club and then walk through the back entrance to World Showcase without dinning reservation? I prefer the back entrance. Thank you

    Hey there Shannon and welcome back to planDisney.  I also love entering EPCOT through the International Gateway because it is always less congested than the main gate and I get to decide whether I want to head to attractions or if I want to eat around the world. Spoiler alert: It's usually eating.

    All Guests are welcome to visit all Disney Resorts Collection Hotels to dine in their counter-service restaurants or shop in their stores without a dining reservation however it is frowned upon to use the Disney Resort Hotel as a pass-through. So yes, you can take the Disney Minnie Van Service Connected by Lyft or another rideshare over to Disney’s Beach Club Resort to shop and dine and then mosey on over to EPCOT.

    planDisney Pro Tip: Keep an eye out for information on the dates for the EPCOT International Festival of the Arts. The Disney Parks Blog is my primary source of new news on all things Disney.

    Shannon, thank you so much for reaching out to planDisney and we are here for more Disney vacation planning tips. Please feel free to write me back directly with any follow-up questions.

    Enjoy making many Magical Memories.
