    Hi there, We are staying at Port Orleans Riverside and when we go to Epcot we’d like to enter through International Gateway and not the main park entrance. How could we get across to there if we get the bus from POR to Epcot? Can we walk there? Thanks :)


    Thanks for asking your question to planDisney!

    No, you cannot walk from the front entrance of EPCOT to the International Gateway entrance without going through the park. But I may have an alternate route for you that could see you soaring to your destination in style!

    Rather than grabbing the bus from Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside to the front gates of EPCOT, take the bus that is headed to Disney's Hollywood Studios instead. Once there, simply hop onto the Disney Skyliner and fly to the International Gateway. You will make a quick transfer at the Caribbean Beach station from one line to the other, but after only about 20 minutes of flying time, you will be at your destination!

    There is a Joffrey's Coffee & Tea Company kiosk that is a free-standing booth located by the Caribbean Beach Disney Skyliner station. You can enjoy a drink on your travels and arrive charged and ready to go!

    Please feel free to write me back directly if you have any follow-up questions.

    Have a Magical Vacation!
