    We are staying at the Yacht Club over Thanksgiving week. Are we able to walk through World Showcase to Epcot when World Showcase is not open?

    Hi Bill!

    The Yacht Club Resort is my favorite Disney resort and part of the reason I love it is the fact that it is within steps of Epcot. The International Gateway entrance is so convenient and you will be avoiding the large crowds that you would find at the main entrance to this popular park. This entrance will open at the same time the front entrance opens. There will be cast members directing you to go through the United Kingdom and Canada areas to reach the Future World section of the park. If you have an early dining reservation you will also be allowed to enter early once the cast member checks their master reservation list for your name.

    Enjoy our close proximity to Epcot. We would often enter and just walk around if we had free time since we were so close and it was so easy to access through the International Gateway.
