    Thanks again! We may walk to EP in the morning from the Dolphin then use monorail to MK after a few rides. Can we access EP from the International Gateway entrance before Worldshowcase is open? Thoughts?

    Hi, Jo Ann!

    Thanks for writing back.  I am getting so excited for your upcoming vacation!

    Even though World Showcase will not be open first thing in the morning, you can still enter through the International Gateway.  This is great way to enter Epcot as it does not usually get very crowded at this entrance as compared to the main entrance in the front of the park.  You will then walk past England and Canada and onto Future World where you can enjoy your morning. 

    When you are ready to head to the Magic Kingdom, simply exit the front gates and hop on the monorail that will whisk you to the Transportation and Ticket Center.  You will change monorails, and the Express Monorail will drop you at the front gates of Magic Kingdom.
    When you are ready to go back to your resort, there is a bus stop just outside the gates of the Magic Kingdom.  Your friendly bus driver will be happy to take you back to the Dolphin after a magical afternoon in the Magic Kingdom.  

    It sounds like you have your vacation very well planned out.   It is going to be great!
