    We are thinking about staying at Beach Club and wonder if the International Gateway entrance is open for the Future World morning hours or does it only open when world showcase opens two hours later?

    My family has stayed at the Beach Club many times. We always enter Epcot via the International Gateway. I can assure that the Gateway does open when Future World opens, generally at 9:00 a.m. on regular entry days and 8:00 a.m. on morning Extra Magic days.

    At Future World opening time, you will be allowed to enter the park at the Gateway and will be directed to walk straight through the World Showcase past the England and Canada pavilions. The rest of the World Showcase will remain roped off until that area of the park opens.

    Enjoy your trip to WDW!
