    Will the ticket booth at International Gateway be open that extra early (8:00am hour before park opens) to process my "online" tickets I have on paper or do they only open at 9:00am when the park opens?

    Hello, Jennifer! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I'm happy to hear you have an upcoming trip to visit Mickey and his pals soon!

    EPCOT has always held a special place in my heart, and I'm excited to see what the future transformations hold. The new Guest Relations ticket counter at EPCOT's International Gateway opened last November, and it's conveniently located for guests staying at Disney's BoardWalk Inn or Disney's Yacht and Beach Club Resorts, or those coming in via the Disney Skyliner. The good news is this location starts operating one hour before park opening each day, so you will be able to get your Will Call online tickets at 8:00 AM. 

    One place I always recommend visiting when entering through the International Gateway is Les Halles Boulangerie-Patisserie for a pastry and cafe latte (this traditional French bakery opens earlier than most of World Showcase at 9:00 AM).  I can't think of a better way to start your magical day! Make sure your plans also include attending the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival. I was there a few days ago, and I could see the Cast Members setting up the beloved character topiaries. I also really enjoyed getting a view of the Great White North in the brand new CircleVision movie, Canada Far and Wide, voiced by Canadian actors Catherine O'Hara and Eugene Levy. I'm ready to book my flight to Vancouver!

    I hope you have a magical vacation, Jennifer! See ya' real soon!
