    I am travelling to Disney in September and staying at the Beach Club resort. My husband and I have booked the Backstage Magic tour. Will it be possible to enter Epcot at the International Gateway before opening and make our way to the front gates?

    Hi Carol!!

    Thank you so much for your question to the Walt Disney World Moms Panel!!!

    Yes, you will be able to enter Epcot via the International Gateway Entrance before 9:00am.  Just simply state to the Cast Member at the turnstiles that you are staying at Disney's Beach Club Resort and are participating in the Backstage Magic Tour and need to get to the front of Epcot.  

    Once they let you in, you will stay to the left at the top of the hill and make your way through the United Kingdom and Canadian Pavilions.  Enjoy this walk because you may be the only ones walking through at the time.

    Once you get to Future World and if any Cast Members stop you, simply tell them that you are needing to get to the Front Gate for the Backstage Magic Tour.  Once there, ENJOY!!!!!

    Please let me know if you have any other questions!!

    Have a magical trip!!
