    We are visiting EPCOT but will not be staying on property for this visit. We have visited EPCOT several times but wanted to enter through the International Gateway entrance for a change. With out being a resort guest, is this possible?

    Hi Chris! Welcome to planDisney!

    You must be excited to return to the Walt Disney World Resort very soon! I am counting down the days until my next visit to EPCOT and I can't wait to taste my way around the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival. I know you will enjoy it!

    The International Gateway entrance for EPCOT is a great option for those staying at the EPCOT area resorts, as well as Guests coming in on the Disney Skyliner. While Guests visiting EPCOT will have to park in the EPCOT parking lot and enter through the main entrance, Guests that will be park hopping from Disney's Hollywood Studios could enter via the International Gateway after traveling on the Disney Skyliner (or by boat or walking path). If you plan to do any park hopping, this is definitely an option! Just keep in mind that Guests are not allowed to park in any of the Disney Resorts Collection hotel parking lots for their day in the theme parks.

    I hope this helps, Chris! Please let us know if you have any other questions.
