    We will be visiting Epcot on a Tuesday, so we will have Extra Magic Hours from 8-9 before the park opens. If we want to get to Elsa and Anna as quickly as possible, would it be faster to go through the international entrance or normal entrance?

    Hi, Jaycee! I think that the actual time to walk from the front gate to Norway or from the International Gateway to Norway would be about the same.  However, the crowd-level might make the difference.  There is significantly less Guest traffic through the International Gateway.  You would have less wait time at security and the entrance gates. Once inside, there would also be fewer Guests dashing for rides and attractions.  With that being said, I don't think it would make more than five minutes' difference either way, so I would choose whichever gate is more convenient from your starting point that morning.  Happy planning and have a Magical vacation!
