Answered Question - Disney Parks Moms Panel
- Hi! My family & I are running the 5k in Feb @ EP. We plan on going to HS afterwards. We are looking to eat breakfast on the Broadwalk and then walk to HS. Will the Intl Gateway be open for us to do that? Thanks!

- Hi Bonnie!
My family loves the Boardwalk area. We always stay there because there is so much around to do that you can walk to!
On the morning of the 5K, your race will begin at 6:15 a.m. The finish line will not actually be inside of Epcot. Runners will run through the park, but finish in the parking lot. Since Epcot won't open that day until 9 a.m., you wouldn't be able to walk to the back of Epcot and exit at the International Gateway to head to breakfast.
If you have your own vehicle, you could drive from the Epcot parking lot to the Boardwalk, and then walk over to Hollywood Studios after you eat.
If you don't have a vehicle, there will be buses going from the race finish to all Disney Resorts. You could hop on the Boardwalk Resort bus, have breakfast and then walk to Hollywood Studios.
I hope this helps! Please let me know if you have any other questions.
