Answered Question - Disney Parks Moms Panel
- Hello! Is the International Gateway kept open for evening extra magic hours for EPCOT? Staying at YACHT and don't know if I can walk back to the resort since the international showcase will be closed during evening extra magic hours. Thanks!

- Hi George,
There are actually several World Showcase attractions which run during evening Extra Magic Hours (Maelstrom and Gran Fiesta Tour, for example). But there's no need to worry anyway, the International Gateway is open any time any of the park is open. Guests staying at the Epcot area resorts can also use the Gateway to access the park for events before the park opens, such as early character meals at Akershus.
I absolutely adore staying at the Yacht & Beach Club because the Gateway access to Epcot is so wonderful. You'll have no trouble walking back to your hotel in the evening via the Gateway.
Have a great trip!
