Crocodile Topiary at Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival

    Mary from NJ Asked

    We are planning an August 2018 visit and have a question concerning Disney Beach Club Resort. In the morning, does the Epcot World Showcase entrance you can walk to from the Resort open when Future World opens or does it open later.

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Mary! 

    You've selected an excellent Walt Disney World® Resort hotel as your home-away-from-home during your vacation. Disney's Beach Club Resort is one of my family's favorites! We love the ambience, the great rooms for a family of five, the splash-tastic pool, Stormalong Bay, and of course, its proximity to Epcot. 

    As a guest of this casual beach-y resort, you will have access to the secondary entrance into Epcot, the International Gateway Entrance. This location opens for guests each day at park opening! So you're all set, even if you are wanting to enter Epcot during the morning hours. You'll be able to walk through the west side of World Showcase to get to Future World. I love being able to enjoy the stroll through the United Kingdom Pavilion and the Canada Pavilion with very few guests as we head toward Test Track or Soarin' for our morning FastPass+ attraction. 

    Being able to walk to two of the four theme parks makes the Epcot Area Resorts a fabulous location in the heart of the magic.

    I hope this helps! Please let me know if you should have any additional questions, Mary. I am here to help with all the pixie-dusted details.
