    Kimberly from NC Asked

    I am visiting WDW this Sept. and have a reservation for the Cape May Cafe character breakfast at 10:30 and will be in Epcot the same morning. Will I be allowed to enter the World Showcase (even though they don't open until 11:00) to get to the BC Resort?

    Kimberly,
    Great name!

    Yes, you will be able to walk through World Showcase to the International Gateway in order to exit Epcot and make your way to the Beach Club.

    Prior to 11:00 a.m. guests may enter and exit the International Gateway in order to walk to and from Epcot's Future World.

    There will be Cast Members manning the rope that cuts off access to the rest of World Showcase. Basically you can walk from Future World, through Canada and past the United Kingdom. This is where you will turn right to exit Epcot via the International Gateway. (Guests are unable to continue over into France until the 11:00 a.m. opening time.)

    Prior to 11:00 a.m., you will be able to walk freely on the route that I mentioned above. However the shops, restaurants and attractions in Canada and the United Kingdom will be closed. We have made this walk in the opposite direction (from the Beach Club to Future World) on many occasions.  It is a very pretty morning walk. It's one of my favorite WDW activities!

    The walk from the International Gateway to the Beach Club is very pleasant as well. Walk directly along the water and allow enough time to enjoy this beautiful stroll!
