For those who do not know, the EPCOT International Gateway is the “other” entrance/exit to EPCOT. It’s also the access point for the Disney Skyliner.

Entering the park at the International Gateway lands you between the France and the United Kingdom Pavilions, a perfect landing spot for those wanting to head first to one of the most popular rides at the park, Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure in France.

If you’d like to eat breakfast at an EPCOT Resort you have a couple of options. You could eat before entering the park or you could eat a later breakfast after entering the park.

If you’d like to eat before entering the park, grab an Uber or Disney transportation to drop you off at one of these Resorts/restaurants.
