Epcots International Gateway

Epcots International Gateway provides entry into Epcot by way of the World Showcase between the United Kingdom pavilion and the French pavilion. Guests can walk to this entrance if they are staying in the Epcot area resorts or they can take any of the Friendship ferry boats from these resorts or from Disney's Hollywood Studios. Disney's water taxis, otherwise known as the Friendship boats, dock just outside this back entrance. They ferry guests to and from nearby resorts including the Yacht and Beach Club, Boardwalk, and the Swan and Dolphin.

This back entrance into the park is not usually crowded, and it also has a stroller and wheelchair rental desk. Once inside the park, you can either go straight toward the United Kingdom pavilion and Canada or you can turn right to walk over the bridge into France. The shortest way to get to Future World from the back gate is to go straight through the United Kingdom and Canada. Once you pass the Refreshment Port, turn left down the rose lined walkway and the path takes you into the Imagination pavilion.


Gateway Gifts - is a small gift shop just inside the rear entrance gate. They sell items that you might have forgotten like sunglasses and sunscreen as well as cameras and last minute souvenirs and clothes.
