    Default Meeting for Sat's breakfast

    Just a quick, perhaps stupid question. I see that we are supposed to meet at 8 am at EPCOT guest relations on Saturday. That is at the front of the park, correct? What would be the easiest way get there if I am staying at an EPCOT resort? I am assuming we won't be able to get through the International Gateway to cut through before 8. Is there another way to get to the front of the pak or should I take a taxi? Thanks in advance for any advice.

    I'm at BC too and was thinking of driving to the front of the park. We have a car, I think that's easiest.

    I have room for 2 more, if anyone in the BC area needs a ride!

    Have any of you called your resort and asked them that question? We're an official paying event and we can't be the first ones who have done this.

    Someone said you *may* be able to walk thru international gateway - but I'm honestly not sure.

    Maybe one of you folks can get the official word and share

    I'm so sorry you found out this way!

    My wonderful friend, Melissa, had chosen to be surprised about where I booked us. Since she's always the one planning the trips for her family, she wanted to be surprised. After I had posted info about where we were staying, I thought, "I'd better warn her not to read any of my posts". Too late.

    I'll try to think of something else to surprise you with since I ruined this one!

    Oh my gosh, that is so incredibly nice of you! We have 3 so, unless we can get in through the International Gateway, we’ll have to go with the cab. You kindness only makes me more certain that it was a good decision to make this trip. I’m so happy to be a part of this great Disney community! I can’t wait to meet everyone!

    My awesome friend, Maria should have known since she was the one that got me totally hooked! Seems like I can't get enough of reading all the boards and listening to the podcasts! I'm on Cloud 9 and have been since we started planning our trip! No worries Maria!

    When I was at the Yacht club last summer, and doing the Segway tour at 7:30am, the YC provided a cab for me. I was not able to go walk thru the international gateway entrance, and the Cast Member working at the front desk told me they did NOT provide cabs, but I pushed the issue (asked her to please go get her manager for me), and she came back with a cab voucher for me to use. Might be worth asking at the frnot desk.... I did this the night before the tour if that helps. The reason I even pushed the issue for a cab was because I KNOW the WDW prides themselves on their transportation and getting you to where/what ever you have paid for.

    OK, so, I started out with The Beach Club and talked to Judy who said that she thought we could get in through the International Gateway as long as we had our “paperwork” but she wasn’t exactly certain so she transferred me to “Tours”. There, I spoke with Esther Gayle who said that, when she books tours, she gives guests who are staying at the Epcot resorts a confirmation number so that they may enter the park early through the IG. However, for something like this, she said that we’d need to talk to the event coordinator (John?) in order to get that set up and get confirmation numbers (if possible).

    During the course of our conversation, Esther Gayle added that it would be faster to take a cab from the resort to the main entrance than to walk through the International Gateway all the way to the front. Probably true but, when we have our “Disney walk” on, we’re pretty darn fast.

    Anyway, not sure if I should pursue this and try to call Epcot directly or not but I think we’ll probably just take a cab as planned. My plan is to talk to the concierge Friday night to make sure we have a cab Saturday morning.

    John,

    You've got quite a bit on your plate right now. I think cabs will be fine and shouldn't cost too much either. If you want to pursue this, let me know if there is anything I can do to help....or if you need help with anything.

    Thank you so much for EVERYTHING!!!

    You're welcome. I was happy to do it. Even if it is longer to walk through, I think it would have been really cool to do so before the park opens. See you there!

    Question for the rest of us: I'm staying at the Contemporary. Will the monorails be working that early in the morning? Will there be busses?
    I tend the think there will be, because some people might have early morning ADR's at Akershus, etc. so there's got to be some transportation running at that time of day, right?
