Guests staying at any of the resorts in the Epcot Resorts Area have access to the International Gateway, a side entrance to Epcot's World Showcase. The entrance is located directly east of Disney's Beach Club Resort. It is accessible either by walking or by boarding a short Friendship water launch at Disney's Yacht Club Resort, Disney's BoardWalk Resort, Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin or at Disney's Hollywood Studios. For guests staying at Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort and Disney's Riviera Resort the International Gateway is accessible via Disney Skyliner. The International Gateway entrance offers a full service park entry gate, park exit, ticket windows, locker rentals, wheelchair/stroller rentals, and a gift shop. The International Gateway and canal is located between the United Kingdom and France pavilions.
In addition to the special Epcot entrance, guests at the same resorts also have access to the entrance of Disney's Hollywood Studios by walking or Friendship boat. However, the walking and boating distances from the closest Deluxe Resorts (respectively, Disney's Boardwalk and the Swan and Dolphin) to the park are significantly longer and require walking a road bridge. For guests staying at Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort and Disney's Riviera Resort Disney's Hollywood Studios is accessible via Disney Skyliner.
