Where is the World Showcase/East Hall?

I have to check in here for an Official Fan Club D23 event next weekend and I don't know where it is! With all the trips I've been blessed to have to WDW, I don't know where to find the World Showcase. Can anyone help?

Thanks,

Thank you. I should have been more clear. I know it's in Epcot, but where in Epcot?

Do you mean the World Showplace? That is in between the Great Britain and Canada pavilions.

Thanks,
In Epcot, where all the countries are. On the opposite side from the Monorail entrance.

I think TDC Nala nailed it. The World Showplace is where they host a lot of special events.

Here is one of Robo's maps. The World Showplace is #12.

Thank you. In all the times I've been here, I have never noticed it
If I have to be there for a special event at 9:30 I'd have to enter in front of park, correct? World showcase is closed til 11:00??

You can enter thru the International Gateway entrance (just down from the Showplace) at regular park opening, if that is more convenient to wherever you're coming from.

It is closer to UK than Canada. You enter between the Pin Cart and the Coffee kiosk, on the side of the promenade opposite the lagoon.

you can enter from international gateway. There is rope blocking you from going beyond a certain point but you can get to where you need to be.
