Cape May Cafe & Epcot

On our Epcot day, we have a 7:50 ressie at the Cape May Cafe. We planned on walking to the Beach Club from Epcot. My question is getting back. Epcot closes at 9:00 PM. Will we be able to re-enter Epcot on the side so that we can walk through the park to the front and get a bus back to our resort?

I would think no. You should take the bus to DTD then transfer to your resort.

If you are really late then you will not be able to enter epcot. You would be better to park at DHS. You could walk to DHS parking lot from BC or get a boat if they are still running. You do not have to go through DHS to get to their parking lot. If you have a dinning ressie you can also park at BC - self park or valet for a charge.

The OP was asking about bus transportation, so parking lots won't really help. However, if DHS is open later that Epcot (it sometimes is), it would make sense to boat or walk to DHS from BC to catch a bus to their resort.

If you have parked at Epcot, the best plan is simply to drive to the Beach Club and park there for dinner. You are allowed to park for 3 hours with an ADR.
You will not be able to walk through Epcot after 9 PM to get to the front and the parking lot.
If you do not have a car at Epcot, you would take a bus to DTD and then transfer to a bus for your resort.
What I would do personally, would be to budget and save the approximately $20 for a taxi back to my hotel after dinner.
Good Luck

The only way you would be able to do that is if Epcot had EMH that evening. If not, then your best bet is to probably take a bus to DTD from the Beach Club and catch a bus to your resort from there.

Thanks everyone for the advice. I think we will just take a cab back to POR. We have 2 little ones and it will be a long day so I'd rather save the time of taking 2 buses home. Thanks again.
