International Gateway is just another entrance and exit for Epcot and is located on the World Showcase side, next to the United Kingdom Pavilion. You can walk here (easy from Disney's Yacht Club Resort and Disney's Beach Club Resort) or take a Friendship boat here from the nearby Epcot hotels.

This entrance opens when Epcot opens but because World Showcase opens later, you have to walk a bit to get to the Future World side of Epcot before you can experience anything in the morning. Lockers are available for rent here as are strollers and a few ECVs. You will go through the usual bag check inspection point like any other Disney park entrance.

Once inside, there is a shop here called World Traveler which will offer various souvenirs, some cold drinks, rain ponchos, water misters, and other stuff you'll find all over the parks.
