    Arriving at BW on 11/6- how long should we give ourselves to get to the parks each day when using WDW transportation, we would like to be there for park open. I know for Epcot and HS we can walk,but wasn't sure how long it took w/ buses for MK & AK. th

    Hi Nicole,

    There is a great planning tool called the Transport Wizard which can be found at the bottom of the home page of Here you can input your starting and finishing points on Disney property and it will tell you both the best way to get there and roughly how long it will take!

    You're right that from the Boardwalk Resorts you're able to walk to Epcot, via the International Gateway entrance, which takes between 5 and 15 minutes depending on which resort you're staying at and how fast you walk. To get to Hollywood Studios takes roughly 25 minutes to walk or alternatively you can catch the boat which also takes about 25 minutes.

    To get to the Magic Kingdom using the Disney buses will take about 15 minutes and to bus to the Animal Kingdom takes approximately 25 minutes. Buses run roughly every 20 minutes so you always need to allow an extra 20 minutes to get anywhere just incase, like I often do, you just miss the bus!

    Have a fantastic trip,
