    What is the best way for us to get from Epcot to the boathouse restaurant? Also, to get from magic kingdom to contemporary resort for dinner?

    Heigh-ho, ho, ho! It's off to Walt Disney World Resort you go, Karen!

    I'm so excited you'll be visiting The Most Magical Place on Earth during the most wonderful time of the yEAR! You're going to feel so much chEAR when you see the festive decor and try delicious holiday treats! Yay!

    Karen, to get from EPCOT to Disney Springs, which is where The BOATHOUSE® restaurant is located, you would have to leave EPCOT to a Disney Resorts Collection hotel and take a bus to Disney Springs from there. I have two recommendations, depending on which area of EPCOT you are located at when you're ready to leave:

    If you're by the World Showcase, near the France Pavilion, I would recommend exiting from EPCOT's International Gateway and walking over to Disney's Beach Club Resort, which is about a 15-minute walk, and taking the bus to Disney Springs from there.

    If you are near the front exit of EPCOT, you can take a bus to any Disney Resorts Collection hotel and catch a bus to Disney Springs for the hotel. 

    You're going to have so much fun checking out Disney's Contemporary Resort! My Mouseketeers love watching the Disney Monorail go through the Resort hotel. If you'd like to get there from Magic Kingdom Park, you can exit the park and take the walking path to Disney's Contemporary Resort; this walk is about 10 minutes. You can also take the Disney Monorail to Disney's Contemporary Resort!

    Did you know that you could pull up walking directions on your My Disney Experience Mobile app if you ever need any assistance with directions? Just open up the app, select the magnifying glass located on the bottom of the screen, and type in "Disney's Contemporary Resort" in the search bar. You can then select "Get Directions," and it will show you the way!

    Have an enchanting visit, Karen!
