    What is the best way to get to Epcot from Hollywood Studios? And how long should we set aside for travel? Thank you!

    Hi Patricia!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Park hopping is the perfect way to make the most of every single moment, and Disney provides transport between every theme park to make those hops even easier!  There are 3 options for you to choose from to travel from Disney's Hollywood Studios to Epcot.  You can take a Disney bus, which is the quickest way, and the journey time will take around 15 minutes.  A FriendShip Boat would give you the most relaxing option and will take you to the International Gateway of Epcot, located between the France and United Kingdom pavilions of World Showcase, and you should allow around 35 minutes for the ride.  Don't forget to add extra waiting time for your bus or your boat - buses arrive approximately every 20 minutes, and water taxis on most routes run on 15-30 minute intervals. You can also walk between these two parks in around 30 minutes (depending on your pace!).  All transport at Disney's Hollywood Studios can be picked up from the front of the park.  If you are really pushed for time, you might like to use the Minnie Van Service.  These are such a fun way to travel around Walt Disney World, they can accommodate up to 6 guests and are driven by very knowledgeable and friendly Disney Cast Members.  You can book your Minnie Van by using the Lyft app (where you will also see the cost of this service).  

    Please come back and visit us if you have any further questions. We will be happy to help you plan your magical vacation to Walt Disney World.
