    Best way to get to Hollywood Studios from Epcot?

    Hi, Judith!

    Thanks for sending this great question to Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Getting to and from various parks and resorts in Walt Disney World is super easy, once you get a lay of the land.

    Both of my suggested routes have you leaving Epcot through International Gateway--I like to call it Epcot's back door; this is a path that runs right between UK Pavilion and the bridge to the France Pavilion.

    If you would like to walk between Disney's Hollywood Studios and Epcot, there is a lovely, paved, flat, waterside path that connects the two theme parks with a 15-20 minute walk. Once you've exited Epcot, head straight until a bridge on  your left. Turn and follow the path/signage to Disney's Hollywood Studios.

    Should you rather not walk, you can take a boat. Exit Epcot via International Gateway, look to your immediate left to find the Friendship Launch, which will pick up guests who are headed to resorts along Crescent Lake and Disney's Hollywood Studios. Click on this link for Walt Disney World Water Transportation, then select the link to "Disney's Beach Club Resort"; you'll see a map on the right side of the page. Click on it and look to the right to see the walkway from UK Pavilion and the Friendship Launch at International Gateway. On that same map, glance down to the left of Disney's BoardWalk Area and you'll see that walking path referenced above, too, which will lead you right to Disney's Hollywood Studios.
