    How do I take a boat from EPCOT to Hollywood Studios?

    Hi Heather; thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question about the Disney Water Transportation System between EPCOT and Disney's Hollywood Studios! It looks like your trip is just about ready to set sail, so let's dive into your question!

    Park hopping between EPCOT and Hollywood Studios by boat is one of my family's favorites! We enjoy the change of pace and scenery and the relaxing views of the Boardwalk Resort Area while we rest our feet and get ready for our next adventures!

    To access the Friendship Boats on Crescent Lake, you will want to exit EPCOT at the back of the park at the International Gateway, which is situated between the France and United Kingdom pavillions. Once you exit, go past the Disney Skyliner station and you will see the boat dock to your left. The boats run on a schedule and arrive approximately every 20 minutes. The ride is leisurely and does make several resort stops before docking at Disney's Hollywood Studios, so keep this in mind if you have any specific time frame that you need to follow and allow yourself extra transportation time as needed.

    It looks like your dates are going to align with the EPCOT International Festival of the Arts, so be sure to check out all of the unique festival offerings like specialty culinary dishes, interactive art displays, and the artful photo ops throughout the park while you are there! 

    And since you might be ending your day over at Disney's Hollywood Studios, be sure to check out my absolute favorite nighttime spectacular, Fantasmic! to see just how powerful an imgination really can be!

    Wishing you a magical vacation,
