    Will the boats from HS to the Yacht Club be running in December? Is there any weather conditions that might cause the boats to be canceled? Is it a good idea to try to use the boats in December? Thanks for your help.

    Hello, Mary,

    Walt Disney World Water Transportation that runs between the Epcot resorts, Disney's Hollywood Studios, and Epcot do run all year long and are a peaceful way to travel between the locations and a great chance to take a peek at many of the resorts and the Boardwalk area.  The Friendship Boats that are used have solid roofs and actual windows, so they hold up well in rain. However, sometimes the weather may become more extreme in which case the boats may temporarily not run.  Once the weather clears up, the boats will start running again.  I recommend using the boats year round, including December.  

    If you'd like to read more about Disney transportation options, I'd recommend doing an internet search for A Walt Disney World Transportation Primer: Monorails, Buses, and Boats, Oh My by Erin Foster.  It is a comprehensive article about all modes of Disney transportation, including the boats.  

    Wishing you a magical trip!  If you have any further questions, please let us know. -Kara
