    Hello Mom's (and Dad's) Panel! My husband and I are ringing in 2019 at Epcot and plan to do some park hopping later in the week. Is it faster to travel between Epcot and DHS by bus or by boat? I'd love to try the water transportation!

    Dear Shelley,

    Thank you so much for stopping by to visit us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your great question about your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation!

    I love to try all of the forms of transportation at the Walt Disney World Resort, and especially the water transportation! If you are in World Showcase, the boats are quite close! Just head out of the International Gateway and you will easily see where to board. Because the boats make a couple of stops, they are not fast, but they are very fun and scenic!

    If you find yourself closer to the front entrance of Epcot, then the bus may be your best bet instead! It may not be as scenic as the water transportation, but it will get you where to need to go in air-conditioned comfort!

    Hope that helps with your magical planning!
