    Also how do we get to Disney boardwalk if we aren’t going to parks on that day?

    Valeria,

    Thanks for asking your question to planDisney!

    Disney's BoardWalk is such a fantastic evening destination! Great dining, family-friendly entertainment, and a relaxing break from the busy tempo in the theme parks. 

    Getting to the BoardWalk, however, can be a bit more challenging than a stroll atop the iconic lake side planks. What I suggest is to take a bus from your Disney resort to Disney's Hollywood Studios. When you get there, rather than entering the park, you can walk, fly, or boat to the BoardWalk.

    Option 1: Fly
    I love to hop on the Disney Skyliner, which has a station right there at the Hollywood Studios park entrance. You can soar from there to the EPCOT station and walk the rest of the way. That walk is about a third of a mile (1/2 km). Total time in the air is about 20 minutes, with a few minutes to transfer from one Skyliner route to another. 

    Option 2: Sail
    The Friendship boats also sail from in front of the park entrance, making a few stops along the way. No walking required, but the sail will take about 30 minutes, as it makes a few stops on the route.  

    Option 3: Walk
    You can also walk from the front of Hollywood Studios to the BoardWalk, which is about a mile (1 1/2 km). 

    BOTTOM LINE
    I would opt for the boat or the Skyliner, but really any of the choices are good ones. 

    BONUS TIP
    Coming soon to Disney's BoardWalk is a restaurant from just a few miles away from my home here in Indiana, the Cake Bake Shop

    Write me back if you have any follow-up questions.

    Have a Magical Vacation!
