    Hi! I come to Disney all the time but this time me and my fiance's family will be staying at the Swan hotel. I am wondering what is the earliest time we can get on the boats to head over to Epcot and Hollywood Studios for early entry?

    Hiya, Ahoy and welcome to planDisney, Hayley! I'm always happy to talk with a fellow Georgian and Disney enthusiast.

    You have chosen a magical place to stay for your trip to Walt Disney World Resort with your fiancé and family. The Walt Disney World Swan is convenient to EPCOT and Disney's Hollywood Studios. The entire Disney BoardWalk area is gorgeous. And there is so much to do just outside your resort's door.

    Setting sail aboard a FriendShip Boat is a fun way to start your day at either of these theme parks.
    FriendShip Boats typically begin running at 8:30 a.m., but you should check with the Front Desk for the most up-to-date information on water transportation

    Looking at the theme park hours calendar for July 6, both of these theme parks have Early Entry Hours beginning at 8:30 a.m. Check with the resort to see if the boat may be running earlier to get you to the entrance gates by 8:30 a.m. EPCOT is an easy walk from the Swan. Hollywood Studios is accessible within a 25-minute walk but may be easier by boat, depending on the preferences of your group. 

    Did you know the My Disney Experience App has maps that include resort transportation, including walking, buses, the Disney Monorail and Disney Skyliner? Pick your destination on the app, select "Get Directions" and the app will guide you on the best ways to travel. Magic!
