    Doing a monorail/skyliner crawl starting at MK to Epcot...then thought we'd get a bus to Boardwalk then grab Skyliner to end at Pop...but since it's so close..seems no bus from Epcot to Boardwalk? Any ideas? Can't walk??


    Thanks for asking your question to planDisney!

    I love a good Disney resort crawl! It is fun to see all the different hotel themes. Bundling in some theme park visits makes it even more fun!

    If I understand your route correctly, you are staring out at the Magic Kingdom and heading to EPCOT. From there, you might want to visit Disney's BoardWalk, and eventually end up at Disney's Pop Century Resort hotel. You get some time on the monorail, the Disney Skyliner, and possibly more!

    To answer your question, there is a bus that goes from the front of EPCOT to Disney's BoardWalk Inn. That is the end where you find the iconic Spaceship Earth. However, you can also walk or boat to the BoardWalk from the International Gateway entrance to EPCOT. That entrance, lovingly nicknamed the 'backdoor' of EPCOT, is located by the England pavilion in the World Showcase section of the park. It is also where, just outside the park, the Disney Skyliner is located. so if you were just about riding the monorail and the Skyliner, you are good to go. But if you want that stop at the BoardWalk, from that entrance, you can boat to the BoardWalk, or even walk there. In less than a 1/4-mile walk (0.4 km), you are at the start of the BoardWalk. 

    When the time comes, you can easily walk or boat back to the International Gateway entrance, where you can catch the Disney Skyliner for the rest of your journey to Pop Century.

    During your flight on the Disney Skyliner from EPCOT to Pop Century, you will find a free-standing Joffrey's Coffee and Tea stand. It is located by the Caribbean Beach station, where you change lines. It is a great place to grab a drink for the rest of your flight!

    Please feel free to write me back directly if you have any follow-up questions, or if I did not address exactly what you were asking.

    Have a Magical Vacation!
