    We have early dinning reservations at Hollywood and would like to take boat transportation there. How early does boat transportation begin?

    Hello Tammy,

    Thanks for stopping by!  Friendship ferry boats provide transportation to Disney's Hollywood Studios and Epcot from:

    Disney's BoardWalk Inn & Villas
    Disney's Beach Club Resort & Villas
    Disney's Yacht Club Resort
    Walt Disney World Swan Hotel
    Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel

    My guess is that you are staying at one of these wonderful properties.  The boats start to run approximately one hour before the theme parks open.  I would recommend, however, that you let the front desk at your resort know that you have an early morning breakfast reservation at Disney's Hollywood Studios.  The Cast Member you engage will give you specific information regarding where and what time to catch transportation that ensures you are at your table with time to spare!

    Have a magical trip!
