    Hi Erin, Thank you for answering my last question! I was also wondering if Hollywood Studios is within walking distance (ECV scooter distance) from where we are staying at the Beach Club Resort? Cheers!

    Hi Caithlin,

    Thank you for writing back!

    To give you some perspective, the front entrance of the Beach Club is less than a quarter mile to the International Gateway entrance to Epcot. The closest of the Boardwalk restaurants is about a tenth of a mile beyond that. These are very easy for both walking and scooters.

    There is a well-marked, even path to get from the Beach Club to Disney's Hollywood Studios. The distance is about 1.1 miles. For a healthy adult, this is not generally a problem. I've done it myself many times. However, I do have to say that I usually make the walk from the Beach Club to DHS first thing in the morning, when it is cool out and I'm well rested. At the end of the day, when I'm hot and tired, I generally use Disney's boat system to get back to the hotel.

    There are Friendship boats that make a constant loop between the Yacht/Beach Club dock, the Swan/Dolphin dock, Hollywood Studios, the Boardwalk and Epcot. The boat ride is quite pleasant. I've found the pace to be such that it takes about the same time to walk from the Beach Club to DHS as it does to take the boat. The difference is that you're sitting vs. walking.

    The Friendship boats are ECV accessible. The captain will put out a ramp and the ECV can be driven right onto the boat, easy-peasy. (There are rare instances when weather conditions prohibit the transport of ECVs onto the boat, but you generally wouldn't want to be out in these circumstances anyway.) 

    So, the answer to your question is yes, Hollywood Studios is walkable from the Beach Club, but if you're not in the mood to walk, there is another option.

    Please let me know if you have more questions. I'm happy to help!
