    You all are such a great help! We have dinner @ Brown Derby at 5:10 then we want to watch Illuminations @ EPCOT & head over to Jellyrolls after Illuminations & from Jellyrolls to POFQ. What is the best transportation route for all this? Thanks!

    Sounds like you have a great evening planned. The Brown Derby is one of my favorite WDW restaurants.

    When you're finished at the Brown Derby, exit Hollywood Studios. With your back to the park, the bus stops will be to your right and a boat dock will be to your left. Head left to the boat dock. The boat there will take you on a very pleasant ride, making stops at the Swan/Dolphin, Yacht/Beach, and Boardwalk resorts, ending up at Epcot. The entire trip takes about 20 minutes. You could also walk it in about the same amount of time, but the ride is relaxing and saves your energy for more fun later. Your boat will dock directly adjacent to the International Gateway entrance to Epcot, which is located in the World Showcase area between the England and France pavilions. 

    You will likely have some time to explore the shops and attractions in a few of the World Showcase countries before Illuminations begins (usually at 9:00). After the show, exit Epcot from the International Gateway where you entered. You could get back on the boat to take you to the Boardwalk. Or, at this point, I would walk. There is a very clear path to the Boardwalk area; just bear left at the bridge. Walking to Jellyrolls takes about 10-15 minutes depending on your pace, and it gives you a chance to see some of the fun shops and evening entertainment on the Boardwalk. Jellyrolls is at the end of the Boardwalk path, near the Swan/Dolphin. You'll see it.

    After Jellyrolls, frankly what I would do is get a cab back to Port Orleans. This is going to cost in the neighborhood of $15.00 (prices vary) but it could save you quite a lot of time. If do you want to take Disney transportation, I would walk back to the front entrance of the Boardwalk hotel (2-3 minutes from Jellyrolls) and get on a bus to Downtown Disney. At DD you will transfer to a bus or a shuttle boat that will take you Port Orleans.

    I hope you're planning on sleeping in after your super fabulous night ;-)
