    Can you get from HS to the Boardwalk via the skyliner? If not, what is the best way without walking?


    Hello from Indiana!

    So there is an easy and convenient way to get from Disney's Hollywood Studios to Disney's BoardWalk with a minimal amount of walking. Here are your steps to follow

    1. As you leave Hollywood Studios, hop on the Disney Skyliner
    2. When you reach the station at Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort, you will transfer to the Skyliner route that heads to EPCOT
    3. Upon arrival you have two choices. The first is to walk from there, which is about 3/10 of a mile when walking to the center of the BoardWalk. The second choice is to hop on the Friendship Boat that will take you to the same place. Typically the boat ride will take longer, but the ride is an enjoyable sail around Crescent Lake. If reducing walking is the goal, the second option is your best choice.

    Lots of folks want to visit the AbracadaBar for their magician-themed animated posters and specialty drinks. But if it is too crowded, consider visiting the Belle Vue Lounge located in Disney's BoardWalk Inn. It has a wonderfully relaxed atmosphere, and it is one my favorite getaways at Walt Disney World.    

    The two Skyliner rides should take you about 20 minutes, not including the transfer time at the Caribbean Beach station. 

    Write me back if you have any other questions.

    Have a Magical Vacation!
