    Hi, we are leaving for Disney World in 10 days (May 7th) and will be staying at the Boardwalk Villas. I wanted to get an idea of travel time from our resort to the parks as we have several ADR's and don't want to be late!!! Thank you!!!

    From the Boardwalk, here's the scoop on transportation:

    To Epcot: Walking will take you about 5 minutes to get to the International Gateway entrance. Once you're inside Epcot, it will take about another 3 minutes to get to meals in England or France and about 5 -12 minutes to walk to meals in the other countries. Your furthest meal would probably be the Coral Reef which is about a 15 minute walk from the Epcot Gateway entrance.

    To Disney's Hollywood Studios: Walking there will take about 20 minutes. Or taking the boat will be about the same amount of time (and much cooler). Once you're inside the park, it takes 5 minutes to walk to Hollywood and Vine, the Brown Derby or the Prime Time Cafe. It takes maybe 10 minutes to walk to the Sci-Fi Dine-In.

    To Animal Kingdom: Take the bus. The ride to the AK is 15-20 minutes. Once inside the park, Tusker House is about a 10-12 minute walk. Yak and Yeti is about a 15 minute walk.

    To the Magic Kingdom: Take the bus. The ride is about 20-25 minutes. Once inside the park, Crystal Palace, Tony's Town Square, and Cinderella's Castle are a 5 -7 minute walk. Liberty Tree Tavern is a 7 to 10 minute walk.

    Also consider that you may have to wait for a bus to arrive and you may have to wait for lines at the park entrances. Also, if there are crowds, you may have to walk a bit slower than you'd like.

    Hope this helps.
