    How long does it take to walk from hollywood studios to epcot using the walking path within the parks?

    Hi Cindy,

    The walk from Disney's Hollywood Studios to the International Gateway entrance of Epcot is easy and the quickest way my family has found to travel between the two parks. It usually takes us 20 to 30 minutes to make the stroll, which is much faster than taking the water taxis the same distance because the boats make three other stops before reaching Epcot.

    The wide sidewalk along the waterway is well marked and takes you through the Boardwalk area, where we often stop for an ice cream at Ample Hills Creamery or a drink and snack from one of the kiosks or restaurants. Or you can veer left on the path and pass through the Yacht Club and Beach Club resorts instead, where again you can stop for ice cream, drinks or snacks at Beaches & Cream Soda Shop or Hurricane Hanna's Waterside Bar & Grill.

    Did you know, Cindy, that the My Disney Experience Mobile App now includes a "Get Directions" feature? It is a great resource when you are trying to determine the best route inside the parks and all around the Walt Disney World resort. Of course, you're always welcome to check back with us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, too. We're here to help however we can.

    Enjoy your vacation!
