    We're staying at AOA & have a ADR at Beaches & Cream? I read to go to Hollywood studios & then a boat to Beach Club Resort. My dad will be in a scooter, are the boats accessible for him? Is it a long walk from the boat to the restaurant?

    Hi Alexis,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  Beaches & Cream Soda Shop is one of my family's favorite places to dine when visiting Walt Disney World Resort.

    If utilizing Disney's complimentary transportation, I also recommend taking a bus to Disney's Hollywood Studios from Disney's Art of Animation Resort and then transferring to a Friendship boat bound for Disney's Yacht & Beach Club Resorts. I often stay in the Epcot Resort area and have traveled via the Friendship boats many times over the years. The boats have always been accessible to Guests in scooters and to those utilizing strollers. I have never had to collapse my stroller nor have I witnessed a Guest needing to get out of their scooter to board the Friendship boats. I personally feel it's a rather short walk to Beaches & Cream Soda Shop from the Friendship Launch and would estimate the walk to take approximately 5 - 10 minutes at most.

    I hope this information has been helpful to you. If you have any additional questions we can assist you with, please don't hesitate to visit us again. Best wishes for a magical trip, Alexis!

    Happy Travels,
