    Hi Gina,

    A summer vacation to Walt Disney World Resort. How awesome! Let me help you with your question then so you can put the finishing touches to all your vacation plans.

    The Friendships Boats, part of the grand fleet of Walt Disney World Water Transportation, are a nice and relaxing way to travel around Bay Lake, between Epcot and Disney’s Hollywood Studios, as well as the Epcot Resort hotels and Disney’s BoardWalk. At this time, the itinerary is as follows:

    • Epcot International Gateway
    • Disney’s BoardWalk Inn
    • Disney’s Yacht Club Resort and Disney’s Beach Club Resort
    • Walt Disney World Swan Hotel and Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel
    •Disney’s Hollywood Studios

    Boats departing Disney’s Hollywood Studios have the same itinerary in reverse. They launch approximately every 20 minutes, but you should know that it can take about 40-50 minutes to go from one Theme Park to the other.

    You can also walk from one park to the other one but can take some time. For example, the distance from Disney’s Beach Club Resort to Disney’s Hollywood Studios is approximately 1.1 miles and can take you about 22 minutes as per Google Maps. It is a nice walk, and I’ve done it a few times.

    One last tip: be sure to download the My Disney Experience mobile app which includes point-to-point directions within the Resort. Happy planning!
