    Hi! We are staying at The Boardwalk Villas this summer and I was wondering if we will still be able to walk to Hollywood Studios even though all of the exciting Star Wars construction is happening.

    Welcome Home Lisa!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel! One of my favorite things about the Epcot Resorts is their location, location, location! You are a quick walk away from Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Epcot’s International Gateway, and Disney’s BoardWalk, with our favorite place for breakfast, the BoardWalk Bakery!

    I stayed at the Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel two weeks ago, and I can confirm the pathway to Disney’s Hollywood Studios is open during construction. Depending on how fast you walk, you are a 10-15 minute walk away from Disney’s Hollywood Studios. The walkway may be reconfigured from time to time based on construction needs, so check with the Front Desk when you arrive for the most up-to-date information.

    If you choose not to walk, the park is easily accessible via boat. I love the view from the water, and you will be able to see the finishing touches on the brand new Disney Skyliner, slated to open in fall 2019! Friendship Launch is conveniently located in the middle of Disney’s Boardwalk, and the boats depart about every 20 minutes.

    As always, Disney Bus Transportation is complimentary, and if you need to dash across property, the Minnie Van Service will magically appear with a touch of your smartphone! The polka-dotted vehicles are delightful, and available from 6:30 am to 12:30 am to whisk you wherever you need to go.

    Hopefully, these are magical transportation options for you, and good luck amongst the “Pixie” dust!
