    What's it like going straight from DS to Epcot? I know they are next to each other but I don't want to have to take a bus to a hotel only to transfer to another bus to go to Epcot. Is there a boat between the 2? What's the best way and how long will it be?

    Hi Melissa,

    Don't worry, there is a bus from the main Epcot entrance direct to Disney's Hollywood Studios this should take about 15 minutes plus waiting time. Another option is to leave Epcot through the International Gateway, which is between France and the UK in the world showcase. Here you will find a boat that goes to the Studios, it takes about 35 minutes as it does make several stops at the Boardwalk hotels, but it's a nice relaxing ride. If you're feeling energetic there is a walking path from the Boardwalk to the Studios this takes approximately 30 minutes depending on how fast you walk, I wouldn't recommend this in hot weather though.

    I like to use the transport wizard at to plan my route.

    Hope that helps and you have a great trip,
