    From the Swan Hotel, what is faster the bus or the boat ride to get to Epcot during June? The boat may stop at other resorts on the way, will the bus do the same?

    Howdy Elizabeth!

    Welcome back to planDisney!  Thank you for stopping by and sharing your question with us!

    My family and I love the different modes of transportation that the Walt Disney World Resort offers.  It looks like you are trying to decide the fastest way to get to EPCOT from the Walt Disney World Swan Hotel.  I recently took a Friendship boat from the Walt Disney World Swan Hotel to Epcot, and the total trip was less than 30 minutes.  From my experience, the buses and the Friendship boats take about the same amount of time.  I prefer taking the boat transportation because it is very relaxing, they stay on schedule, and I love to enter EPCOT through the International Gateway to World Showcase.  If you preferred to enter EPCOT through the main gate, I would recommend taking the bus transportation.  Whichever option you choose, it is always lovely to sit back and let Disney transport you to your final destination!

    If you have not experienced Disney’s Skyliner, then you are in for a treat!  This whimsical gondola flight through the sky will make you feel like you are flying with Peter Pan!  You can board the Disney Skyliner from the Friendship Launch – EPCOT International Gateway!  Disney’s Skyliner can transport you across the Walt Disney World Resort property and onward to Disney’s Hollywood Studios!  Disney’s Skyliner can also bring you to Disney’s Riviera Resort for dinner!  This fun flight through the sky is a relaxing way to take in all the beautiful scenery!

    If you have not visited Topolino’s Terrace – Flavors of the Riviera, I highly recommend it!  This dining experience offers yummy food options and beautiful views!  You will be able to take Disney’s Skyliner to Disney’s Riviera Resort and enjoy this fabulous dining experience!  I have placed a link in the highlighted area above so that you can check out the menu, photos, and all the details about this fantastic dining option to make your Advanced Dining Reservations!
