    What time do the friendship boats start in the morning from Hollywood Studios to Epcot? Am I allowed to park at Hollywood Studios and take the boat to Epcot if my reservation is for Epcot?

    Hi Kelly! Welcome back to planDisney.

    Well, long time no chat! I am happy to help you out again for your soon arrival at The World's Most Magical Celebration. I love Walt Disney World Transportation and there are so many fun options. When we vacation, often we park at the theme park we are finishing our day and use the complimentary transportation to our first park of the day.

    FriendShip Boat transportation between Disney's Hollywood Studios and EPCOT will generally begin one hour prior to the first whichever theme park opens first. With this transportation option, please be aware there will be three additional stops to resorts in the Boardwalk area before arriving at the International Gateway at EPCOT. This service continues one hour after the park closes.

    Personally, I would board a colorful gondola for a quick and relaxing flight on the Disney Skyliner. The boarding area at Disney's Hollywood Studios is close to the front gate and will connect you with the International Gateway of EPCOT just like the water transportation. One note with this option, service to EPCOT on the Disney Skyliner begins one hour prior to EPCOT officially opening to guests. Please check your park hours for the day of your visit.

    Keeping it Magical,
