    Hi, touring EPCOT world showcase and try to minimize the walk by taking the boat. Would you please let me know the route (pick up/drop off points)? Can strollers be rolled onto the boat with child in it? How frequent does the boat run? Thank you!

    Hi Jenny!

    Epcot Theme Park is one of my favorites, and the World Showcase Pavilions are absolutely amazing.   Although the World Showcase Friendship Boats won't necessarily save you much time, they will save you some steps.   You'll be happy to know that you absolutely can roll your stroller onto the boat with your child safely seated in the stroller.  This comes in handy if you've got a napper on your hands! 

    The World Showcase Friendship Boats offer two routes.   One route goes from the Canada side to Morocco and back.  The other route goes from the Mexico side to Germany and back.  In order to get from one point to the other, the journey will take around 10 minutes.  This means that if you've just missed a boat,  you may wait for around 20 minutes for the boat to return.  You can walk much quicker,  but if you decide you'd like to rest and take your time, it's a great option.  

    Feel free to come back if I can help you with any other questions.

    Until then, I wish you a MAGICAL vacation!
