    Is there any transportation around World Showcase, or is it strictly walking?

    Hi, Tammy!

    World Showcase in Epcot extends for approximately about a mile around World Showcase Lagoon. While there is no transportation between the countries, Friendship Boats are available to bring you from one side of the lake to the other.

    These boats run between World Showcase ports as well as from the International Gateway to Disney's BoardWalk.

    These boats depart from four landings around the World Showcase Lagoon. One boat goes back and forth between Mexico and Germany, one boat travels between Canada and Morocco. While these boats do not necessarily cut down on the time spent moving between countries (waiting for the boat, etc.), the convenience and comfort might be worth the extra queue.

    Have a relaxing trip!

    See you later, celebrator,
