    Hi is there transportation to Disney's Boardwalk area from EPCOT or one of the other parks?

    Hi Carolyn!

    I absolutely love spending time strolling, shopping and dining along Disney's BoardWalk!
    I'm so happy to tell you that it's a very easy place to get to!

    If you're at Epcot Park, it's a short and enjoyable walk. Simply head over to the International Gateway (park entrance/exit located between France and the UK pavilion) and walk out along the water way. Take a left over the little bridge and you're on the BoardWalk - just like that! During an Epcot day, my family loves to pop out to the BoardWalk midday for lunch or even during the evening before we had back to Epcot for IllumiNations. There is also a Friendship boat the leaves from just outside the International Gateway and stops at the BoardWalk Resort if you prefer not to walk the extra distance.

    From Magic Kingdom or Animal Kingdom, simply board a Disney Transportation bus headed for Disney's BoardWalk Resort. Usually, this bus shares stops with the Swan and Dolphin Resorts, Yacht Club and Beach Club. Typically, the actual BoardWalk Resort is the last stop in the area. If you're up for a little added stroll, disembark the bus at the first stop - the Walt Disney World Swan, and enjoy the short walk to the BoardWalk from there. It will save you waiting through the additional bus stops and you'll be enjoying the sights much sooner!

    From Disney's Hollywood Studios, you have two options. You can walk the pathway the whole way to the area (about a 15-20 minute walk depending on your pace) or you can take a Friendship Boat launch. The boat takes about the same amount of time and you can disembark at any of the stops. 

    I hope this information is helpful to you Carolyn!
    If you have additional questions, please don't hesitate to write me back. I'd love to hear from you again.

    Wishing you a simply Magical time at Walt Disney World!
