    We will be visiting in October 2010. We want to go to MK and TL waterpark. Is the boardwalk inn hotel close to these locations and is it easy to get from the hotel to the parks? Or should we choose a closer hotel?

    Hi, Nicole!    The Boardwalk is located very close to Epcot and Hollywood Studios.   You are even able to walk to these theme parks!    Or, if you prefer, there is convenient boat transportation.

    To get to the Magic Kingdom or Typhoon Lagoon  you will need to take a bus.    There are no resorts within walking distance to Typhoon Lagoon.    If you want to be close to the Magic Kingdom, you could stay at Bay Lake Towers or Contemporary (both within walking distance of Magic Kingdom) or the Polynesian or Grand Floridian are just a quick monorail ride away!

    Although you will need to take a bus from the Boardwalk to Magic Kingdom or Typhoon Lagoon, transportation is pretty convenient and easy to use.   Buses for each location loop around approximately every 20 minutes.    To get detailed information on transportation routes and travel times, go to and use their Transportation Wizard.   Good luck!
