    Is the walking path between Epcot and Hollywood Studios open? Are guests able to walk between the two parks?

    Hello Sara! Welcome to planDisney! I am glad you brought your question to us today! Many visitors to the Walt Disney World Resort are often surprised to hear that you can walk between EPCOT and Disney's Hollywood Studios! I was actually introduced to this scenic pathway by my fellow planDisney panelist, Betsy! I was amazed by the scenery along the pathway! It was also quite relaxing as you are able to move at your own pace. The landscaping is beautifully done. The walk along the water is particularly peaceful. I found the walkway to be a nice break from the hustle and bustle of moving throughout the parks.

    I was able to confirm with two Disney Cast Members that the walkway is indeed open for Guests to enjoy! Please note, while you can enjoy the walk between the two parks, Park Hopping between two parks during the same day is still not permitted. Keep an eye on the Walt Disney World Resort website or on the Disney Parks Blog to learn when Park Hopping is once again permitted.

    While not the halfway point between the two parks, Disney's Boardwalk does serve as the hub of the pathway. The walk from Disney's Boardwalk to Disney's Hollywood Studios will take you about 15-20 minutes. The walk from Disney's Boardwalk to EPCOT's International Gateway will take about 5 minutes. While you are at the Boardwalk, be sure to enjoy some of the snacks and food! There are many sites and aromas that will lure you in! No regrets enjoying any of them! My favorite is the Pizza Window

    Sara, I hope this information is helpful to your planning! Please come back to visit planDisney!
