    Is the walking pathway from the Boardwalk Villas to Hollywood Studios still available?

    Hi Alexis!

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question! Great news! The walking path from Disney’s BoardWalk Villas to Disney’s Hollywood Studios is open. In fact, this is my preferred route to get to the theme park first thing in the morning.

    Pro Tip: The first 15 minutes after the park opens is often the best time to experience one of the park’s most popular attractions, but arriving even 10 minutes after opening can mean a long wait for that same attraction later in the day. So pack some comfy shoes and enjoy the leisurely stroll! By the time we leave the park later in the day, we are often tired and hot, so if you’ve already hit your steps for the day, you can take the friendship boat back, or hop the Disney Skyliner to Epcot to enjoy a breezy bird’s eye view of the parks.

    Because everything is more fun when it’s a competition, we once raced my parents back to Disney's BoardWalk from Disney’s Hollywood Studios. My parents took the boat, while we walked. While my parents’ trip was decidedly more relaxing, we beat them to Disney's BoardWalk boat dock with 10 minutes to spare. Plus, with all that walking, you'll have room for some goodies from the BoardWalk Bakery!

    I hope this helps with your planning, Alexis! Please let me know if you have any additional questions, we love talking Disney and are here to help!

    Have a Magical Day!
