If you are staying at one of the Epcot Resort Hotels then the most relaxing way to travel to Epcot is by boat. The Epcot resort hotels are close enough to walk to the World Showcase Entrance to the park, but you may want to experience this leisurely way to arrive. Epcot is not know as Every Person Comes Out Tired for nothing! Cutting down on that walking time from your hotel is a good idea to save your energy for the actual park.
All of the boats are easily accessible for both wheelchairs and electric scooters.

At the end of the day when you want to return to your hotel then you can just take the boat back. Sometimes it is a lot quicker to walk though! If you leave just after the fireworks then expect that a lot of guests are going to have exactly the same idea as you and the lines for the boats are pretty long. But at short wait could save what will probably be very tired feet!
Remember too that if you want to travel from the Epcot resorts to Disney Hollywood Studios then the most convenient way is to take the boat. The boats to Epcot and Disney Hollywood Studios are not just for the resort guests. They are open to anyone with a Disney ticket and can be a relaxing way to travel from the Boardwalk to the parks and back.
Not many people know that you can also walk from the Boardwalk and Epcot resorts to Disney Hollywood Studios. The walk is alongside the water and takes around 15 to 20 minutes from the Boardwalk.
When arriving at the Transport and Ticketing Center on the way to Magic Kingdom most Disney guests head straight for the monorail. But there is another way – you can travel across the Seven Seas Lagoon by boat. Theme park guests can catch the boat from the TTC to the Magic Kingdom. Just turn to your left of the ticket booths when you arrive at the Transport and Ticket Center and you will see the boat dock. Sometimes it can be quicker to get the boat than the monorail. It just depends upon the wait in line for the monorail and how close the boat is to the dock. I often prefer to travel by boat to Magic Kingdom, particularly at busy times when the wait to shuffle your way around the line for the monorail can seem so frustrating when all you want to do is get to the Magic Kingdom!
There are also smaller boats from each of the Disney Monorail Hotels if you want a change from the monorail. The resort boats do not hold that many guests and circle round from the Magic Kingdom, The Grand Floridian and then The Polynesian Resort. The best way to get from the Walt Disney World Wilderness Lodge Resort is by boat. Even if you are not a guest there if you have time it can be a fun thing to take the boat to the resort and look at this amazing hotel or perhaps eat at the very popular Artist’s Point restaurant.
