Disney Boat Transportation

Getting around Walt Disney World can be somewhat of a hassle – but also a pleasure if you can take advantage of one of their (free!) water transport systems.

Most of the water boats or ferries leave in 15 or 30-minute intervals, making loops around different areas and parks.

Water transportation to and from the Magic Kingdom across the Seven Seas Lagoon and Bay Lake is available from these Disney resorts: Grand Floridian, Contemporary, Fort Wilderness, Polynesian, Wilderness Lodge, and the Villas at Wilderness Lodge.

There are also ferryboats that connect the Magic Kingdom with the Transportation and Ticket center.

Epcot and Hollywood Studios are both accessible on the same water transport loop, and include transportation to and from the Boardwalk Inn, Boardwalk Villas, Beach Club Resort, Beach Club Villas, Yacht Club Resort, and the Swan and Dolphin hotels.

Disney Boat

Finally, there is a ferryboat that takes guests to Downtown Disney from the French Quarter and Riverside areas of Port Orleans Resort, Old Key West Resort, and Saratoga Springs Resort and Spa.

Inclement Weather

The boats stop operating in inclement weather, and you are not able to bring luggage on the boats, so plan accordingly.

The boat rides are not only a good alternative to get to the parks, but also can be a relaxing trip if you need some quiet time – like nap time!

The Green Route from the Magic Kingdom is known to be the most scenic transportation boat ride.

Not only can you get from resort to park, but in Epcot the Friendships Boats cruise across the World Showcase Lagoon and depart from two different stops in the World Showcase on the border of Future World.

Running every 12 minutes, these boats are a great way to get from one side of Epcot to the other, but you may have to wait in line to board the boat.

Getting water transportation at Walt Disney World is a great option for those who don’t have time constraints, and who want a scenic commute on the routes available.
