WL to TTC idea

I love Epcot and the Wilderness Lodge, but I don't like buses. It does seem like the bus is the easiest and fastest route from WL to Epcot. If I wanted to avoid buses, some people have mentioned taking either of the boats to MK or the Contemporary, & hopping on the monorail from there, then transferring to the Epcot monorail.

But how about walking? In the few other threads I have found, some people have mentioned walking from WL to the TTC via Timberline Drive to Seven Seas Drive. According to Google, this is a walk of about .7 miles, or 15 minutes. The main drawback to this route is that there's no sidewalk.

In googling around, I also saw that if you take W. Wilderness Rd. to Topiary Ln., it's only .5 miles, or 10 minutes.

As far as I can tell, some of the farthest buildings at the Poly are a ten minute walk from the TTC. Again, I know that there's no sidewalk, but I walk around my neighborhood all the time & it doesn't have sidewalks, and the shoulders at WDW seem to be very well maintained. Is there any good reason not to try this?

Just take the boat. The small boat goes to CR from WL and is a very short ride. (The whole loop is WL/CR/FW.) You can't walk where there are no sidewalks. It's not safe and security will pick you up.

Yes security will come pick you up. Take the boat or as you said...the bus is the easiest/quickest so that is actually your best bet. If you are going to EC more than one day bus it the day you want to be there for rope drop and boat it another day for a relaxing trip.
