Walking around the resorts/7 seas lagoon

Does anyone know if you can walk around the 7 seas lagoon? From the Contemporary to the Poly and onto the GF? I remember seeing a pathway from the GF to the MK, but do all 3 resorts really connect?

TIA!

No they don't.

You can walk from GF to the Polynesian to the TTC, and you can walk from Contemporary to Magic Kingdom, but that's it.

There is a canal with no bridge seperating GF from Magic Kingdom, and there are no pathways connecting TTC to the Contemporary.

There are actually 2 canals between GF and MK. One is a tiny creek, and the other one is a little larger and is where the EWP barges are stored during the day. Neither has a bridge.

There is the canal between the 7 Seas Lagoon and Bay Lake that separates CR from the TTC. World Drive goes under this canal, but there is no bridge over the canal.

Previous posters included the walkways. The one walkway that goes west from MK toward GF does indeed dead end, right at the EWP canal. If you look at this on a satellite photo (like Google Maps has), you'll see that there is an identically sized pathway on the other side of the canal going most of the way toward GF that looks unfinished (basically a dusty path instead of brick or concrete). It's as though they intended to put bridges there and connect MK and GF with that pathway, but quit. Too bad, IMHO. It's probably used now as a service road to get to that section of monorail tracks.

When the 25th Anniversary "Walk Around the World" pathway stones were first marketed, they talked about "taking a delightful stroll around Seven Seas Lagoon reliving the memories of all our visitors" (Completely paraphrased). So there apparently at one time was Blue Sky plans to create a walkway that encircled all of Bay Lake.

Thanks for the responses.

I'm constantly on the look out for new places to walk around

Don't forget the walkway from the Polynesian to the Grand Floridian you also walk by the Wedding Pavilion.

1) It really doesn't "deadend".
2) It just runs into the water.
