May be a stupid question... can you walk from All Star Music to Hollywood Studios?

I got my customized maps in the mail today, and we're staying at the All Star Music resort. I KNOW the map can be VERY deceiving when it comes to how far apart things are but it really makes it look like you can walk from our hotel to Hollywood Studios and I don't remember you being able to walk ANYWHERE from the All Star hotels (that's where we always stayed when I was a kid, I haven't been in about 15 years) and so I was just wondering!

You're right, the map is very deceiving. The All Stars are at least a few miles from the Studios, and there are no walking paths. You'd be walking on the shoulder of a highway.

I agree with the PP - in fact AK is the closest park to the All Stars and you really couldn't walk there either. It's all roads and walkingwise would be quite a distance.

Our new favorite thing to do (between Disney trips) is posting DHs photos on foap - he's under guanojoe (how funny is that?!)

I agree with everyone. Take the bus.

That walk would take a very, very looooong time, and would have you crossing some very large roads. It would be dangerous.

Disney is fantastic for providing us with buses to get us everywhere. Enjoy your stay at All Star Music. This was the very first resort we ever stayed at on Disney property. You never forget your first resort. We loved it!

The only parks you can walk to in Wdw are Epcot and DHS from the Epcot resorts.
