Yup! We walked from YC to DHS in exactly 17 minutes, and that was with our kids and their tiny legs.

Yes you can walk. It took us about 20 minutes with a double stroller..but without the kiddos it is just a 15 minute walk. We found it much quicker to walk than use the boats most of the time.

I'll echo it being faster than the boats, unless a boat is sitting at the dock ready to go.

If you're at Boardwalk it's much faster than taking the boat. The Boat goes Epcot-Boardwalk-YC/BC-Swan/Dolphin-DHS (or at least it did when we stayed there). We just took the boat when we didn't feel like walking, because the walk isn't exactly short either.

The boats take forever...haha...not really but it feels that way! Walking is faster but knowing how much walking you do in parks we opted for the boats!!

Nice easy stroll. But keep you're eyes open. We met a little slithering friend on the path one morning. DD nearly had a stroke!!

Thanks for the info. It doesn't really change anything for my immediate plans, but good to know. I would love to try BC this October, but I don't think it will be part of the plan right now.
