    Yes you can! It's about a 15 minute boat ride.:)

    The ride is about 15 minutes, and goes from BC/YC to S/D, to studios. In about 15-20 min, you can also walk!

    Love the Epcot resort loop!

    It's not really far at all, and actually it's faster to walk instead of taking the boat.

    We've done both, walked from DHS and used boat which drops off in front of YC. Both are fun. On our walking excursion, we stopped to look around BWI along the way.

    We check in at Yacht Club tomorrow and I can't wait to be able to walk to DHS or take the boat if we feel like it.

    Boats are fun and easy on your feet, if your tired from a long day in the park. We would usually walk to DS in the AM, it's faster to walk. Walking took us about 15min.

    Boats seemed to come about 20-25min, and the ride takes about 15min. If we were unlucky, we would wait about 20min for a boat and then 15 to be dropped off at the YC. Sometimes we would have to wait for a second boat at DS closing time.

    Do children need to get out of their strollers when getting on/off this boat ride?

    Go over to BW and there is a path from the BW to HS. It's signifcantly longer than the walk from BC to Epcot though.

    When you leave Hollywood Studios look to the left and you'll see the waterway. On the left side of the waterway is the boat dock if you decide to take the boat. The boat will stop first at the Swan & Dolphin, then the Yacht & Beach Club, then the Boardwalk Inn and finally Epcot. It will take the reverse route back to the Studio.

    On the right side of the waterway is a paved path. You'll see the sign. Follow that path and it will take you to the Boardwalk/Beach & Yacht Club/Swan & Dolphin.

    I concur that it is typically quicker to walk that path than it is to take the boat.

    The sidewalk to the Epcot resorts is very pleasant. As already mentioned, as you leave DHS, head to the left, keeping the canal directly on your left. Walk around the end of the canal, towards the parking lot...stay to the left, with the lot on your right. You will walk a little ways, and then see a small sign directing you to Boardwalk. You will go down a very small slope, and keep on trucking!! It will take you less than 20 mins to get to YC/BC. When you get to the end of the sidewalk, you can go right, into BW, or left. Go left, up the incline, then go right. Right will take you towards YC/BC and Beaches and Cream. Left will take you to the S/D.

    Yes! You can! And I also think you can take that same boat to EPCOt - you really don't have to though since the walk is less than 5 mins!

    Have a great trip!!

    We decided to walk from DHS to BC on the day we did all four parks in one day.....not the smartest decision we've ever made, but the walk is totally doable. One piece of advice.....the walk goes by much quicker if you have a Frozen Coke to drink along the way! :)

    The walk IS quicker than the boat. We beat the boat back to BC in the July heat, even with a quick detour at BW. I was thankful our room was close to the quiet pool at BC....it was a quick walk from the bridge between BC and BW to our room.

    Love the walk from YC to DHS! I was there in December, and it was very nice strolling weather.
