    Hi,
    I am thinking about doing dinner at the Boardwalk this year and was wondering how is the travel from Hollywood Studios to the Captain's Grille? And any thoughts on the Captain's Grille in general? Thanks so much!

    You can either walk from HS to the boardwalk area or take the boat. The boat does make stops at the Swan/Dolphin, Yacht/Beach Club and the Boardwalk then on to Epcot.

    We've had breakfast at Captain's Grille and really enjoyed it. It doesn't have the typical "Disney magic feel" but it is a really nice resort and the theming is great.

    Thank you Melanie, actually I don't mind not doing the Disney feel all the time I prefer some relaxation. My son is 14 and sometimes the character meals the food feels rushed so I appreciate it. Thank you again!

    If you like seafood their crab legs are wonderful. We enjoy the boat ride...but do allow a little time..it doesn't go too fast but it gives you a chance to unwind and relax. We eat there each year! Hope you have a great trip!

    As the PPs said, you can either take the boat or walk from DHS to YC. If you walk, it's about 1.3 miles. if you take the boat, I'd budget about 35 minutes. It probably won't take that long, but just in case you miss the boat and have to wait for the next one. The boat goes from DHS to S/D and then to YC.

    In terms of the Epcot area resorts, there are several pretty good options. If you're interested in a Signature, I would consider trying Flying Fish. Otherwise, there is also Big River Grille and ESPN Club (I haven't tried either). I've had dinner at Captain's Grille once and it fell into the "one-and-done" category. The food was meh, the service was lacking, and it was loud inside the restaurant. if you do go, be sure you're not seated anywhere from where you can see the kitchen door. It was not a very relaxing dinner.
