    How long is the walk from the Dolphin to Epcot - well, specifically to the Garden Grill? We've got a 5:10 priority seating and will be arriving at Disney on the same day. I'm trying to figure out what time we need to be heading out of the hotel.

    If you take the boat at international gateway in EC, it is about 5 minutes. It is a very relaxing break and a nice view.

    I would say about 15-20 minutes to walk from Dolphin to the World Showcase entrance. Then when you get there, it may depend on the size of the line. They don't generally have too many people checking bags and such and sometimes the line backs up.

    Since you should check in for your PSs about 5 minutes in advance, I'd leave about 30 minutes prior to your PS just to be on the safe side.

    GOOD LUCK!

    Our PS is for 5:10 - no bags to check at the entrance - and we were planning on leaving around 4:30 - so looks like we'll have plenty of time. Thanks everyone!

    CRSNDSNY, I'm glad you have that photo in your signature line. I had wondered what time of day that lightpost cast a shadow of the Mickey head...now, I know! ;) :D :wave2:

    Seeing that after finding another hard to find Hidden Mickey near the Astro Orbiter was the HIGHLIGHT of our day! The icing on the cake! I really hope you get to see this great shadow! :teeth: DH and I have a blast looking for these!

    It only took us 10 minutes from the Swan to Epcot's World Showcase. We went across the Boardwalk, which is faster than walking along the YC/BC side. It will take a few minutes longer from the Dolphin, maybe more if your room is on one of the far wings. It will take much longer to take the boat from S/D to Epcot because they will make two stops. It could be 20 minutes if a lot of people are getting on and off.
