    To get from Epcot to the Studios you can go out through International Gateway (by England) and take a boat or walk. Not sure if you go out the main entrance of Epcot if there is a bus to another park or not. We just walk.
    To go from the Studios to GF you would have to get a bus at the entrance to the Studios. There would be one that goes to the GF. The same for GF to AK, you would have to get a bus at the GF for Animal Kingdom. From AK to MK you would have to take a resort bus (not sure if there are park to park buses) for any of the monorail hotels and then take the monorail.

    There is a bus that goes from the main entrance of EPCOT to the DHS. There is a bus that goes from the AK to the TTC (you have to take monorail or ferry from TTC to the MK). I'm not sure where the bus stops are located at the AK but I'd consider getting on the bus to the Contemporary, TTC or AKL. Whichever bus comes first. This assumes you can see multiple bus stops. This advice make the most sense if you want to park hop during off peak hours.

    First of all - take a deeeeeeeep breath. It is a vacation.

    1. How do I get from Epcot to DHS - the boat ride is wonderful; highly recommend it.

    2. How do I go from DHS to the GF - you can take the bus for your resort. All the resorts run buses to the parks.

    3. How do I go from the GF to AK - same thing; take the bus from your resort. The bus does make one stop to one of the water parks as well, but I think it stops at AK first.

    4. How do I go from AK to MK - the buses do not go from park to park, so you would need to go back to a resort. The quickest was mentioned earlier, take the bus to CR and then walk over to MK.

    Other more leisurely things to do - You can take the monorail and do the loop, stop at each of the resorts, and then get out at the TTC and go over to Epcot. You can take the water taxi from DHS and stop at Yacht Club/Beach Club/Boardwalk/Swan/Dolphin and then walk over to Epcot from the Boardwalk. You can take the bus from one of the parks to the POR or POFQ and then take the water taxi to DTD. There are buses at DTD that take you back to your resort.

    My new fav is taking the motor ferry from MK over to Wilderness Lodge for dinner.

    The bolded part is incorrect. There are direct buses between the parks, just none that go directly to MK. There are, however, buses between AK and Epcot, AK and DHS, and Epcot and DHS.

    We are trying to take the Friendship boat from Epcot to HS.

    Is it better to wait for on at either Morocco or Germany or is it better to just walk to the Beach Club and catch one there?

    About how much time should I allow for this?:goodvibes

    The boat from Morocco and Germany just go around World showcase with a stop over at future world.

    The boat to HS is right outside the international gateway exit.

    You can also take taxis from the parks to resorts and from the resorts to the parks. This is not the cheapest alternative, but it is probably the fastest. I would say that most trips would cost about $15. If you're heading to the MK, you can ask to be taken to the CR instead, otherwise the taxi will take you to the TTC.

    For the Friendship boats, exit Epcot via the International Gateway (between UK and France) and then catch the boat. It goes to the Boardwalk, then the Yacht & Beach, then the Swan & Dolphin, and then to DHS. I think it takes about 30 minutes (not quite sure about this).

    There are buses that run between most of the parks. The buses that go to the MK (from DHS and AK) go to the TTC, where you either take the monorail or ferry over to MK. The monorail connects MK and Epcot.

    IF you need to go between Epcot and DHS, you can either walk (takes about 20-25 mins) or take the boat that leaves from outside Epcot's backdoor...International Gateway. The boat takes about 25 mins once it leaves the dock. Or you can take a bus to DHS if you are at the front of Epcot.

    So...to get to the GF from DHS? Take the GF bus. From the GF to AK?? Again, take the bus to AK. To get from AK back to MK...take the MK bus, or better yet, take the bus to the CR and then walk over to the MK..takes about 8 mins.
