    At WL, can you boat to MK and then grab the monorail to Epcot - w/o a park hopper? Thx!

    Sure, but you need to transfer at the TTC to the Epcot monorail. It could be a lot longer than taking the bus or driving.

    You could, as it doesn't require park entrance to hop on the monorail at MK. But, you could also just boat to CR and pick up the monorail there. You would still need to transfer at TTC to the Epcot monorail.

    Yes, all of the transportation is outside the theme parks. If you take the boat to the Contemporary, you'll have to walk to the main building and go up to the 4th floor to take the monorail, then it's one stop to the TTC. If you go to MK, you'll need to go over to your left to the monorail station, then it's two stops to the TTC (including stopping at the monorail).

    If you're looking for the quickest way, it's probably the bus. The boat to the Contemporary is only about half the time as the one to MK, but the walk to the monorail is probably twice as long as the walk at MK.

    We like using different routes, just to see everything, so have fun deciding.

    Sure. I did it once.

    And then realized it was actually faster to just take the bus to Epcot so that's what I did after riding the monorail.

    I like doing this route from time to time for a change and for fun coming back from Epcot. Its fun to ride the monorail and to walk through CR to get the boat to WL. Unless you have time to kill for some reason I don't like taking this route going to Epoct. I'm to much in a rush to get there. Especially for rope drop.

    yes you can. We did this several times in August when we stayed at WL.
