Posts from Temporary Home- Getting from BC/YC to DHS
I just looked at the other thread and it said I did not have privileges to post there, then I found this! I fell better now. Thanks Dee.
Today's questions, going from BC to DHS, I know the walk is about a mile but if we have a rental car should we drive?
We always take the boat. It's a nice, relaxing ride. I wouldn't drive from BC/YC.
But I thought you cannot get the boat early morning?
How early are you planning on being at HS? I've taken the boat and been there for rope drop with no problem.
Ok cool. Yes want to be there before rope drop
I think the boats start an hour before park open. Definately running in plenty of time to make rope drop. But it is a very pleasant walk, especially early in the morning. Takes us 15- 20 minutes from YC depending on how fast we walk. If a boat is at the dock or just approaching, we take the boat. If we just missed a boat or don't see it, we walk. And in that case we always beat the next boat to HS.
Unless you are lazy like me. Then I'll wait for the boat.
Unfortunately you were the first one I thought of this morning when I was locked out!
Really looking forward to this walk! Thanks for the great tip!
The Friendship boats start running an hour before park opening. But the walk is nice, too. I wouldn't drive, either, it would probably take longer than the boat or the walk.
walk over to the parks - but sometimes take the boat back - if I am tired - now if the line is too long (you won't be getting on the boat) then walk back too - but I generally stay at BWV so it is a much shorter walk from Studios - longer from Epcot.
lots of WDW guests take the boat to get to Epcot.
I'll give the opposing viewpoint. I never have a car there. But if I did, I might drive from BC to DHS. Last time we wanted to get there in the morning, we waited a LONG time for the boat. We probably just missed one. I don't believe in doing a long walk to get to a park in the morning. My feet are going to be hurting and I'm going to be out of energy by late afternoon. I feel that I would wasting energy first thing, and would get tired earlier in the day, if I walked from BC to DHS, or (as other people sometimes ask) I went through the International Gateway and walked to the front of Epcot to get the monorail to MK. I might do a long walk at the end of the day if I had the energy, but definitely wouldn't do it first thing.
we always take the boat. Never tried walking.
