The fastest way to walk is to go through the pool area, around behind the Beach Club bar to the gate there. Hang an immediate left and follow your nose.
Or you can take the side exit on the opposite side of the hotel on the ground level (same level as the workout room and Camp L'il Rock). This takes you to the boat dock. or you can turn right at the boat dock and walk. The boat ride doesn't save you a lot of time since it just takes you to CityWalk and you'll have a bit of a walk from there.
There is also a shuttle bus, but I have never tried it so I'm not sure how long that takes or where it drops you off.
