    Question Hess Station?

    I've heard that there is a Hess Station across from the Boardwalk, how easy is it to get to from the Beach Club? Too far to walk...? any advice would be great, thanks!

    It's literally less than 1/4 mile from the turnaround at the entrance to the Boardwalk and if you're walking to the Boardwalk from the beach club add another 1/4 mile or so. Pretty close.


    Here's a link to Google Maps:

    Just walk over to the Boardwalk, go through the lobby, come out front and head left.

    Agreed...cut through Boardwalk. In fact, I'm not 100% sure there is a pedestrian walkway under the waterway.

    Walt Disney World property is not ideally set up for pedestrians

    There appears to be a walkway to the spot where you need to cross the street, looks do-able to me

    I should've mentioned on the map that the route was just for driving and estimating the distance, not for walking as Google hasn't mapped the walkways. However, you can see in the satelite view some of the walkway options back and forth. And then I'd personally take my chances and jaywalk to the station... but that's a personal choice.

    Also, if you've walked from the parking lot of the boardwalk in or out before, it's really not that far.

    There are definitely walkways in the area...what I was referring to was walking along Epcot Hotels Blvd. from the Beach Club, which travels under the waterway between Crescent Lake and Epcot. I don't believe there is a walkway there, but I can't verify until next month.

    You would have to walk to the Boardwalk Inn - but you may not have to cut through the building at all...you might be able to take a left when you reach the end of BWI and go around the building, but on the other side looks like an access road for maintenance vehicles, so I'm not sure.

    Walk around Crescent Lake, over the bridge where the water goes to Epcot, past Seabreeze Point, to the Boardwalk. At the Boardwalk, look for the grassy area between the buildings, next to Flying Fish and make a left. Back there is a set of outdoor stairs that take you up to the Boardwalk Inn's front entrance where the Valet Parking and bell service stands are. You never have to actually enter the Boardwalk Inn. Then you can follow the sidewalk down the right (as you are now facing it) side of the driveway to Epcot Resorts Blvd.

    There is boat service between Beach Club and Boardwalk if you want to save some walking, though I'm not sure if it is direct between the two or if it stops at Swan/Dolphin or Epcot first.

    It is going to be quite a hike but doable. If you want to get a good idea of how far check out google maps. The hess is on Buena Vista Drive just south east of the boardwalk, very close to the visitor's parking at the Boardwalk.

    Probably to stock up on snacks and drinks and stuff. Since it's on Disney property, I wonder if the prices of their snacks are as overpriced as the snacks in the parks....
