    Question Help! We are leaving soon!

    Hi!

    We are leaving really soon!!! Yeah!!!
    We have a family of six and are staying at the Polynesian!
    First time there. We are have the free dining and to keep
    more of cost down we only are getting 2 day tickets. We
    are going to Epcot both days. The last time my husband and
    I went we were teenagers in the 80's.
    My kids have never gone. Anyways to the question I cannot
    get an answer.
    We are having dinner at Biergarten one night and the other night
    at Teppan Edo. We will probably hang out on that side of the
    World Showcase for Illuminations. After the show will the boats
    inside the park be running to the other side of the Showcase.
    I know the kids will be tired and it would be great to get off
    the feet alittle bit.

    Thanks!!
    From the suburbs of Cleveland!
    Sharon

    I am pretty sure the boats are not running because they have to do the Burnout of the ball and move all the barges off of the Lagoon. I could be completely wrong, but I am thinking that the boats are not running

    The boats will not be running, but the walk is not that bad. Wait a few minutes after Illuminations ends to allow the crowd to beign to dissipate, then take a nice stroll on out. A good place to watch Illuminations after dinner at the Biergarten is to your right as you leave Germany in the area between Germany and the Outpost. This area normally does nto fill up early and provides a great view.

    I believe that the boats usually stop at 7PM, so take that into your planning as well. I concur that the walk isn't as far as it seems, and the worst part at that time of night will be the crowds. If you give a little time for the crowds to dissipate, it should be quite a pleasant walk back. Both pavilions are pretty close to the back of the park too, so it shouldn't take too long for the crowds to thin out.

    Are you not going to the Magic Kingdom at all? Because you are staying in a monorail resort and have direct access to the Magic Kingdom. The Boardwalk, Beach and Yacht Club are all Epcot resorts where you can walk directlly to Epcot through the International Gateway. Just wasn't sure if you were aware of that.
    It's kind of fun to do the impossible!
