    Best transportation from Pop Century to BoardWalk

    Hi folks,

    first, I really hope my question is in this thread right. If not, I am sorry.

    Now my little question. upon my next WDW vacation this year in October I will stay at the Pop Century Resort. At this vacation I want visit the famous BoardWalk in the morning for the first time.

    Can anybody tell me, which Disney transportation I can use, to get the easiest way from the Pop Century to the BoardWalk in the morning? I am not sure if I must use the bus or a boat and from which Resort I must take off. I know there will be no direct bus from the Pop Century to the Boardwalk. Which Disney resorts are near the Boardwalk area?
    Can anybody give me a tip and help me. That would be great.

    Thank you
    Vanessa

    You can take a bus to any of the Epcot Resorts like Boardwalk, Yacht and Beach, San and Dolphin. If you want to visit after the parks open, you can take your bus to Epcot, then exit at the International Gateway. If you wan tto be there earlier, then you might want to take your resort bus to the park with EMH, then transfer to a Boardwalk bus.

    Thank you NC_WDW_Daddy for your quick reply. That helps me a lot.

    But if I want to take a boat ride to the BoardWalk and the BoardWalk resorts, is it right, that it is the best way to get from the Pop Century to the Hollywood Studios in the morning?
    Can I have then from the Hollywood Studios to the Boardwalk a lazy river ride? Can you or anybody else tell me, at which resorts the "friendship boats" stop? Or is there a boat stop direct at the BoardWalk? I have no idea about that, so I have a lot of questions

    Thanks again for your help!

    I would take a bus to DHS then a friendship boat to the Boardwalk. You'll have to stop at the Swan and Dolphin first, but I believe the boat stops at the Boardwalk before Yacht and Beach on it's way back from DHS. Either way, it would be probably around a 15 minute maximum boat ride.

    +1 for bus to DHS then a friendship boat to the Boardwalk.

    Bus to Epcot then a friendship boat to the Boardwalk from the International Gateway is a lot of walking and if you don't have a park hopper you would have to commit to Epcot admission for the day.

    Thank you. Great tip too. I will have a park hopper. I stay 21 Days at WDW and I think I will have the 21 Day Ultimate Ticket and it has a hopper feature.

    Thanks so much for all your help

    Have a wonderful weekend everybody
