As Walt Disney World’s Hollywood Studios gets ready for Star Wars weekends opening weekend, here’s some often-requested information on the walking path between Hollywood Studios and the Epcot Resort Area.
Just outside the main gate of Hollywood Studios and past the bus lines there is a walking path that will take you to the Epcot resorts: the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin, Yacht and Beach Club, and the Boardwalk. This path, when combined with the walkways around the Epcot resorts, will also allow you to walk to Epcot if you choose. Total trip distance from Hollywood Studios to the resorts is just under a mile and Hollywood Studios to Epcot is around 1.2 miles. The walk takes between 15 and 20 minutes at a relaxed pace. When Hollywood Studios is crowded and boats are hard to come by, this path provides a fairly quick (often quicker than the boats anyway) and pleasant walk to the resorts. Many Hollywood Studios guests take a break from the heat and crowds at Star Wars Weekends at the Epcot Resorts restaurants like Beaches and Cream and Cape May Cafe and use this path to get there.
