WDW: Walking to Disney’s Hollywood Studios from Epcot Resorts (Pictures)

The walk from the Epcot Resorts to Disney’s Hollywood Studios travels along the water way the Friendship Boats take but now due to construction instead of staying along the shore of water it turns and snakes through corridor of construction fences then through the bus stops and another set of construction fences before finally reaching the park. Due to the work and path the walk is slightly longer than before both in distance and time thanks to the crowding, especially at park closing.  As my week at Walt Disney World came to an end it appeared they were close to opening a new section of walkway to make this walk slightly better.  Here are some pictures from my first walk to the park on Tuesday December 3, 2018.  The new Bus stops and walking path look to be opening in early 2019.  The Disney Skyliner is scheduled to open later in 2019.

As you walk along the water the first set of fences is on your left for the Disney Skyliner turn station. This will be the Epcot line that runs to the Riviera and ends at the Caribbean Beach Resort.

Looking under overpass for Buena Vista Drive as I continued toward the park. No change in this part of the trip.

Across the lake you can see the entrance to the park. The original path followed the water most of the way there.

Here you can see construction walls have blocked the original path. So instead of continuing along the water you are forced to turn to the left and walk through a series of construction fences.

Here you can see some of the corridor as I approach it.

There are signs along the walkway. You have no real choice of direction.. either continue forward or turn around but I guess it reassures you that you are taking the correct path even though you are walking away from the entrance at this point.

You pass through the temporary bus stop area. At this hour of the morning it is a pleasant walk. At park closing this is a traffic jam. These two stops furthest from the park are Art of Animation and Pop Century so there are a lot of guests out here.

Now that you have merged with the bus guests you enter another corridor of construction fences.

This is a wider one but at night is wall to wall guests.

Handicap parking comes up on your left as you continue walking.

It looks like they have a second set of walls up around the stations and this wider walkway will be opening soon.

Security and the entrance have not changed yet.. but eventually the security area will be redone/expanded.
