Disney's BoardWalk Villas Transport

Because of the resorts close proximity to Epcot, its obviously very easy to pop into Epcot. You can also take the monorail from the front of Epcot through to the Magic Kingdom and on to its surrounding resort areas. A boat service also operates to take guests into Epcot's rear entrance and Hollywood Studios.

The only parks you cant get to via water taxi are Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom and the water parks. Busses operate from the resort regularly and depart to all Disney parks and Downtown Disney.

You will be provided with a complete transportation map when you check in  which gives you instructions on how to get to all the different areas on Disney property. To get to the different areas you'll just need to make sure you board the right bus. They display their destination clearly on top, however if you are unsure you can always ask the driver or a cast member. 

The Disney bus transportation system is one of the easiest ways of getting around. Busses depart from the resort to all the parks regularly and are completely free to use at any time. The bus services generally stop running once the parks close, and tend to run for an hour either side of the park hours. During extra magic hours they will run slightly longer.
