    Where is the best place to park for World Showcase? Is the ferry dock inside or outside Hollywood Studios? Is there a fee to park at Boardwalk? Thank you.

    Hi Sheila! Thank you for contacting us with your Disney questions. I have always believed that the more I know before I go makes for a better vacation!

    If you are driving a car then you will want to park at Epcot to reach the World Showcase. Although this is at the far end of the park it is the best way to go so you are not worried about park hours and getting back to your car without an issue.

    Other choices include taking a taxi to one of the World Showcase resorts such as Yacht and Beach Club or the Boardwalk resorts. You can then walk into the World Showcase through the International Gateway entrance to Epcot. At the end of the day you can catch a taxi back from these same resorts. Parking is not allowed at these resorts except for their own guests or those who have dining reservations. Parking on your own is not an option.

    You can park at Hollywood Studios but that is risky. You would have to make sure that park does not close before Epcot as if it did you would not be able to return there using Disney transportation. The Hollywood Studios boat dock is located outside of the park. These Friendship boats will take you back and forth to the Swan and Dolphin resorts, the Yacht and Beach and Boardwalk resorts, as well as Epcot International Gateway.

    Hope this helps with your planning for your Epcot day!
