Friendship Boat Service to Epcot temporarily unavailable due to Skyliner construction

Nov 26, 2018 in "Friendship Cruisers"

Posted: Monday November 26, 2018 10:23am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

Friendship boat service to and from Epcot will be unavailable for a few weeks this fall.

Beginning November 28 2018, construction for Disney Skyliner around the International Gateway area, will mean that the boat service will not be available. The work is expected to last through to early December 2018. Bus transportation will be available for resort hotel guests, and the pedestrian walkways will remain available, as will the International Gateway entrance to Epcot.

During the work, Friendship boats will still be available from the Epcot area resort hotels to Disney's Hollywood Studios.

The Disney Skyliner transportation system will open in late 2019.

At least it wasn't rushed, those things aren't the speediest.

Cue an appropriately creepy rendition of "The Love Boat" theme...

Interesting parallel with my family. We were all conceived on the Friendship boats.

You just rained on the fuss and whine parade. I am forever indebted.

Times will be altered (especially last boat - keep an eye on this) but it’s looking like boats will run. The project window is also shorter. Starts tomorrow, lasts a week or so at the moment.

It was a joke based on all of the complaining about how far of a walk it is from the DHS bus stops to the front gate. Maybe they need a boat from the bus stops to the gates.

I'd rather not dredge up those memories, thank you very much. :(
