With the Walt Disney World Resort starting to reopen, transportation has slowly resumed operations as well. Disney’s Friendship Boats will soon join the other transportation options available to guests. The boats will resume service starting July 29.

Right now the main forms of transportation at Disney World are buses, the monorail, and ferries. The Disney Skyliner will resume operations on July 15th.

The Friendship Boats travel through Crescent Lake between EPCOT and Disney’s Hollywood Studios. They offer transportation to guests at Disney’s Beach & Yacht Club as well as Disney’s BoardWalk. The DVC components of these resorts have been open since June 22.

The rest of Disney’s Beach & Yacht Clubs will open on August 24, with the rest of the BoardWalk opening on October 1.

An update to Disney’s Beach Club Villas and Disney’s BoardWalk Villas on the Disney’s Experience Updates website page states: “Beginning the week of July 29, boat transportation will be available to EPCOT and Disney’s Hollywood Studios.”

Just like other transportation at Disney World, the Friendship Boats will operate under limited capacity as well as with new health and safety measures.
