Disney World Friendship Boats Closing for Refurbishment in May

Disney World Friendship Boats Closing for Refurbishment in May

Better get those rides in soon because the Disney World Friendship Boats are closing for refurbishment in May.  If you aren’t familiar with the Friendship Boats, they are the free transportation service between Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Epcot, and the surrounding Walt Disney World Resorts including: Swan and Dolphin, Disney’s Yacht and Beach Club Resorts and Disney Boardwalk Inn.

The Friendship Boats will close on May 7, 2018 for refurbishment while work is done on the bridge located at the Swan and Dolphin Hotel.  The pedestrian path over the bridge will remain open, but he waterway will be closed, meaning you’ll have 1 of 2 options:  1. Walk to Epcot or Hollywood Studios or 2. Take one of the Disney Buses which will remain in service.

UPDATE: The Friendship Boats will be down until May 26.  We also have some photos of the construction work on the Friendship Boats Dock and the Bridge leading to the Swan and Dolphin Resorts.

Check out the Full List of Disney World Refurbishments and Ride Closures to see what else is being worked on.
