Friendship Boats


Does anyone know when/if the friendship boats stop running at night? I’m planning on touring Mexico-America and then hoping to hop the boat back to Mexico for dinner and Illuminations.


I believe they stopped running the boats, on that side of WS, last year.


Oh, too bad. I wanted to do that, too. The Disney website does indicate they’re operational (although I know that the website is not always accurate). They don’t list any hours of operation or departure times, but do show them under “Water Transportation” on the EPCOT map.


I vaguely remember seeing a sign for last departure 7pm…


That seems like a reasonable time to clear out the lagoon before fireworks! May just have to hoof it back on foot and earn myself an extra margarita!


I just rode one today! Last boat is 9:30pm


There was a refurbishment going on with them. I don’t believe they stopped for forever though I’m not sure if they have resumed/if refurb is complete.


Resort/DHS boats from International Gateway stop at 9:30 PM (park close) due to gondola cable installation. They’re supposed to resume normal operation later this month.

The World Showcase boat runs until 7:30 PM.
