As the Disney World Resort hotels and theme parks continue their phased reopening, Disney’s many transportation systems have reopened generally in-step with the locations they serve.
We originally anticipated the Friendship Boats to reopen today, July 29. But when we checked the boat launches, however, we noticed that they are NOT operating!
We saw signage posted at Disney’s BoardWalk Inn that the Friendship Boats are currently not operating.
The BoardWalk Inn was originally scheduled to reopen on October 1, but that has been delayed indefinitely. We also saw signs posted at Disney’s Swan and Dolphin hotels noting that the boats were not running. Both the Swan and Dolphin hotels reopened today to the general public.
We did not see any boats running today while we visited EPCOT, either! So where could those Friendship Boats be? Before today, Disney World’s website previously indicated that the Friendship Boats would resume the week of July 29.
When we check Disney World’s website now, however, that information is omitted and there is no mention of when the Friendship Boats will resume operation.
So, it looks like we’ll just have to wait and see when the Friendship Boats will come back! With no official word from Disney at this time, we will keep checking on the boat launches to see if we notice any activity in the coming weeks!
