Fantasia Gardens to Epcot

Part of this year's trip will include mini-golf, which is something we have never done on a WDW trip. I am looking at the maps and trying to figure out if my plan for that day is feasible:

Breakfast at Epcot
Walk over to Fantasia Gardens late morning
Walk over to Beaches and Cream for an afternoon ADR
Back over to Epcot for the evening

From looking at the map, it seems to be a reasonable walk for us, However, I do not know if there is a better way to achieve our plans for the day. Any suggestions would be so appreciated. We are staying at POP, so we have to head to one of the parks first no matter what.

I would think that is quite feasible. The mini golf is right across the road from the Swan so easily accessible by foot from the back entrance of Epcot and the boardwalk area.

I think you'll be fine walking. We've walked from Epcot to HS and I don't think Fantasia Gardens would be any farther of a walk.
Actually, come to think of it, we walked by it once. Took a wrong turn at night walking from HS to Epcot laugh it wasn't a bad walk even with getting lost!

You can definitely walk it, but if you end up doing this excursion during a particularly hot day, use the friendship boats to get from EPCOT to the Swan/Dolphin stop and walk from there. The walk is about a mile and there isn't a ton of shade, especially between swan/dolphin and Fantasia Gardens. I made Benn walk it one time mid-day and he wasn't very happy with me. Oops. laugh
