    We're staying onsite and thought of walking to crossroads but is it far from disney pop century and are there any sidewalks? how about if we got the bus to downtown disney first?

    There are NO sidewalks. You cannot walk from Pop to Crossroads without endangering your lives. Please don't try it.

    Get the bus to Downtown Disney and from there it's 10-20 minutes walk depending on your speed. And be VERY careful at the crosswalk in front of the Crossroads.

    Yep, it's an easy walk (although the sidewalk meanders needlessly) from Downtown Disney to Crossroads.

    Pop Century is in an area that is very high traffic and you shouldn't try to walk anywhere outside the grounds of that resort.

    Once you reach Crossroads be extremely alert. There is a crossing walk with a crossing light but it is a heavily traveled area and drivers are simply not careful there. There have been a number of incidents where pedestrians have been struck by cars. :(

    So, all that to say yes you can walk to crossroads from the Marketplace end of DTD. I've done it. :yes: And survived! :D

    Orlando and WDW in general are not designed for walking along the streets. There are sidewalks in the Downtown Disney area, so be very careful!!
