    We have booked the Beach Club hotel for next year. Can you tell us the standard opening hours of the pools? And how many bus stops the Beach Club picks up from / drops off to? Finally, can you get the bus at Beach Club to Hollywood Studios and back?

    chEARs Lucy!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I am staying at Disney's Beach Club Villas right now, so your question is very timely!

    I just got off the phone with a delightful Cast Member, who spilled all the info about pool times and bus stops! First, pool hours are subject to change, depending on weather and time of yEAR. Today, the pools are open from 9:00 am to 11:00 pm, but might close secondary to someone named Dorian (!) approaching. A quick call to the Front Desk will give you the current hours during your stay.

    There is only one bus stop for Disney's Beach Club Resort Guests. It may stop next door at Disney's Yacht Club Resort, but other than that, you will have a straight shot to your destination. Speaking of destinations, there is a bus that goes directly from the Resort to Disney's Hollywood Studios. My favorite thing about this Resort is its location! You are a quick boat ride away from the Planet of Batuu, and its only about a 15-minute walk. Depending on when you arrive, the brand-new Disney Skyliner will be up and running, and then you can soar to Toy Story Land too!

    Lucy, if you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to come back. I wish you a magical vacation!
