    We're booked to stay at Art of Animation. I plan to book a breakfast at BC's Cape May Cafe. Would it be easier to get to BC on a day we go to Epcot or HS? Can we take a bus to either of these parks then walk over to BC? Or bus from AA to DD then bus to BC?

    Hi Edie,

    I can't wait to see the new Art of Animation resort. You must be so excited for your upcoming trip.

    Your best route to the Beach Club from AoA depends a bit on what time your reservation is and whether you have park hopper tickets.

    You could take a bus from AoA to Disney's Hollywood Studios. From there you could either take a boat ride or walk to the Beach Club. The boats will usually not run until about an hour before park opening time. The walk would take about 20 minutes over flat terrain. You can do this without actually entering the DHS park.

    You could also take a bus to Epcot, but to get from Epcot to the BC, you have to actually enter the park (using a park admission), walk all the way through the park, and out the back International Gateway. The Beach Club is just a few steps beyond the Gateway. This would also take about 20 minutes on foot. Also, for this plan to work, Epcot has to actually be open.

    If I were doing this using Disney transportation, I'd go to DHS and transfer there to the BC.

    But personally, I think the easiest thing to do would be to take a cab. The Bell Services desk at AoA will be happy to call one for you. A taxi would go directly from the AoA to the front of the Beach Club. While there obviously would be a fee for this (somewhere in the neighborhood of $10-15), you would probably save at least half an hour in travel time.
