    55 days! We arrive at MCO on 4/8 at 9AM. ME to BEACH CLUB!!! 2 questions - can we make a 10:50 ADR Cape May Cafe that morning? Also, 1st time at Beach Club, DS almost 3...what is a not miss at resort? Heard something about a campfire? Fun? Thank You

    Hi Amanda!

    Congratulations on your upcoming visit! You have chosen a great resort! I think that a reservation to Cape May Cafe at 10:50 will be cutting it too close if you arrive at 9:00. I think that you have to account for any airport delays. Additionally, the ride from MCO to the Beach Club Resort can take up to 45 minutes and if the Magical Express Bus gets the morning traffic, it may take longer. Lastly, keep in mind that the Magical Express Bus also has to drop off guests at the Yacht Club located next door so that may delay your arrival as well.

    As for the "Must-Dos", the Beach Club has many recreational activities available to its guests. Amongst my favorites is the "movies under the stars" and the campfire. These are usually held beachside, starting at about 6:00 p.m. You may want to check the daily activities flyer which will be given to you upon check-in for more accurate time and the list of movies scheduled for the week. The campfire usually come with marshmallow roasting, so you don't want to miss it! For me, the best feature of the Beach Club is its close proximity to Epcot's International Gateway Entrance! You can just stroll on over to Epcot to have dinner and catch the Illuminations Fireworks Show. I also love exploring the nearby Boardwalk Bakery and Pizzeria!
