    Deciding between staying at the Animal Kindgom Lodge or Beach Club Resorts. Would like to stay where we would have the sortest bus ride to the Magic Kingdom. Which would you recommend?

    Hi Cynthia,

    If your goal is to be located closest to the Magic Kingdom, you'll want to choose either the Polynesian or the Contemporary. That being said, between the two that you have mentioned, the Beach Club is closer than the Animal Kingdom Lodge. You can walk to Epcot from the Beach Club and you are a short ferry boat ride from Hollywood Studios. The bus ride to the Magic Kingdom is a little shorter than when traveling from the Animal Kingdom Lodge.

    I love both the Animal Kingdom Lodge and the Beach Club. If I had to choose one, I'd pick the Beach Club everytime because Stormalong Bay (the pool) is amazing! In addition, I just really enjoy the Crescent Lake area at Disney, which is where the Beach Club is located.

    Have a wonderful vacation,
