    We will either be staying @ Animal Kingdom, Boardwalk, or Beach Club. We have never been to WDW so have no idea of the distance from each hotel to all four of the parks. Is there transportation to get from each hotel to each park & how long to wait?

    Hi Ikeyla, Thanks for visiting the Moms Panel!

    When vacationing at Disney World, there is no need to rent a car. From the moment you arrive at the airport, Disney provides the Magical Express shuttle service to your Resort. Once on Property, you are able to use Disney's Transportation to get to the 4 Theme Parks, 2 Water Parks, Downtown Disney and more.

    If you choose the Boardwalk or Beach Club, it is just a short walk to Epcot. Hollywood Studios is also walkable, and is a relaxing boat ride away from both of those resorts.

    Animal Kingdom Lodge is closest to Animal Kingdom Park, but is still a bus ride away.

    You should give yourself an hour from when you arrive at a bus stop to when you wish to be in a Park. This is because the buses come approximately every 20 minutes. You never know when you get to the bus stop if one has just left (so you have to wait awhile) or if one is coming around the bend (so you'll be ahead of schedule).

    Of the Resorts that you mentioned, I would choose the Beach Club. It's one of our family's favorites because it features Storm-a-long Bay. This is a 3 acre pool with a sand bottom, whirling waters, slide and more. The Yacht and Beach Clubs location and proximity to Epcot can't be beat.

    Enjoy your vacation and please let me know if you need further assistance.
