    Fam/3 traveling Nov2015 for a wk. Trying to decide btwn the WL and BCR. Which resort has better quick service dining & transportation? Can you really walk to the theme parks from either resort within 5mins anytime day? Planning on all theme parks xcep

    Hi Kristen!

    Wilderness Lodge and Beach Club are two of my favorite Walt Disney World resorts!  Their locations are great for visiting the Magic Kingdom and Epcot.  Wilderness Lodge is not within walking distance, but you can take a ferry boat right over to the Magic Kingdom from the Wilderness Lodge.  From Beach Club, you can either walk to the International Gateway entrance of Epcot or take a ferry boat to the International Gateway.  

    If you plan on swimming during your vacation, Beach Club has the most unique pool out of all the Walt Disney World resorts.  Stormalong Bay is practically it's own little water park and is only available to guests of the Yacht and Beach Club.  The pools are heated to 82 degrees year round, so a dip in the pool would be a fun activity, even in November.  

    Wilderness Lodge is also a ferry boat away from Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground where you can participate in a singalong with Chip 'n Dale.  This is a family favorite for us.  You can bring your own smores fixings or purchase them there.  

    I love the quick service at both locations.  Beach Club has two, Beach Club Marketplace and Hurricane Hannah's which is located by Stormalong Bay.  We usually grab food from Hurricane Hannah's and we love their smoothies, which are considered a snack on the Disney Dining Plan.

    Wilderness Lodge also has two locations, Roaring Fork and Trout Pass Pool Bar.  The flatbreads are excellent at Roaring Fork.  You can also get delicious appetizers in the Territory Lounge, which is a family friendly bar lounge and a nice place to relax.  

    You can't go wrong with either resort.  Which will you choose?

    Have a magical day!
