    Of the following Disney Beach Club Villas, Disney Animal Kingdom Villas, Disney Boardwalk Villas or Disney Old Key West Resort, what are the transportation options to the parks? I noticed only three hotels are accessible by monorail.

    All the Walt Disney World resort hotel have plentiful, free transportation to all four of the theme parks, both water parks, and Downtown Disney.  Here's the scoop on the mode of transportation from each of the resorts you mention:

    Animal Kingdom Lodge: Bus service to all destinations

    Old Key West: Bus service to all destinations

    Beach Club AND Boardwalk: Bus service to the Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, water parks and Downtown Disney. Boat service or walk to Disney's Hollywood Studios and Epcot

    The hotels that are on the monorail line (Contemporary, Polynesian, Grand Floridian) do have monorail service to the Magic Kingdom. To get from those hotels to Hollywood Studios, Animal Kingdom, water parks, and Downtown Disney, you'll take a bus. To get from those hotels to Epcot, you can take a monorail, but you'll need to transfer at the Transportation and Ticket Center.

    I have stayed at three of the hotels you've mentioned in your question (as well as the Contemporary and Grand Floridian). All are lovely, but I have to say my favorite is the Beach Club. The pool there is BY FAR the best at WDW and I LOVE being super-close to two of the theme parks.
