    I plan to stay the Beach Club and would like to know how to use Disney transport for the Magic Kingdom for 8AM extra magic hours. Do I get a bus to the ticket and transportation centre and then take Monorail? How long will that take?

    Hello Deirdre!  Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    My family stayed at Disney's Beach Club Resort last year and we have one piece of advice: plan some resort time.  Stormalong Bay is (in my opinion) the best pool area in all of Walt Disney World Resort and Disney's Boardwalk is an attraction unto itself.

    As far as taking advantage of the Extra Magic Hours, Walt Disney World Resort has got you covered with Complimentary Resort Transportation.  Buses from Disney's Beach Club begin running an hour before the park is scheduled to open for Guests.  This includes the Extra Magic Hours for Guests staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel.  When there are Extra Magic Hours for Magic Kingdom starting at 8 am (with a park opening of 9 am), the buses will begin running shortly after 7 am from the bus depot at Disney's Beach Club Resort.

    During our stay at Disney's Beach Club, we dined at Beaches and Cream Soda Shop twice.  On our second visit, we indulged in the Kitchen Sink which combines 8 scoops of ice cream and every topping they have in stock.  We had 8 spoons, 30 minutes, tummy-aches and a memory that will last forever.

    Be sure to personalize your Disney MagicBands online before your trip using the My Disney Experience App.  You can book FastPass+ selections, Advanced Dining Reservations and Check-in Online before your vacation through the My Disney Experience App, as well.

    Have a Magical Vacation!
