    Can you please tell me about the transportation to and from the Beach Club resort. I hear it is within walking distance from Disney Studios and EPCOT. I was would love to know how far to Disney studios and can we take the Mono-rail to MK via EPCOT? Than

    Hi Stephan!!!!!!  The Beach Club is almost home to me and my family so I know the routes very well for the parks.

    EPCOT is a mere five minute walk to the International Gateway.  Even though the World Showcase doesn't open until 11:00 every morning you are still able to enter through this entrance to get to Future World.

    Hollywood Studios is reached by a water taxi or by walking.  We generally enjoy walking the path that will go along the side of the Boardwalk Villas. Ask a cast member to direct you to that path once you are there.  It is about a mile long and very relaxing and peaceful.  We like to do the walk in the morning and then use the boat back in the afternoon when we are all too tired to do much more.

    The fastest and easiest way to reach the Magic Kingdom from the Beach Club is to take the bus.  This will bring you directly to the entrance of the park.  You can also walk through EPCOT to catch the monorail and when you get to the Transportation and Ticket Center you will get off that one and switch to the park or resort one...both will get you to the park.

    For the Animal Kingdom park we often get up and take a cab versus waiting for the bus which is your other option.

    I am sure you will find that you will enjoy the location of the Beach Club resort.  I know our family loves being so close to two parks and also close to the activities of the Boardwalk area.
