    We're going to stay at the Beach club villas and heard that you can walk to Epcot from there. Is this true and if we do ride the Disney buses to the other parks, can we take our double stroller or a single stroller on the buses?

    Hi Gina!

    The Yacht and Beach Club are beautiful resorts, that share what many argue, is the best swimming pool at Disney, Stormalong Bay.  In addition, they are located in a wonderful area, between Epcot and Hollywood Studios, making both of these parks a short boat ride or walk away.  You can absolutely walk to Epcot from the Beach Club.  You will enter the park via the International Gateway, which leads into the World Showcase.  This is a much less crowded entrance, and a pleasure to use.

    The Beach Club's location makes having dinner at Epcot, staying for Illuminations and then enjoying a leisurely stroll back "home," a wonderful way to end a perfect Disney day!

    As for travelling to the other parks, access to the Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom is via bus, and Hollywood Studios is via boat (or you can walk).  You can take either a single or double stroller onto any Disney Transportation  (buses, monorails and boats).  You will need to fold your stroller when boarding the buses, but don't worry, because you will be in good company with the other guests travelling with little ones.  The bus drivers are very patient, and the buses have plenty of room for your wheels and kids!

    Have a wonderful trip!
