    Hello, we are staying at the Beach Club Resort. Is there another way to get to MK from the Beach Club other than taking the bus? Something walking to Hollywood Studios and get on the monorail? Is this right? And could you do the same for the water pa

    Hi Terri!

    The Beach Club is one of our favorite properties for two reasons:  it has what many believe to be the BEST pool at Disney (Stormalong Bay) and it's location is fabulous (you can walk to both Epcot and Hollywood Studios, as well as enjoy all of the nightly entertainment and great dining on the Boardwalk).

    The fastest way to get to the Magic Kingdom from the Beach Club, is, indeed, to take a bus from the resort to the park.  However, some guests (especially those with sleeping children in strollers who don't want to "fold" the strollers to board buses) chose to walk through Epcot (via the International Gateway entrance) to the front of the park, and catch a monorail to the Ticket and Transportation Center, and then to the Magic Kingdom.  I've done this myself on the way back to the Beach Club from the Magic Kingdom, because both of my boys were sleeping in their strollers, and we enjoyed a leisurely walk through Epcot.  We even stopped for a glass of wine in France!  However, it definitely takes longer than hoping on a bus headed directly to the Beach Club.

    There is no monorail service to Hollywood Studios, so the scenario you described in your question isn't possible.  In order to get to Hollywood Studios from the Beach Club, you will take a short boat ride to the park.

    Have a wonderful vacation!
