    Can you tell me the transportation times to the parks from the Beach Club?

    Hi William!

    My family loves staying at Disney's Beach Club Resort because of the close proximity to Epcot; it's a lovely 5 to 10 minute walk to Epcot's World Showcase entrance. You can take a boat as well, but it does take longer...around 15 minutes.

    You can get to Disney's Hollywood Studios by walking or taking one of the Friendship boats. Plan on about 15 minutes to walk and 15 to 25 via the boat because of other stops.

    Getting to Magic Kingdom by Disney Bus took us about 20 to 25 minutes.

    Animal Kingdom took the longest amount of time to get to. By bus it took approximately 25 to 30 minutes.

    All of these times are, of course, average times and not definite! When I was there in October these were the times that my husband and I took note of.  The crowd levels will impact these transportation times.  Driving your own vehicle usually takes longer to get into one of the Parks because of parking. When you take Disney transportation you get dropped off closer to the gates.

    Have a fantastic trip!
