    Thanks Doug! Funny you mention BC, hoping to stay there for the first time and enjoy the pool! So walk to Epcot, bus to MK. Car to AK, break to Blizzard Beach, then Boma for dinner. HS, car or boat? Will break and return to HS, will driving save time?


    The Beach Club is FANTASTIC!

    First off, yes you take the boat to Hollywood Studios. Technically you could save a little time in the drive by car, but I think with all the running around the parking lots it is a wash and just more convenient to go via boat. The walk is not horrible either, though I like to save my strength for walking around the parks!

    On occasion you could also take the monorail to the Magic Kingdom (walk through Epcot), but it can take a while, since you have to change monorail lines at the transportation and ticket center. So I would stick to the bus.

    I also like your plan to drive on your day with the Animal Kingdom park, then Blizzard Beach, then dinner at Boma. But be aware that the parking lot at the Animal Kingdom park often does not open very early, as compared to park opening. So if you are planning on getting there at rope drop (when the park opens), you may find yourself standing in a line of cars.

    Write me back with more questions! I love to help!

    Have a magical vacation!
