    What time does transportation from Beach Club Resort begin to take guests to Epcot?

    Hello, William! Thanks for bringing your question to the beach-loving planDisney panel! 

    William, with its famous pool, Stormalong Bay, and great onsite dining options, Disney's Beach Club Resort is a wonderful choice to elevate your Walt Disney World Resort vacation. I hope you love your stay! 

    Officially transportation from the Disney Resorts Collection hotels begins 45 minutes before park opening. For EPCOT that would be at approximately 10:15AM. Now, William, sometimes Tinker Bell will sprinkle her pixie dust over all of the traffic lights and you'll see buses (or in this case boats) arrive early. A few days ago I stayed at Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa and on our way to EPCOT we did see earlier buses. If you don't mind waiting a bit, I would recommend heading to the boat launch 75-60 minutes before park opening to have the best chance of getting there early. 

    Alternatively if you don't mind stretching your legs on your way to the park, you'll find an easy walking path from Disney's Beach Club Resort to EPCOT that will take you approximately 5-8 minutes on foot to reach the International Gateway entrance. 

    William, I hope this helps as you're planning out your day at EPCOT. If you have any other questions, come on back to planDisney! 

    As my pal Mickey would say, "see ya real soon!"
