    Is it true Boardwalk Villas shares bus transportation w/ Beach Club Villas & Yacht Club to go to the parks. What is their pickup order? What is their drop off order?

    Hi Deborah.

    Thanks for visiting the Moms Panel with your question.

    Disney's Epcot area resort hotels often do share bus routes. This is the case with many of the resorts which are located near one another, around the Walt Disney World property.

    Exactly how many resorts are on the route and the order of the stops, sometimes varies depending on time of year and Guest volumes, special event evenings in the parks, and other factors.

    In my experiences, having recently stayed at BoardWalk, Beach Club and Yacht Club, these three resorts as well as the Swan and Dolphin, do share buses to the parks. The pick up and drop off order most often goes like this:
    Swan - Dolphin - Yacht Club - Beach Club - BoardWalk

    If staying at Disney's Boardwalk Resort, you'll find it's actually a quicker option at the end of your Disney Day to get off the bus at the first stop at the Swan. It's just a short walk across the footbridge directly to the BoardWalk. It's a lovely stroll and a big time-saver over waiting through the additional bus stops.

    During peak times, you'll find that buses will run more frequently, or, there will be less resorts per route.

    I hope this information helps you out Deborah!
    Please write me back if I can be of further assistance to you as you begin planning your family's vacation. I'd love to hear from you again!

    Wishing you a simply Magical time at Walt Disney World!
