    We have visited WDW before, but stayed at our off-site timeshare. We decided to trade our timeshare for the Beach Club Villas this time. We would love some tips (ie-resort,room location,trans.). We have 3 kids (7yr, 4yr, 2yr). And can I add dining plan?

    Howdy Jackie! I am so excited for you!! You are going to love Disney's Beach Club Villas!

    Some of the must do items include:
    Stormalong Bay:   3-acre water wonderland that has an incredible waterslide and sand-bottomed pool,
    Cape May Café Character Breakfast Buffet:  Great food and your kiddos will enjoy seeing some of their favorite Disney characters dressed in beach attire,
    Movies or roasted marshmallows on the beach.

    Unlike some of the other resorts, we do not have a preferred villa location while at Beach Club. The resort is very comfortable and "homey." You will find a path that comes out near the bridge to Epcot. For convenience sake, you might ask for a villa closer to Epcot but I know you will enjoy your villa regardless of the location.

    Transportation: you can walk to Epcot and Boardwalk. You can walk or take a boat to Disney's Hollywood Studios. You can use bus transportation to get to Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, Downtown Disney or the water parks. If it works with your schedule, you can make your way through Epcot and then take the monorail to Magic Kingdom.

    Dining: Great news! You can add the dining plan to your reservation.  You will receive a phone number for DVC Member Services with your reservation information. It may take a week for Member Services to have access to your reservation. Once you are in their system, you will be able to add a dining plan to your reservation, set up Disney's Magical Express, and make dining and entertainment reservations. The Cast Members at Member Services are fantastic and very helpful!

    I am so excited for you and my kiddos asked me to tell you to enjoy some ice cream at Beaches & Cream Soda Shop. Yummy!!!

    Have a great time and please let me know if you need any further information as you plan your Walt Disney World Resort vacation. Have a magical day!
