One of the best features of Disney's Beach Club Resort® is that it has the distinct advantage of its close proximity to Epcot®. A short ten-minute walk is all that it takes to get to the International Gateway entrance of the World Showcase at Epcot. For guests who arrive at this entrance prior to the World Showcase official opening time of 11:00 a.m., there will be Cast Members to escort guests to Future World. Buses and Friendship launches will take guests to other Walt Disney World Resort destinations.
Magic Kingdom® Park: Take the Magic Kingdom® Park bus from the front of the resort. Bus service is shared by Disney's Beach Club Resort®, and Disney's BoardWalk Resort® as well. A leisurely, but more scenic alternative, is to walk through Epcot and take the Monorail to the Ticket & Transportation Center and switch to the Magic Kingdom® Park Monorail from there.
Epcot: If its too hot to walk or if you simply want to conserve your energy, take the Friendship boat launch. But take note that the launch also stops at the Walt Disney World Swan & Dolphin® and Disney's BoardWalk Resort® docks so the trip to Epcot could take up to 20 minutes.
Disney Hollywood Studios®: Take a separate Friendship launch. As with the Epcot launch, service is shared with the other Crescent Lake resorts. Once again, this trip can take up to 20 minutes.
Disney's Animal Kingdom® Theme Park: Take the Disney's Animal Kingdom® Theme Park bus. However, in addition to Disney's Yacht & Beach Club Resort® guests, the bus also makes stops at Disney's Boardwalk Resort and the Walt Disney World Swan & Dolphin® hotels.
Downtown Disney® Marketplace, Downtown Disney® West Side, Downtown Disney® Pleasure Island: Take the Downtown Disney® bus
Disney's Typhoon Lagoon® Water Park: Take the Downtown Disney® bus
Disney's Blizzard Beach® Water Park: Take the Disney's Blizzard Beach® Water Park bus
For those wishing to go anywhere else on (or off) property, Bell Services can get a taxi for you. The bus stop at Disney's Yacht Club® Resort is located to the left as you exit the lobby, on the other side of the porte cochere (valet loading and unloading area).
