what is the BEST way to get to Beach Club???

for breakfast, what would be the best/fastest way from POP? olp says to take the bus to epcot then a boat to BC. I know you can walk through epcot, then along the lake, but then we would have to go through security and all that. so Im thinking the boat may be faster??? I am going to try to get a 9:30 adr. what time would you plan on leaving?

Take the bus to STUDIOS then walk or take the boat to BC. It takes me about 25 minutes to walk from the entrance at the Studio to the entrance of Epcot. The boat is not much faster.

If you take the bus to Epcot you will need to walk through the park to get to BC, which might be difficult that early.

The fastest and easiest way is to hop in a taxi. You can be door to door in less that 15 minutes for under $20.

If there isn't one waiting, luggage services will ring one up for you promptly.

I routinely stay at POP and BW. I just wouldn't use Disney transportation in the early morning to get from POP to YC/BC/BW. Get a cab. We took a cab from YC to POP and it was $10, including tip, in Sept. The resorts are very close to each other...maybe an 8 min. drive.

I agree, take a cab. It's worth the price for a quick ride over to the BC from Pop. Using the Disney transportation would cost you about an hour (or more) of your vacation time. I think the cab cost would justify it. We are a rental car family and like to dine at different resorts, so driving is quick and easy.

That would be a good trip to use a taxi.

If you want to use WDW transportation take the bus to the Studios and then boat or walk to the BC. When you get off the bus at the Studios you will see a lake right in front of you. Look to the left side of the lake and you'll see a dock. If there is a boat there (or you can see one on it's way to the dock) then head there and take a liesurely boat ride. If there is no boat in sight, head to the right of the lake and follow the path along the waterway. When you get to the entrance to the BW bear left, and then go over the bridge to your right and follow the walkway to the BC.

If you don't have to wait long for a bus at POP then your trip shouldn't be much more than 40 minutes using WDW transportation. If you have to wait for a bus it could take a little more than an hour.

A taxi would have you there in 20 minutes or less (including whatever time you spend waiting for a taxi).
