2 ECVs on BC buses?

Our family is traveling with my parents to WDW this fall, staying at the Beach Club. Both of my parents will be using ECVs, which we rented off-site, to get around.

We are renting a large SUV, so we could drive to MK and AK, however, I would like to take the buses at least to MK, if possible, to avoid the lengthy travel times and transferring at the TTC.

Will it be reasonable to try and board with two ECVs on the buses or would we be better off just driving?

Thanks in advance!

I never stayed at the beach club but tried buses with 2 ECV's it depends on how crowded it is I ended up taking our car going back to the hotel at night was tough with the car we knew what we had to deal with

buses can take 2 vehicles, some can take 3. If you want to take the bus, you can try but just be prepared to be split up and go on another bus if needed. you can never tell if theres anyone in an ECV on the bus already or if anyones waiting.

Thank you both for your replies. It sounds like we should just plan to use the car unless we are willing to be pretty flexible about our wait times so it will vary by day/activity.

Also, keep in mind that the Epcot area resorts share buses, so the bus may be full when it comes to your resort.

SueM and Disney David - thank you for the info on the shared buses. I think that will be even harder to avoid having to split my parents up onto multiple buses when traveling to MK and AK. I appreciate the info!
