    We are going to be staying at the BCV, but have ADR at MGM, YC, Epcot and FW. Can you give me an idea about how long it will take to get to the restaurants, and best means of transportation from the BCV. Thank you! Love the panel

    I have stayed at the Beach Club Villas several times. It is the PERFECT hotel for my family. Most of the reservations you have a very easy to get to from your hotel.

    The Yacht Club hotel is physically attached to the Beach Club hotel. It would be a maximum of about a 5 minute walk to get to any of the restaurants there.

    Similarly, from the BCV, you're about a five minute walk in the other direction from the International Gateway entrance to Epcot. Once you get to Epcot, the furthest table service restaurant is probably the Coral Reef, which is approximately a 15 minute walk away. If you're eating at one of the closest countries, England or France, you're walk time will be much less.

    MGM is now called DHS (Disney's Hollywood Studios). To get there, go out to the boat dock located in front of the Yacht Club (they'll give you a map when you check in) and hop on a boat to the Studios. The ride will take between 10--15 minutes and is very relaxing. From there, you're a 7-10 minute walk to any of the the Studios restaurants.

    Your only reservation that will take you a significant amount of time to get to is Fort Wilderness. (Very worth it if you're going to the Hoop Dee Doo Revue, in my opinion.) To get there, go to the Beach Club bus depot and hop on a bus to the Magic Kingdom. The ride itself is about 20 minutes. At the MK, you'll go to the boat dock there and transfer to a boat to Fort Wilderness. This ride is about 10-15 minutes. To account for transfer times, I would leave the BCV at least an hour or more before you need to be at Fort Wilderness.

    Have a great trip to WDW!
