One of the best selling features of the Beach Club, is its proximity to Epcot. A short three minute walk and you're at the International Gateway at the World Showcase entrance to Epcot. Even when entering the park before the World Showcase "officially" opens at 11 a.m., Cast Members will guide guests to the Future World section of Epcot. This is also great for avoiding the throngs of people leaving Epcot after Illuminations. Other modes of transportation for Beach Club guests are available.
Magic Kingdom: Take the bus, a service shared with the Yacht Club and Boardwalk Resorts, or walk to Epcot, take the Monorail to the TTC and transfer to the MK Monorail.
Epcot: Aside from walking, the Friendship water launches can provide you with a leisurely, air-conditioned shuttle to Epcot. Leisurely, in that it could take up to 20 minutes as the launch stops at the Boardwalk Resorts and the Swan and Dolphin as well.
Disney's Hollywood Studios: A separate Friendship launch transports guests to Disney's Hollywood Studios. The launches make stops at the Boardwalk Resorts and the Swan and Dolphin hotels as well.
