Two logistical questions...

1. What is the best way to get from DHS to DTD? By bus? Or do you have to first go back to your resort? (We'll be at POR)

2. I thought I read somewhere that there is a boat that transports guests between DHS and the Beach Club. Is this true or did I make it up?

Thanks!

1. No direct buses between DTD and any park. You must transfer at a resort.

2. True. Boats run between DHS and Epcot and stop at all Epcot area resorts in between.

You would have to take a bus to A Resort, or the boat to one of the Resorts on the boat path, Beach Club, Yacht Club, Dolphin and Swan, and I forget what the last one is.....

Take bus back to POR then the boat from there, this way you can drop off anything you don't need to take with you.
Or... walk to one of the resorts such as Dolphin or Swan and take the bus from there, or Boat to Dolphin, Swan, Beach Club, Yacht Club or Boardwalk and bus from there.

True, that.

OR-

You can take the bus from Epcot's front gates to Saratoga Springs Resort (Congress Park Stop) and walk to DTD from there.
(There is also shuttle boat service between Saratoga Springs and DTD.)
