BLT to Epcot via Monarail - Easy/Hard? Ride Length?

We are hoping to book Bay Lake Tower for a trip in early November 2013 (before Thanksgiving).

With 2.5 year old twins, we will be spending most of our time at MK and will enjoy the convenience of being close enough to walk to MK.

We thought it would also be convenient to get to EPCOT via the monorail from BLT as we are planning on 3 table service dinners over there.

However, I have read some posts that the monorail is NOT easy to access, but I am not understanding why exactly. The monorail is the Contemporary, so don't we just walk over from BLT and hop on the monorail within the Contemporary hotel and go straight to Epcot?

Or do we have to switch monorail trains at some point? If we have to switch, how do we do that? Is it manageable with a double stroller and 2 grandparents with electric scooters?

How long should the monorail ride take from BLT to Epcot during a slow time of year?

We are planning dinner reservations around 5pm each day. What time should we plan on leaving BLT by to make it on time to EPCOT dinner reservations? Planning on Beirgarten, Akershus, and Garden Grill.

Thank you in advance for your help!
