Glad to hear you had a great trip! We'll be staying at the YC for the first time in October.

Great review! We will be arriving at YC in 3 days. This is our first Disney Trip. My kids are 7, 9, and 14. I was wondering what the best mode of transportation is from YC to each of the parks (HS, MK, AK, and Epcot)? We do not have hopper passes, but we will be traveling from AK to DTD one night.

HS - Boat or walk
MK - We love doing the Monorail and either the boat or Monorail from the TTC
AK - Bus
Epcot - Walk

Only 2 more sleeps!

Thank you so much! I feel so unprepared. I've booked all dining, selected our Fast Passes, have our magic bands, and am almost done packing. I just hope things run smoothly

That's a tricky one -- you could take a bus to either POR or POFQ or any of the Deluxes at Epcot (BC, YC, BWI) and take the ferry boat. I don't remember if there is a bus that goes from AK to DTD.

Yup, the boat to HS is great, you can walk too if it's not too hot and your feet are not too tired. It's a 20 minute walk. About 15 minutes by boat. Walk to Epcot, it's 5 minutes away. We had hoppers so hopped in for dinner many nights. Bus to MK is the quickest and without hoppers the only option. Bus to AK as well. We didn't go to DTD this trip but from AK there probably isn't a direct bus, you could hop on a bus to AKL and then take a DTD bus from there. You'll need to get to a resort. Another option is take a bus to one of the Port Orleans resorts from AK and take the boat from there to DTD.

Enjoy YC, your kids will love the pool, perfect ages! Have a great trip!

I think I like your food and drink photos at least as much as I would seeing my own family with a character! In fact those Lobster omelet and Sunken Treasure pictures are just like old friends!!

Nom, Nom, Glug, Glug...

Thanks for taking the time to write your thoughts! I sure did enjoy reading them!

The Epcot resorts have boat service to Epcot, Disney Studios & the resorts. The boats there do NOT go to DTD. You could take a bus to any resort & change to a DTD bus from there.

Thank you for sharing your review. I'm glad you had a great time.

The pictures of Captain's Grille breakfast definitely makes me want to eat there next year.
