Beach Club bus service

Staying at the BC for a week (starting Sunday) and am wondering about bus service. I've stayed at BWI in the past and sometimes the buses would stop at swan/dolphin, BC, YC, etc. and by the time we were actually on our way we could have just driven ourselves & parked.

Does anyone know the bus stop pattern (if there is one) at the BC for MK, AK, DHS? Obviously we will walk to Epcot.

Everyone's experience/opinion is different, but the buses, IMO, can be hit or miss. I don't know what the pattern would be, but sometimes they are shared among all 5 resorts and sometimes they are only shared between the BC and YC and there's really no way of knowing until you're actually there (IMO).

There is no bus to DHS. You either take the boat or walk. Walking is faster if your feet are up to it. Sometimes we take the boat there or back just for the chance to sit for a bit.

As far as I know, the bus route is the same (BWI, BC, YC, Dolphin, Swan) regardless of the eventual park unless it has changed since last year. It's been that way for all the times we've been between 2000-2012.

There are times when the YC and BC/BCV are the only ones on the bus. And BWI/BWV, Swan and Dolphin are on another.

Two months ago this was our service, which is very good. I recall one time all five resorts sharing! What a nightmare that was...

They've finally changed the bus service. Stayed at YC late August. BC & YC share, YC is first with both pick up and drop off.
DTD is the only bus that is shared with all Epcot resorts.

This is true. Rarely does the Y&B bus stop at the Boardwalk ... usually only in off hours (middle of the day).

It has been fine to the parks as far as I'm concerned. Downtown Disney is another matter, as all 5 Epcot resorts still share buses on that route.

Drive time is about 15 minutes. That doesn't include time waiting for the bus.

So if I'm taking the bus from BC to AK, are there any stops in between?

Yes. Blizzard Beach. On SOME routes at non-peak times of day, it may also stop at Boardwalk.
