    Trying to decide, just going to be there one night, and take bus to MK evening, and AK next morning.
    Isn't the bus run---
    Boardwalk, then Swan then Dolphin, the Yacht club, then Beach Club?
    It seems like Boardwalk is first, and Beach Club last on way to park, not return.
    I really remember Boardwalk seems to take 35 minutes to finish picking up other hotels before finally hitting the road to drive to the park.
    Is this correct?

    Sorry, it won't let me correct typo in title.

    I don't think there is a bus. I know you can walk to Epcot from Beach Club, or take the boat.:)

    I've been on the MK run a few times recently and they do not have buses sharing at all five resorts. They have one bus for Swan/Dolphin/Boardwalk and one for Yacht/Beach.

    Don't know about AK.

    sometimes if not busy time - it will be swan/dolphin, yc, bc, bw

    during busy times - one bus - yc, bc
    another bus - BW, swan, dolphin

    so the only time the bc is the last bus stop is when it is just it and yc.

    We've stayed at BC many times and the bus always went directly from BC to MK. The AK bus would go from BC to AK, sometimes stopping at Blizzard Beach first.

    The ride home is different. For the last few years, even in slow times, the bus has gone from MK to YC then BC when we've been there. I can't remember what the AK bus route is.

    My experience is same as pp. BW is always last. Next time we stay we'll get off at Swan and walk since that's close to BWV side

    I've stayed at BC many times since 1992 and in the past two years, I've stayed at BC/YC six times. The timing of my recent stays ranges from value season (winter and summer) to peak holiday season (Easter week) to regular season (October.) In the morning, it's usually BC straight to MK or AK (on rare occasions, and if the bus is not full, we've stopped at BWI, which added three minutes to the trip when I timed it.) On the way back from MK, it's been S/D, then YC, then BC. I don't mind the leisurely pace at the end and we always have the option of bailing at S/D or YC, but we never do. Can't recall the journey back from AK, for some reason!

    Are you talking about TO the parks?
    The question is TO the parks, not return from the parks.

    You must not be talking about TO the parks. Why would you get off at Swan and walk when you are trying to get to MK or AK?

    Last week it was BC directly to MK (for EMH at 6:40am :eek:) and for AK it was also a direct BC to park trip.
