From Boardwalk to Magic Kingdom

We are staying at the Boardwalk from March 20 to 25. I've read in older posts that the bus system to Magic Kingdom can be long. Has the situation improved recently? Would you consider taking the Monorail at Epcot with a park hopper ticket or waiting for the bus at BW?

We stayed at beach club in October and had read they shared bus transport to MK with boardwalk but this was not the case with the exception of one journey going where we picked up at boardwalk. The rest of the time we went direct to MK so imagine boardwalk had direct service as well.

Certainly we never waited long for the buses.

We stay at BCV & really enjoy the "wander" through Epcot to the monorail, to get over to MK............

That said its not a 2 minute walk, but it's not an issue........ & the kids love the monorail.......they see it as a "park" ride :-):-)

We always have a car, as for us waiting for (any) bus would be the last resort......;-);-);-) but for "most" MK visits we walk through Epcot......

The bus is fine and a lot quicker than walking all the way through EPCOT to get the monorail. We stayed at the Boardwalk and wouldn't even consider the EPCOT route, especially if you want to arrive at the MK for rope drop. It would take a good 15-20 minutes to walk to the monorail from the Boardwalk and then you could be waiting another 10 minutes or so for the monorail to arrive. Get the bus, the journey is about 15 minutes.

Came back from our trip. The bus was definitively the way to go. We tried the Monorail-Epcot one very hot afternoon and had to switch Monorail then re-enter Epcot (bag checking is a pain).

The Bus drops you off at the gate, the monorail drops you off at another monorail.
