Beach Club dock refurb dates adjusted

Additional details have come to light regarding the anticipated closure of the dock at Disney's Yacht & Beach Club resorts.

Previously we noted that the dock servicing both the Yacht and Beach Clubs was scheduled to be closed from February 21 through some unspecified date in mid-March.  Website WDWMagic.com is now reporting that the closure will last from February 18 to March 24, 2011.

During this period the Friendship boats will not be stopping at the Yacht & Beach Club dock. Boat service will continue to run between Epcot, Disney's BoardWalk, the Dolphin and Swan Resorts and Disney's Hollywood Studios.

Shuttle buses will run from the Yacht & Beach Club resorts to Disney's Hollywood Studios.

Will the order change? Should make travel between the other points faster during that time.

I would think the travel time would be faster and the boats not as crowded but I don't think it would affect the order.

The guests at BWV are allowed to use SAB during the the refurbishment of BWV's feature pool, it's a really rough for families to get to SAB. It's a long walk after walking around the parks all day. And then you gotta come back after swimming and being more tired. I don't think this closure was well planned.

I was afraid the dates would be extended. Mom and Dad are going to the BC in mid-March and they were so looking forward to taking the Friendship boats to DHS. I know they could "just" walk a little further to the S&D, but they're 80 yo, and the S&D isn't "just" a little walk for them. Now it looks like the dock refurbishment won't be complete until a week after they leave.

Dot, depending on where they are in BC, picking up the Friendship boat outside the International Gateway is shorter than going to the Y&B dock. Definetly a lot closer than walking over to S&D.
