Beach Club Pros
Variety of Rooms & Villas
Whether you need a standard room for 4 guests, a 2-bedroom villa that sleeps up to 9 or something in-between; the Beach Club has you covered! Villas come with a living room and fully equipped kitchen giving you that home-away-from-home experience.
This sand bottom pool comes with a water slide, pirate ship and even a lazy river! Many guests claim there’s no need to visit the water parks when you practically have a mini-water park included as your hotel pool!
Access to EPCOT and Disney’s Hollywood Studios
Take an easy stroll from your room to the International Gateway entrance of EPCOT! Or take a relaxing boat ride to Disney’s Hollywood Studios. These two parks are very close by!
Beach Club Cons
Limited Quick Service Menu Options
Choose from the Beach Club Marketplace, Beaches and Cream Soda Shop or Hurricane Hanna’s to grab a quick bite to eat. Although their menus provide limited options, the good news is that you can walk over to the Boardwalk for even more options like the Boardwalk Bakery or the Pizza Window!
It’s Gonna Cost You
This is a Deluxe Resort after all. If you’re prone to sticker shock, consider a split-stay here combined with one of Disney’s Moderates or Values to negate the cost.
Be Prepared to Walk!
Disney’s Beach Club Resort is spread out with long hallways! Depending on where your room is located, you may need a few extra minutes to get from point A to point B. That’s okay though… just grab an extra water and brag about your daily step total!
Should You Stay at Beach Club Resort?
If cost isn’t a concern– YES! The location is tough to beat! If you can’t justify the cost, consider a split-stay and be sure to spend a resort day here to take advantage of Stormalong Bay!
If you’re not one to spend a lot of time at your resort, perhaps try Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort instead. You’ll be surrounded in similar Beach theming without the higher cost.
