Disney's Beach Club Resort

Reviewed 28 May 2014

We loved every minute of our stay at the Beach Club. The pool has two slides, the sandy play area, the volleyball net, the whirlpool, waterfalls, and the lazy river. This has set the bar for all other hotel pools frankly. They checked our magic bands upon entering the pool area which was comforting. Our room seemed larger than expected and it was clean and well-kept. I left a tip each morning and housekeeping was spot on with any special requests. The front desk staff was very helpful, especially the young man from Univ of California (sorry I forgot your name). The cast members in the marketplace were friendly and helpful. Breakfast at Captain's Grille was terrific. Martin the butler who brought room service was a delight! Nothing but the best at Disney!

We have stayed at other Epcot resorts ( Yacht Club and Boardwalk) before; this was our first time at Beach Club.

Our rooms were very comfortable, quiet and clean with a nice balcony with chairs (looks like this is only available on the 2nd floor). We booked a Standard room and were very close to the small "quiet " (not very ) pool.

The Stormalong Bay pool complex is fantastic (shared with Yacht). Lazy river, sandy bar for kids, pool activities, water slide, hot tubs...it is big and busy but you can always find a place to feel somewhat more relaxed. I have a hard time staying anywhere else at Disney because of the pool and location. Access to the pool is a little confusing from Beach Club; it's easier from Yacht Club.

The resort sits on a "bay" surrounded by a boardwalk. The Boardwalk area has lots of dining options (sit-down and counter service) as well as street performers in the evening. This and the proximity to Epcot keep us coming back. We could be inside Epcot 5 minutes after leaving our hotel room! Very short walk. We frequently walked over to dine in the international areas and shop (Park Hopper tickets are a must if you want to do this...worth it!).

There is a small counter service option with some groceries available in the resort gift shop. The food is only so-so and the service could be more friendly. It is quite hectic in the AM but I never had to wait long for food. I frequented it multiple times a day to get breakfast, shop and get beverages in my refillable mug.

Self parking is fairly convenient, just a few minutes walk. Save the money and don't valet park! I never had trouble finding a space.

Downtown Disney is a short car ride (10 minutes door to door). The bus there can take quite a while; I recommend driving if possible, though parking can be challenging.

Buses to Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom come pretty frequently. It's about 20-30 minutes door to door to/from MK, about 15-20 to/from AK. You can take a boat to Hollywood Studios (takes about 10 minutes once it arrives; you may wait up to 10 minutes for it to come.). You can also walk to HS; takes about 15-20 minutes I would guess.

We didn't eat at any of the sit down restaurants in or near the resort except the little diner Beaches and Cream so can't comment. We did have a steak via room service that was reasonably priced ( for room service), delivered quickly, and very good.

The resort is definitely due a little refurbishment. The hallway carpets are looking worn, the bathroom tiles are not as sparkling as they could be, the door hinges are rusty, etc. None of this interfered with our enjoyment of the resort, however.

The lobby is nice but very loud in the AM and at dinner time due to access to the Cape May restaurant. I like sitting in the lobby with a book at times so this was a negative for me.(Yacht Club's lobby is quieter and the gift shop is nicer, but no counter service meal option there.)

I will keep coming back to the Epcot resorts. I give Yacht Club a very slight edge, but if you prefer the convenience of the counter service meals in the gift shop and the few minutes you will shave off your walk to Epcot, then Beach Club is a great choice.

The hotel is very nice with great amenities. The room showed a little wear but was very clean. The staff was great. Friendly and helpful. Our beds were turned down each night and our grandchildren especially liked the chocolates on their pillows. The club room was ok but not a lot of snacks to choose from. Beverages were also limited but they would get you something if requested. All in all, great experience.

Disney's Beach Club Resort is located on Crescent Lake between EPCOT and Hollywood Studios, both within walking distance or a relaxing boat ride away. The boardwalk, full of shops, restaurants and entertainment, is just steps away, too. When you stay at the Beach Club, you are right in the middle of the action. The best reason to stay, however, is the resort itself. If you never step foot in the parks, there is still plenty to see and do whether you're there for a romantic weekend or a fun trip with the kids. The Beach Club is gorgeous, with its beautiful blue and white architecture, interesting restaurants (Cape May Café & Beaches and Cream are some of our favorites), and stunning lake side views (especially around sunset). The resort features Stormalong Bay, a huge beautifully themed swimming area, including a lazy river, large ship wreck slide, and great snack and beverage stop. The Cast Members are friendly and helpful, truly there to ensure your vacation is the best. The rooms are well appointed and clean. The amenities are upscale and generous. While the resort could use a minor facelift and we find it a little pricy, we will stay at the Beach Club again and would highly recommend it for anyone visiting the Lake Buena Vista area.

We just keep coming back. It has a great location , especially for Epcot or Hollywood. The few problems we have had over the years have always been handled really well by management. The pool is absolutely awesome and I love Beaches and Cream. For the most part the staff has always been friendly and helpful. They do make you feel welcomed and comfortable. It may be a little overpriced and gosh yes in need of a refurbish but it reeks vacation fun. My son has added maybe a few more new machines in arcade would be nice. The only area where it could immediately make it a 5 star experience is by improving park bus traveling. At high travel times there are seldom if any seats which is exasperated by stops at other hotels. Regardless we would not consider staying anywhere else and we already can't wait to come back "home'".

Just returned from 6 nights at The Beach Club with husband and young adult son. As our last few visits to Disney had been winter break trips, we had stayed at Moderate resorts vs Deluxe -- and that worked well for us (rooms are really just as comfortable.) Visiting during the May heat, however, we decided to re-visit The Beach Club and we're glad we did. The giant, beautifully landscaped pool/lazy river is absolutely worth the extra expense -- especially since my 'kids' no longer need to spend all day at the Parks. The only complaint we had was the (very) limited poolside quick serve options (cheeseburger, grilled chicken sandwich, salad w/chicken and some mayo seafood sandwich. That's it and it gets old after a few days.) Quick serve breakfast wasn't any better (choice of egg/bacon sandwich or egg/bacon platter.) Disney would obviously prefer that we opt for sit down meals, but we really just wanted something quick. Surprisingly (to us), the Moderate resorts offer a much larger menu (pasta/chicken/soups/salad choices for lunch, waffles, pancakes plus eggs, etc for breakfast.)

We were lucky enough to be on the first floor near a back exit (1500 area.) Walked out the door, through a gate and less than a 1/4 mile from the World Showcase entrance to Epcott. You could hear the World Showcase music from the room - and it was wonderful! Look forward to returning (next time I'll bring a jar of peanut butter and some protein bars) and do highly recommend this resort during the summer months.
