Elegant & Casual Disney Beach Club Resort
Entering into the main lobby at the Disney Beach Club Resort, you gain a sense of being dropped into the era of relaxed sophistication known to exist in the New England upper-class scenes. The Disney Beach Club offers a 3-acre waterpark (Stormalong Bay) with a lazy river, waterfalls, huge water slide, and an elevated tanning deck. The New England-style Beach Club Disney Resort is a Disney World Deluxe Resort situated on 25 acres of Crescent Lake. Looking around at the decor, it reminds you of the beach at a New England resort town. The Beach Club Resort in Orlando offers many adventures with easily accessible nearby attractions. Did you know that the Beach Club Resort is the closest Disney Resort to Epcot? You can actually walk out of the back doors and walk right into the Epcot theme park.
Guest Rooms at the Beach Club Resort
Guest room amenities at the Disney Beach Club include suites with room service, private balconies, wireless Internet Access, valet laundry, Disney TV and amazing resort views. Some of the best views are of the Crescent Lake where you can watch the fireworks at night. Across the lake, you will also see the nightly festivities being held at the Disney Boardwalk Inn. Standard rooms with 2 queen beds or a single king are also available for anyone wanting to stay at the deluxe Disney Resort but save as much as they can.
Disney Beach Club Reviews
"What a lovely stay!" is what many of the guests say when visiting the Disney Beach Club Resort and leave a review. Situated right beside Epcot and being able to easily walk from the Beach Club Resort to the back entrance to the Epcot theme park was a real treat. Our kids had the best time in the Stormalong Bay Waterpark with its 3 pools, lazy river and water slide. Crescent Lake shimmers in the morning light and the beach area is one of the best in Disney World. We really enjoyed the fine dining options but our favorite is Beaches and Cream where the kids got ice cream almost every day.
As with all of the Disney Resorts, if you have a vehicle, you will be paying for each night of Self or Valet parking so be sure to add this in to the overall cost of your visit. Another complaint that you will run into is the Disney transportation does not seem to be aa smooth or run quite as frequently in the past. Be aware that the buses are shared between the Disney Yacht Club Resort and the Beach Club. Some of the guests were upset about there being too few buses and many of them being full and overcrowded when they get to the Beach Club.

The Beach Club Resort is located so close to Epcot that you can easily walk across the bridge and enter into the park without any other transportation necessary. This location, where the Beach Club stands, is extremely convenient and central to all the festivities. Just look across the Crescent Lake and you will see all of the fun going on at night at the Disney Boardwalk Inn. Next door you will find the Disney Yacht Club Resort which is the sister to the Beach Club. These resorts share amenities with each other so it is like getting a two-for-one deal when you visit. Fireworks can be seen by sitting out by the Lake or lawn each evening.
Fun Things to Do
There is no doubt that your kids will grab you by the hand each day, pulling you toward the Pools and water slide that make up the Stormalong Bay Waterpark but there are many other things to do around the Disney Beach Club Resort. Sit by the campfire at night and sing family songs, watch the fireworks at night from the lawn or lake-side, or rent a boat from the Marina and see the Crescent Lake from a different perspective. On top of all of this, you can also go fishing, play some tennis, get some other guests together for a volleyball match or head over to the arcade and get out of the heat for a while. This is just the start to the adventures you will have at the Disney Beach Club Resort.
