“Done Perfectly - No One Does It Better Than Disney”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2013

We have been staying at the Beach Club Resort at Disney World for over 14 years, but this year we stayed in two one-bedroom villas at the BC because we were here with grandkids. It was great - a really good choice for families who want space and a kitchen.

All the Beach Club atmosphere and amenities are here. The villas are perfectly furnished and outfitted, and have access to all hotel services including room service and luggage assistance.

We found nothing at all not to love. The Beach Club is a joy - Stormalong Bay (the private water park for BC and Yacht Club guests to use) is perfect - the most enjoyable pool anywhere.

Very highly recommended.

Our stay had a very dubious beginning but it turned out great.

After a long flight, we wait in line for the Magic Express bus, and wait at check-in. After we check-in, instead of going to our room, we decide to head to the check in area for the RunDisney, Princess Half Marathon (my review is about 3 weeks late...sorry!). We wanted to get this out of the way so that we would not use up any "Disney Time" in the middle of our next day there prior to the race. Upon arriving back at the hotel to see our room (where our bags were delivered) we walk in to find...wait for it... other people's food, books, wet swimsuits, etc. already in the room! The hotel actually checked us in to a room where a whole other family was already checked in! AAAAAGGGGGHHHH!

Hungry, angry, and tried my mother in law calls and immediately gets on the phone with a supervisor. Disney is obviously very embarrassed by this!

They quickly (within a few hours) come and take our bags to a different room, and re key our cards to work on the new room. All was fine, but imagine if the other family had been IN the room when we waltzed in! Not cool! In all my years, I have never seen anything like that happen. Certainly not at Disney where every detail is taken care of to the Nth degree ALWAYS.

Overall I liked the BCV quite okay. There was a decent sized balcony that spanned the length of our Villa (all 3 rooms) where were could hang out and chat. Although, it was rarely used becuase days in Disney are sun up to sun down events and there is very little time for anything other then sleep at night. The kitchen was decently sized (also never used it...we were in Disney, why would the h* would we stay in our room and cook!?). Lots of room for 6 adults to spread out!

We had all traveled there to support our wives, daughters, girlfriends, etc in the half marathon that weekend. It was a very busy weekend (as most are in DisneyWorld), but it was a very comfortable and quaint hotel to stay in the whole week.

Others in my group said the beds were hard and/or uncomfortable, but I found them quite comfortable. Not one of us complained of losing sleep due to uncomfortable beds, and I was usually asleep within 3 minutes of laying down. In Disney, pretty much any bed will suffice, hard, soft, everything in between, it's not hard to get sleep when you're exhausted.

My one small gripe would be the shower head in our bathroom. Rather then a nice stream, or even a low flow dribble (like many large hotels), the water flew out of the shower head in a painful mist! It was difficult to rinse any soap off! Hardly any water came out, but the little bit that did was shot out at 1,000,000,000 MPH. Nothing would have sounded better after a long day on your feet than a nice relaxing shower. Unfortunately, this wasn't possible here...at all.

Everything else was great. A nice convenience store/breakfast cafe was right in the building. Quick breakfast, sip of coffee and we were off and running on another day in Disney. If Epcot is your favorite park, then it is very hard to beat the location of beach club! A quick boat ride gets you to Hollywood Studios (my favorite), and convenient busses get you to the other 2 parks with ease.

I would definitely stay at the Beach Club again next time!

Have fun on your Disney Vacation!

Just returned from a three night stay in two bedroom Villa at Disney's Beach Club. The room was on the fourth floor and over looked the quiet pool. The fireworks from the Magic Kingdom were visible from the suite. The suite was clean and well stocked. The pool area was superb...loved the theming of Stormalong Bay. The staff was helpful and friendly. Bus service to the parks was great. Never had to wait more than ten minutes. Can't wait to return!

I'm a little late reviewing, as our trip was in August 2012. Disney trips are always fun however I wouldn't stay here again...hotel needed a little TLC in my opinion, just seemed as though its getting a little run down. I wasn't impressed with the runaway bay pool, it was way too crowded and obnoxious. We spent more time at the private DVC pool. Did not like Cape may buffet either, but that just may be my taste preference. Location of the hotel was great, a 5 min walk from my favorite park (Epcot). Boardwalk was great too. Can't wait for Grand Floridian DVC to open--that will be my spot next trip!

We have been to the Beach Club many times. Other than once when we have a room in a bad location, all visits were like this one - superb. Great service, a short walk to Epcot, a nice walk or boat ride to Hollywood Studios. Disney service and amenities are worth the price. 4 pools in the complex with the Yacht Club.

Try Beaches and Cream for some ice cream.

We have stayed at lots of Disney Resorts over the years. This is perhaps our favorite. The hotel is beautiful and the kids loved the pool. Although some of the rooms could use a little update, you will not be disappointed. Epcot is a short 5 minute walk and Hollywood Studios is a 20 minute walk. There is plenty to keep the whole family busy. The kids also liked the arcade. The food is typical Disney fare. The scenery is well worth a stay here you will feel like you are at a beach town the minute you step foot on the property.

I loved this resort, it was so much fun! The rooms were large, the view amazing, quiet and clean, convenient to everything! We could walk around the boardwalk, walk to the Swan and Dolphin, the pool was wonderful, we walked to Epcot. I loved this location. The rooms had no bnoise between the rooms or floors. The walk was quite lenghty from the lobby area to our rooms but we didn't mind the walk at all. As soon as we walked ina nd saw the Epcot view, we just loved every minute/ If I could complain about anything it is that it would be convenient to have 2 entire bathrooms in a room designed for 5 (4 adults and a toddler). It wasn't much of a problem, though. I hope to stay here again and again! Very relaxing atmosphere.
