This was my first stay at the Beach Club Resort. The location is unbeatable. It was a 5 minute walk from our room to the World Showcase entrance of EPCOT. It was also an approx. 15 minute walk to Disney's Hollywood Studios, although you can also take a boat or the Skyliner there, as well. The pool complex is amazing. The lobby was decorated beautifully for Christmas! All of the staff that we interacted with were very friendly and helpful. We were in a room that had not been recently up-dated, but it was fine. We were happy to see lots of Disney character art on the walls. We were fortunate enough to get a room with a full size balcony, but it is important to note that unlike other deluxe resorts, not all rooms have a full balcony. I'm not sure why they designed the resort that way, especially when everyone is paying top dollar to stay here and only some guests get a balcony they can enjoy. There are plenty of sit-down food choices here, (often requiring reservations) but we found the quick service/grab-and-go options to be limited. If you purchase prepared food in the marketplace, you have to go elsewhere to eat because there isn't any seating. There was a very unpleasant part of our stay, but it doesn't really reflect on the resort. Three out of the four nights of our stay we were awakened by fireworks long after the parks closed. It happened between 12:30-1:15am and lasted for approx. 15 -17 minutes each time. A cast member told us that is was fireworks testing for a new nighttime show at EPCOT. It gets dark at 5pm this time of year and EPCOT closed at 9:30pm so I'm not sure why they had to do the testing after most guests were sound asleep. My family and I were able to fall back asleep, but we met a family in the elevator who were outraged because their children were awakened and then up for half of the night. I feel that this shows a definite disrespect for the guests who were staying in the EPCOT area. Overall, it was a great stay and I would stay here again.
The front desk staff are rude. Also, upper management will not assist their guests. They will be looking right at you and not even acknowledge your presents. The resort I loved has gone downhill. We purchased water views and have a view of trees, and also request a walk-in shower. Have tube and was told there were no other rooms available. The management was unhelpful and rude. I can not wait for Universal EPIC to open the given disney run for their money.
Perfect ambience and location
This was part of a bucket list trip so we had high hopes for Beach Club and it did not disappoint Stayed for 10 nights in a garden view room. Room was nothing fancy but had a full balcony as we had requested - could see the fireworks through the trees. Bed was really comfy and there was plenty of storage and room for suitcases. Took a bit to get our bearings but we found we were quite near stairs to go out the 'secret entrance' near Epcot and the lift to the quiet pool. I did love though walking along to and down the main staircase to the lobby. It was spacious and airy and the ambience was just right for us. We visited other resorts which we felt were either really busy or too 'stuffy'. Beach Club was clearly Disney, with Characters at breakfast if you wanted and Disney cast members but wasn't 'in your face'. Quietly classy I would say. As others have said the QS isn't great but with EPCOT on your doorstep it wasn't an issue for us. We did have breakfast once - Mickey waffles sitting on the swings at the beach. What more could you ask for! One night there was a downpour so we just had drinks and appetisers at Martha's Vineyard which was great. Didn't really enjoy Stormalong Bay though which we'd been looking forward to. Although it wasn't busy it was a palaver to get to and we felt that all the beds were crammed together and there wasn't enough shade. The lazy river was soooooo slow and difficult to get a ring. Ended up using the quiet pool which was nice and relaxing although also needs more umbrellas for shade. Best part of it all though was the location. A few minutes walk from EPCOT and only 15-20 to Hollywood Studios. So good leaving these parks and being able to dodge the crowds and walk back. We used the gondolas and boats too which were very convenient. Even though we had a rental car (this was 10 days out of 3 week road trip so we'd collected it at the airport) we only used it to go to Winter Park, a supermarket and a mall and used Disney transport for all our park visits and resort hopping. We found it very efficient and reliable. All in all a fantastic stay and worth every penny.
Awesome resort - can’t wait to go back!
This was my first tine staying at this resort (I have previously stayed at the value resorts). My fiancé and I went for my 40th birthday and stayed Sunday-Saturday and loved it. It was super nice and clean, the room was had a decent view (and a mini balcony that we thought was hilarious). The walk to Epcot was amazing - about 5 minutes, not even. We went to that park multiple times, so it was very convenient to be so close. We also walked to Hollywood Studios twice - it’s about 15-20 minutes and worth it if you don’t mind the extra steps. We got a good view of the other nearby resorts on our way and it was very quiet and peaceful on the path. Catching the bus to the other parks was easy too. Staff there was great. We went to Cape May Cafe for the character breakfast on our last day and it was cute and food was good. We didn’t get a chance to go in the pool although we walked around it to check it out and it was very cool. The beach area was nice too. Next time will plan to hang out there. Would definitely recommend this resort if your favorite parks are Epcot and HS and you enjoy walking. The skyliner to/from Epcot is convenient too as another option. Will will definitely be back!
Amazing resort hotel!
We had a blast at Disney Beach Club Resort! The staff were so helpful and friendly, the room was clean and comfortable, and the amenities were outstanding. Our daughter loved the pool and could have stayed in all day long. Because it was a little chilly during our visit, the pool wasn't crowded or busy! And they heat the pool so you're comfortable even when it's chilly. We stayed in the Club Level and were very very happy. The food provided was more than adequate to fill you up for a long day at the parks and you could bring drinks and snacks with you. The only suggestion I have is to have more options on rotation. I think they rotate the food every 3 days and we were there 6 days. All in all it was a fantastic stay!
