Beach Club Villas

The Beach Club is Disney’s New England-style, beach-themed resort. 6 acres of villas located at the Beach Club are part of DVC. In addition to top-notch dining, recreation, and amenities, the Beach Club Villas are conveniently located near several Disney World parks and resorts.

5. Proximity To Other Disney Resorts

The Disney’s Beach Club Villas are very close to two other Disney Resorts: Disney’s Yacht Club Resort and Disney’s BoardWalk Resort! Essentially, the Beach Club and Yacht club are connected and share a lot of amenities. The BoardWalk sits on the opposite side of Crescent Lake and is just a quick walk or boat ride from the Beach Club. This means you can easily enjoy the dining and shopping options at the these other two resorts! At Yacht Club, Yachtsman Steakhouse is a stand-out, fine dining location with a menu of beef and seafood entrées. Over at the BoardWalk, there are several entertainment offerings you won’t want to miss including dueling pianos at Jellyrolls!

4. Fun Dining Options

In addition to the nearby restaurants at Yacht Club and BoardWalk, there are two unique dining locations right at the Beach Club! Near the lobby is Cape May Cafe which offers buffet meals at breakfast and dinner. In the morning, this location hosts Minnie’s Beach Bash Breakfast. During this experience, Minnie and some of her friends join you while you dine. This is an efficient way to meet some of the characters outside of the parks!

If you are looking for something sweet, check out the Beaches & Cream Soda Shop. While the menu at Beaches & Cream offers off-the-grill meals, like burgers, it is best known for dessert. This is especially true for their signature Kitchen Sink which comes with 8 scoops of ice cream (Vanilla, Chocolate, Strawberry, Cookies ‘n’ Cream, and Mint Chocolate Chip), hot fudge, peanut butter, Snickers, brownies, and ever other topping available!

3. Stormalong Bay Pool

DVC’s Beach Club Resort has one of the most elaborate pools at Walt Disney World: Stormalong Bay! This 3-acre pool is practically a mini water park with a lazy river and a couple of waterslides. The biggest waterslide is 230-feet-long and starts at the top of the pool’s shipwreck replica. Perhaps the most unique feature of Stormalong Bay is that it features a sand-bottom so you can really feel like you are swimming at the beach!

2. Lots Of Quiet Areas

If relaxing at Stormalong Bay isn’t for you, there are several spots at Disney’s Beach Club that are a great alternative. The DVC Villas at Beach Club are in the green building which has its own lobby and sitting areas. Past the lobby of the villa building is a small sitting area known as the Breezeway. This room is outfitted with charming, New England-style decor.

Also attached to the lobby in the villa building is the Drawing Room. This area features a pool table, a large television, and plenty of comfortable seats. These two quiet rooms are great for relaxing after a day at the parks. They can also be useful for those who need to get some work down during their vacation.

1. Easy Access To EPCOT And Disney’s Hollywood Studios

DVC’s Beach Club Villas are located in EPCOT resort area. This means that it is very easy to get to EPCOT‘s World Gateway entrance between the France and United Kingdom pavilions. Perhaps the most convenient way to get to EPCOT from the Beach Club is by walking! The walk takes about 5-10 minutes. If you don’t want to walk, boat transportation is offered to EPCOT from the Friendship boat launch near the lighthouse. You can also take a 20-minute boat ride to Disney’s Hollywood Studios from this launch. It is also possible to walk to Hollywood Studios but its a bit longer than EPCOT at about 15-20 minutes.
