Top 5 Reasons You’ll Love Staying at Disney’s Beach Club Resort
The Beach Club and the Yacht Club are two pretty amazing resorts located within the Epcot area. They are sister resorts and share the amenities. As I write about the Beach Club you can say the same about the Yacht Club. Where to begin? So many reasons why you and your family will love this place. Here are the top 5 reasons you’ll love staying at the Beach Club!
1. Stormalong Bay. Yes, this pool is so big it deserves its own name. Stormalong Bay is like a small water park, and you will want to spend an entire day here. You have a huge pirate themed water slide for you to enjoy. If this is too big or intimidating for the younger members of your family, Disney has thought of some magical alternatives. They have a smaller water slide that’s perfect for the younger ones in your family. The pool also has a lazy river, complete with floats up for grabs. It also features a sandy bottom area, which is the perfect spot to build sand castles, and yes Disney even has sand toys to share!
2. The restaurants: After swimming in Stormalong Bay all day, you likely will have worked up a big appetite. Guests can try one of the fantastic restaurants just steps away. Beaches ‘n Cream is conveniently located right outside the pool area. Beaches ‘N Cream is the home to the famous Kitchen Sink dessert. Disney practically dares you to try this! Warning, you might only want to to attempt to devour this ginormous sundae with all your friends. Cape May Cafe, located just outside the lobby of the Beach Club, includes a character breakfast with Minnie and her pals all dressed in their beach gear. For dinner here, you can enjoy a delicious, all you can eat seafood buffet. Yachtsman Steakhouse is located over at the Yacht Club. This is a signature restaurant. Here you’ll enjoy some of the best steak you have ever had with top notch service! While these restaurants will likely need a reservation to get in, you will be not be disappointed if you choose Hurricane Hanna’s. This is a quick service restaurant located in the pool area. You can also refill your resort refillable mugs here, and find healthy choices for everyone.
Rooms: The variety of rooms here will appeal to most families. Guests can stay at the Beach Club in a standard room accommodating 5 or a two bedroom accommodating 7 family members. Or for families wanting a little more space, guests can stay at the Beach Club Villa’s which can accommodate up to 8 people in a two bedroom. The Beach Club Villas will offer a little more space than your average room. The best part is any one or two bedroom villa will have a full kitchen and a washer and dryer. A washer and dryer may not seem exciting, but going home with clean laundry is pretty nice!!
Location, location, location: What’s better than being able to walk to two theme parks? Nothing! That’s right, from the Beach Club you can walk to Epcot and Hollywood Studios. Hollywood Studios is a little longer of a walk and if your feet are too tired to walk, you can relax while taking a short boat ride to either park. After a day of swimming and relaxing by the pool, you can also stroll over to the Boardwalk area. Each evening Disney has entertainment on the Boardwalk. You can watch a performer or take part in a game. While enjoying the Boardwalk entertainment you can purchase a margarita from Joe’s Marvelous Margarita stand or an ice cream from Ample Hills Creamery. The location of the Beach Club is something everyone will enjoy from walking back from dinner at Epcot to strolling around the Boardwalk you will love it here.
The New Minnie Van service!! This is brand new and just announced but will make staying at the Beach Club extra special. It’s currently offered at Disney’s Boardwalk, Yacht and Beach Club resorts. While staying at the Beach Club, you can be one of the first to try out this mode of transportation. It works really easily with the Lyft app and you can ask for help at bell services. When you have a dinner reservation at the Animal Kingdom Lodge and have spent so much time in the pool you are worried you may not make it in time, the Minnie Van is the perfect way to get there in time.
