Date Submitted: 03-08-2011Page: Disney Resorts -> Disney's Beach Club Resort
Disney's Beach Club resort is a fantastic place for both couples or those with children. The main draw for us is the location - the best onsite for anyone who enjoys dining or taking a walk at night. Within walking distance you have Epcot and Hollywood Studios, which are also serviced by the Friendship boats. Hotels around the lake, and all within a 5 min walk - are Yacht Club (adjoining), Swan and Dolphin and across the lake the Boardwalk with restaurants, shops, surrey bike rental, nightclubs and street entertainers. So there is plenty of choice of what to do after a day at the parks.
Epcot's International Gateway is a 5 min walk away, and you enter the World Showcase between France and the UK pavilions.
Buses serve all the other parks and DTD, we never waited long.
The onsite dining is excellent - Cape May Cafe for character breakfasts and Clam Bake buffets; Beaches and Cream for burgers and the famous Kitchen Sink; Yachtsman Steakhouse for Signature dining and Captain's Grill for breakfast buffets and mid range meals. The only real dining let down is counter service - there is a good, but limited choice at the Marketplace, and burgers etc at Hurricane Hanna's in the pool area. There are several small adult bar areas to enjoy a drink while waiting to eat.
Stormalong Bay is small waterpark just for Y and B club guests -( and they are strict about checking.) There are plenty of sunbeds and lots of different areas of the pool including a sand bottom area, a waterslide and a (not so) lazy river. There's also a small quiet pool and a volleyball pitch further along.
There's a gym and a hair salon next to Stormalong Bay.
The rooms were refurbished a couple of years ago and are elegantly furnished; many have a day bed as well as 2 queen beds or 1 king bed. They have either a regular balcony or a small 'Juliet' style balcony. The ground floor rooms are best (IMO) as they have a small patio area opening out onto gardens, quiet pool or a lake view.
The mousekeeping service has always been good - though as everywhere, some are better than others! The front desk staff are very helpful with any requests you have.
The beach is kept very clean and tidy (it's raked clean each morning) and there are rows of sunbeds - you can paddle in the lake but there is no swimming allowed. At night there are movies on the beach and kids can cook marshmallows.
At the end of a long day, it's just lovely to walk to Epcot or the Boardwalk for a meal and drink, then take a walk around the lake before sitting on the beach for a while watching the lights and the Friendships. We love it and will be loathe to try anywhere else now.
