Disney's Beach Club Villas

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We stayed in a one bedroom villa. We requested a quiet room, which we definitely got. My only issue with the noise was that you could hear toilets running over night. Aside from this, this place is easily one of my favorite hotels in Disney. I love the location near EPCOT. The pool is absolutely beautiful!! In addition, this hotel seamlessly combines family friendly with tasteful beachy decor. We are planning on coming back in March 2019, and will be staying here again!

Excellent facilities. Quite a private pool and surrounding area which is good as the location is very central to the parks. Only criticism would be that the joining doors in a studio mean you can hear everything next door. Not ideal when you don’t know them and they aren’t the quietest.

My family of 2 adults and 2 small children stayed in a studio villa the first week of April (peak Easter crowds!). The actual smell of the lobby of the resort is heavenly. Our room was spotless, and had been recently renovated. The kitchenette was invaluable for being able to have breakfast items, snacks and bottled water at the ready. Stormalong Bay is the best pool we've ever been to, and it is massive! My kiddos are still small so we mostly stayed in the shallow area with the sand peninsula. So fun! The restaurants on site are fantastic, particularly Cape May Cafe, where we were lucky enough to enjoy both breakfast and dinner. The convenient access to Epcot cannot be beat, it's literally a 5 minute walk to the International Gateway. It's also about a 7 minute walk around Crescent Lake to the Boardwalk, which is a fantastic place to explore. We took the boat to Hollywood Studios in about 15 minutes. Nightly movies and campfires on the beach are a fun way to end the day. I highly recommend!

We have stayed at a lot of Disney hotels. This was our favorite. We had booked a villa studio, but were upgraded to a one bedroom villa. We really loved the location of this resort as we were able to walk to Epcot, Hollywood Studios, and the Boardwalk. It made our overall experience at Disney World much different than previous visits. We also really enjoyed the pool and used it more than any pool at any other resort. This was my daughter's 10th birthday trip and it ended up being just about perfect.

This is probably the sixth year in a row, we stayed at Beach Club villas -- obviously we like it. Great location (close to EPCOT and Boardwalk), which means nice areas to walk. Rooms are great (very clean), and good service. We keep coming back, and will continue to do so.

The best location in Disney !. Love the easy access to Epcot and Hollywood Studios. An evening walk over to Boardwalk is a great way to end a busy day. If you get the chance stop in at Atlantic Dance ,worth the visit and hotel location works well to get home.Rooms are well appointed and refurbishment has updated them well. Love it .

My family of 5 stayed at a 2 BR villa, with my mother and sister also in a standard room at the main resort. Our villa was on the 2nd floor and was a short distance to the elevator which made distance to the lobby and marketplace very manageable. We found the villa was very spacious for our needs. Had groceries delivered by garden grocer which helped save $$ for daily meals. The villas were a short walk across to the bus location for the parks which was useful for early morning departure to the parks with the kids. The location is fantastic. VERY short walk to Epcot and the boardwalk area. Short boat ride to Hollywood Studios too. We enjoyed the Star Wars fireworks from the boat launch area one evening. Can also see some of MK fireworks from the front of the resort and Illuminations can be seen and especially heard from this location. We missed out on the slide at the pool which was closed for refurbishment during our stay. However the pool itself was very enjoyable. Kids loved making sandcastles in the shallow pool while I enjoyed the hot tub and the lazy river. I would definitely not hesitate to stay at this resort in future WDW vacations.

The dvc villas are amazing (amazingly expensive, but worth it). We are only staying two nights and have already walked to Hollywood studios. We are in a two bedroom villa, with a king and two queens. There is a pullout queen sofa as well. Two full baths, with one soaking tub in the master. The beds are very comfortable and the room is very quiet (we are on the 4th floor). Other than the price, this is a perfect location and room. Today, it is only 70, so we are skipping the heated pool. Btw, if you pin trade, they have a nice pin book at the front desk.

We stayed at Disney's Beach Club Villas from 2/2-2/5 in a deluxe studio villa. The DVC villas are right off the main building, a short walk to the Beach Club Marketplace, the lobby, and the bus stop. The location of the resort simply cannot be beat - a five minute walk to the International Gateway entrance of Epcot and a 15-minute walk to Hollywood Studios (or a short boat ride); the buses run to Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom. The buses were shared between the Beach and Yacht Clubs, which are next door to each other. The great appeal of this resort is not only the location, but the fact that you have so many amenities surrounding you - Beach & Yacht Club share an amazing pool, Stormalong Bay, and you can take advantage of many restaurant offerings at both resorts (we personally visited and enjoyed Beaches & Cream and the Yachtsman, as well as the bar/lounge area of the Ale & Compass). The Boardwalk resort is also a short walk away, offering even more dining and entertainment options. Our deluxe studio at Beach Club was a bit larger than a standard resort room and was a perfect amount of space for the two of us, though you could easily sleep a family of four or five comfortably. The room is tastefully decorated and the patio was a nice place to sit and enjoy the morning air (it was private and very little foot traffic where we were located, even though it was on the first floor). There's a small kitchen area with a mini fridge, microwave, and sink. The closet was a good size and there were drawers for additional storage. We've stayed at several resorts on Disney property, and this was up there as one of our favorites. The location and amenities are a huge draw and the cast members we encountered at the resort were lovely. We hope to stay here again in the future during the Food & Wine Festival at Epcot!

Yes. All of them. ALL the boxes. Because Disney World is expensive and you only have a limited amount of time but you want to be at the parks (not on a bus commuting to and from a park but actually AT the parks), and spend time at the pool (but not a small crowded pool like I can do at home), and it’s my vacation too so can you throw in some sand and make it pretty so I can pretend we’re on an island and not in Orlando? Relax. Breathe. Planning for this trip is exhausting....save yourself the work and pick this resort. Disney’s Beach Club Villas checks all the boxes. Perfectly situated between Epcot and the Hollywood studios (easy 8 min walk to epcot, 18 min walk to HS or free boat rides to both), the Beach Club resort offers the best pool in all of Disney World. Sand bottom with and a lazy river, a big pirate themed slide and a quick service stop that serves their kids meals out of pails (with shovels!). Yes, there’s plenty of lounge chairs and a full service bar for you. The beach club pool is the ONLY private pool in all of disney world - no pool hopping from guests of other resorts allowed so you’ll be asked to show your magic band to get in. That said, the pool can get a wee it crowded in the afternoons but fear not! There are at least three other private smaller pools on the property that you can use if you’d like a quieter atmosphere. Another plus? Easy 7 min walk to the Boardwalk for nightly free entertainment (check out Coney Island Chris’s act) and a great spot to get homemade ice cream (love the coffee toffee crunch). Villa rooms have kitchens so you can save money by eating breakfast in the room...order your cereal and milk and frozen waffles in advance from garden grocer and they will deliver your groceries to the resort where the beach club folks will deliver them to your room. The Beach Club is home to Cape May Cafe - a great character breakfast option if you’re looking to get autographs from Minnie and the gang without waiting in line. They also do a clam bake themed all you can eat dinner buffet complete with crab legs and corn on the cob that is pricey but a terrific meal. What did you forget? Sunscreen? Benadryl? Your flip flops? No worries...the convenient store inside the resort has you covered. Along side souvenirs and some food service items like sandwiches and hot coffee, you can expect to find anything you might have forgotten but at a slightly inflated cost. For example, a prepackaged box of 12 entenmann’s donuts normally sold for $4 at your grocery store is $6. Convenient but not cheap. I would highly recommend this location to families but also to couples who are visiting without kids and plan to spend the majority of their time at Epcot.
