How to Get There
We are DVC members, passholders and have been since 2000. We want to do one last night and run into a few issues with housekeeping exc. But in Disney fashion they reach out to make sure they are listening to their guess. This is why we have visited for 23 straight years you will not find a better place to vacation.
Date of stay: March 2019
We visited Beaches & Cream during out last trip to Disney in 2016 and the kids asked if one day we could stay at the Beach Club hotel (we were staying in Port Orleans at the time). We told them probably not as it was expensive, but that didn't stop them asking all the time!
So when we were planning our trip this year we decided to book a couple nights at Beach Club to surprise the kids - and to make it easier to get to the 5.30am start of the Disney 5k!
When we pulled into the hotel the kids were VERY surprised and it certainly lived up to our expectations.
The staff on arrival were very helpful and although our room wasn't ready (we were there mid morning so didn't expect it to be) we were checked in and our luggage taken care of so we could go off to Epcot. We received an email at around 2pm to tell us our room was ready and its location.
We were given a ground floor room which was very spacious with 2 queen beds. It was very clean and there were plenty of towels. There were also plenty of toiletries as well as tea and coffee.
The hotel pool was fantastic and the pool bar does a great Pina Colada!! We had breakfast in the Marketplace as it was quick and easy so we could get into the parks. The Mickey waffles were great as was the service.
The hotel is in a fantastic location, you can easily walk to Epcot and Hollywood studios - or you can take a boat to either if you don't fancy the walk. You can also walk or take a boat over the The Boardwalk which was great in the evening for dinner and a drink.
We ate at Beaches & Cream again (yes we had The Kitchen Sink!) but didn't make it to any of the other restaurants.
Although not a particularly cheap hotel (we paid approx £700 for 2 nights) the location and ease of access to the parks as well as the hotel inself is certainly worth the price.
If I had to say something negative about the hotel all I could find to complain about is that the air con in the corridor was too efficient which made it very cold. But that really is a first world problem so not really a complaint just an observation! LOL
We would certainly stay here again and I know the kids would jump at the chance too!
So i have PSTD from lack of sleep after staying in this place on a business trip for four nights. Apparently, if the Swan and Dolphin (aka the “Fish”) are booked, some genius thought it’d be cool to book overflow at Disney’s Beach Club Resort.
It was not.
If you need overflow accommodations for a conference at the Swan/Dolphin DEMAND the Yacht side of the adjoined hotels. Mostly adults there. Quiet adults.
The main issue with the Beach side was not the 1,000 kids, but rather, their parents. About 12:30 am the first night, I was awoken. The first time. By screaming, running kids. After about a half hour of this l was just about to get up and go to the lobby in my, errr sleeping, well, how I sleep (hint: I would have been on YouTube and would now likely have a mandated court appearance if I had followed through with this), before it stopped. What kind of parents allow their 8-10 year old boys to run laps while screaming at a hotel you ask? The kind at Disney’s Beach Club Resort.
So cool, it’s 1:00 am, let’s sleep, right? Wrong. The A/C duct made such a ridiculous noise that I woke up at about 2:00 am thinking I had stayed in an immersive experience room by mistake. I was expecting something to come out of there so I put my 3D glasses on. Just kidding on that, but I did turn the A/C off. So cool, I’ll just sweat while I sleep.
And I did, until 4:00 am when the deliveries started showing up. Disney, that research you are doing on designing the loudest casters is sure paying off. Good grief. Dozens of deliveries. Logistical damned geniuses they are. Every 5 minutes. All with those same metal casters.
Every night and early AM this went on. I have not slept since last Saturday. It is Thursday night as I type this.
Yes, I asked to move and they were booked.
If you are on a family vacation, I am sure you will be fine here - you can exchange knowing glances with other dads shelling out $250 for breakfast for 4 (featuring Disney characters that haven’t been on TV for 40 years!).
Do not, however, under ANY circumstance, stay in 2662 above the lobby. You’ve been warned. You’re welcome.
I stayed here for a work function and had never stayed here before. I had never stayed in a Deluxe resort at Walt Disney World so this was a special treat for me. I was in a garden view and the location of the room was perfect. I was right by the elevators so I knew I wouldn't get lost going to my room late at night. The resort is a perfect location as you can walk to both Epcot and Hollywood Studios. I ate many times at the Beach Club Market and the Salads were the best. The room was perfect and much larger than the moderate and value resorts. I can't wait to stay here again with my family in the near future!
Our family of four stayed for 5 nights as part of a 2 week Florida holiday. This was a special milestone birthday for me and we went all out. We have stayed previously at All-Star Music, Port Orleans French Quarter and Animal Kingdom Lodge - the Beach Club is my new favourite.
Our room (and I believe most of them are like this) had two queen beds and a day-bed - which my 13 year old son said was comfy. The room was clean and airy and we loved having a small balcony to sit out on. The toiletries that are provided are fantastic and I still have a few as a souvenir that I use to remind me of our stay.
Hotel service was excellent right from check-in to check-out - both super easy.
Being on the Disney dining plan, we all took advantage of filing our mugs with coffee and tea in the mornings - they did a good job of meeting the demands of the morning rush.
I'm so happy that we managed to take a few breaks throughout the trip to enjoy the pool - it was hard to get my 11 year old out of there.
The real reason for choosing the Beach Club was the location between Epcot and Hollywood Studios. I made sure we got park hopper tickets and we tried to get to Epcot to end many of our nights and enjoy the garden festival. It was truly amazing to walk in through the International Gateway and never have a huge crowd. The quick boat ride to Hollywood Studios was also fantastic and we did the walk back to the hotel one night - wasn't bad at all.
We didn't eat on hotel property other than some ice cream from Hurricane Hannah's takeout window (huge portion for a snack credit!) and did snack a bit along the Boardwalk (so convenient) - but I would definitely try dinner at Cape May if we ever find ourselves back here.
Staying at the Beach Club was a dream come true for me and it totally lived up to my expectations. The only not-so-great part was leaving :(
