How to Get There
We had a brief trip in December and stayed at Beach Club Villas. We could not have been happier with our location. We were so close to EPCOT that walking around World Showcase each day was a no-brainer. We really loved the resort, as it was cozy, accommodating, and filled with ambiance as well as quiet places to sit and relax tucked in here and there around the resort. The bus service was good, the shopping and counter service in the main areas was adequate. The resort was full according to the front desk castmember, but it didn't feel all that crowded as we moved around from place to place. The only real criticism I have is that, with the exception of the gingerbread house in the main lobby, the Christmas decorations needed serious upgrading. A number of the lighted ones at night were simply not working and during the day you could really see how old and worn they were. Also, if you are looking for space in the room, Old Key West is a better bet. Our studio was comfortable but not at all spacious. But for us the location of Beach Club Villas cannot be beaten, and we hope to stay there again.
We have been to Disneyworld many times over the years. This is our first stay at Beach Club Villas and we absolutely love it. We stayed in a One Bedroom unit in the Villas side of the resort.
The room is beautifully appointed with a full kitchen, stacked washer and dryer, soaking tub and separate shower. We requested an upper floor with a large patio, and both requests were met.
Customer service is top notch, and the cast members strive to meet all reasonable requests from guests. Parking is excellent. There is a parking fee for resort guests, but as Disney Vacation Club members we did not have to pay that.
The location can't be beat. You can walk to both Epcot and DIsney Hollywood Studios. There is also boat service to both of those parks. There are many dining and shopping options throughout the resort as well as the Yacht Club and Boardwalk resorts,,,all walkable,
The main pool is amazing, and is probably the main draw of this resort for many families. There are also a few "quiet" pools located off the beaten path.
As said, this was our first visit to this resort, but we will be staying here again in the future.
My husband and I stayed at Disney's Beach Club Resort at the Villas. The 2 bedroom condo we had was lovely and comfortable. The full size kitchen was very nice, but my favorite thing was the soaking tub in our bathroom! The beds were comfortable, the rooms were all a good size and nicely decorated. The only thing that I would change would be the couch; the material was slippery and the cushions kept sliding. Not a big deal,just annoying. The resort itself is huge! Beautiful landscape,HUGE pool,great restaurants. The cast members are wonderful,as expected. And, you can walk to Epcot and the Boardwalk. If you don't mind a longer walk, you can hoof it to Hollywood Studios. I would most definitely stay here again and highly recommend this as a vacation destination!
Hands down the best location in Disney World. We loved being able to easily walk to Epcot every night (as did our young kids). You can also walk to Hollywood Studios too, although we didn’t do to traveling with my older parents. Due to its convenient location we also felt we had the best choices for restaurants. Whether it would be at the Boardwalk or Yacht Club it was easy to grab a good bite at night after a long day (without taking a bus or boat).
We stayed in a two bedroom Villa. Although it was a short trek to the Main pool (they also have their own small one) and marketplace for drink refills, the layout and room upgrades were well worth it. The new updates were refreshing and inviting (and practical).
You must visit the pool because it has sand on the bottom! It’s better than an actual beach IMO. Also the Minnie Kitchen Sink at Beaches and Cream was a perfect way to celebrate the end of our trip.
First, let me say this is the first Disney post that I have ever had anything not positive to say. It pains me to write this. We have visited 12 times in the last 15 years. We have stayed at several properties at Disney and this is probably the worst stay we have had. We have stayed at Bay Lake, Contemporary, Wilderness Lodge, Yacht Club, Port Orleans (Riverside), Art of Animation, Caribbean Beach, Pop Century.
I am not sure if it was different because we stayed at DVC Resort, we had stayed at Bay Lake before and it wasn't like this. We never got that Disney Feeling that we are accustomed to. We checked in late after being at Animal Kingdom all day. The room was ready. We were pretty excited to stay at the Beach Club, we had never stayed there. After booking thru Disney (phone) I and the booking agent decided that Beach Club Villas (deluxe studio) would be best. Queen bed, sleeper sofa and pull down bed. We enjoy the extra bed because our 8 year enjoys her own bed and doesn't have to bunk with anyone.
Keep in mind when you read the description on the Disney website it says:
Views of Disney's Beach Club Resort, Woods, Pool or Courtyard
1 Double-Size Sleeper Sofa and 1 Queen Bed and 1 Single Pull Down Bed
Sleeps up to 5 Adults
Well, we got to the room. We didn't have one of the newly refurbished room, which was disappointing (but not a big deal, i knew there was chance) if it was they really messed up. The main bed was a double(very hard), the pull out was queen (softer than main bed) or at least bigger than the main bed and the pull down bed was fine.
NOT WHAT WE PAID FOR!!
Usually not a hotel snob or room snob. Disney is not cheap and yes there are cheaper places on property we could have stayed, we like being close to Epcot. We had such a great stay at the Yacht Club and we thought what could go wrong. After staring at the room for a moment, my wife asked if this was right? By this time it was about 45 mins from when we arrived and we were still waiting on our luggage. They were not terribly bust when we checked in at 9:00 pm.
I decided to walk down to the lobby and ask about the room to see if all studios were the same or if we drew the short straw again not what the description said or what the Cast Member told me while booking. I stopped at service desk first to check on our luggage, took them 15 mins to find it (again very not Disney like).
I proceeded to the front desk to ask about the room. The person (female) was not real helpful, maybe a new person. She assured me that we had an updated room (NO WAY) room 428. I told her this was not what the description said. There was no way this room was the same as the description. I asked to be transferred to a different room or the Beach Club. Cast Members can not directly say no. I guess all rooms were full I then asked to be transferred to a different resort (Yacht Club). No go! So now even more disappointed, i got back to the room hour total gone and still no luggage. Not the Disney way!
In the morning, we were up early to Hollywood Studios. I noticed in the DVC lobby there was concierge service desk. I again voiced my displeasure to him about the room. And again I felt like we were not a part of Disney, very unwelcoming. We paid $450 a night for this we could have stayed just about at any other Deluxe resort and saved money again, look at the description of the room. We were not staying at $50 a night hotel where we you expect this. If the room had been what it said it was there would have been no problem.
As a whole we had a great trip as always. I will not stay there again Beach Club Villas or Beach Club and will tell people to avoid there. There are much better places on property to stay. Unlike the last 11 times we have been to Disney we did not feel welcome and that is something I never thought would happen at Disney. Very disappointing and disappointing that I could not get much help from the Cast Members.
