Hotel Amenities

Hotel Amenities

Modeled after an early-20th-century seaside resort on the Eastern Seaboard, Disney's Beach Club Resort provides an upscale ambience and breezy, seafaring attitude. The resort's centerpiece is its three-acre lakeside water park, Stormalong Bay, which has water slides, a children's pool, and a white-sand beach as well as seven spa tubs and two quiet pools. Guests can pamper themselves with onsite manicures and pedicures.

This Lake Buena Vista resort offers nightly bedtime stories, a game room, playground, and the Sandcastle Club, which provides supervised children's activities (surcharge). The Ship Shape Health Club has exercise equipment and also offers massages and facials.

Guests can also rent pontoon boats, canopy boats, and Mercury WaterMouse boats at the nearby marina. Disney's Beach Club Resort shares many of these facilities with its adjacent companion property, Disney's Yacht Club Resort.

The resort has 73,000 square feet of meeting space, banquet facilities, and a business center. Complimentary scheduled transportation (via ferry or motorcoach) is provided throughout Walt Disney World Resort, including all four Theme Parks, both Water Parks, and the Downtown Disney Area. The hotel also offers complimentary high-speed Internet access and an airport shuttle.

Disney's Magical Express: Guests of this resort are eligible for complimentary Disney's Magical Express service (pre-booking required). Motor coaches pick up guests at Orlando International Airport and drop off at Walt Disney World Resort Hotels. Disney staff members pick up bags and deliver them straight to guestrooms (for arrivals between 5 AM and 10 PM). Guests arriving outside of these hours should pick up their baggage at baggage claim to carry with them on the motor coach.

A/C did not cool the room and the T.V remote also didn't work. I choose this resort because it was so close to Epcot (Walking distance) for for the price it did not meet my expectations would pick another place next time

Beautiful Disney Hotel

4 out of 5
by from UK
Posted Jul 22, 2016
Pros: We loved the beautiful newly refurbished rooms and the wonderful water park.
Cons: Check-in was very slow and took 25mins - staff moaned that Expedia bookings were difficult to process.
Location: Next to Epco, Hollywood Studios and Disney's Boardwalk
Fantastic Disney Hotel with great swimming pool. Rooms have been refurbished (badly needed this) and are now really lovely. Great soft beds and a sofa bed which our son loved sleeping in. Lower score because of the cost - not sure if it is worth the cost unless you get the free dining plan, which we did not. However, it is a firm favourite with our son and he would return every year if possible.

Pros: Excellent location within walking distance to Epcot and Boardwalk
Cons: Lobby and services top notch but rooms and hallways although clean are a bit dated.
Location: Excellent access and within walking distance to Disney's Boardwalk and Epcot Theme Park via less crowded International Gateway
Central location and short distance to Animal Kingdom, Hollywood Studios and Epcot. Beach themed swimming pools a plus.

Pros: Nice pools
Cons: There should be some kind of discount for the parks if they are going to charge that much.
Very overpriced for what you get. There seems to be a very large spread in prices based on how one books.
