Disney’s Beach Club Resort, is quite possibly, the best resort on Walt Disney World property, and i’m here to tell you why.
Disney’s Beach Club Villas
Walking into the Disney Vacation Club (DVC) building is so gorgeous and you’re immediately hit with the soft scents of aloe and clover. Basically, if you could bottle up nautical, fresh, summer air, it would be this.
I was given room number 122, immediately off the lobby area of the DVC building, which initially, I was wondering how loud it was going to be. But I won’t leave you in suspense. I heard not one noise during my two night stay here! You would think with all the foot traffic going back and forth from other guests going to and from their rooms, I would hear something But nope. Truly peaceful and quiet. It was amazing!
Beach Club Room Tour – Deluxe Studio
When walking into my room, the kitchenette is located on my left. Pretty much the same setup as my stay at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge.
Your coffee maker is a standard 12 cup coffee maker that holds a basket filter. Absolutely bring some ground coffee and filters with you from home or order some from a grocery delivery company.
The sink area is separated by a door that leads into the toilet and shower area, which I totally appreciate! Makes for getting ready with other family members that much quicker in the mornings.
Want to know what I found in that closet that I didn’t find at others? A VACUUM! From what I understand, Disney is trying to get rid of vacuums and brooms from the rooms. Which I just can’t wrap my head around. Wouldn’t you think that would actually help Mousekeeping by trying to clean up the room yourself, rather than having to call them? Especially since they’re still short-staffed. But that’s another discussion for another day.
In the shower area, there was not a shampoo/conditioner/body wash dispenser like they had at a few other resorts I checked in to during my solo trip. Rather, I was given the travel sized products which i’m totally okay with!
The Living Space
I loved the look and feel of the bed and couch area in my room at Disney’s Beach Club Resort! It was so fresh, clean and open feeling to me.
In my YouTube video oh my Disney’s Beach Club Room Tour, I show that there’s not much as far as storage goes. However, once I turned the camera off, I found one more hidden drawer that could be used as storage that I didn’t initially see!
This coffee table has a fairly large drawer to hold necessities, kids toys, and/or clothes in! This definitely helps out since the drawers on the dresser are super small and shallow.
Beach Club Room Tour – Outlets & USB Ports
There was a typical amount of outlets and USB ports located in the room itself, but not as much as their should be given the amount of electronics that families travel with. I still think Disney’s All-Star Movies has the best set-up as far as outlets go! Because there isn’t a lot of outlets available, I would recommend bringing a power strip with you.
The Murphy Bed
Hidden amongst the dresser and under the TV, is a twin sized murphy bed. It was incredibly easy to pull down, but not much so that a child can do this himself. There are two buttons on either side, and only one needs to be pressed down to pull down the bed.
And this shows the only Disney touch in the room…a sleeping Donald Duck! How darling is this?
If you want to see how easily this bed comes down, check out my full Disney’s Beach Club Room Tour on my YouTube channel!
My room was located on the first floor, which gave me a garden view with a patio. The only thing slightly off-putting about the patios, is that there are no privacy screens. You’re able to see every one else’s patio area, and they can see yours.
I think a good addition to the first floor patios would be those short white wooden privacy screens, don’t you think? Just to give a little bit of privacy for those that like to have their coffee outside in the mornings.
While I don’t have great pictures of the pool, I did take a little video of the pool area. This pool is by far the most popular pool on Walt Disney World property. Not only do they have lots of slides for the kids, they have a sand bottom pool! How cool is that! I will warn you, because this pool is so popular, chairs go super fast and gets really busy fairly early. Also, because everyone wants to visit this pool, Cast Members will scan your MagicBand or My Disney Experience App to make sure that you are in fact a guest of the Beach Club or the Yacht Club. No other outside guests staying on Disney property are allowed in, which makes it that much more exclusive.
While I didn’t get to enjoy the pool, I did however, get to enjoy the poolside bar, Hurricane Hannah’s. My husband (who joined my solo trip later on!) and I both ordered a Sunshine Margarita, which had Lunazul Reposado Tequila, Cointreau and Sweet-and-Sour with Orange and Lime Juices. Our bartender really took her time with these and made them perfect! I’m not a fan of overly syrupy cocktails, but she was not heavy handed on the sweet & sour, which I really appreciated. I do believe Hurricane Hanna’s is accessible to anyone walking along the outside of the Beach Club property, so if you don’t see a long line, make a pit stop here!
