The Beach Club combines the casual comfort of a beach-front location with the luxuries of a Disney Deluxe resort. It’s a favorite among guests for its cozy atmosphere, its many services and amenities, its access to fine dining, and its excellent (and extensive) sandbottom pool. And you can’t beat the location: the Beach Club is within easy walking distance of Epcot and the BoardWalk, as well as its “sister resort,” the Yacht Club.

The Beach Club, like all Disney resorts, is smoke-free. Designated outdoor smoking areas are indicated on the Resort Map.

Disney’s Beach Club Resort VIP Top Tips


Top Tips

Request a room with a full balcony or a patio. Most rooms at the Beach Club only have the small Juliet balconies.

Enjoy the close proximity to Epcot’s World Showcase. While there is a boat launch available to Epcot, you can get there faster by walking.

You can access Disney’s Hollywood Studios by boat. You may also enjoy a brisk walk around the BoardWalk down to Disney’s Hollywood Studios. In general, you may find the boat ride shorter than walking to Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

These resorts offer one of the best pools on Walt Disney World property. The Yacht & Beach Club Resorts, while separate, share the pool area. There is a “shipwreck” that offers the entry point to the main water slide. Some areas of the pool have a sandy bottom.

Looking for childcare services? The Beach Club is one of only a few locations that offer these services on property.

These resort hotels are located near the BoardWalk, offering a short walk to additional restaurants and nightlife that do not require park admission.

Sometimes Disney’s bus transportation may share buses with the other resort hotels in the Epcot area around the BoardWalk. If you find yourself stopping at multiple stops, you may want to get off at the first stop and just walk the rest of the way. This is sometimes quicker than stopping at each resort hotel if the bus loop is being shared with multiple resorts.
