Welcome to the 2015 7 in 7 series where we will be visiting 7 Walt Disney World resorts in 7 days. We will be sharing our experiences through blogs, photos and videos from our time at these resorts. We will also be publishing a daily video where we talk about our thoughts after visiting each resort. Check back daily to see where we went next.
Day 4: For the first resort, we visited Disney’s Beach Club Resort and the Beach Club Villas. These resorts are located in the Epcot area. They are a short walk away from the International Gateway that will allow quick access to Epcot. I recently did a walking tour of the Beach Club. We had a concierge level room and a 2 bedroom villa for our stay.
There are a total of 1213 rooms (combined with the Yacht Club). The room size is 380 square feet. The resort joins the Yacht Club in the middle. The Beach Club is recognizable by the blue and white buildings; the Beach Club Villas are painted a pale green with white accents.
Stormalong Bay at the Beach Club is probably the most popular pool on Walt Disney World property. You will need to show a MagicBand or resort key to enter the pool area. The kids will find plenty to enjoy, while the adults can sit and relax and enjoy a drink from Hurricane Hanna’s Grille.
The Beach Club Villas are located behind the Beach Club Resort. These are part of the Disney Vacation Club. If you are not a Disney Vacation Club member (DVC) you can reserve here if there is availability.
Dunes Cove is the quiet pool for the DVC villas. You can order lunch to be delivered poolside while you enjoy the pool, hot tub, pool table. There is also a picnic table and grill available if you would like to cook out.
These 2 resorts have plenty of spaces if you would like to escape from people and crowds. These resting areas were one of my favorite things about these resorts. It is a great place to relax and read or catch up on your email.
This resort still hasn’t captured my heart but it is a beautiful resort. Check back for the next installment of our 7 in 7 series.
