Located within the Walt Disney World Resort, Disney Beach Club Villas Resort offers the opportunity to relax and unwind with family and friends in one of the most popular vacation destinations in the world.
Friends of ours recently stayed here and helped with this family-friendly guide. The resort sits on Crescent Lake with the Yacht Club Resort and has rooms close to both Epcot and Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Across the lake is the easily accessible Disney Boardwalk.

Whether you’re looking to relax or have fun, the Beach Club is the perfect place for your next vacation. If you are comparing the Yacht Club vs beach club, then the beach club has a proper beach and is more relaxed than the Yacht Club – which is often booked for conventions. Otherwise, they are very similar and share great facilities.

Note there is little or no shade around the pool (either natural or umbrellas) and it is a big hotel, so it can be quite a walk from your room to reception.
Like all Disney Hotels, you need to book in advance for all the meals as most are sit down choices rather than Quick Service.
Our friends said, “We loved the proximity to both Epcot and the Boardwalk (walking distance), which gave great opportunities for food and entertainment in the evening. The Boardwalk is particularly good if you don’t have park to park tickets. The fact that you are first pick up on the Disney buses make it easy to get around, and all the other parks are only 15 minute bus ride away.”
