Disney’s Beach Club Villas
One of my all-time favorite places to stay on-property, especially during the hot Florida summer, is Disney’s Beach Club Villas. Beach Club is located right across from our home resort of Disney’s Boardwalk Villas, but has a totally different atmosphere.
We have stayed in studios on all our visits to Beach Club. Each studio has the standard DVC queen-size bed and sleeper sofa, plus a kitchenette with microwave, coffeemaker and mini-fridge. Beach Club is a short boat-ride or walk to both Epcot & Hollywood Studios, but what sets it apart from every single other Disney property is the pool – Stormalong Bay.
Stormalong Bay is a sand-bottomed winding pool with currents, jets and a shipwreck waterslide. There are also shallow sand dunes for the kids to play in scattered around.
My favorite place to enjoy a treat at Bay Lake is Beaches and Cream Soda Shop. Here you can enjoy the famous “Kitchen Sink.” My husbands favorite place to eat on property – for the mussels – is Cape May Cafe.
The Ship Shape health club is open 24/7 and is outstanding. Tip: if staying here and checking out at 11am the showers are available to use prior to leaving property for a late-night flight.
