The Beach Club is one of the Epcot area resorts and has been on my “to do” list for a while. The launch of Disney’s buy 4 get 3 free promotion gave me the perfect opportunity to try this resort at an affordable price. I love the idea of walking to Epcot. Especially since Epcot’s International Flower and Garden Festival will be in full bloom when we arrive in May. You can also walk to Disney Studios from the Beach Club but it’s about a 15 minute walk.
You can always expect a little bit more at Disney’s deluxe resorts. They will have queen and king size beds rather than full size. The rooms are larger also.
Storm Along Bay is a pool that is more like a mini waterpark that both the Yacht Club and Beach Club guests share. It includes a water slide, lazy river and a sand bottom pool.
Bus service is available to all the parks except Epcot. The entrance to Epcot from the Beach Club (walking) is in the World Showcase which doesn’t open till 11 a.m. but I’m told, Epcot resort guests can still use that entrance and a cast member will guide you to the open area of the park – Future World.
The Beach Club rooms have recently been renovated and the pool (Storm Along Bay) area will be renovated in phases from Janurary to April 2009.
