Disney’s Beach Club Villas occupies a 6-acre site next to the Disney’s Beach Club Resort in the Epcot Theme Park Resorts area. The resort is inspired by the casual elegance of Cape May oceanfront homes built in the early 20th century, reflecting a light, comfortable ambiance as characterized by the use of whimsical “stick-style” architecture, pastel colors, porches and other decorative elements.

 Part of the Beach Club Resort 

The pale-blue-and-white "stick-style" Beach Club is "a little bit of this, a little bit of that," said Stern with a smile. Stick style, he explained, was the prevalent architecture for seaside wooden cottages in the 1860s and 1870s, "like grandmother's fabulous beach house -- ceiling fans, chintz, gingham."

The crisp colors open up the hotel's lobby with white wicker furniture, 24-foot-high ceilings, natural French limestone floors and a seashell motif. Cast members are dressed in more casual pastel knickers or dresses.

Restaurants range from an authentic clambake with a rockweed steamer in the 218-seat Cape May Cafe to Martha's Vineyard, a cozy 59-seat lounge featuring a wide variety of wines.

The centrally located Beaches & Cream old-fashioned ice cream parlour is the place to head after a swim or workout, where guests can order burgers and decadent desserts like banana splits, frozen hot cocoa, floats, shakes and malts.

The villas has there own member pool but it is a low keyed. One of the benefits of staying in the beach club is it gives you acces to Stormalong Bay. There are three lagoon areas, the sand beach, the lazy river and the more active side where the pirate ship slide exits. A spiral stair on board the life-sized shipwreck ascends to a 150-foot mast, broken and askew to serve as a flume plummeting toward a rocky outcropping where another 150 feet of spins complete a fast-moving thrill slide.

A tile-lined, 12-person Jacuzzi, reminiscent of the famous old health spas, is the centerpiece of the 4,750-square-foot Ship Shape Health Club. A steam bath, sauna and massage rooms also are included. A weight room and aerobics room both have staff trained to assist guests.

A 73,000-square-foot convention center carries through the oyster-gray color and architecture of Disney's Yacht Club Resort, with elegant, "patriotic" red, white and blue interiors. Largest space is the 36,000-square-foot Grand Harbor Ballroom.

 The No Pixie-Dust Zone 

Location, location, location...thats the theme with staying at this resort. The Beach Club Villas, along with the other resorts nestled along Crescent Lake, allows you to be more "In The Magic" than anywhere else. Your neighbors are Epcot on the right, the boardwalk directly behind you, the Yacht Club to the left and a 15-minute boat ride to Disney Hollywood Studios. With such close neighbors, you are a 5-minute walk from your room to being inside epcot and a 10-minute walk to the boardwalk for some night time entertainment. There is nothing better than a day at the park and when it is time to go back to the room, there is no 30-minute wait to catch a bus.

Stormalong Bay is the best resort pool period. This pool is more like a water park than a resort pool. You have got a lazy river that gets nearly 15 feet deep in some spots. Have fun tring to touch the bottom there! The 150-foot slide that starts on top of a pirate ship, the many waterfalls to enjoy and the world famous sand bottom. Yes, there is beach sand at the bottom to mimic being in the ocean. Need I say more.

In our adventures, we typically stay either in a studio or a one-bedroom villa when staying here. The rooms are more than adequate for a family of 4 as the sofe pulls out to a queen bed in both studio and one-bedroom. A kithenette has most of the things you will need while the one-bedroom has a full kitchen with bar. One nice feature about the one-bedroom is a washer and dryer that are in the room. Imagine going home with clean clothes. For vacation club members who have stayed elsewhere, it is the typical layout with beach themeing.
