Disney’s Beach Club Villas opened on July 1, 2002 and was the fourth Disney Vacation Club Resort operating at Walt Disney World. It sits on 6 acres of land and consists of 282 units.
Location and Transportation
The resort is in walking distance of both Epcot and Disney’s Hollywood studios theme parks. Across the lake, and only a short walk, is Disney’s Boardwalk, home to a great nightlife and a variety of eateries. Also in walking distance is the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin resorts. Other resorts and parks are accessible by the Disney operated buses.
Vacation homes at Disney’s Beach Club Villas are broken down into three different sized accommodations, ranging from studios that sleep 4, one-bedroom villas that sleep 4, and two-bedroom villas that sleep 8.
Studios at Disney’s Beach Club Villas features a queen sized bed, double sleeper sofa, a nightstand, a small round table with 2 chairs, a ceiling fan, TV, closet, a small patio/balcony, and a kitchenette. The kitchenette comes with a microwave, toaster, 12-cup coffee maker, a sink, and a mini-refrigerator. The patio/balcony features 2 chairs and a small table.
One and Two Bedroom Villas:
One and Two Bedroom Villas at Disney’s Beach Club Villas feature a great room with a couch, chair, TV, two-person dining table, and a fully equipped kitchen. The master bedroom features a king sized bed, chair and a large closet. In the master bath, there is a jacuzzi tub, 2 sinks, and a stand-up shower. Off the living room is a closet with a stack-style washer and dryer. In a two bedroom vacation home, the second bedroom is off the living room. This is almost 100% comparable to a studio.
