Introduction to Disney's Beach Club and Yacht Club

A sandy white beach along Crescent Lake creates a feeling reminiscent of the lazy days of summer along the eastern seaboard. Relaxed yet luxurious, Disney’s Beach Club Resort shares an array of amenities with its “sister resort” Disney's Yacht Club Resort just a few feet away — a sandbottom pool, health club, full service marina and a beachfront promenade with direct access to Epcot as well as the unique shops and restaurants at Disney’s BoardWalk entertainment district. Classic surroundings capture the essence of New England luxury at the upscale Yacht Club Resort. Its comfy chairs, hardwood floors and shafts of sunlight streaming into a welcoming lobby invite you to linger.


The Beach Club

Thanks kldmom2000 for the Yacht Club photos!


Check out this YouTube video with a mini-tour of parts of the resort. Room depicted is in the Beach Club resort

The Beach Club and Yacht Club are similar resorts in terms of service and amenities, and have equal access to the shared pool complex, health club and video arcade. Both resorts have the same management team in place.

Some minor differences have been noted by guests:

Beach Club
Lighter, beachy decor in lobby and rooms
Lobby can be active and lively with families waiting for meals at Cape May
Closer to EPCOT and Marketplace Gift Shop
Approximately 50% of rooms in all room categories have full balconies. The remaining are standing balconies.


Yacht Club
Darker woods and nautical decor in lobby and rooms
Lobby is more serene
Convention attendees are more likely to be booked at YC
Closer to Hollywood Studios and Friendship Boats
Most rooms have a full balcony



Resort Map





Transportation

Motorcoach transportation is available to Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, Downtown Disney, Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach.

Water launch is available to Epcot and Disney's Hollywood Studios, Disney's Boardwalk,and the Swan and Dolphin Resorts.
Each boat makes the full circuit.
EPCOT Int Gateway -> Boardwalk Inn -> Yacht & Beach Club (shared dock) -> Swan & Dolphin (shared dock) -> Disney Hollywood Studios
Disney Hollywood Studios-> Swan & Dolphin -> Yacht & Beach Club -> Boardwalk Inn -> EPCOT International Gateway

Walking is also an option to DHS and Epcot!

The walk to Epcot takes about 5-10 minutes depending on your pace.

The walk to DHS will take you a little longer but it is a beautiful walk! The distance from the Beach Club to Hollywood Studios is a little over a mile.
Here's a suggested shortcut if you get to the Boardwalk from the Beach Club side: when you are at the Boardwalk Inn, just before the Wyland Galleries store, is a little opening that leads out to their Luna Park pool area, which you can use as a short cut for getting to the Hollywood Studios walkway and there will be a sign saying which way to go. This way you don't need to walk past the whole Boardwalk area. Alternatively, you
can access the path by walking all the way to the end of the Yacht Club and crossing the bridge there.

Here's a map created by Robo that explains the walking paths from DHS to Epcot, and places in between, illustrated in colorful detail:



Thanks, Robo, for permitting me to post this extremely helpful picture!


Taxi Cabs are readily available to guests and can be hailed by one of the valet CMs outside of the Yacht or Beach Club lobby front entrances, however...

If you are traveling directly from the Y&BC to MK, the Disney bus will take you directly to the front entrance of the park, but if you drive, or take a taxi cab, you must park/get out at the TTC and either use the express monorail or ferry boat to get to the park



The Yacht & Beach Club boat dock was closed for refurbishment in March 2011 but is now open again.

Dee's tip for avoiding the worst leg of travel in the World!
Please note that the opinions expressed are those of Natebenma alone (but have been been expressed by everyone else I have ever talked to)

The return trip from Downtown Disney to the Yacht & Beach Club, or to any resort for that matter is notoriously torturous. It's bad! We have not found the buses TO DTD to be all that bad but we HATE the buses that return from DTD to BC, it takes forever since the buses often stop at a water park, or change drivers, or make dropoffs at all of the EPCOT resorts, or all of the above. And the DTD return buses are always crowded. Always.

This is what we do, and it has made our trips to DTD SO much more enjoyable. You need park hopper tickets for this, which IMHO is a great idea anyway when you are staying at BC/YC. It also requires that you return prior to the closing time for EP- either 9 PM or midnight on EMH nights.

When we are on our way back to the Beach Club, we take one of the resort boats (to POR, OKW or Saratoga Springs). We find the bus stop at the resort and hop on a bus to EPCOT, then we walk through the park, enjoying attractions along the way.

Both days we did this we planned our DTD on a morning we had been at EP, and as a double bonus, we pulled a FP to Soarin' before leaving the park in the morning, and then used it on our way back to the room.

Here are the two posts from my TR where we did this.

July 2010: http://www.disboards.com/showpost.ph...&postcount=238

July 2009: http://www.disboards.com/showpost.ph...0&postcount=49

A similar method works for us when we are traveling from another resort back to the BC- we take the monorail or bus to EP first.

Alternatively, a taxi back to the BC would probably be around $20. I would consider that, too!




Stormalong Bay Pool and Flying Jib Slide

Stormlong Bay is a beachside water park that offers up 3 acres of aquatic fun for the whole family. Catch currents in an expansive sand-bottomed pool or a lazy circular river, explore the "Shipwreck" and slide down one of the highest hotel waterslides at Walt Disney World Resort, or simply lie on the elevated tanning deck and soak up the sun's golden rays. With 750,000 gallons of water comprising an impressive complex of pools that range from swirling to placid every member of your family can find a place to make a splash at Stormalong Bay. Guppy Bay Kiddie pool lets even the youngest of Guests in on the fun.

Stormalong Bay Pool and the Flying Jib Slide


Stormalong Bay received the 2004 Disney Magazine Reader's Choice Award for Favorite Walt Disney World Resort Pool!!!


Check Posted Hours, Changes Seasonally

Refurbishment News:

The Flying Jib Slide and Kiddie Slide underwent scheduled maintenance from early January to February 4. Both slides are now open for the enjoyment of resort guests!

Some areas of Stormalong Bay may be closed during the winter months for scheduled maintenance, but there will always be a portion of the pool open for resort guests, weather permitting.

Please note:

ALL MEMBERS of your party must bring their room keys to Stormalong Bay for admittance!

DVC members who are staying at other resorts are not permitted to use the pool.


Child and adult life jackets are permitted in the pool and are available at no charge at the Poolside Giftshop at SAB. If SAB runs out of adult life jackets or doesn't have them for some reason, the marina can provide life jackets for use at SAB at no charge.

For everyone's safetey and enjoyment, diaper-age children are required to wear swim diapers or rubber pants when using any pool at WDW. Swim diapers available for purchase at Poolside Gifts.



Pool Side Gifts:
Tube rentals, complimentary life jackets and swim diapers are available at Poolside Gifts located under the gazebo.
The tubes are $3 for 1 hour or $10 per day.

According to a lifeguard, July 2010:
Outside floats are not permitted for adults in SAB. Pool noodles, either from home or purchased at the pool gift shop, may be used in SAB. Young children may use floats that surround their body if an adult is within arm's reach. These rules are subject to change and may be affected by crowd conditions.

THANK YOU so much to skelooch for providing this incredible labeled birds-eye view of Stormalong Bay!!!














Build a castle or dig in the sand in the shallow beach area. This pool section is zero-entry depth and perfect for little beachlovers. The kiddie pool is on the Yacht Club side.








Two photos above courtesy of pixarmom





Enjoy a swim in the unique sand-bottom pool section. Experience the sinking sands area, which is kind of like quick-sand. Your foot sinks into the sand when you put it down. An unusual, but fun sensation!








Float along under bridges and by a beautiful windmill in the lazy river.








Take a spin or two around the whirlpool!







Shipwreck Jib Slide









*Please take note that you must be able to swim in 4 ft of water without the use of a flotation device.
Also, adults are not allowed to wait at the exit of the larger pool slide.


There's even a place for little pirates to slide and splash!








Thanks hockeymomR for the kiddie slide photos!


Quiet Pools are available at the Beach Club and Yacht Club 24 hours/7 days per week and at the Beach Club Villas (Check Posted Hours).
No lifeguards on duty.

Hot tubs may also be found at SAB and at the quiet pools.

2 Bedroom Suites (Club Level, not on 5th floor)= can sleep 7+
Nantucket Vice Presidential Suite=can sleep 2+
Newport Presidential Suite=can sleep 7+

+ = one child under 3 in a crib

Rooms in all view categories; standard, garden and waterview- may have a variety of bedding layouts. This includes the regular (not deluxe) Concierge Level Rooms:

Very few rooms have a king bed or single queen bed. These may be requested on your reservation, but are not guaranteed.

The rest of the rooms have two queen beds.

Some rooms have daybeds. These rooms are guaranteed for families of five, with all members over age 3. If you have fewer than 5 people on your reservation, you may request a room with a daybed, but it is not guaranteed. You may also request a rollaway cot to your room when you arrive. This is provided free of charge and is subject to availability.


Detailed balcony information on Deluxe Concierge Rooms:

There are six deluxe Concierge rooms at BC.

1557 has a patio and lots of windows.
2557 and 4557 have extra large balconies.
3557 has the standing room only balcony.

3691 has both a standing room balcony and a full balcony
4681 has a standing room only balcony.

So 3 of the 6 have full balconies, 1 has a patio, and 2 have standing room only balconies.



There is a side entrance/exit to the Beach Club which takes you mere steps, probably 3 minutes, from the International Gateway Entrance. It is near room 1501.

This was really handy for us a couple of times this summer when it was wicked hot and when it had just started pouring.

You have to go through a lot of hallways to find it, so the best way to do this is to follow the signs to room 1501 from the lobby.

Here is a photo of the pathway near the "secret entrance"

Resort Benefits

As a Disney Vacation Club Member, you enjoy the comforts of home as well as the same benefits of staying at a Walt Disney World® Resort hotel:

Extra Magic Hours — Each day, one of the Walt Disney World® Theme Parks opens an hour early or stays open up to three hours after regular Park hours. This benefit allows you to enjoy a more relaxed pace knowing that you'll have extra time to visit the Theme Parks.

Disney's Magical Express Service — This exclusive complimentary shuttle and luggage delivery service takes you from Orlando International Airport directly to your Resort. At the end of your stay, you'll enjoy the same convenience from your Resort to Orlando International Airport.

Convenient Transportation — Buses arrive right at your Resort to get you to and from Walt Disney World® Theme Parks, Water Parks and more.

A Retreat Close to the Magic — When you stay at a Disney Vacation Club Resort, you're not only surrounded by magic 24 hours a day, you're also close enough to hop back to your Resort for a snack, nap or dip in the pool.

Incredible Disney Service — Disney Cast Members are on hand to make your vacations as easy and worry-free as possible, providing you with the signature Disney service you expect.

Frequently Asked Questions and Other Useful Information


What will the view from my room be?

Effective with reservations on January 1, 2011, the view categories at the Beach and Yacht Clubs were reclassified into 3 booking categories:

Standard view- parking lot or rooftops
Garden view- something green- trees or courtyard
Water view- lake or pool

Will I have a full balcony?

Almost all of the rooms at the Yacht Club have a full balcony. A few rooms have extra large balconies that may be shared with another room.
About 50% of the rooms at the Beach Club have full balconies with a table and two chairs. The remaining 50% have standing or "Juliet" balconies.

If you are staying at the Beach Club and a full balcony is important to you, you should have "Full balcony, please" as your first or only request.

When you check-in at the desk, ask about your balcony and if you are not happy with it, ask if there is a full balcony available. CMs will try their best to satisfy you. Don't do the advanced online check-in. This is for guests who will just pickup their key and go, no questions asked and is not designed for people who may request changes to their assigned room.

Will my room have a daybed?

Some rooms at the Beach and Yacht Club have daybeds. These rooms are guaranteed for families of five, if all members are over age 3. If you have fewer than 5 people on your reservation, you may request a room with a daybed, but it is not guaranteed. You may also request a rollaway cot to your room when you arrive. This is provided free of charge and is subject to availability.

There are two types of daybeds - one that fits a normal sized adult and the other that is best suited for a small teenager or a child. There is no way of knowing at the front desk which type of daybed is in what rooms. It's totally luck of the draw and the CM can't tell you which is in your room if you get a room with a daybed.

How do I make a request on my reservation? How many requests should I make? What should I request?

You should note any requests on your reservation through Disney's CRO (Central Reservation Office) or your travel agent can add it when your trip is booked, or anytime thereafter. Requests should be made no later than 2 weeks before you will arrive at the resort.

Please remember that requests are not guaranteed.

The fewer requests you have, the more likely there will be a room available that meets your most important preference(s).

When you arrive at the resort for checkin, you can ask before you take your keys if your requests were granted, and if not, see if there is anything available that meets your needs. Please note that you should do this through REGULAR checkin.
Online checkin is designed for grabbing your keys and going, no questions asked, so if there is a possibility you will ask for a room change, you shouldn't do this.

Requests vary because what is important to one family may be different for another family. Some popular requests are full balcony at the Beach Club, a day bed, close to lobby (or elevator or Stormalong Bay), close to Concierge Lounge (if you are staying club level) or close to EPCOT.

Should I checkin online in advance or wait until I am at the resort?

As noted in the responses above, if you don't have any questions and if you are going to just grab your keys and go, then you are great candidate for the online checkin. If there is a possibility that you will ask for a room change because you are not satisfied with the one that has been assigned to you, then you should wait until you arrive at the resort to check in.

Where can I purchase and refill a refillable mug?

Refillable Mugs may be purchased and filled at the Beach Club Marketplace, Beaches and Cream, Hurricane Hanna's (self-serve station) and the Ale and Compass Lounge in the Yacht Club resort.


How do I enter EPCOT at rope drop/park opening?

Guests who enter EPCOT through the International Gateway prior to the park opening time should proceed on the walkway outside of UK and Canada. Cast members are stationed along the way (bridge to France being #1) to guide you through UK and Canada. After you pass the last little cart coming out of Canada you are directed onto the small pathway that leads toward the Fountain of Nations. There you will experience a real rope with CMs and characters milling around. Across from you, maybe forty yards away, are the guests that arrived from the front entrance.

After the countdown, the rope is removed and CMs will escort you to Soarin’ in an orderly fashion. Usually, you will arrive at Soarin' either at the same time or just a moment or so after those who enter through the main gates.

If you have a pre-opening breakfast scheduled at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall, you will provide your name and/or reservation to a CM at the International Gateway. You proceed through UK and Canada as described above, then continue past Mexico to Norway.


Can I ship a package to Beach Club or Yacht Club for my stay?

If you ship a package to the resort, Mail by United States Postal Service, not anything else!!! If you mail other than USPS, your items will be shipped to the convention center and the shipping department will charge the recipient a handling charge.

Disney's Beach Club Resort (or Disney's Beach Club Villas)
1800 Epcot Resort Boulevard
Lake Buena Vista, Florida 32830
Please give to Guest, (name on reservation)
Check-in date 9/1/10 (for example)

or

Disney's Yacht Club Resort
1700 Epcot Resort Boulevard
Lake Buena Vista, Florida 32830
Please give to Guest, (name on reservation)
Check-in date 9/1/10 (for example)

Orders from Garden Grocer are delivered to Bell Services at YC or BC, so they are not subject to the delivery fee. You can ask Bell Services to deliver the order to your room when you are there.

Where can I rent a scooter, wheelchair or other mobility items during my stay?

www.KM-Rentals.com and Mobility Equipment Rentals both deliver to the resorts and both run about $125 weekly. KM-Rentals offers free delivery and pick-up ... not sure about Mobility Equipment Rentals. Wheelchairs may also be provided free of charge to resort guests, subject to availability upon check-in.

A piece of advice about charging your scooter: Charge your scooter in your room. There are limited outlets outside the room, and if you leave the scooter to charge overnight, someone else may come along, unplug your scooter to use the outlet. The next morning, you will discover your scooter has not been charged.


What is a Bounce Back Offer?
Bounce Back is a promotion offered at selected times throughout the year offering a discount on a future trip if you book WHILE YOU ARE STILL AT THE RESORT. It is usually left on a card in your room, but if you don't see a card, you can dial #8844 from any resort phone to see if a bounceback promotion is being offered and what the eligibility requirements are.

You MUST book it before you check-out. Once you get home, you can change the dates or cancel it. However, once you check-out, even if you give them your reservation number and say you were just there, they won't allow you to book it.

What is that awesome smell at the Beach Club? Where can I purchase the bath products used at the Yacht Club?
I've never slept better in my life- can I buy the mattress?


Yes!!!

Want to feel like you are living at the Yacht or Beach Club all year long??? You can purchase the body products provided for use during your stay, you can buy the same type of mattress that encourages restful vacation sleep and you can even purchase the scent system used in the lobbies so that your house can smell like your "Home away from home":

Check out the Disney Resort Collection for bedding and bath products (h2oProducts, Aquatics line)
www.disneyresortcollection.com

The scent generator may be purchased at www.scentairhome.com
The scent used is green clover and aloe


Who can I contact if I have concerns about something during my vacation, I have a great suggestion or better still, to compliment something wonderful about my trip or to recognize a CM who helped make my stay magical?

Comments, Compliments or Complaints:

You can go to City Hall or Guest Relations during your stay

or email wdw.guest.communications@disneyworld.com

or send a letter to:
Walt Disney World Guest Communications
Executive Offices
Post Office Box 10040
Lake Buena Vista, Florida 32830-0040

When you write or email, please include your name, address, phone number and email address.

Another excellent way to be heard is through exit surveys in your resort lobby. These surveys can only be done on the day you check-out. They start at 7 AM and are done right in the lobby ... the survey cast members usually hang out with their laptops across from the concierge desk or outside near the airport check-in. They have to get a certain number of surveys done every day and once those are completed they leave. Sometimes they are gone by 8 AM. So if you want to do one, be downstairs before 8 AM.

The surveys are reviewed at the actual resort as well as WDW with a fine tooth comb!!! It's the perfect way to get your comments (good or bad) about the resort and/or cast members and/or experiences during your vacation.

If you were given incorrect information from the Central Reservations Booking Office, or if you miss resort-specific merchandise in the gift shops or if you want to recognize a CM who went out of their way to make your trip magical, this is a very effective way for the powers to be to see your message!

* Designates prediction made after due date was revealed- even if they didn't see the date before making the guess

As most of you know, our dear friend Teena will be welcoming her first grandchild sometime this summer. Her daughter Jeanne refers to her little one as “Peanut” and so far has resisted the temptation to learn her baby’s gender.

I thought it would be fun to have a “Is Peanut a Princess or a Pirate” pool on the boards. Although I would love to collect $2 per guess- with half of the money to the winner half of the money to Jeanne, there are probably rules on the this board prohibiting solicitation, so this will just have to be for bragging rights. But I bet we could still make this interesting!

For the record, Teena thinks this is a neat idea, but Jeanne can’t believe “strangers” are interested in her or her baby!

I will post the predictions on Page 1 of the Beach and Yacht Club FAQ forum.

Here are the rules:

Your prediction should include Princess or Pirate, and the date you think Peanut will arrive

For added pizzaz- highlight your guess in pink or blue!

Don't quote this post, please

One guess per person

In the event of duplicate guesses, first to be submitted will be used

Eligible dates will be June 18 to August 13. Jeanne’s due date has not been shared on the boards, but there are hints and clues about timing for those who are willing to dig.

Teena, Jeanne and all members of their immediate family are not eligible to participate in this contest.

My guess will be the first official entry- see next post: I am going with Princess, born on July 5 (my older son’s BD)

Let the games begin!

Dee

Clarification- We can have 2 guess for each date- a princess/ a pirate
