    Disney's Beach Club and Yacht Club FAQs thread

    The Beach Club
    [​IMG]

    A sandy white beach along a shimmering 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.


    The Yacht Club
    [​IMG]

    Classic surroundings capture the essence of a New England yacht club at this upscale resort. Its comfy chairs, hardwood floors and shafts of sunlight streaming into a welcoming lobby invite you to linger. Here you’ll enjoy luxurious accommodations as well as delightful amenities shared with Disney’s Beach Club Resort — a sandbottom pool, health club, and full service marina. There’s even a beachfront promenade with direct access to Epcot as well as the unique shops and restaurants at Disney’s BoardWalk Resort.

    Thanks for the new thread! :) It's so nice to pull up a FAQ thread and have it "current" :thumbsup2 I love that you included room floor plans, too. These threads just get better and better!


    The BC is such a relaxing family place. We really enjoyed our stay here. It's nice to be walking distance to two parks!
