We are on day three of 14 nights staying at Beach Club and absolutely loving this resort! So happy! Staff have all been lovely, my one request was for a full balcony which was met. Not much of a view, but at least it’s private! We ate at Ale and Compass last night and my bf said it was one of the best meals he’s had onsite ever - definitely an improvement from Captains Grill!
It’s room 2534 - less than a two minute walk from main lobby and pretty much right above the secret door to Epcot. The last three years we have stayed in studios so I was worried this would feel small but I can’t notice any difference to be honest. Few photos in case Dee would like them for anywhere :-)
Sounds like an incredible room, even if the view is a bit lacking.

Thanks so much for providing the info and pictures!

Enjoy the rest of your stay.

We returned last week from an amazing two week stay at Beach Club (7th to 21st September).

We were in room 4586. Great location, close to Epcot (we could sit on the balcony and listen to the band in the UK pavilion and had great views of Illuminations above the trees.) View itself was entirely woodland. Full balcony, two queen beds, no daybed. We had the usual toiletries with the exception of lotion. Housekeeping in our section came around mid morning - super convenient as we were using EEMH almost every day and came back late afternoon for a rest.

WIFI was TERRIBLE throughout our stay. Coming from the UK, we typically rely on WIFI and this is the first time we've been let down. Connection in our room would be down for hours, sometimes days at a time.

We spent 3-4 mornings at the pool, low crowds, lots of time spent in the lazy river and sipping Pina Colavas from Hurricane Hannah's. We never did figure out the secret to waiter service this time around, saw lots of servers around different areas but no one in the different areas where we were sitting. I really do feel the pool is the superstar on this resort and we had a great time relaxing here. We even had some of the characters join us at the poolside one day!

QS options were really limited but we knew that going in. DH in particular wasn't happy with the lack of choices compared to POR last year and we did talk a lot about whether the pool/proximity to Epcot would outweigh food options for us on our next stay.

Overall a fantastic trip in a beautiful resort that really felt like home for two weeks.

We are in the Beach Club Villas room 525. The view is great. We can see the Eiffel Tower from our room inside and if we go out on the balcony and turn right we can see the Boardwalk sign and maybe the Tower or Terror. The only downside to the room is it is right next to the elevator so we can hear the mechanics of the elevator. It isn’t bad just sounds like a faint noise. It is nice though to be that close when you are exhausted.

Thanks so much for the pictures and description of your room. I'll add this to the BCV Room View thread.

Good morning!
We got here yesterday and got a huge heaping of pixie dust upgrading us from a regular room to club level! We’ve never stayed club level before. Here’s my biggest question- what is the protocol for tipping the lounge staff? They’ve been amazing and I just want to make sure we recognize them appropriately. Thank you!
That's fantastic! Enjoy!

I'll add my comments. It is not necessary to tip, but when I have known in advance that I was going to be staying club level, I have brought along local treats from the New England area for the staff to share- for example, maple sugar candy.

The best thing you can do is recognize any cast members who were especially helpful during your stay with a cast compliment (tweet while you are there, email/letter to guest services and BC/YC CM if you have returned from your trip)

::yes::

Sadly I can be removed from the list of coming Dec 8th to 11th. We had to switch over to the Coronado Towers. It was a savings that paid for the DAH and Christmas party and still $300 left over after paying for both of those. It was just too hard to pass on. I hope to one day stay at YC. At least last trip I did get one night at BC and it was excellent.
Thanks for letting us know. I'll make the change.

Enjoy your trip!

:cool2:

We will be staying at the YC Club Level in 2 weeks. Can anyone comment on the recent daily food menu offered at the Lounge please. Thanks !!
:welcome:

I'll add you to the Be Our Guest list we keep on Page 1, Post 15.

See the pictures of the menus posted by GADisneyDad14. I haven't done a great job of keeping up on the CL post on this thread (Page 1, Post 12), so I will recommend that you check out the Disney Club Level specific forum on the Resorts subform (run by Tigrluvspooh)

:cool1:


I was there for a few nights around the end of August. Here were the daily menus posted outside the lounge each morning. Sorry it’s only 3 days!

*snip* Will add menu photos to Page 1, Post 12

How is early November for pool weather? I’m determined to get some SAB time in at all costs. Last year we went in late October and had a nice pool day at the Poly but is Veterans Day more iffy with the temps?

I just returned from a three night stay. Mother/daughter trip and we just went to Epcot to enjoy Food and Wine. We were in room 3699. Two queen beds, no couch/pull out, and full balcony. I did not make any room requests for this stay, but if we stay here in the future I'll request something close to the lobby. From the room you could see the Swan/Dolphin and it overlooked the main pool. But you couldn't really see the pool, mostly you could just see roof. We didn't use the balcony at all - lovebugs EVERYWHERE! The room was pretty far from the lobby and was right next to a service room/elevator. The common wall was the wall with the TV and mirror and thankfully not the beds. Often when we were taking an afternoon break the whole wall with the TV would shake because staff was busy moving cleaning carts, etc. Not constant or loud, just startled us at first! We had a Keurig coffee maker which was nice. The coffee wasn't amazing, but 100% better than those old coffee makers. We had "full sized" bath products (shampoo, conditioner, body wash, bar of soap, mouth wash, and lotion). Our room was serviced midday and we had turn down service each night (beds turned down, TV on to the resort channel, and chocolates). I don't remember having turn down service last year when we stayed at the BC. Two things I just don't like about BC are - lack of QS space and the lobby smell (to me it smells like burnt cookies). On our check out day we spent some time in the solarium which was nice and quiet (and cool) compared to the busy main lobby. We didn't get refillable mugs, but I noticed a lot of the Halloween mugs. Anther observation was character voices in the elevators announcing the floor level. Cracked us up! Overall we had a lovely time at BC.
Thanks for the review. What do you mean by “full-sized toiletries”? We had the ones we could take when we were there in August.
The elevator voices cracked us up too. My daughter said Minnie sounded depressed. 😂 Goofy was a bit too enthusiastic early in the morning.

    It looks like you booked a Standard view, so considering that, your room location was not bad.

    Are you a frequent Disney guest or do you have a Disney Company connection? With your turn down service and chocolates, it appears that you may have been tagged as a VIP. Normally, they only are automatically provided to suites or Club Level rooms.

    Anyone there now that could tell me if they have Beach Club magnets in the gift shop? (Not Yacht Club). They’ve been sold out for months now...

    Is anyone awake and hearing the fireworks over at Epcot right now (midnight on Sunday)? It is so loud!!! Not sure what they could be for since the park closed at 9 pm!

    Testing for Epcot Forever

    Thanks for that! I thought I was going crazy... It did occur to me that they could be doing testing but then I thought that midnight is awfully late to be shooting off loud fireworks!

    Hi all, does anyone have any experience of how the Skyliner opening has affected the World Showcase entrance to Epcot? Do people coming from the Skyliner now share the small entrance that Crescent Lake guests use? If so, how are the crowds?

    It’s been going on the whole two weeks we have been here. It’s really getting to me as it wakes me every time.

    No complaints here! It was just a long walk. I never though of myself as a "frequent" guest (no company connections) but then I add up our trips and I guess I am! Our annual family trips are to Disney (#6 is this April) and this was our second mother/daughter trip. Third mother/daughter is in the works. It's just so convenient, fun, and magical. :)

    I should have said "travel size". They were in the smallish bottles, not the large bottles attached to the bathroom wall.

    Hi! We’ve been over Veteran’s Day weekend 6 or 7 times and have swam every single time! I’m sure some days were cooler than others but we’ve never thought it too cold to lounge around at Stormalong Bay!
