I recently returned from my Disney vacation where I decided to stay club level at the Beach Club, and I must say, from the beginning to the very end I loved it. The location of the Beach Club is awesome, it's a 3 minute walk to Epcot, or you can take a boat to Epcot, Hollywood Studios, Disney Spring or to the Boardwalk. I loved being able to walk into the back of Epcot and avoiding bus crowds.
The MAGIC started when we got off Disney's Magical Express, we were met by a cast member asking us if we were the Echler Family, welcomed us and took us up to the 5th floor where they brought me champagne and my daughter a sparkling juice. My daughter whispered to me, "Mom, they think we are famous" and that is how you feel when you are there, famous. Your concierge team does so much for you while you are there, make sure you utilize them, that is what they are there for.
I was so happy when we were taken to our newly renovated room. The decor was beautiful, very light and airy. The bathroom is quite large and of course we had the uograded H20 spa products. There is also a small fridge and coffee maker in the room. We had a Lagoon/Pool view room and it was amazing.
From this view we could watch the Star Wars Fireworks at Hollywood Studios from our private balcony.
People always ask me, why pay more for club level, what is so special about it? There are many perks to staying club level, attention to detail, the concierge helping you with any problems that may come, helping with fast passes if you want to change any reservations, they help with dining as well. They are there to help you with anything you need, very attentive and friendly. Each night guests return to their room to find their bedding turned down, and chocolates on their pillows. Only guests that stay club level have access to the this floor.
One of the best things about club level is the concierge lounge. Each day that have a continental breakfast spread, afternoon snacks, evening hors d'oeuvres, wine and beer and nightly evening cordials and desserts. You could ask for beer and wine whenever you wanted it, but it only out in the lounge from 5 to 7pm.
Breakfast consisted of hot grits, oatmeal, meat and cheese, boiled eggs, pastries, muffins, fresh fruit and a large assortment of coffee and tea. Many people ate in the lounge, some would go down and load up their plates and go to their rooms to eat.
The lounge is very large, plenty of seating. They even have a small table with a tv at the little one's level.
In the evenings they brought out the beer and wine along with the yummy hors d'oeuvres, hot and cold.
At night they served cordials and desserts, my friend's adorable daughter lovingly called it the "Chocolate Bar" I have to say, it was one of our favorites!! So many yummy sweets to choose from!!
The Beach Club is also known for their pool It is a 3 acre "waterpark" that is shared with the Yacht Club. It is known as Stormalong Bay and it is the largest pool on Disney property. It has a sand bottom!! It also includes a lazy river, hot tubs and an awesome pirate ship slide. It's a very large pool area with beautiful bridges and a huge windmill. There is also a place to get food, drinks, including alcoholic drinks, and snacks poolside.
I will be going back to the Beach Club again and again. If you have not tried concierge level, you really should!! For a week we were catered to and spoiled, it could be very easy to get use to that lifestyle, but unfortunately the Magical Express, which I call the Depression Express came to pick us up and take us back to reality. I have decided I don't like living in a world where magic bands don't work. Can I get a fast pass back to the Beach Club please??
If you would like to book a stay at Disney's Beach Club, or any Disney Resort, email me, I would love to help you plan a magical trip for you and your family.
