The Beach Club was a fantastic location which allowed us to frequent the Food and Wine Festival often (even better than we thought!), and allowed easy access to the Skyliner and ferry to DHS. The pool was incredible.

We’ve mapped and taken photographs of the views from every single room on Walt Disney World property! Our Room Finder helps you find the perfect room for you and then request that room from Disney.

Dining

The Cape May Cafe is a decent option for breakfast. You'll find much more variety a short walk away at either EPCOT or the other four EPCOT resorts.

Beaches & Cream Soda Shop Beaches & Cream exists mainly to give guests an excuse to eat all the things they’re not supposed to. But hey, it’s vacation—indulge! Seating is scarce during peak hours.

Cape May Cafe Entrées include a seafood boil with shrimp, clams, and mahi mahi, and there’s a “turf platter” with steak and chicken, but none of it is memorable. Better dining options include Ale & Compass at Yacht Club and Trattoria al Forno at BoardWalk Inn.

The Solarium - Afternoon Tea

Beach Club Marketplace Sharing space with the gift shop at the Beach Club, the Marketplace is not the most inviting quick service. The good news is that the food is decent and there is seating available elsewhere nearby that is much more pleasant.

Beaches & Cream To Go The take-out area of the popular Beaches & Cream.

Hurricane Hanna's Waterside Bar and Grill The pool complex at the Yacht and Beach Club Resorts, Stormalong Bay, is widely cited as the best pool at Walt Disney World. Thankfully Stormalong Bay’s pool bar is at a level appropriate of the pool. Hurricane Hanna’s is a New England beach-style structure that fits in with both the Beach and Yacht Club themes. One of the best things about this bar is the wide range of seating options available. There are several chairs under cover at the bar, a handful of umbrella topped tables nearby, many lounge chairs near the pool and above the bar on a large platform, and equally as many chairs across the promenade on the beach. You can get just about any view you want while sipping your drink here.

Martha's Vineyard Lounge

Yacht & Beach Club Private Dining

Refillable Mugs Allows guest self-service soft drink refills from quick-service locations in hotels (NOT in theme parks) for $21.99 for the length of stay.

Amenities

SWIPE TO EXPLORE

4 Pools

Beach Club has Disney World's best pool - Stormalong Bay with a lazy river, fabulous water slide, and acres of water fun. Three other pools are available across Beach Club and Yacht Club resorts, for use by both Beach and Yacht Club guests.

Arcade

Lafferty Place Arcade arcade is near Stormalong Bay between the Yacht and Beach resorts. It features relatively recent video games of all kinds.

Outdoor Movies

Free Disney Movies Under the Stars are shown most evenings, weather-permitting, either at the Beach Club Beach, or in the Solarium.

Fitness

The Ship Shape Fitness Center has weights, treadmills, and other equipment for your workout. Hours are typically 6 AM to 9 PM. Joggers will enjoy the 0.8-mile loop around Crescent Lake too.

Campfire Activities

The Beach Club Beach hosts marshmallow roasts around 5:30 PM nightly. It's really great during the cooler months of the year.

Early Theme Park Entry

Disney resort guests get into each theme park 30 minutes earlier than off-site guests, every day.

Buy Individual Lightning Lane Early

Those staying at Disney's Deluxe and Deluxe Villa hotels can buy Lightning Lane via Individual Purchase at 7:00 a.m. each day. Others cannot make that purchase until the official park opening time.

Extended Evening Theme Park Hours

Disney's Deluxe and DVC resort guests get two extra hours in select theme parks on certain days of the week. The schedule changes, so check with the front desk.
