Disney’s Beach Club Resort is a beach-themed deluxe AAA Four-Diamond Award–winning resort at the Walt Disney World Resort. It opened on November 19, 1990. The resort is owned and operated by Walt Disney Parks and Resorts.

Disney’s Beach Club Resort is located in the Epcot Resort Area, next to a sister resort, Disney’s Yacht Club Resort, and across Crescent Lake from Disney’s BoardWalk Resort. Disney’s Yacht Club Resort and Disney’s Beach Club Resort and Villas share amenities and resources, including staff and management. Disney’s Beach Club Resort is home to a 73,000 square feet (6,800 m 2) convention center which is shared with Disney’s Yacht Club Resort. The villas on site are part of the Disney Vacation Club, sitting on 6 acres (2.4 ha) of land and consisting of 282 units. This hotel was designed by Robert A.M. Ster and is themed after seaside cottages found in Newport at the start of the 20th century, with the guest rooms following suit. The resort’s light blue motif distinguishes itself from the gray siding with red and white striped awnings of Disney’s Yacht Club Resort.

There are both standard rooms (two queen-size beds or one king-size bed) and suites. Some rooms also have a day bed in addition to 2 Queen beds or 1 King bed. The resort also offers a fifth floor Concierge Level with private floor access, a concierge lounge, turn-down service, and other amenities. The Concierge Level is home to the resort’s Presidential Suite. All rooms were renovated in 2009. Rooms were also renovated from 2015-2016. Rooms still have a beach theme, but are more modern with shades of gray, brown, and light blue. The hallways also were re-painted and re-papered, along with new carpets and new colors on the doors of the rooms.

In addition, vacation homes at Disney’s Beach Club Villas are broken down into three different sized accommodations, ranging from studios that sleep 4, one-bedroom villas that sleep 4, and two-bedroom villas that sleep 8.
