Disney’s Beach Club is a fantastic resort in an unbeatable location (hello Epcot!!) with two parks within walking or boating distance, as well as the Boardwalk entertainment area just across Crescent Lake. It’s perfect for families who want to take a break during the day due to its proximity to half of the major parks and its awesome pools!

Beach Club Lounge
With so many dining options surrounding the Epcot resort area and the World Showcase just next door, it’s easy to overlook the options at the Beach Club, but take a meal or two to experience what the resort has to offer.
Cape May Cafe
Just off the lobby, the Beach Club’s table service buffet hosts a beach party with Goofy and friends for breakfast and a New England clam bake buffet for dinner.
Beaches and Cream
This teeny table service alongside Stormalong Bay is an oft overlooked gem. Sure, you could just stop in to refill your mug or grab an ice cream cone, but try to find a moment to sit for a meal (amazing burgers!) or take the plunge and get the Kitchen Sink ice cream sundae! Now that Beaches takes reservations, it’s cut down on the once crazy wait times, so grab a time while they’re available and get ready to dive in!
Beach Club Marketplace
Situated in the rear of the gift shop, the Marketplace offers grab and go goods, a small grocery area and hot sandwiches, flatbreads, soup and more. Even when not staying in the Epcot resort area, we love to stop in for a flatbread or cup of chowder to enjoy in the Solarium.
Hurricane Hanna’s Grill
Hanna’s poolside offers burgers and other quick service fare for guests hanging out at Stormalong Bay or just passing by. It also serves as a mug refill spot. Kids’ meals come in a bucket perfect for building castles on the sand bar!
Hidden at the very end of the Beach Club’s interior hallway (just before heading out to Stormalong Bay), Martha’s boasts a full bar and serves up appetizers to those needing a quiet place to wind down after a day at the pool or the park.
Room service is available 24 hours.
The Beach Club, along with its sister resort, the Yacht Club, feature arguably the best pool area on property! Stormalong Bay features water slides, sand bottom, a whirlpool, lazy river, sand bar and more! Complimentary life jackets are also available.
The Ship Shape Health Club features fitness equipment and salon and spa services.
The Sandcastle Club is a convenient option for parents who want a night out, perhaps across Crescent Lake at the Boardwalk, and who have (potty-trained and anti-pull-up) children 3-12 years old. Dinner is served between 6:00 and 8:00 P.M., and you gotta get the kidlets by midnight, or they turn into pumpkins.
Or maybe you’ll decide to end the day all together with some campfire fun and a Movie Under the Stars.
