The Beach Club Resort is one of my most favorite places to stay in WDW. I’ve shared so many great memories there and I can’t wait for more to come! What’s your favorite Disney World Resort???

July 1, 2002: Disney’s Beach Club Villas open at Walt Disney World.
Also located on Crescent Lake, these luxury villas have their own quiet pool area (although of course you can still use the amazing main pool shared by the Yacht and Beach Club Resorts), and have access to the boat transportation shared by the resorts on the lake.
The villas are Disney Vacation Club properties and were essentially an add-on to the Yacht and Beach Club complex. If you want to spend the night in the lap of luxury, this is definitely the place to do it! The resort is so close to Epcot, that it’s within walking distance. It’s definitely fun to take advantage of getting to watch the fireworks at nightly, and you can get into the park via the International Gateway after a 10 minute or less walk! That walk may be longer than it appears if you’ve decided to have drinks around the World beforehand!
November 5, 1990: The Yacht Club Resort, sister of the Beach Club, opens on the shores of Crescent Lake.
Slightly larger than the Beach Club, this deluxe Epcot area resort resembles 1800s era New England seaboard architecture. The two resorts also share an amazing pool, Stormalong Bay, which features an amazing water slide, a lazy river, a whirlpool, and white sandy bottomed pools.
Have we talked about this thing called “The Kitchen Sink”, from Disney World’s Beaches & Cream, Beach Club Resort? It’s hugely decadent dessert, and comes in a giant bowl–shaped like a kitchen sink. It’s obviously meant to be shared because it contains every flavor of ice cream in shop as well as quite literally EVERY TOPPING THEY HAVE. Not kidding.
Here’s the recipe, if you’re looking to curb your sweet tooth, or–if you’re aiming to tackle it yourself–want to go into a diabetic coma:
