This Day in Disney History

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!
