    I'm thinking of visiting WDW again in June with my 12yo for a special Mom-daughter vacation. Is it worth spending the extra $$ on Beach Club as opposed to a moderate resort just for the two of us? She loves the water and Stormalong Bay sounds awesome.

    Hi Janet,

    All of the deluxe resorts at Disney are fabulous but Disney's Beach Club Resort is my favorite! Is it worth the extra money - absolutely!  It will be a great place for a Mom-Daughter vacation.

    Stormalong Bay is considered by many as the best pool on Disney property. This HUGE pool complex features three acres of sand-bottomed pools including one of the tallest hotel waterslides, whirlpools and a lazy river. An elevated tanning deck is perfect for those who just want to relax and soak up the sun. Even the youngest guests will enjoy Stormalong Bay which features a sand bar in the middle of one of the pools where they can build sand castles and splash in the shallow water. Special poolside activities take place each day at Stormalong Bay. This pool is for exclusive use of guests staying at the Yacht or Beach Club and they do check resort IDs to gain entrance.

    Looking for a quiet place to relax by the pool? No worries. Tucked among each resort as well as Disney’s Beach Club Villas, there are three additional pools and Jacuzzis which are ideal for relaxing.

    You'll also find watercraft rentals for fun in the sun on Crescent Lake and movies under the stars.

    There are awesome dining options at Beach Club including Cape May Cafe which features a character breakfast buffet and Beaches & Cream Soda Shop home of the world famous Kitchen Sink dessert.

    If the two of you feel like a little pampering, you can visit Periwig Beauty & Barber Shop. Teens will love Lafferty Place Arcade. You’ll also find tennis courts and a sand volleyball court.

    Beach Club is very convenient to Epcot & Disney's Hollywood Studios. You can walk or take a Friendship Boat to either of them.

    Please feel free to visit us as often as you'd like during your planning. Its a pleasure to assist you.

    Wishing you minnie magical memories :-) Allison
