PHOTOS: Tour a Deluxe Studio Villa Room at the Newly-Reopened Disney’s Beach Club Villas
Some of our reporters have been staying at Walt Disney World hotels while we check out new social distancing measures around the resort. So far, we’ve already looked at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge – Jambo House, and now we’re staying at Disney’s Beach Club Resort, in one of the Deluxe Studio Villas that make up the Beach Club Villas, or the Disney Vacation Club portion of the resort. Let’s tap our MagicBands and head on inside.
Many Disney resort hotels have taken on a minimalist feel, particularly with the all-white bedding and a lack of a bed runner. Beach Club Resort’s rooms don’t feature much theming at all but may appeal to guests looking for a more muted hotel room.
As a Deluxe Studio, the room features one queen bed, plus a sofa that features another pull-out queen bed. Beneath the TV and media center, the center table pulls down into a smaller Murphy bed. On the table is the newly-redone hotel guide that we examined in another post, featuring guests wearing face masks per the new park protocols. Speaking of protocols, besides the lack of additional bedding, the only major change we saw in terms of cleanliness was the TV remote, which was sealed in a clear plastic bag.
As with all DVC Studios, it’s a rather spacious room.
The bathroom is somewhat standard with a shower/tub combo, and plenty of fresh towels. Inside the shower ledge were some H2O individually-packaged toiletries, somewhat of a rarity now with the advent of wall-mounted dispensers.
The vanity is sandwiched between the bathroom and the closet, complete with an illuminated magnifying mirror, a sink, and a small ledge for any toiletries beneath the mirror. Your basic toiletries are included here, as well.
A small kitchenette is featured at all DVC studios, complete with a mini-fridge, a kitchen sink, coffee maker, microwave, and ice bucket. Mugs, plates, and cutlery are included, and you also get a set of disposable coffee cups, coffee packets, and dish soap.
With a corner room, our balcony didn’t have the most amazing view, but you can still look out at the lush grounds of Disney’s Beach Club Resort.
Stormalong Bay, the feature pool at Beach Club, is closed for now, but guests staying at Beach Club have access to BoardWalk’s Luna Park Pool instead.
If you’ll be staying at a Walt Disney World hotel, know that some hotel guests have received scam calls directly to their hotel rooms. Be safe with both your credit card information and your health!
