After months of construction work, the refurbishment is now complete for the Disney’s Beach Club Resort lobby, and it has fully reopened — The Solarium remains closed. Initially, work was set to be completed in April 2023, though it was extended into fall. This summer, new soft goods were added, including carpeting.

Beach Club Resort Lobby

The single long check-in counter previously in this spot has been split into three counters. We’ve seen the same thing done at several Walt Disney World Resort hotels.

The counters are white, with light blue panels on the front and decorative seashells in the center. There is also now a dip in the center, making the counter more accessible to wheelchair users.

The wallpaper behind the counter is a light pink with a damask pattern of seashells and other beach-like elements. New artwork depicts a beach at sunset.

Beach Club Solarium

The Solarium is a relaxation space with windows, a TV, couches, and chairs. During outdoor construction, the walkway from the lobby to the villas was re-routed through The Solarium, but this work is now complete.
