During our May 2012 Walt Disney World trip, we stayed at the Beach Club Villas on Disney Vacation Club points for the first time. This was actually the last resort to check off our “list” of Disney Vacation Club Resorts at Walt Disney World, and it turned out to be my favorite. Unsurprisingly, this was thanks to the excellent Stormalong Bay pool, which we enjoyed for the first time. Rather than going to the parks, we spent an entire morning enjoying the pool, followed by lunch at Beaches & Cream, one of our favorite Walt Disney World restaurants. After that, we walked to Epcot for a few hours in the park, then walked back to the Beach Club Villas to get ready for our first dinner at Yachtsman Steakhouse, which, thanks to its Porterhouse, is a new favorite of mine at Walt Disney World. All of this (location, pool, dining) plus a beautiful theme and design aesthetic, easily gives Beach Club Villas the #1 spot on my list of Disney Vacation Club resorts. For those curious, here’s my full list of rankings:
- Beach Club Villas
- Villas at Wilderness Lodge
- BoardWalk Villas
- Animal Kingdom Lodge Villas
- Bay Lake Tower
- Old Key West Resort
- Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa
It’s tough to rank them because, really, we’ve enjoyed every single one of these resorts (and Sarah’s list differs substantially from mine–Bay Lake Tower is her #1!). If anyone would be interested in an article elaborating on these rankings, leave a comment! We’ve already done an article on whether Disney Vacation Club is or might be right for you, which you might want to read if you’re considering buying into Disney Vacation Club!
