    BLT reservations July 2016-going to try to modify to Beach club this week. IF we get it-it will be our 1st time there. With such a wonderful pool-I was thinking of cutting back on park days-just use the pools. (NO water parks this trip) Any thoughts?

    Hello Denise!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I know I have helped you with several questions for your special girls only trip this year, and I hope you had a magical vacation. 

    Disney’s Beach Club Villas are a wonderful choice for a summer vacation. The pool, Stormalong Bay, has a reputation for being the absolute best at Walt Disney World. I certainly think with a pool like that right at your resort, that there would be plenty of wet and wild fun to enjoy without a trip to a water park. Stormalong Bay is not just a pool, but a huge, 3 acre water recreation area! You’ll find a sandy bottom, a shipwreck themed waterslide, and even a lazy river. There is something for every member of the family to enjoy. Swimming can take a lot of energy, so when you need to refuel, look no farther than Beaches & Cream Soda Shop. Try their delicious grilled cheese sandwich, and bring the whole family to enjoy the largest sundae I have ever seen, the Kitchen Sink!

    The other great aspect of Disney’s Beach Club Villas is the amazing location. If you’d like to take a break from the bustle of the theme parks, you’ll have plenty of activities within walking distance of your resort. After enjoying a splashtastic good time at Stormalong Bay, you can challenge your family to a round at Fantasia Gardens and Fairways Miniature Golf, located across the street from the Walt Disney World Swan. For a delightful park free evening, enjoy a beautiful stroll along the Boardwalk. With street performers appearing nightly, fun snacks and exciting shops, it’s the perfect end to a Disney day. 

    I hope I’ve given you some fun ideas for your summer vacation, Denise! Please come back to visit us here on the panel, and thank you so much for sending me your question. It has been my pleasure to help you with your vacation planning this year.

    Wishing you Membership Magic!
