    Hi! We are coming in NINE days, I can't wait! I have a couple of questions about the Beach Club Villas -- are pool towels provided? Are there pails/shovels/balls available for kids to play with at the pools/beach? Can you reserve sun umbrella's? Thx!

    Hi Wendy!

    Thank you for sending in your question to the Walt Disney World Moms Panel.

    Stormalong Bay, the pool shared by the Beach Club and the Yacht Club is absolutely amazing.  Both of my boys, ages 12 and 7, can easily spend a half day or more at Stormalong Bay.  They both love it!  Guests sometimes leave pails and shovels for other guests to enjoy; we have done that many times ourselves rather than bringing them back home.  However, that said, I do suggest you bring your own.  You can always just bring shovels and then buy souvenir popcorn buckets in the parks and use those buckets to pay in the sand with.  I have done that a couple of times myself.

    Unfortunately you can't reserve an umbrella, but except for summer afternoons, it's pretty easy to find some shade at Stormalong Bay. 

    I hope this helps!  Please write back with more questions!
