    Hi there! Do all Deluxe Studios at Disney's Beach Club Villas now feature the Donald Duck-themed pull-down Murphy bed instead of the pull-out couch? Thank you!

    Hi there, Christina-and welcome to the Disney Vacation Club corner of planDisney! I'm excited to help with your question today. 

    When discussing my favorite Disney Vacation Club resorts, Disney's Beach Club Villas is always near the top of my list--it gives me all of the best nostalgic vibes from growing up near the Jersey Shore. I really like the location of the Villas at this resort, as they're a bit secluded and it always feels quiet and calm. 

    I spoke to a Cast Member and confirmed that the recent refurbishment of the Deluxe Studios at the Beach Club Villas replaced all the sleeper sofas with queen-size Murphy beds. The studios do sleep 5 total with a queen-sized bed, the Murphy, and the cunning single pull-down bed under the television. My youngest is in high school now and it's still her preferred sleeping spot!

    Christina, I'm not sure if you're a Beach Club veteran or just considering a first stay, but here's a few of my tips for fun in the sun at this amazing resort:
    • The Beach Club is probably best known for Stormalong Bay, which is a 3-acre aquatic wonderland featuring a sand-bottomed pool area, a relaxing lazy river, waterslides, and more. We love to spend time between busy theme park days just hanging out by the water with a good book. There will be renovations to Stormalong Bay happening in early 2025, so check before you book.
    • Location, location, location!  The Beach Club makes it convenient to walk to the International Gateway entrance of EPCOT, Disney's Hollywood Studios, Fantasia Gardens and Fairways Miniature Golf, or the restaurants on Disney's Boardwalk
    •  A meal at Beaches & Cream Soda Shop is a family tradition whenever we visit. The grilled cheese sandwich with tomato soup and the loaded plant-based tots are perfect comfort food. It goes without saying that you should save room for dessert, particularly the seasonal milkshakes and my #1 Disney dessert, the No Way Jose sundae (pro tip: this is a BIG sundae, so you can order it for one and enjoy it on a smaller scale!
    I hope this information is helpful for your vacation planning, Christina! I'm happy to help with any other questions you have about the Beach Club or Disney Vacation Club in general. Thanks so much for visiting planDisney!
