    Hi Erin! Thanks for all the amazing advice! Just booked a last minute trip-excited to try Beach Club Concierge for the 1st time. Can you please tell me what times the lounge is open & what are the typical selections? And is the lounge near the evelator

    Hi Sabrina,

    Thank you so much for the kind words.

    I've stayed at either the Beach Club or Beach Club Villas more than a dozen times. And I've stayed or visited the Club level at other Disney hotels, but I've never stayed Club Level at the Beach Club. (This is definitely on my to-do list!)  To confirm my understanding of the situation, I did some research and also called Disney reservations on your behalf. This is what I learned:

    - The Stone Harbor Club concierge level lounge is located directly next to the elevator. 
    - The lounge is generally open from 6:30 a.m. until 10:00 p.m. Coffee is available right away, food usually comes out at 7:00 a.m.
    - The food changes throughout the day. In the morning there are continental breakfast items such as pastries, coffee, juice, cold cereal, yogurt, and fruit. Snacks available from late morning on include cookies, chips, and soft drinks. During the mid-day hours there are small sandwiches and/or soup, as well as fruit and snack items. In the evening there are hot bites which vary daily. These might include things like mini quiche, rangoons, or similar items, as well as an assortment of cheeses. Later in the evening there are bite-sized desserts and cocktails added. 

    That all sounds pretty heavenly to me.

    There are some great photos and information about the Beach Club concierge lounge on the wonderful independent website You'll want to search there for an article by Jack Spence called, "Beach Club Resort - Part Two of Two" in his "World According to Jack" blog.

    Good luck with your planning. Please let me know if you need more help.
