    First time staying in a Villa; we are at BCV. Any suggestions for room location? We would like to be close to the "action," but are worried we will be set back too far from the actual resort. Also, is it possible to request an early check-in?

    Hi Nicole,

    You have picked an incredible place to stay during your next Walt Disney World vacation. Disney's Beach Club Villas are one of my favorite places to stay. My family will be spending three days there next month and we are already counting down!

    In my view, location is one of the best perks of a stay at Disney's Beach Club Villas. The Resort is situated just a 5-8 minute walk to Epcot's International Gateway entrance, or short boat ride to Disney's Hollywood Studios. This easy access to not one, but two, Walt Disney World Theme Parks gets two thumbs way from me!

    While the Villas are situated in their own building across a small courtyard from Disney's Beach Club Resort, the two Resorts are connected by a short covered walkway, making it so easy to get from one to another. Truth be told, I have also found that some rooms in the Villas offer closer access to Epcot as well as self-parking.

    If you are looking to be close to the action, Disney's Beach Club Villas are a fantastic choice. In addition to the close proximity to Epcot and Disney's Hollywood Studios, there are so many dining and entertainment options in the Crescent Lake and Disney's BoardWalk area. Shopping, dining, music, dancing, surrey bike rentals, and a marina are all close by.

    Nicole, while you are certainly able to request an early check-in, and Disney will do their best to accommodate, in most cases this will not be possible as Disney requires sufficient time to ensure your room is in shipshape condition for your arrival. While normal check-in time is 4 p.m., you are certainly welcome to leave any luggage with Bell Services and enjoy time at Stormalong Bay until your room is ready.

    Wishing you a magical upcoming stay at Disney's Beach Club Villas!
