Disney's Beach Club Resort is a beach-themed deluxe AAA Four-Diamond Award–winning resort at the Walt Disney World Resort. It opened on November 19, 1990. The resort is owned and operated by Walt Disney Parks, Experiences and Consumer Products.
Disney's Beach Club Resort is located in the Epcot Resort Area, next to a sister resort, Disney's Yacht Club Resort, and across Crescent Lake from Disney's BoardWalk Resort. Disney's Yacht Club Resort and Disney's Beach Club Resort and Villas share amenities and resources, including staff and management. Disney's Beach Club Resort is home to a 73,000 square feet (6,800 m2) convention center which is shared with Disney's Yacht Club Resort. The villas on site are part of the Disney Vacation Club, sitting on 6 acres (2.4 ha) of land and consisting of 282 units.
This hotel was designed by Robert A.M. Stern Architects., and themed after the seaside cottages of 19th century Newport. The resort's light blue color distinguishes it from the gray siding with red and white striped awnings of Disney's Yacht Club Resort.
Boat transportation from the resort runs to Epcot and Disney's Hollywood Studios as well as Disney's BoardWalk Resort and the Walt Disney World Swan and Walt Disney World Dolphin resorts. The resort is about five minutes walking distance from Epcot, and roughly fifteen minutes walking distance to Disney's Hollywood Studios. Guests can use the International Gateway entrance to Epcot in World Showcase between the France and United Kingdom pavilions.

The resort also offers a fifth floor Concierge Level with private floor access, a concierge lounge, turn-down service, and other amenities. The Concierge Level is home to the resort's Presidential Suite. All rooms were renovated in 2009. Rooms were also renovated from 2015-2016. Rooms still have a beach theme, but are more modern with shades of gray, brown, and light blue. The hallways also were re-painted and re-papered, along with new carpets and new colors on the doors of the rooms.
