1800 Epcot Resort Blvd, Bay Lake, Florida, United States
"We recently spent 4 nights in a 1 Bedroom Villa at BCV. Though we are familiar with the accommodations typically offered at Disney’s deluxe properties, this was our first time staying in a DVC room. While I wasn’t sure how I would like BCV, we had a wonderful stay and I can’t wait to return. All of the cast members throughout the resort–front desk, bell services, Beach Club Marketplace, DVC–were ready to welcome guests “back home”, and went out of their way to talk to guests and make sure their stay was perfect. It is clear that Disney is taking COVID seriously and wants their guests to feel completely safe at all times. All cast members were wearing masks, and plexiglass was in place at the front desk and Marketplace. Masks were enforced for guests. The room contained a list of housekeeping’s enhanced cleaning measures, and the TV remotes were wrapped in plastic. Both Stephen and Georgette at the front desk were very kind and helpful. We initially weren't able to get into our room at check-in time due to a housekeeping issue; however, Stephen made sure to add a little extra magic to our stay while the issue was handled, and we were taken care of with the highest level of customer service I’ve ever experienced from Disney. Our 1 Bedroom Villa was a gorgeous space that felt much more like a “home away from home” than a hotel room. The living area featured a small foyer, full kitchen, two sitting areas for eating, a sofa bed, and a washer/dryer. The bedroom included a king bed, desk, and impressive bathroom consisting of three separate rooms- one with a vanity and tub (and huge closet), another with a vanity and walk-in shower, and a third for the toilet. Both rooms had patios, as we were on the first floor. The villa felt classic and comfortable, but included plenty of modern updates such as several USB outlets and two of the largest TVs I’ve seen on Disney property. While some amenities, such as Stormalong Bay and the more upscale dining options, were closed during our stay, we did not feel this was an inconvenience. Between Beaches and Cream, Beach Club Marketplace, and the food offerings open at BoardWalk, we had a solid selection of dining options at our convenience. The pool at BCV was fine for relaxing and cooling down, and we were able to walk over to Luna Park Pool at BoardWalk as well. I would stay at BCV again without hesitation and look forward to returning soon."
"I booked BCV because we planned on doing Epcot for the F&W and we like being able to walk to Epcot. We got to the resort before noon and our room was not ready so we decided to have lunch at Epcot. We received our text that our room was ready around 3 pm. The room was located on the first floor and close to the parking lot. This made it easy to get our luggage from our car. I usually request a higher floor, but I actually loved having a patio to sit on and enjoying my morning coffee. We booked for two nights in the one bedroom villas. Room was very clean and the appliances looked brand new. We like to cook breakfast in the room. Very comfy king size bed. BCV is doing room service. Breakfast & dinner. We ordered dinner one night. Lobster roll and a burger. They call you when they are coming. The resort was very dead. It was weird because we are use to so many people in the lobby and other areas. The DVC pool had one family in it when we walked by and the main pool did not look busy at all. The main store at BC is closed for refurbishment, but they made a temp store across the way. We walked in to buy the Halloween treats. We went to Martha vineyards bar to also try their Halloween drink. They spaced out the seating and we were able to find seating outside. All the cast members were nice in the main lobby, bar and at the Villas. No issues with people not wearing mask. Keep up the great work! Hope to be back soon."
"Just came back from a 5 night vacation at BCV. Had a two bedroom unit. It actually is bigger in person than it looks in pictures. Was able to get a room near the parking lot door, so that really helped carrying stuff to/from the car (albeit we used the elevator for the cooler and large suitcase). Our balcony was super big, but with the heat and humidity, didn't use it much. Had a nice view of Spaceship Earth. Too bad there are no fireworks. Not much staff around, and those that were, didn't seem friendly but I think they were probably just contracted temps to do the cleaning, etc., in other words, I don't think they were vetted cast members. Anyway, the staff at the BC front desk were amazing. Kudos to them. The BC lobby was like a ghost town so that was odd. But boy oh boy, StormAlongBay was amazing with the small attendance. We hung at the pool on our last night and as we passed by Beaches and Cream, it almost felt like old times. That place seemed to be jumping with people hanging around eating ice cream, etc. So that felt good. Felt normal. Felt like "home". All in all, Disney doing a GREAT job with Covid Protection. Please don't hesitate to go down there."
