Disney Vacation Club: Beach Club Villas and Running The Princess 5K and Half Marathon

It was last minute trip. Our friends were running the Princess Marathon, and then I decided to run the 5k. So we needed a room!

I searched for availability and saw that there were rooms at the Beach Club Villas. After I made sure it was a host resort for the race,so we would have transportation, we booked our stay.

Since we didn’t care where our room was, I chose to do an online check in. We had never done online check in before, and it was really easy. We also opted for  Disney to send us a text when the room was ready.

After our race we went to Epcot, and then got the notification that the room was ready. We went back to the room rested a little then boated over to the boardwalk for an event.

We then went to Wide World of Sports for packet pickup for a friend. Then it was back to the parks, and then off to dinner at Beaches and Cream. After dinner we went back to the room for an early bedtime to get ready for the race.

The next morning we caught a shuttle to Epcot for race start, and I went to Magic Kingdom to catch everyone on Main Street. Then after the race, I went back to the room to rest for a bit.

The best features at the Beach Club are the pools, they have 2 quiet pools in addition to their feature pool, Stormalong Bay, which has a slide and a lazy river. Also in addition to Beaches and Cream, it offers a Character Breakfast & Seafood Buffet Dinner at Cape May, and the Beach Club Marketplace with sandwiches and convenience items.

I wish I had more time at this resort!
