Watch Epcot Fireworks from Your Beach Club Room

Did you know that you can see Epcot fireworks from Beach Club?! I had always heard stories of families watching the Epcot fireworks on their Beach Club room balconies. But my family and I had personally never experienced this magical moment.

That is, until our last visit to Disney’s Beach Club Resort. We booked a Garden/Woods view and were pleasantly surprised to see the Epcot fireworks show from our room balcony! If you’ve never stayed here, the Beach Club Resort (and its sister property the Yacht Club Resort) is my family’s favorite hotel at Walt Disney World.

This deluxe resort hotel provides a convenient location, AMAZING pool, and kid-friendly amenities. If you are considering a stay at Disney’s Beach Club Resort, continue reading below, and we’ll provide all our favorite tips on getting the best room.

This article also includes a photo and video tour of our Garden/Woods View Room at the Beach Club Resort. You will also see how we were able to watch the Epcot fireworks right from our balcony!

Room Types at the Beach Club Resort

As mentioned above, Disney’s Beach Club Resort is one of the best places to stay at Walt Disney World. At this hotel, you are within walking distance to two of the theme parks. Epcot is roughly a 5-minute walk while Disney’s Hollywood Studios is around a twenty minute walk (or ferry boat ride).

Before we provide our full review of our Beach Club room, let’s discuss some of the room options you will find when booking Disney’s Beach Club Resort. You’ll notice several different room types at the Beach Club hotel including:

  • Standard View Room
  • Garden/Woods View Rooms
  • Water View Rooms (view of Crescent Lake)
  • Deluxe Rooms
  • Club Level
  • Suites

Since the photos and video tour in this post are from a Garden/Woods View room, I will focus mostly on this room type. However, the room layout is basically the same if you have a standard or water view room at the Beach Club. The Deluxe Room and the suites at Disney’s Beach Club offer more square footage for those families looking for additional space.

The Club Level rooms allow access to a club lounge with refreshments and snacks at select times throughout the day. Club Level rooms also include things like personalized cast member assistance and robes/slippers among a few other amenities.

How to Get a Cheap Room at Disney’s Beach Club

If you are open to staying at Disney’s Beach Club Villas, my family and I often use a special trick for finding a cheap rate on a Disney room.

Disney’s Beach Club Villas

The Beach Club Villas are located on the same property as Disney’s Beach Club Resort and Disney’s Yacht Club Resort. So, you are able to use all of the resort amenities (like the pool) whether you stay at the villas or the hotels. Since Disney’s Beach Club Villas is part of the Disney Vacation Club, you can sometimes rent timeshare points from Disney Vacation Club members to stay there cheap.

There are different ways to go about renting timeshare points, but we find David’s Vacation Club Rentals to be the best DVC rental site. This is a really reputable company, and the employees are super easy to work with. You just price out your vacation dates on their cost calculator, fill out the online form, and receive an email reply from David’s Vacation Club Rentals.

You can typically save hundreds of dollars each time you are able to use this method for booking a room at Disney World. If you are looking for additional tips on choosing the right Disney World hotel, join our Facebook group for personalized help on finding the best resort for your family!

Disney’s Beach Club Room Amenities

When staying at the Beach Club Resort at Walt Disney World, you will find standard amenities available in your hotel room. These room amenities include:

  • Hair Dryer
  • Keurig Coffee Maker
  • In-room Safe
  • Iron and Ironing Board
  • Mini Refrigerator
  • Shampoo and Conditioner
  • Body Lotion
  • Soap

It’s important to note that other amenities are available upon request. These items (microwave, bed rails, pack-n-play) are particularly helpful if you are traveling to Disney with a baby or toddler.

Can You See Epcot Fireworks from Beach Club?

If you book a regular hotel room (standard, garden/woods, or water view) at Disney’s Beach Club Resort, you will be able to make specific room requests for your visit. These room request options include:

  • Large Balcony
  • Upper Floor
  • Lower Floor
  • Ground Floor

You can call the hotel to make additional requests like bed type or room location. My family and I like to request a large balcony since we tend to spend time sitting outside our room regardless of the view. If you don’t plan to use the balcony, the small (no seating) balcony would probably be sufficient.

If you booked a garden/woods view, I also suggest requesting a room on an upper floor since you have a greater chance at seeing the Epcot fireworks.

We love the bright, airy feeling that greets you upon entering your room at the Beach Club. The wide entrance to the room offers a cabinet with a mini refrigerator and a Keurig Coffee Maker.

Just after this little nook, you will find a roomy closet with your in-room safe. Across from the closet, you will find the family sized bathroom. The vanity portion of the bathroom provides two separate sinks and a large mirror.

When you enter the hotel room, you will find either 2 queen beds or 1 king bed across from the flat screen television with console.

A small desk and chair are located on the far side of the room near the balcony.

It’s important to note that some of the larger rooms also include a sofa/daybed.

Disney Fireworks outside the Parks

In addition to the Beach Club Resort, visitors to Disney World can catch a good view of the fireworks in other locations. Guests staying at one of the Epcot area hotels could easily find a viewing spot near the Disney BoardWalk to watch the fireworks. Even though you wouldn’t be able to watch from your hotel room, guests at the following hotels could easily take a short walk just outside their resort to find a good spot to view fireworks:

  • Walt Disney World Swan
  • Disney’s BoardWalk Inn
  • Disney’s Yacht Club Resort
  • Walt Disney World Dolphin
  • Walt Disney World Swan Reserve

Additionally, you can watch Magic Kingdom fireworks at several of the monorail hotels. Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort offers a prime location for viewing the Cinderella Castle where the Magic Kingdom firework shows take place. You can sit on the beach area outside the Grand Floridian Disney resort to get a good view of the show.

Disney’s Contemporary Resort features theme park view rooms where you can watch the fireworks show from your balcony. Additionally, you can secure a dining reservation at California Grill inside the Contemporary Resort. One of the best spots for viewing the fireworks is on the observation deck just outside this signature restaurant.

Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort is located on Seven Seas Lagoon near the Grand Floridian. Resort guests can watch the Magic Kingdom fireworks on the beach at the Polynesian. Similar to our experience at the Beach Club, my family was pleasantly surprised to snag great views of the fireworks from our balcony at Disney’s Polynesian Villas and Bungalows. We could also hear the music from the Electrical Water Pageant right from our room!

Final Review of Rooms at Beach Club

My family and I come back to the Beach Club Resort and Villas and the Yacht Club Resort each time we visit Walt Disney World. I enjoy trying out the other hotels on Disney property, but we really prefer the setting near Disney’s Boardwalk, Epcot, and Hollywood Studios.

We were concerned that the addition of the Disney Skyliner would make this area feel really crowded, but luckily that hasn’t been the case during our visits. Not only do you get a bright, spacious room at Disney’s Beach Club Resort; but, you also get to use the BEST pool on Disney World property!

    1. Hi Kathy,

      Thanks so much for reaching out. In order to view the EPCOT fireworks from your room balcony, you would need to reserve a Garden View or Woods View room. There should also be an option to choose a higher floor. When you check in at Beach Club, you can ask the cast member to put you in a room facing the Epcot fireworks. This does not guarantee that you will be able to see Epcot fireworks from your room, but it does increase your chances. If your Garden/Woods view room does not overlook the fireworks show, you can view the fireworks outside the Beach Club near the bridge to Epcot. This is a super short walk away from your room. My kids enjoy grabbing ice cream to watch the fireworks here if our room doesn’t have a view. Hope that helps and have a great trip!
