Hi there, friends! Welcome to another roundup of What’s New around the Disney World Resorts!
Today, we’ll be chatting about Disney’s Yacht Club and Beach Club Resorts. Let’s get started!
Beach Club Resort Construction Update
In case you missed it, the cult favorite Beaches & Cream Soda Shop has temporarily closed for a lengthy refurbishment. Thankfully, there is a temporary satellite location in Ariel’s, a place typically used for wedding receptions and the like. During our most recent visit, we spotted Beaches & Cream’s logo rug in front of the temporary location, so you should be able to find it with more ease!
We also noticed a few tables outside…
…in addition to a treat display that wasn’t there before.
Beach Club Resort Merchandise Update
We recently told you about a bunch of Disney Vacation Club merchandise we found at Disney’s Old Key West Resort and Wilderness Lodge, and it’s popped up in Beach Club Marketplace as well!
We had already seen the Disney Vacation Club Loungefly backpack ($65.99)…
…“Good Times Great Place” sweatshirt ($59.99)…
…and Disney Vacation Club suitcase ($159)…
…but we spotted this Disney Vacation Club tumbler ($29.99) for the first time!
While we were in Beach Club Marketplace, we noticed that its daily trivia board was featuring Animal Kingdom. Do you know all the answers??
Yacht Club Resort Construction Update
Making our way to Disney’s Yacht Club Resort, the resort’s lobby is undergoing refurbishment. Based on what we heard and saw, it seems like they are replacing or resurfacing the hardwood floors.
Due to the construction work, the Bell Services desk is serving as the temporary Registration, Concierge, and Front Desk location.
Black construction drapes start immediately when you walk in from outside and they go all the way up to the ceiling of the second floor.
Since the lobby is currently under refurbishment, Yacht Club Resort’s globe has been temporarily moved to the area outside The Market at Ale & Compass. We’ll keep you updated as the lobby’s construction work progresses!
Yacht Club Resort Merchandise Update
While we’ve spotted all this merchandise around Disney World already, it’s still fun to see!
