Where to Hit The Beach At Walt Disney World

The rock boarders and net fences are new along the shores of the Seven Seas Lagoon, but honestly, guests of Walt Disney World haven't been allowed full access to beach fun on the lagoon for more than a decade now. There are still a few of us who can remember swimming off the shores of Bay Lake, but many Disney fans have always had to look someplace else for their beach day. That doesn't mean that Disney Guests can enjoy a day at the beach without ever leaving the property, you just have to head to the fabulously Imagineered beaches at Stromalong Bay or Typhoon Lagoon.

Stormalong Bay at Disney's Yacht Club and Beach Club

If a full-blown water park isn't quite your thing, but you still want to let the kids have a day at the beach, consider booking your room at Disney's Yacht Club, or Beach Club Resorts. Nestled in between the two beautiful hotels you'll find Disney's most spectacular hotel pool of all " Stormalong Bay.

Several pools, boasting a total of 750,000 gallons of water, which all seem to be interconnected through the magic of landscaping make up a mini water park with a beach, slide, lazy river, general swim area, and hot tubs. One of the pools includes a full sand bottom bringing the beach to life, but without pesky seaweed or jellyfish. The sandy shallows are about two feet deep at the most, which makes it a great place for little ones to hang out or grown-ups to just lounge around in the water.

This unique pool is set aside for the exclusive use of guests staying at Disney's Yacht Club or Disney's Beach Club Resorts, but it makes sense that if you want a day at the beach, you'll have to stay at the Beach Club.

Disney's Typhoon Lagoon

With sandy beaches and a 2.5 acre surf pool make for an awesome tropical excursion at Walt Disney World. This Disney water park is an oasis of watery fun for guests of all ages. Typhoon Lagoon has 11 exciting attractions, with classic water slides, tube rides, and a spectacular lazy river.

Let's talk about that roaring surf! It may have a cement bottom, but it also has some gnarly waves for body surfing anytime, and on select days of the week guests can take Surf lessons with the pros prior to park opening. Typhoon Lagoon is a true Disney classic, and the best way there is to escape to a tropical island while staying in central Florida.

The Park has tons of seating available, but if you're looking for someplace a little more private, guests can rent a spot in the Getaway Glen Umbrellas or even a premium Beachcomber Shack. Rentals are available for rental on a first-come, first-served basis. For advanced reservations and information, call (407) WDW-PLAY [(407) 939-7529].
