Major multi-year refurbishment of Disney's Beach Club Resort about to begin

Disney's Beach Club Resort is about to undergo a major refurbishment project that will refresh nearly every aspect of the resort.

The extensive refurbishment project will begin in the winter of 2014, and will continue throughout all areas of the resort for approximately 20 months. Along with refurbishing guests rooms, the public areas of the resort will also be remodeled.

The theme will remain the same, but will bring fresh decor to a hotel that has remained largely unchanged since it opened in late 1990.

It is expected that the resort will remain in operation during the work, with affected areas closed off, in a similar way to how the Polynesian Resort is currently operating during its remodel.

Does anyone know if the refurb for BCV rooms has started yet? Has anyone seen any signs of work?

Looks like the bridges crossing the lazy river at the Beach and Yacht club resort, Stormalong bay pool are almost done. The bridge decking and railing is complete across the spans. Now they are working on stairs and railings. 82846

That's not what Mim told me.

The DVC refurb isn't supposed to start until March so most likely your room will not be refurbed unless you happen to get one of the first ones done.

Just call Mim and ask her!

We'll be there (first time!) in a couple weeks and about three weeks ago we received a letter outlining exactly what areas of stormy (that's what us insiders call it) will be closed. If you haven't gotten one yet you should if it'll be refurbing'ed (more insider talk) during your stay.

I'm staying in a studio villa at the end of April....what can I expect? Hopefully the room is nice. I have never stayed in the villas before. And of course if the pool is closed during that time, that would hurt as that was he main reason we're staying there. That and location.

Man, that look so much better.

Slide and area it empties into closed thru 2/2 and lazy river closing after that (but I'm not sure for how long).
