Disney files building permit to make changes to popular resort

Walt Disney World Resort is home to more than 30 on-site hotels, which fall into three categories — Disney Value Resorts, Disney Moderate Resorts, and Disney Deluxe Resorts — all of which come at a pretty hefty price tag. Even Value Resorts often cost upwards of $200 per night, especially during peak times.

Now, thanks to a new building permit, it looks like a Deluxe Resort is about to get some changes. Disney’s Beach Club Resort will receive additional updates in the near future – the hotel also underwent construction last spring.

The permit in question is for “General Construction”, which is a vague description that can mean anything from minor renovations to a total overhaul. Disney hasn’t officially announced anything regarding changes to Disney’s Beach Club Resort, so it’s unlikely to be a major new theme or anything of that nature.

The Beach Club’s popular pool, Stormalong Bay, was renovated during the theme park’s pandemic-related closure and reopened in August 2020.

Regardless of the exact purpose of this new permit, remember that even small improvements can improve the guest experience at Disney World, so this permit should intrigue anyone planning to stay at this hotel in the near future.
