A Review of Disney’s Yacht Club Resort

Yacht Club Walt Disney WorldAs you’ve probably guessed, I love traveling to Walt Disney World, and I’ve stayed at most of the deluxe and moderate hotels throughout the resort.  Recently, my family’s favorite resort has been Disney’s Beach Club Resort, but surprisingly, we’d never stayed at its sister resort, Disney’s Yacht Club Resort, until this year’s Disney Social Media Moms Celebration.  The Yacht Club shares the fabulous Stormalong Bay pool area with the Beach Club, and offers similar room layouts.

We stayed for four nights, in a garden-view standard room.  While the view wasn’t too excited (we overlooked a tennis court), we weren’t in the room long enough to even bother with opening the shade.  Instead, we spent our time on property down by the beach, at Stormalong Bay, eating at Beaches and Cream, and and checking out the arcade.

Yacht Club BeachThe room was very comfortable, with two queen beds and a pullout couch.  There’s also a refrigerator, a coffee maker, a large flat-screen television, and a sink outside of the bathroom (essential when traveling with a family).  The hotel itself doesn’t have a quick-service restaurant, although coffee and breakfast pastries are available for purchase in the lobby.

Transportation to the parks from the Yacht Club is fairly easy.  There’s a direct bus to the Magic Kingdom, a shared bus to Animal Kingdom, and boats to Epcot and Disney’s Hollywood Studio.  It’s also easy to walk to Epcot’s World Showcase – we did that rather than take the boat.
