5 Things to LOVE: Yacht Club Resort

My family recently stayed at Disney's Yacht Club Resort - Club Level for the first time. We really enjoyed our stay. Here are some reasons why:


1. Location.

The EPCOT area resorts have an incredible location. Not only is it beautiful, it's also quieter than the Magic Kingdom area resorts. We love the views of Crescent Lake and the Boardwalk all lit up at night. We walked to EPCOT and to Hollywood Studios, which really helped us obtain that all-important Boarding Group for the new Rise of the Resistance ride in Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge!



2. Beautiful, renovated room.

Our room featured 2 queen beds, a daybed (super handy for our almost grown up daughters), a desk, plenty of closet and drawer space plus a really nice bathroom with a rain shower head!



3. Stormalong Bay pool

Shared with the Beach Club Resort, this is easily the most spectacular pool complex in Walt Disney World. With the Flying Jib slide, sandy beach, lazy river and tons of loungers on the pool deck, there's something for everyone here. If you stay at Yacht Club or Beach Club, I recommend setting aside a day just for the pool.



4. Dining

Yacht Club has several dining locations to choose from:

The Market, featuring Grab n Go selections

Crews Cup, a casual sports bar with snacks and sandwiches

Ale & Compass, a casual sit down restaurant

Ale & Compass Lounge, for adult beverages and snacks

The Yachtsman, an upscale steak house

PLUS, easy access to the dining at Disney's Beach Club resort.


*I recommend getting a Park Hopper if you stay at any of these resorts. My family enjoys popping into EPCOT for dinner, or dessert at Les Halles in France.


5. Quiet location

My family LOVES Beach Club. We were a little hesitant to try Yacht Club because we love Beach so much. I have to say, we still love Beach Club but Yacht Club was so nice and quiet in comparison. There's no character meal at Yacht, so the lobby was more chill. And our room was SUPER QUIET, which helped us recharge our batteries for all the fun in the parks. I would definitely stay here again.


I would be remiss if I didn't also recognize the terrific service we got at Yacht Club. The Cast Member who checked us in, Mark, was just above and beyond! Everyone was super nice and we really like it.
