Disney's Yacht & Beach Club Resorts

Walt Disney World, Orlando

The hotel

Home to perhaps the best pool complex at Walt Disney World Resort, this is bound to be a sure-fire hit with the kids! There are over three acres of watery fun to get to grips with, featuring a waterslide and whirlpools galore. Classic surroundings recall the lazy days of summer along the Eastern Seaboard with deluxe accommodation and outstanding amenities the order of the modern day! Conveniently, Epcot and Disney's BoardWalk are within walking distance and, of course, you can easily explore all the other theme parks using the Walt Disney World Transportation System. Top restaurant is the Yachtsman Steakhouse bedecked with boating memorabilia, although younger members of the family will love the Beaches & Cream Soda Shop!

The rooms looked refreshed - wood floors, updated furniture and a modern bathroom. The holiday decorations were awesome - it really sets the mood. This has been the best Disney hotel we have stayed at. We look forward to our next visit! Read less

Disney's Yacht Club resort is one of my favorite spots to stay especially during special events such as the Flower and Garden Festival, Food and Wine Festival and the Holiday Season. The staff is very attentive, friendly and helpful. The only con is the price and I usually go when I am able to get an Annual Passholder discount.

It was super clean, the bed and linens were fresh and comfortable. The "cast members" were always very friendly and helpful. They had just started putting up Christmas decorations when we went. It was so pretty! One of my favorite things about this hotel is the lobby smell! Both Yacht and Beach club have the same scent and I love it!! I even bought a candle that smells like it so I can continue to smell it at home, lol! Pool is stunning as well, although it was too chilly to swim when we were there. Read less

Anxious, Particular, and Textbook Type A - vacations are always a challenge for me. We had to make a number of adjustments, largely last minute, to our arrangements and reservations and these all racked up some serious angst on me throughout the flight, landing, and trip to the hotel.... *reader please note, we had been awake for a full 19.5 hours once we were delivered to the hotel's front door* Debbie at the front desk was our very own Blue Fairy. She withstood the tsunami of information we unleashed and, smiling, mitigated every single particular concern we voiced. I'm not exagerating, the room, the visiting family, the magic bands, the schedule, the itinierary, our travel company, our family (again), our complete lack of experience at a disney resort....she called, clicked, calmed, and sorted every aspect and then had us into our room seemingly instantaneously. The room was spacious, clean, and comfortable. There was no noise at our ground floor room, #1051 (beautiful and convenient, we loved this room) Yacht Club you are beautiful, your grounds - your amenities - your convenient location - all amazing. But the customer service on Tuesday, Nov 19th at 10:12am will be why we book our next stay with you in February before Christmas even arrives; and we won't be using a travel agent, we are committed and confident with booking with you directly now. Debbie and everyone in your lobby that morning were an absolute joy. I'm sorry to say that I've become surprised whenever someone doesn't disappoint me, so to have such immense patience, consideration and care shown that morning was not only a breath of fresh air - it was the start of our most memorable trip to date....

As my family exited the UBER, we were greeted with a “Welcome Home!” How I wish it was my home! The room was beautifully decorated and extremely neat and very clean. All staff was friendly and courteous.
