Disney's Yacht & Beach Club Resorts

Walt Disney World, Orlando

Virgin rating

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!

Why are the restaurants unwilling to serve food after 9:30pm but drinks are served until 11:30pm? Why is the baggage held on a cart in the rain and must be requested several times? Why was the view from our balcony a large tree? Why are there no soft close toilet seats in the rooms?

Lovely, relaxing place. This is a great hotel to stay at if you want to be away from the craziness of the parks. It’s so peaceful. The pool is the main attraction here. The pool area is so big so there’s something to do for all ages. The only real issue I had was the lack of food options. Both the Beach and the Yacht club are in real need of better counter service options. And if you want to eat at the sit down restaurants, you need a reservation. Other that that, this is a great place to stay. Read less

The Yacht Club resort was very clean, elegant, and comfortable. The staff were very helpful, pleasant and worked hard to find a solution to any question or issue. The lobby is very spacious, pretty and a good place to just rest after a long day of park hopping in the heat. We were surprised at how really lovely the grounds were, as well as the beauty of the immaculately kept waterfront. It really seemed as if we were "special" and occupying a very grand hotel, just there for us! The boat ride access to the parks (Epcot and Hollywood Studios) was perfect for us, and the buses for the other parks stopped by every 20 minutes right in the front of the hotel. Parking was easy too. The restaurant was very good, and the service incredibly fast. I cannot think of a single negative about this place. We will return. Read less
