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!

My wife and I are celebrating our 50th anniversary and her 70th birthday at WDW with our son and his family as I write this. We decided to pay more than we ever have in our life together for a room at the Yacht Club. It is a great, well-located property with a very courteous staff. The beds are good and our first floor room has a nice view. The room is clean, mostly, but has quite a bit of dust on some flat surfaces, such as the open shelves in the wardrobe. We would have no real reason to complain, except that for over $400 per night one would think that there would be hot water for baths and showers early in the morning h(I.e, 4 to 6 a.m.). Instead, after letting the water run for at least five minutes, all we get is a 94 degree F water temp (taken with a digital thermometer). Not good. We reported this to a manager yesterday. He sent a maintenance person to our room later in the morning and the hot water was ok (we confirm that as it seems to begin getting warmer at about 6:30). He apologized for the problem and credited out account with $200, which was a nice gesture, but did not correct the problem. It’s our second morning here now and the same issue exists. Specifically, it is 6:49 a.m. right now and the water is just beginning to get warm. We have stayed in economy chains that had hot water 24/7, so this situation is really disappointing. It certainly takes some of the “magic” out of our celebration. Read less

Tried to book a Cabana at the yacht club. Ran into several difficulties but the most concerning was the front line lady I dealt with. She had no idea how to handle our situation and instead of reaching out to someone (possibly a manager) sent us on wild goose chase number two of the day. Despite her curtness 😔 (you know that person who is being polite but because they have to... completely insinser and wants you to know, yes Debby that was you!) and lacking knowledge that you should know being front line staff. We ended up booking the Cabana but it was not made easy. A simple fix I hope in the future as we definitely LOVED the cabana's. ****And Travis**** If your lucky enough to have Travis as your Beach Cabana attendent then your in good hands! Honest ones to boot! (my husband left his Panama jack sunglasses behind, only to have front desk call our room within 30 minutes that they were turned in) Thank you Travis! ❤️ Honestly will take you far in life! Your good people! Let me begin by giving credit where it is due. By happenstance I met Phil who is one of the managers at the yacht club the very day of all the difficulties. Clearly Phil was on the ball. By simply touring the area and begin polite and friendly he engaged in a conversation with myself. Which led to me telling him what had happened thus far on our trip. In Disney fashion Phil was quick to make things right. This is why we always return to Disney's Yacht club. I have reviewed this place in the past and stand my ground that the service here is fantastic. When something is wrong they are quick to fix and sort things out. Thank-you to Phil. His kindness made my daughter's day. (As well as ours). 💗 Read less

All Disney properties are amazing, but Yacht Club really stands out! The location is so perfect within walking distance of Epcot, the Boardwalk and Hollywood Studios! The little market inside has a great selection of gifts too!

We just left the Yacht Club on a 10 day 9 night trip CL WV. Originally we were staying at the Beach Club but were moved due to work on the 5th floor. Let me say, that Disney called me 10 days before the trip and gave me options and we chose to stay at the Yacht Club since we love the pool. Disney also called 4 days before to see if we needed anything prior to the trip. Also a nice touch. The room was lovely, clean with a great view of the lake and pool area. We also could view the Epcot fireworks nightly. The staff was top shelf allways going out of their way to help. The food on club level was just enough to get you going in the morning and start you off at night. The staff cleaned and checked the rooms twice a day. The most impressive thing however is what the resort did for the children Halloween night. For two hours in connection with the Beach Club they had candy, cook your own s’mores, games for the children. It was a great touch. I can’t tell your how wonderful the trip was and we look forward to return in 2 years. Great resort, top notch pool with the best slide at Disney, wonderful staff. Thank you Disney. Read less
