10 Reasons to Stay at Disney’s Yacht Club Resort

We absolutely love Disney’s Yacht Club Resort. You can definitely tell that it is a deluxe resort from the moment that you arrive. If you don’t know much about the resort, or you are having trouble selecting a resort for your next vacation, then definitely check out this list of reasons why the Yacht Club could be a winner for you and your family:


10 – Amazing location and theme.

The location for the resort is right on the water close to various parks and amenities, which is absolutely perfect. The theme is a nautical theme meant to transport you to an old yacht/nautical club, and it does that perfectly.

9 – Discounts are better than the Beach Club.

For some reason, when discounts are offered, the pricing tends to be better for the Yacht Club over the Beach Club, even though they both share many amenities and recreation activities. Check the prices and try to save yourself a few bucks.

8 – You can walk to Epcot.

This is definitely a huge selling point. It is a huge plus to be able to just walk over to Epcot and not have to wait on transportation. The walk is about fifteen minutes or so at a slow to moderate pace, and it lets you enter right at the World Showcase entrance between France and the United Kingdom.

7 – The Stormalong Bay pool area.

The pool area is seriously like its own mini waterpark. There is a huge pool and pirate ship slide, a lazy river, water play areas, and more. You definitely want to plan pool time when you stay here so that you can take full advantage of this amenity.

6 – Yachtsman Steakhouse.

This is one of Disney’s Signature Dining locations and is known for some of the best steaks on property. The restaurant offers the highest quality cuts of beef, along with delicious seafood options. This is definitely a perfect date night location and then a stroll by the water afterward.


5 – You are only a boat ride or Skyliner ride away from Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

Another huge selling point is the close proximity to a second Disney World theme park. No need to wait for a bus as you can just take the boat and get right there. You can also walk if you wanted to. However, if you make the short walk over to Epcot International Gateway, you can enjoy a fantastic Disney Skyliner ride over to Disney’s Hollywood Studios. 

4 – Close proximity to Disney’s Boardwalk.

Disney’s Boardwalk is home to various shops and entertainment, along with restaurants, snacks, a piano bar, sports club, etc. It is a great place to get an ice cream with the kids during the day and go out for adult fun in the evening. And all just only a short walk or boat ride away.

Yacht Club Boat Rentals

3 – Lots of recreational activities.

You can rent a surrey bike or regular bike to explore, go on fishing excursions, rent boats to enjoy the water, and so much more. You definitely want to check out the recreation rentals as well as the events that the resort puts on each day.

2 – There are club-level room options.

The rooms are already spacious and amazing, but if you want the highest level of service, there are club-level room options, which are only available at deluxe category resorts at Walt Disney World. These rooms come with a price, but they do include unlimited access to the private club lounge, including food and drinks (alcoholic and non-alcoholic). There are also private concierge cast members that will help plan reservations, handle room arrangements, and even handle check-in and check-out.

1 – Deluxe accommodations.

The resort is a deluxe category resort, so you can expect some of the most amazing service and lush accommodations. The resort is stunning, and the rooms are spacious and beautiful with large balconies. There is a spa and salon on-site if you have an interest in those services. There are multiple restaurants to choose from, and a large number of free-planned activities around the resort. You definitely won’t want to leave once you have checked in!

Hi! I’m Kristin, and I am a wife and mother of 2 young boys (ages 5 and 2). I first fell in love with Disney when my mom took me when I was a child. After that I proceeded to go to WDW for my senior trip with my friends, and I completed a year in the Disney College Program (working in merchandise at Mickey’s of Hollywood at Disney’s Hollywood Studios). I shared my love of Disney with my now husband and sucked him in. We vacationed at Walt Disney World 2-3 times per year. We decided that what maked more sense was just moving to Orlando so that we could live the Disney life and be here for all of our favorite events and seasons every year. That is exactly what we did! Now we are at the parks a couple times a week and go for most events and major holidays. We can’t get enough and get to experience Disney in a whole different way.
