Yacht Club Resort

 Yacht Club

Inspired by coastal New England vacation resorts of the late 1800's, the Yacht Club (and its sister, the Beach Club) is set along Crescent Lake, just behind Epcot. Within walking distance of Epcot and Disney's Boardwalk, the sister resorts house around 1,200 spacious rooms.

Yacht Club at night

Evoking the design of New England seashore resorts of the 1880's, the gray clapboard building welcomes guests via a wooden planked bridge. A lighthouse on the pier serves as a beacon to welcome guests after a long day in the parks.


The somewhat formal vibe in the lobby is enhanced by stained wood floors and brass acccents. A huge globe sits in the center of the lobby, and ship models can be found throughout. Hefty leather chairs and nautical accents such as compasses complete the theme. The Yacht Club is a convention resort, and as such, the clientele in the lobby can often be seen wearing business attire and doing work during breaks. Nonetheless, this resort is still very family friendly, so groups with kids should not be turned off.

This resort offers one of the most popular pools in all of Walt Disney World, Stormalong Bay. The pool includes sandy bottoms, water jets that bubble up around you, a lazy river, a sandbar play area, and quicksand like areas, where you seem to sink into the bottom of the pool. It also has an incredible waterslide that flows out of an old shipwreck. If you can manage to pull yourself away from  the pool, the resort offers boat and bike rentals for extra fun. The Yacht Club has a wonderful location, within walking distance of four other hotels and two theme parks. Numerous dining and entertainment opportunities are just a short stroll away. Set sail on a fabulous vacation at the Yacht Club!
