Disney’s Yacht Club Resort offers guests amazing amenities, an incredible location and numerous dining options. There is so much to do here, so the planDisney panelists recommend including at least one resort day in your itinerary when vacationing at this Disney Resorts Collection hotel.

Transportation is a breeze at this resort. While buses are available for guests to venture to theme parks, water parks and Disney Springs, Disney’s Yacht Club Resort is also walking distance or a short boat ride to EPCOT and Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

planDisney Tip: Don’t forget Disney Skyliner can also be accessed at EPCOT International Gateway nearby, giving guests even more choices for transportation near this resort.

A variety of room types await guests at Disney’s Yacht Club Resort. Rooms with standard, water, garden, and wood views are available and can sleep up to five adults. Suites and Club Level access are also available and can sleep up to six adults while the Turret Suite can accommodate up to eight adults.

With dining options like Ale & Compass, Yachtsman Steakhouse, The Market at Ale & Compass, and Crew’s Cup Lounge there are choices for every palate when mealtime rolls around. And let’s not forget Hurricane Hanna’s Waterside Bar & Grill, Beaches & Cream Soda Shop and Cape May Café.

On to recreation and one of the most beloved pools on Disney property. Stormalong Bay is a 750,000 gallon, beachside wonderland that offers guests three acres of aquatic fun. Take a swirl around the lazy river or put your toes in the sand … inside the pool with a sand-bottom! Plus, Stormalong Bay is also home to one of the highest hotel waterslides at Walt Disney World Resort, and it can be found at the top of the life-size shipwreck replica.

If pool time to you means a quiet afternoon soaking up the rays, there are also three leisure pools you can enjoy at Disney’s Yacht Club Resort, and the neighboring sister-resort, Disney’s Beach Club Resort.

planDisney Tip: Book a poolside cabana and spend the day lounging and enjoying cocktails or munchies from Hurricane Hanna’s Waterside Bar & Grill or mobile ordering a delicious to-go meal from Ale & Compass Restaurant.

Also, close by, guests will find Fantasia Gardens and Fairways Miniature Golf. Whether you want to work on your putting or just want to have fun with the family, this is a great afternoon activity for all. And, it’s only a short walk away!
