Overview



Located near Epcot Theme Park, Disney's Hollywood Studios and Disney's Board Walk Area, Disney's Yacht & Beach Club Resorts are lakeside Disney Deluxe Resorts featuring lush landscaping and the formal grace of a grand New England yacht club. Designed by architect Robert A.M. Stern, known for his East Coast beach houses, this splendid five-story Resort transports your guests to the summertime Shingle Style hotels of Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket.

Special Features

What is the Yacht Club like?

The Yacht Club (YC) is a five-story, 630 room resort, slightly larger than its sister resort, the Beach Club (BC), located along the shore of Crescent Lake, opposite the Boardwalk Resort. Themed after seaside New England hotels of the late 1800s, the Yacht Club has a stately, nautical look and feel; hardwood floors and brass accents enhance this feeling. Guests staying at both the Yacht Club and Beach Club have the exclusive use of Stormalong Bay, a 750,000 gallon pool/mini-water park complete with water slide, sandy bottom, whirlpools, and water currents.

Why stay at the Yacht Club?

Three very important reasons: Location, Location, Location. The Yacht Club is one of the most conveniently located resorts on Disney's property. The Yacht Club is within walking distance of Epcot, Disney's Boardwalk, the Swan, and the Dolphin hotels. It is also just a short boat ride away from the Disney's Hollywood Studios. If you like fine dining, you will be in the center of it all. Both the Yacht Club and Beach Club resorts have many fine locations, as does Disney's Boardwalk just across Crescent Lake, and the international flavor of World Showcase in Epcot. If you like to swim, one of the best hotel pools, Stormalong Bay, is right under your nose. There are several other recreational activities available at the Yacht Club

Room Features

What are the rooms like?

The average room at the Yacht Club is 380 sq. ft. Most rooms feature two queen-size beds, a table and chairs, color TV w/remote, a ceiling fan, double sinks in the dressing area, and refrigerator. Some rooms have a daybed that will accommodate the maximum 5 guests allowed per room at the Yacht Club. Also, some rooms have a "Murphy" type king-size bed that folds up against the wall. Of the 539 regular guest rooms at the Yacht Club, 483 rooms have queen-sized beds, 56 rooms have king-sized beds, and there are 10 disabled access rooms.

One nice feature is having the bathtub/toilet separated from the rest of the rooms. The double sinks are located outside the true "bathroom." All rooms have a balcony that have a table and two chairs. Rooms also have a small safe, located in the closet, in which you can store your valuables such as jewelry, airline tickets, passports, travelers' checks, etc. For bigger items, storage facilities may be available at the front desk.


The Yacht Club does have a Club Level and club-level/service rooms. All Club Level rooms are located on the hotel's 5th floor, which requires a special key card to gain entry from the elevator. There are 71 concierge suites and 20 "true" suites in a variety of sizes. 

Walt Disney World Resort made complimentary Wi-Fi service available in all of its hotels as of March 2012. 


Dining Locations at Disney's Yacht Club

If you're looking for good food while staying at the Yacht Club you needn't go far.  There are 33 dining choices within walking distance around the boardwalk. If you have a park ticket for Epcot there are an additional 50 choices within walking distance.

The Yacht Club has two very good restaurants of its own, and a brief walk along Stormalong Bay will take you to the restaurants of the Beach Club.

Ale and Compass Restaurant -- Serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner in a casual nautical atmosphere. Tables are almost always available, but an Advance Reservation is recommended if possible.

Yachtsman Steakhouse -
- Serving dinner only. This is the Yacht Club's premier restaurant (pictured below), serving tasty cuts of superbly aged beef, poultry and seafood selections are also available here. An Advance Reservation is highly recommended for dinner.  A party of two is more likely to be seated more quickly than a party of six or more. Although this rule normally applies even to the busiest of seasons, there are no guarantees. Always make an Advance Reservations at 407-WDW-Dine if possible to avoid disappointment.

Looking for a place to relax, wind down, and have a nice drink? The YC offers two lounges at your disposal. The Ale and Compass Lounge, located just off the lobby features specialty coffee and drinks. In the morning, coffee is served here from 8 to 10 a.m. The Crew's Cup, located near the Yachtsman Steakhouse, serves a multitude of beer, along with your favorite drinks and wines. Appetizers and finger foods are also available here, making the Crew's Cup a nice place for a light evening meal.

Don't forget right next door in the Beach Club is the Cape May Buffet, where you'll find Goofy and friends for a breakfast buffet or a clambake dinner served family-style (buffet). Also, shared between the YC and BC are two other dining locales, Beaches and Cream Soda Shop (open 11 a.m. -11 p.m. for Lunch and Dinner) and Hurricane Hanna's Grill. Beaches & Cream serves wonderful shakes and malts along with burgers and ice cream selections. Hanna's specializes in great, quick eats such as hot dogs, hamburgers, sausages, and more.

The Market at Yacht Club - offers quick service foods, some made to order, and other healthy options.

Beach Club Market Place - offers quick service foods, some made to order, and desserts!

Best Pool on Disney Property


Beach Club Pool

The Yacht Club has one of the best, if not the best swimming holes (at a hotel) in all of Walt Disney World. Stormalong Bay is a three-acre water playground shared between the Yacht Club and the Beach Club. It's a great place to have fun or just relax. Stormalong Bay has many different sections that encompass its 750,000 gallons of water. There are shallow wading areas for the younger ones, complete with sand bottoms. There are also larger and deeper areas, some with sand, some without.

A "shipwreck" on the shore of Crescent Lake provides the entrance to an exciting water slide for the adventurous folks. There is a circular area in Stormalong Bay with water jets that create a current. All you have to do is float. the water will move you along! All around Stormalong Bay are lounge chairs where you can relax and catch some rays. Among other things, you'll find a waterfall and a couple of hot tubs hidden amongst the scenery. Note, however, that lifejackets cannot be worn when using the water slide. The water slide includes an enclosed tube and a child with a lifejacket can get stuck. If your child requires the use of a lifejacket, you can request to use the pool and slide at the Boardwalk Inn.

There is a quiet pool at the Yacht Club, found on the far end of the hotel away from the noise and excitement. The pool is located on the front/side of the hotel farthest from the Beach Club and closest to the Swan/Dolphin. There is also a hot tub in the same area as the quiet pool. These facilities are open 24 hours, as long as you are quiet! You can also use the quiet pool/hot tub on the Beach Club side of things. This pool is located on the back side of the Beach Club, closest to Epcot. You may see this area if you walk the path to Epcot.

Transportation to Other Parks

Transportation - How do I get there from here?

  • Epcot - Epcot can be easily reached by foot, a short 10-minute walk along the water way leading to Epcot's International Gateway. If walking isn't for you, there is a boat to ferry guests from all the Epcot resorts (Swan, Dolphin, Boardwalk, Yacht Club, and Beach Club) to the International Gateway, but the walk is faster and a bit more scenic. To board the boat, simply exit the lobby on the rear side of the hotel and walk straight down to the dock. Be sure you're in the Epcot line (left side facing the water), not the Disney's Hollywood Studios (right side facing the water) line.

    Epcot resort guests CAN use the International Gateway entrance to Epcot even though World Showcase may not yet be open for the day. Cast members will help usher you toward Future World in Epcot. The International Gateway also offers full-service ticketing and purchasing of annual passes. The guest services window usually opens 30 minutes prior to park opening.

  • Disney's Hollywood Studios - The best way to reach the Studios is by boat. You can meet the boat at the dock just as you would the boat for Epcot, by exiting the rear or the hotel and walking straight down to the dock. Again, make sure you catch the right boat. The CMs will surely let you know which boat you're getting on. The boat usually stops by the Swan and Dolphin and Boardwalk via the Studios. The trip takes about 20 minutes.

    The walking path from the Boardwalk resort to the Studios is now open. If you're up to a 20-minute walk, enjoy the stroll!

  • Magic Kingdom - The Magic Kingdom can easily be reached by taking a bus from the front of the hotel. The bus will stop at the Beach Club, the Boardwalk, and then you're just moments away from the Magic! Another longer, but more scenic, journey is to take the monorail from Epcot's front entrance, transfer at the TTC, and then continue to the MK. Traveling this way does take some time and some walking, but you get to see a little bit more, and it lends to resort hopping if the mood strikes. Depending on traffic, buses can take 15-25 minutes to reach the Magic Kingdom.
  • Disney's Animal Kingdom - Disney's Animal Kingdom can be reached by taking a bus from the front of the hotel. The bus will stop at the Beach Club, the Boardwalk, and then you're just moments away from Disney's newest theme park! Depending on traffic, buses can take 10-20 minutes to reach the Animal Kingdom.
  • Typhoon Lagoon, Blizzard Beach, Pleasure Island and Downtown Disney - Buses take you directly from the hotel to these locations after picking up passengers from the Beach Club and Boardwalk Inn. Travel times vary to each of these locations, but many of these attractions are relatively close to the Yacht Club, so you never have to wait too long. A trip to Typhoon Lagoon takes approximately 20 minutes. A trip to Downtown Disney takes approximately 30 minutes.
  • Disney's Boardwalk - The Boardwalk faces the Yacht and Beach Clubs on the opposite side of Crescent Lake. There are two foot bridges, one in the direction of the Swan/Dolphin hotels, and one in the direction of Epcot, allowing you to walk to this entertainment complex and hotel.
  • For all other locations, including Fort Wilderness, and resort hotels, buses to Downtown Disney will allow you to connect with other transportation to your final destination. You can also take the monorail from the Future World side of Epcot to reach the TTC. Travel times vary widely here. You can time it just right and have a short, efficient trip, or have a trip lasting almost an hour. Hope for the best!

    Hint: When in a hurry, it usually takes only 5 minutes to get a taxi. Go to the valet station at the front of the Yacht Club and they will call a taxi for you. Trips to destinations on property range in cost from $8 to $15. For example, the typical taxi fare from the Yacht Club to the Grand Floridian costs $15.00  (not including tip).
