A Guide to Disney's Yacht Club Resort

A Guide Disney's Yacht Club Resort

My family and I had the amazing opportunity to stay at Disney's Yacht Club Resort last week. We've stayed at lots of Walt Disney World Resorts over the years. From Value Resorts to Deluxe Resorts, we've seen a BUNCH of beautiful accommodations at Walt Disney World! So far, Disney's Yacht Club is our favorite. Let me show you why.

American Tourister Pack More Fun Disney

This is my family. Thanks to American Tourister we all had our very own suitcase to pack for more fun!

Lobby at Disney's Yacht Club Resort

The moment we walked through the doors to the lobby, I knew we were home. {That's Disney speak for where you'll stay for the next few days.} I mean, look at how beautiful the lobby is.

Pro Tip: Be sure to look for the Hidden Mickey's around Disney's Yacht Club Resort. They are lots of fun to find!

After we checked in, it was time to go see our room. If the rooms were as beautiful and charming as the outside and the lobby, we knew we were in for a treat. Let's go inside!

Absolutely breathtaking. With two double beds and a daybed, it comfortable sleeps a family of five. Do you crave your cup of coffee first thing in the morning? There's a coffee maker in each room. Need a place to sit and do a little writing, or maybe you want to map out the next day at the Parks. There's a nice desk area just for you. This is a good time to tell you about the free wi-fi in each room, and around the entire resort area. With two sinks in the bathroom area, you won't need to worry about sharing while brushing your teeth. 

My family's favorite amenity in our room?? The mini-fridge. Each night, we filled it with bottled water, small bottles of juice and soda. Each morning, before we headed out for the day, we filled our backpack with cold drinks to keep us hydrated throughout our day. This way we only had to buy drinks when we ate a meal at a restaurant.

Kids love Disney's Yacht Club

If you've ever stayed at a Disney Resort, you know they have the most amazing pools, sandy-bottom pools. Some will tell you that Disney's Yacht Club Resort has the best pool of all of the Resorts. I'd have to agree that it's really awesome. 

Stormalong Bay Disney's Yacht Slub

Stormalong Bay is 3 acres of water wonderland and features a looonngg slide that is fun for all ages! In fact, you won't find a waterslide at a Disney resort that is higher than the one at the Yacht Club Resort.

Even Adults Enjoy Disney's Yacht Club Resort Pool

Even the biggest of kids love Stormalong Bay!

A few more fun perks to staying at Disney's Yacht Club Resort:
  • You're a five minute walk from Epcot or a short boat ride to Hollywood Studios. 
  • Beaches & Cream, the Ice Cream Parlor that is famous for The Kitchen Sink ice cream dessert is located at Stormalong Bay. 
  • Want to have an elegant dinner? Visit Yachtsman Steakhouse for a delicious meal after a long day at the parks.
  • There's a full-service gym located right on property for those of you who like to pump iron or jog along on a treadmill.
  • Take the kids down to the beach for a nightly Disney movie under the stars. 
  • Play tennis, volleyball, corn hole and more!
  • Run along the jogging path on the boardwalk each morning before the sun wakes up. 
  • And so much more!
Disney's Yacht Club Resort is now our favorite resort on Disney property. Next time you plan your family vacation to the Walt Disney World Resort I urge you to look into booking at the Yacht Club.

My family and I stayed at Disney's Yacht Club Resort while attending the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration. We were provided with discounted tickets and accommodations for our stay. We were not asked to provide this review. All opinions are our own.
