FROG FAMILY REVIEW
Disney's Yacht Club Resort*

What we love


  • Quieter than nearby Beach Club; yacht club theming makes this a favorite among couples and honeymooners
  • One of the smallest resorts on properties, with 630 rooms
  • Some of the most elegant rooms on property, with tasteful, blue nautical theming
  • Stormalong Bay is our favorite pool on property — more like a water park!
  • Terrific location; just a few minutes' walk or boat ride to Epcot® and centrally located to the rest of the parks
  • Minutes' walk from terrific restaurants in Disney's BoardWalk Entertainment District
  • Terrific breakfast buffet at Ale & Compass Restaurant
  • Many standard rooms can accommodate 5 guests
  • Character breakfast with beach Goofy and friends at Cape May Cafe
  • Free parking!

Keep in Mind

  • Hotel charges $33 per night (sales tax included) for valet parking
  • Only registered guests are allowed to use Stormalong Bay
  • Resort shares amenities with Disney's Beach Club Resort
  • Shares bus service to Magic Kingdom® Park and Disney's Animal Kingdom® Theme Park
  • Shares convention space with Disney's Beach Club Resort
  • Maze-like corridors leading to rooms can be confusing, and the walk can be quite far
  • Water-view rooms can be either of Crescent Bay Lake or the Stormalong Bay pool area

Notable Facts

  • There are several sections to the 3-acre Stormalong Bay, including a lazy river, waterslide, hot tubs and sandy-bottomed pool
  • Disney's Yacht Club Resort is one of the only resorts to offer tennis courts

Frog Family Tips

  • Try to get a reservation for Beaches & Cream Soda Shop or plan for a long wait during busy times
  • Order the Kitchen Sink at the '50s-style soda fountain Beaches & Cream Soda Shop — 8 scoops of ice cream smothered in every topping — perfect for sharing
  • Unless having a water view of any kind is a priority, we don't recommend booking it
  • Request a room near the lobby if you don't want to do a lot of walking
  • Some rooms have full balconies and juliet balconies; request a full balcony if it's a priority (not all requests are guaranteed)
  • Hop over to the International Gateway at EPCOT, just a short stroll away, to ride the Disney Skyliner and get a bird's-eye view of the park

Best For

  • Families and couples,  especially those who love water parks and want to be closer to Epcot® and the Disney's BoardWalk Entertainment District

General Walt Disney World® Resort Benefits

Staying on-site at an Official Walt Disney World® Hotel gives you several great complimentary benefits, including free transportation and more. 

The Frog Family absolutely loves staying on-site not just for the fun themes and Disney atmosphere of the hotels, but also for the convenient amenities. Some of the other complimentary benefits include:

  • Convenient Proximity - You can easily go back to your hotel from the parks if you need a break or want to relax at the pool. It's just as easy to head back to the parks after relaxing at your hotel for a couple of hours.
  • Free Park Transportation - Overnight self-parking at the hotel is free and depending on which Official Walt Disney World® Hotel you stay at, you'll have access to the Disney Skyliner, monorails, water launch and/or bus transportation. Many of the Official Walt Disney World® Hotels are also within walking distance to the parks and other resorts.
  • Early Access to Dining Reservations - Disney Resort guests can make Advance Dining Reservations (ADRs) for their entire vacation 60 days in advance, giving them the earliest access to the most popular restaurants such as Cinderella's Royal Table and Be Our Guest.
  • Free Wi-Fi - When staying on-site, you'll have access to complimentary wi-fi, available in your room and select public areas, such as the pools, arcades, restaurants and more.
  • Recreation and Fitness Activities - Disney Resort hotels offer a variety of wellness activities through Disney Family Wellness. Some favorites include dancing to Disney songs, family fun walks and, yes, even pickleball!
  • Travel Light with MagicBands - Guests of Official Walt Disney World® Hotels can check out MagicBands that let them into the theme parks, unlock their Disney Resort hotel room, link Disney PhotoPass photos, make purchases and more – just with a tap of their band! Disney Resort hotel guests also have the option to purchase a MagicBand+ at a special discount before they arrive for their stay, allowing them to be an interactive part of the magic.
