Disney’s Yacht Club Resort Review

Disney Yacht Club HotelThis spring we took Kora & Logan down to Disney World and got a room at Disney’s Yacht Club Resort. The hotel was huge, unique, and very stately. We loved that it was right on the water and that we could see and even walk to the Boardwalk shops and restaurants.

The one thing to note about Disney’s Yacht Club Resort is that it is enormous! When we checked in and were directed to our room, we couldn’t believe how long the walk was. We went from one hallway to the next to the point it felt like we were walking around the World Showcase at Epcot. After that first experience we didn’t walk through the hotel very often, instead we used the sidewalks to cut diagonals across the lawn to save time. My advice would be upon check-in that if you have a lot of luggage utilize the bell hops. You will be thankful you saved yourself lugging the suitcases for as long as we did.

Once we found our room we were very pleased.

Disney World Yacht ClubThere was also the Disney attention to detail every where in the room. See the top of the mirror in the far away shot of the desk? It’s a hidden Mickey in the rope decor around the mirror.

Mickey could also be found in the bedspreads as well.

Disney's Yacht Club ReviewHow cute is that?!

I loved that the hotel melded two different themes together so well. It had the feel of a high end yacht club resort sprinkled with a little Disney magic.

We had a fantastic time at Disney’s Yacht Club Resort and enjoyed being able to walk into Epcot’s World Showcase whenever it was open. The resort was very family friendly and with the close distance to both Epcot and the Boardwalk there are lots of dining options and entertainment available in the area. Between the pools, the water slide, the beach, the Boardwalk, and the short walk to Epcot, there’s something for everyone.

Accommodations were included in the price of the Disney Social Media Moms conference ticket which we purchased ourselves. No compensation was provided. The honest opinions are my own and those of my family.

    When I worked in Disney as an Attractions hostess in Fantasyland, my roommate worked in Hotel & Guest Relations. I remember her coming back to our apartment and hoarding all the towels on living room floor as she learned to create different figure out of them. It was really cool. I learned to make a few as well. Disney hotels are one of the few that I know are clean.
