Fabulous, though maid service can be spotty

We got a great rate at the Disney Yacht Club and found it was perfect for attending the Epcot Food & Wine Festival just a short walk away! Be sure to look for the quiet pool on the side of the hotel nearest to the Swan/Dolphin complex. I used the hot tub on both nights during my stay and had it all to myself. The hotel is beautiful and very comfortable. Downsides: We stayed two nights, and our room was never made up after the first night. Somehow, the maid service missed our room. Also, the toilet in the bathroom was on an odd 20-degree angle, apparently so that the door would close. Very challenging if you have OCD!

Great family vacation

The hotel is great for visiting epcot and Hollywood studios. the only draw back is getting to and from the Magic Kingdom. We were traveling with 3 little ones under 4 and having to use the bus with all the gear is bit of a challenge especially when you are leaving the park during a high traffic time. On two occasions we had to wait quit a bit before we could get on a buss with are two strollers and little ones. Other than that the whole experience was amazing and the pool was awesome if you have little kids.

Best Location for Epcot and Hollywod Studios

Great location for the 2 parks. Love the boardwalk area for the restaurants and easy access by foot or boat to the two parks.Animal and Magic Kingdoms a bus ride away. Nice hotel with nice size rooms. I think all rooms have a balcony which is nice. Refrigerator in room for snacks and drinks.The Yacht club is connected to the Beach Club and share all amenities including a great pirate ship waterslide-which the kids loved. We also took part in the nightly campfire where we toasted marshmallows. The only downside is that it is very expensive for what you are getting. All in all a nice comfortable place to stay.

Beautiful hotel

This hotel is my favorite disney hotel. It is impeccably decorated to make you feel like you're strolling through an old fashioned yacht club, with very few "mickeys" to remind you it's a disney hotel. It's in walking distance to the boardwalk, Epcot and Hollywood studios. These locations are also made available by the free friendship boat service that runs all day and night stopping at each park with the hotels along the way.

Nightlife tip: Short walk from hotel

Just around the corner on the boardwalk you can go to jellyrolls, the dueling piano bar, where you can request songs ranging from Frozen to Backstreet Boys and they will play it live on the pianos and other various instruments.

Rooms are very dated; good location for Epcot

Stayed 4 nights at The Yacht Club and was disappointed by the room. Decor was very dated and badly in need of an update. Daughter (late teens) commented on the phone in the bathroom...she has never seen one before. Rust, stains, uncomfortable bed and felt like we were staying in an elderly relative's house. Disney should downgrade this hotel until rooms are updated. We were very disappointed. Location was short walk to Epcot. Long bus ride to Magic Kingdom. Disney transportation was easy and convenient. Short walk to restaurants at Boardwalk and Swan hotel too.

Beautiful hotel... great location, great staff, love the lobby smell. I am pretty sure they pump it in through the AC. Awesome pool and slide but very crowded.

Yacht Club is Always A Good Choice

When staying at WDW, if you tend to spend time at, or just like the convenience of being near EPCOT and Boardwalk for restaurants and entertainment, Yacht Club is a solid choice. The staff is very sincere and helpful. While there are children at the resort, they are less in number than other WDW properties, including the sister hotel, Beach Club (have stayed there too). Amenities are good and room sizes are better than many at WDW. Check in staff always tries to accommodate my room preferences, including picturesque views and proximity to an elevator. I've stayed here a few times before and will stay again.

It was a bon voyage!

Great to stay at a Disney Hotel. Allows you to make 3 fastpass selections ahead of going to the park. This hotel is just a short walk to Epcot and a boat ride away from Hollywood. Great brunch at the Captains Grill in the lobby and a cute old fashioned ice cream shop, Beaches and Cream, in the Beach Club next door.

Truly magical time at Disney!

The hotel is in an amazing location - close to all of Disney properties. Transportation every 20 min by airconditioned bus, water taxi or walking. I loved the nautical theme, the staff were friendly and pleasant, the food was good. The gift shop and restaurants are a bit pricey, but the stay was truly unforgettable. We visited all of the Disney theme parks and water parks in our five days. I would definitely recommend the Yacht Club and would go again.

Don't miss dining at Beaches and Cream in the neighboring Beach Club when you have a hankering for ice cream! Kuzzina at the boardwalk has amazing Greek inspired cuisine.
