“Excellent Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2014

We just returned from 6 nights at the Yacht Club and we were very happy with out vacation. The pool is beyond amazing-there is a place for everyone in the family-lazy river, section for games, beach-like part for small children and great slide!
After reading some reviews on here where some feel like it was dated, I highly disagree. I am very critical of cleanliness of a hotel and I have to say that Yacht Club was extremely clean, our room was beautiful-big, bright and comfortable! The staff was super helpful and friendly.
If you are coming with young children the décor of the lobby is a little stuffy-but very close to the lighthouse to catch a boat. I like the location, you never feel like you are in a remote location. You are a quick walk from many things to do besides the parks. We took a walk to the Boardwalk across the lake and it was very fun-magicians, music, activity..very nice night. Bus service was outstanding....never waited more than 10 minutes for a bus.
I do have one negative and that is the quick service availability. There is no quick service in the Yacht Club...just a short walk to the Marketplace in the Beach Club but for a hotel that large, I find it hard to believe that Disney does not cater more to families and have more and bigger quick service places in a hotel this size. The refill station for resort mugs is also soo small...one outside at the pool and one in Beach Club..again so small of a spot. Except for this we were highly satisfied with our stay and would absolutely stay again! Thanks Yacht Club!!!

Room Tip: Ask for room close to lobby.

We just stayed 5 days at the Yacht Club and enjoyed the convenient location and the wonderful pools. As compared to the Beach Club, the Yacht Club is more updated, a little quieter, and has a very helpful friendly staff.

The Yacht Club is an easy 5 minute stroll from Epcot which makes it extremely convenient. It is also an easy stroll to the Boardwalk restaurants and shops. The staff was very friendly and courteous. Rooms were a little dated and the New England seaside theme is a little tacky. Easy access to other theme parks, water parks and Downtown Disney via bus or boat. The massive stormalong pool is probably the Yacht Club's best selling point as it was what sold us on the property.

Stayed here while planning to go to the Villains Unleashed event at Hollywood Studios. Checking in the staff was nice and made the process quick, accommodating our request to be near elevators. The pool is amazing and fun. This is one of my favorite hotels.

Happened to be there on business, just by myself. Hotel itself is absolutely nothing special, except for the price. The style and decor is certainly consistent with the name, but amenities are rather unimpressive. Food in the lobby cafe is standard as well, and overpriced beyond reason. As an adult on business, I felt somewhat annoyed by the need to carry around a Mickey bracelet, which served as a room key and a method of payment if I wanted a charge to be put on my room. Even more annoying was that the same bracelet, which was supposed to be accepted anywhere in the Disney World, did not allow me to charge to my room my lunch in the hotel next door. The location is close to boardwalk with a few interesting restaurants, which are overpriced and overcrowded, Cat Cora's restaurant (average price for dinner of $60 as reported by Disney web site) was booked all three days I was there, and I was wondering how the difficult economic times affected those families of 4-5 people who were dining there, paying $300 a night. When I attempted to book a dinner inside Epcot, I was told to buy a partial day (after 5PM) park ticket for a mere $59 just to get inside. I ended up driving to Celebration, and had couple of dinners at excellent restaurants for much less money and hussle. I am sure there are numerous places in the area where you can stay for much less and get much more. The only advantage of staying here is direct access to Epcot, but in my mind this does not justify the price and inconveniences.

We just got home last night after 5 nights at the Yacht Club. All I can say was it was great. My wife and I, 21 year old daughter and her boyfriend went, adjoining rooms. The rooms are very spacious and clean. I have seen where people are complaining about the size of the bathroom. It was fine with me you only use the bathroom or shower, why does it need to be larger? The double sinks and vanity are outside of it which is great. The balcony overlooking the pool was very nice also. The room had the best air conditioner of anywhere I had ever stayed, which was nice with it being so hot in mid August. We ate at The Yachtsman steakhouse, Cape May cafe on morning for breakfast, Beaches and Cream one lunch, Crews Cup Lounge late one evening, and a sandwich at Hurricane Hannahs. All were very very good. We have stayed at Wilderness Lodge, and the Polynesian before the Yacht Club is hands down our favorite. It seems to be as others have said more adult oriented maybe because of the convention center there. The pool area is amazing. The atmosphere of the whole complex is amazing. Walking around the boardwalk at night or just a 5 minute walk into the world showcase at Epcot, which is my favorite of all. I normally don't do reviews but had to after this stay

Room Tip: We were in rooms 4217 and 4219 overlooking the roof below, but could see the pool and the boardwald
