There were definitely some issues with this hotel. We have two small toddlers who still take naps in the afternoon. Our first day, we were at a theme park for about 5-6 hours. We came back around 3 and the room was not clean. The 2nd day, we specifically called the front desk and asked for our room to be cleaned early. the woman at the front desk said it would be done immediately. We came back at 5 pm, and the room was still not cleaned. We had no privacy sign at the door. The location was fantastic. However, the decor inside of the hotel didn't really have a "disney" feel. I don't think it was worth the price.

This resort made our anniversary extra special! When we got there to check in, they had given us a "magical upgrade" to a nicer room on the first floor with a water view. Everyone there was always very nice and helpful. Our room along with the rest of the resort was VERY clean! The pool is WONDERFUL! It is has a sand bottom, a lazy river, and a huge waterslide!
There is a ferry boat that can take you to either Epcot or Hollywood Studios. The ferry also stops to pick up passengers at the Boardwalk resort...which is right across the water. The captain of the ferry was also very nice and alot of times funny.
We will be going back to this resort for sure!!! :)

We stayed at the Yacht Club in June of 2011. What a beautiful hotel! The staff was extremely accomodating. The man who cleaned our room each day always had a surprise waiting for our kids. The pool was phenomenal. Something to keep every age satisfied there from the water slide for older kids to the sandy area for our three year old. The rooms were not huge, but were very clean. Lots of nice Disney touches. Bathrooms look like they are soon ready for some updating. Our favorite part of the resort was the convenience. The 5-10 walk to Epcot and 10 minute boat ride to Hollywood Studios was fantastic. More time in the parks and less on the buses. Overall, it was a wonderful experience.

We took the "Magical Express" which included Airport to hotel delivery of luggage. It was raining outside and they left the bags in the rain. The bags came to the room with the clothing and other contents all wet. I am still awaiting the return call to my room. It was supposed to be a quick return call and it's now going on 2 hours! Here I am with my three kids waiting to go to the park; but, instead I am sitting in my room awaiting my lost luggage and rectification of our wet formerly clean clothes! Just PLEASE Disney...do something good!!!

Attending a three day conference, our Corporation chose the Disney Yacht Club Resort. The people were extremely friendly, the rooms were clean and spacious.The bedding was extremely comfortable, with delicious pillows! Room service was excellent and entertaining with their towel creations! The bathroom featured a vanity area with dual sinks and a seperate toilet area with a tub/shower. Water pressure was excellent in the shower! The Lobby area was spacious with an ajoining bar. The decor was of a nautical theme, with rich wood and beautiful decor appointments. Transportation was convienient with cast member assistance everywhere to lend advice. The conference facility was beautiful and staffed well. The refreshments at each break were plentiful and comprehensive.
The sand bottom pool is a real treat. The kids area had plenty of entertainment with activities, or you can nestle in away to a quieter area as well. Oh yes, there is a lazy river too!
If you have ever had a Disney experience, you know how much they exceed your expextations. The Yacht Club Resort stays true to that Disney Experience. We had a Magical stay!

My husband and I stayed here for our 10th wedding anniversary. We both loved it; we had requested a king bed and got it, the room was on the first floor and right by the quiet pool; and down the hall from the gift shop, very convienant...I thought it would be noisey..but it was very quiet and room was clean...no problems...everyone on staff was very nice. We did eat at the yachtsmen steak house...very good ..and I thought the breakfast at cape may cafe was good as well for a buffet...beaches and cream was awsome...not bad prices. There is so many activities to do...that you will never be bored...the pools are fantastic...enjoyed both...the movies under the stars was nice and relaxing after a long hot day at the parks...all and all it was perfect for us...so close to the parks...everything right at your hand...we are coming back to this hotel...we stayed at the boarwalk, contemporary, and port new orleans...all nice...but this one was perfect...!!!!

The location is wonderful, the hotel, just ok. I would expect more for the price. To me it seemed like it needed updated. The wallpaper reminded me of something you would find in a house in the early 90's and the bathrooms were tiny. The pool was great for the kids, the sandbottom kids pool was perfect for small kids and it was great that there is no height requirement for the slide. I was dissapointed there was no free intrenet access, and if you do pay the $10/day you still can't get wifi, you have to plug in! We also needed to print a document while we were there and we were going to be charged per minute for the internet and $1/page to print. We were dissapointed that this hotel, which has a large conference center, didn't help us, but tried to find another way to charge us. When we were ready to leave my husband went downstairs to get a cart for our luggage and was told guests aren't allowed to use them, we'd have to get a bellman. I was also dissapointed that we seemed to walk to the beach club for everything...next time i'll save a few steps and just stay there! last there was no "quick" food other than by the pool, which didn't open until lunch, but there was a small one at the beach club. we walked across to the board walk hotel and ate at the bakery which was good. My 6 year old said she would rather stay at pop centry next time! If i was doing a true disney vacation and going to parks every day, i would not stay here. If i was doing a more relaxed vacation, i would consider staying at the beach club, not the yacht club.


Pros:
location, location, location
the pool was great for kids
balcony was great

Cons:
nothing is free!
no quick breakfast/food
small bathrooms
bus stops at several other hotels, takes a long time to get to destination
no wifi (i think motel 6 offers wifi!)
walk to beach club all the time

Room Tip: book in advance, had a hard time finding a hotel!
