    The Best of Disney

    from

    The Disney Yacht Club is the best that Disney has to offer. The rooms, service and carefree proximity to EPCOT and MGM make this the best of all the resorts. The pool is fantastic with a good time for all in any age group. Having stayed at several Disny resorts, I would rank this as #1.

    If you love to be financially soaked and stand on line for everything and pay through your nose, this palce is for you

    from

    We have stayed in some very nice places but this hotel left a lot to be desired. The lobby is impressive and the room was larger that usual but there is no place to get dressed since the toilet and shower are squished into a very small room. The door hit the toilet everytime we closed or opened it. The girls got dressed in the closet. The toilet area could have been much cleaner, there was serious build up around the toilet and tiled areas. Anyway, the biggest problem we had was the major lack of conveniences offered. There were none. The lobby bar was permanently closed and the resturants were $80 plus tip for breakfast for four and we didn't even attempt the steakhouse in the hotel. It was so overpriced; $41 for filet mingon. This is not New York City, it Disneyworld. We couldn't find fruit or salad anywhere. Every resturant offered is ridiculously overpriced and the choices are limited to the same greasy foods. The icecream store was about 45 wait for and $8 sunday and the ice cream for the little kids wouldn't feed Barbie.If you find pizza it is $5.69 a slice, but it's round so they call it a "personal pie". You will be nickeled and dime to death. Wine is $8 to $15 a glass and they don't fill the glass either. They charge extra for everything. The other resturants on the property offer all the same greasy fare and we waited two to three hours sometimes to eat. Two nights we didn't have dinner because every place was crushed with people. Good thing I brought frosted mini wheats and triscuts for the plane ride. We spent $200 a day on bad food. I kid you not. I think the majority of the people staying at these expensive hotels are putting it on a company expense account. For the average family, stay at a nice place off the property and don't be held prisioner while disney is laughing all the way to the bank. The least they could do was offer a small cafe for coffe or tea and fruit or salads, etc. But no. It doesn't take long to figure that Disney's primary objective it to extract as much money from "guests" as possible, while giving the minimum in return. Stay elsewhere and don't go in the summer months.

    Human gridlock at the magic kingdom. Really... I was almost squished to death in front of "It's a Small World". I hope someone finds this useful and saves a few thousand dollars. Good luck.

    Beautiful hotel/Expensive Food!

    from

    A beautiful resort! Stayed here July 2003. Steps to Boardwalk shopping, steps to Epcot and boatride to MGM. 4 star resort with all amenities!

    Beaches N Cream is good for shakes(approx. $50 for burgers and shake for 4), ESPN at Boardwalk has reasonable and good food, and Cape May Cafe for breakfast! However, be prepared to spend $60 for 4 on buffet breakfast! (Don't order room service breakfast--little food/boxed hot chocoate w/water base) yuc. Pool bar not really meant for pool area...no drinking (even water) at poolside! Lifeguards are rude! No way to cool off when hot unless you sit far away from pool w/ beverage on lined-up loungers. Laundry has 1 operating washer in 1 location on huge property. Room was beautiful with lake view. However, table in room only seated 1 person for in-room dining. Service was excellent however throughout. Location of hotel was excellent and convenient to everything. However buses overcrowd and people are sometimes expected to stand for the ride back to hotel. Most restaurants throughout this resort and overall Disney are boxed frozen foods and way overpriced!!

    Lunch and dinner for 4 costs approx. $80-$100 each. Wish executives at Disney would re-evaluate the food fleecing!! However, nothing beats the Magic Kingdom. Get the Ultimate Park Hopper Package like we did and enjoy Disney before and after hours.

    Awesome Resort

    from

    Just returned home from a 5 night stay at the Yacht Club Resort. I must say that this resort is awesome! The rooms are very spacious, fits a family of 4 very comfortably. Our room was ready at 11:00 a.m. for check in. The pool is incredible. The slide is terrific and the smaller slide for younger children is great. The restaurant's are a bit pricey but food was good. Beaches and Cream was good and quick, prices weren't too bad. Bus service to Animal Kingdom and Magic Kingdom was excellent. We waited no longer than 5 minutes for a bus at the hotel or at the parks. Boat service to MGM and Epcot was excellent also. No more than a 5 minute wait. The grounds around the Yacht Club were beautiful. Everything was very close. Being able to walk to the Boardwalk at night was very convenient or you could take a boat. I was very impressed with the hotel and staff. Room was cleaned very well and was done within 3 hours after we left the room. I would definitely return to the Boardwalk. My family and I loved it. I thought that it would not be child friendly, but I was wrong. There were a lot of young couples there with little and not so little children. We felt right at home!

    Our Ship Finally Came In!

    from

    Wonderful time from the moment we stepped into the gracious lobby until we sadly left. Beautiful room, spacious balcony, and fast elevators. All staff were very friendly, helpful and had hints on getting the most out of our stay. Great time and worth the bucks. Grandkids loved it all!

    A First Class resort! Loved It

    Disney WorldÂ’s Yacht Club Resort

    Beautiful, Luxurious and Fun

    from

    This was an awesome hotel. The pool is the best feature- SAND BOTTOM! There is also fun waterslides, a lazy river, lots of hot tubs and the grounds and lobby are immaculate! It was beautiful.

    Its right on the water and my boyfriend and I took the water taxis over to the restaurants and bars across the way at the Boardwalk. Also very convenient to Epcot restaurants.

    The Yachtsman's Steakhouse on site is excellent- but VERY EXPENSIVE. We dropped $120 for two people on that one.

    We only went to Animal Kingdom and the water parks- as we are not big on waiting in lines in the heat - we come for the great hotels, restaurants, and golf. The hotel has enough to do that you don't have to leave.

    We stayed during the summer for 3 nights and the price was about $220 per night- yes it's steep- but if you want luxury you pay for it. It's definately worth it. Best hotel I have stayed in so far.

    Yacht Club Disappointing

    from

    Excellent valet. Extremely unresponsive housekeeping. Mediocre maintenance. One outstanding reception staff. Unhygenic gym. No connectivity to speak of. If you must be close to Epcot, try the Beach Club instead. Will never return.

    Stratospheric Price, Pleasant Accommodations, Great Staff!

    from

    Disney's Yacht Club Resort is definitely priced to attract well-heeled visitors to Disney

    World, and the level of service one receives there is truly excellent. If you get on a

    Concierge floor, service is sublime. The rooms are comfortable, impeccably clean and

    large, although for the money I expect a bit more luxury and character (furniture was

    Crowne Plaza caliber-- which is fine, but...). Still, if you have to go to Orlando and you

    want to spend the money, the Yacht Club is a very pleasant experience.

    WOW. For anyone who has been to Disney Land - Disney World is HUGE.

    Perhaps a bit too big.

    Getting around is fairly easy with boats, mono rail, buses.

    You can drive from one resort to another and park as well.

    Many resort hotels on site - we are right on a lake with ours and a short walk to Epcot.

    One of our favourite roller coasters was the Rockin' Roller Coaster. It was awesome!

    Dinner at Mama Melrose’s was another amazing meal. And of course, too many desserts to eat once again.

    After dinner, we went to get frightened at the Tower of Terror. Again, another amazing ride. Wow!

    We got off the ride and we were able to get another Fast Pass, which we got for Fanastmic, a light, ...

    ... rides and shows so we enjoyed one last day here.

    With another magical day behind us, we said a teary goodbye to this place that has bought us all so many happy memories. Memories that remind us of our inner child, the magic of imagination and as Walt Disney termed it imagineering. The thought and technology involved into making ones fantasies become reality for a brief moment will be cherished forever.

    We then went for another explore round the park before stopping for lunch (watch out for the birds trying to steal your food!) and then headed to the Sand Dollar Cabana to begin our second main event, the dolphin interaction and swim.
