Disney's Yacht Club Resort
Travel Blogs from Orlando
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.
... The best part was the new Harry Potter ride which was a rollercoaster plus props plus huge 3D screen - all I can say was that it was fantastic. Even James loved it and he doesn't even really like rides, I usually have to drag him on to them. It was so good we went on twice. Unfortunately we couldn’t use our fastpass tickets for this ride and so had to queue for about an hour for it but it was definitely well worth it. However we didn't have to queue the second time (Bonus) ...
... met Snow White, Aurora, Jasmine and Ariel, they were all great and happy to pose for as many pics as we wanted, they all interacted with the kids and were all pretty believable. After we had eaten so much we could hardly move, we left, compete with a princess wand and a wishing star and our Cinderella photo that was taken when we arrived. The whole experience took around an hour. For anyone travelling with a little girl this is an awesome experience, it's not ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Disney's Yacht Club Resort Orlando
The Best of Disney
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
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.
A beautiful resort! Stayed here July 2003. Steps to Boardwalk shopping, steps to Epcot and boatride to MGM. 4 star resort with all amenities!
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!
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
I came here not knowing what to expect. I read reviews and talked to people who have stayed at this resort before and only heard GREAT things about it. Man were they right!!!! I loved it..the service is outstanding...great location...perfect rooms...outstanding marble in bathroom...we stayed in a king size bed room ...every room has a balcony...can't say enough bout the hotel..esp good things =)..only bad thing is..not that much to eat late nite (e.g. 1AM or later) other than ordering pizza or room service...email me if you have any questions or just want to talk about this resort..i came here for a convention for Best Buy...I left as a BIG fan of the resort....

Disney WorldÂ’s Yacht Club Resort
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.
Yacht Club Disappointing
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!
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.
