Inspired by traditional New England yacht clubs, Disney’s Yacht Club Resort is a ferryboat ride to Disney’s Hollywood Studios  and walking distance to the Epcot entrance. Sailors and landlubbers alike can take advantage of this waterfront resort, with its large pool, water slide, tennis courts, croquet lawn and marina with boats for rent. Beyond the French doors are lush, landscaped grounds and the resort’s dock on the 25-acre Crescent Lake.

Why we love it

It has an incredible pool area with something for everyone, from a lazy river to a fun slide suitable for both kids and adults. There’s even two quiet pools for those who maybe just want a quick dip to cool down, a relaxing sleep in the sun or the peace to read a good book. This hotel is also situated perfectly between Epcot and Disney’s BoardWalk meaning guests can easily walk to either in no more than 15 minutes.

Location

How can I get to Universal Studios from Disney’s Yacht Club Resort?

We would recommend a drive to get to the Universal parks as they are around 20 minutes by car. If you are not driving, you could use a taxi service such as Uber. Public transportation options are available but they can take much longer.

What Disney parks are the closest to Disney’s Yacht Club Resort?

Rides & Attractions

Can you see any fireworks from Disney’s Yacht Club Resort?

As Epcot is the closest park, you may see some of the fireworks if standing near the lighthouse area or by walking across to the Boardwalk. However, a lot of this show usually takes place at a lower level, so you are likely to not see it all. Of course, the ultimate viewing location is inside the park itself.

Accessibility

Are the pools at Disney’s Yacht Club Resort wheelchair accessible?

Yes! Stormalong Bay is wheelchair accessible because it has a zero entry design. This means guests can experience the sandy-bottomed main pool without needing to use a pool entry system. However, for the three other pools at the property, guests will need to make use of the chair pool entry system.

Voor een Disney liefhebber als ik ben was dit het paradijs op aarde. Wat een geweldig park. Mijn kleinkinderen hebben ook genoten. Toen wij de laatste dag op de boot stonden om naar de uitgang te gaan zei hij tegen zijn moeder: "Ik kan wel huilen mama dat wij nu weggaan" Wij zijn nu alweer een paar dagen thuis en hij zegt nog dagelijks dat hij heimwee heeft naar Disney.

Ook een superleuk park net als Hollywood Studios. Het nadeel van deze parken is dat zij niet zo groot zijn en er niet zo heel veel attracties zijn. Daardoor zijn er behoorlijk lange wachtrijen.
