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.

From January 2025 through May 2025, Stormalong Bay and Shipwreck Pool at Disney’s Yacht and Beach Club Resorts will be closed for routine maintenance. Guests may see or hear construction work during daytime hours. During this time, Guests are welcome to swim at the Tidal, Admiral and Dunes Cove leisure pools.

    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.

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.
