Sharing many amenities with its sister, Disney’s Beach Club Resort, Disney’s Yacht Club Resort is walking distance to Epcot and a convenient boat ride to Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Those are just some of the great reasons to stay at Yacht Club, but let’s go over the top 5!

Dining Options

Disney’s Yacht Club features some of the best restaurants at Disney World. Yachtsman Steakhouse is said to have some of the best steaks on property and Cape May Cafe offers a fantastic character dining experience! You’ll also find comfort food and seafood at the newer Ale & Compass Restaurant and Beaches and Cream Soda Shop is the only place you can get a Kitchen Sink ice cream sundae! You can’t go wrong dining at any of the restaurants at Disney’s Yacht Club.


The Yacht Club is located in the Epcot Resort area. It is within an easy walking distance to Epcot and just a boat ride away from Disney’s Hollywood Studios. You could even walk to Epcot and take the monorail over to Magic Kingdom. The resort is also right next to two other Disney World Resort hotels: Disney’s Beach Club and Disney’s Boardwalk. This gives guests easy access to dining and shopping experiences at those resorts as well!

Stormalong Bay

If you like to swim or relax by the pool on vacation, then you’ll want to check out Stormalong Bay! Stormalong Bay is a 750,000-gallon, beachside wonderland that offers 3 acres of aquatic fun.

Then, feel your cares melt away as you soak up the sun’s golden rays atop an elevated tanning deck, or simply escape to one of 3 whirlpool spas.
