This month’s Walt Disney World Travel Examiner resort topic will feature Disney’s Yacht and Beach Club Resorts. This New England-style yacht club is located on the shores of Crescent Lake, is walking distance to Epcot and just a boat ride to Disney’s Hollywood Studios. The entire resort, inside and out, is filled with nautical décor and everything from recreation to shopping and dining to accommodations are themed just the same.
Disney’s Yacht and Beach Club is home to Stormalong Bay, the only sand bottom pool at the Walt Disney World Resorts. This water recreation area covers three acres and includes a life-seized replica of a shipwreck, which holds the highest resort waterslide at Disney World. Guest not looking for a lot of action can find some peace and quiet at one of the three quiet pools, each complete with whirlpool spas.
Kids can have fun with other pint-sized vacationers at Sandcastle Club, which is designed just for kids ages 3-12. Kids will be able to enjoy dinner with a snack, play games, make crafts, meet new friends and watch Disney movies, all while mom and dad are enjoying time alone.
Dining venues at Disney’s Yacht and Beach Club include the Yachtsman Steakhouse, Beaches and Cream Soda Shop, Cape May Café, Captain’s Grille, Ale and Compass Lounge, Crew’s Cup Lounge, Martha’s Vineyard, Beach Club Marketplace, Hurricane Hanna’s Grill and 24-hour room service.
Other resort amenities include the Ship Shape Health Club, a business center, childcare services, banking services, complimentary Wi-Fi Internet, laundry and dry cleaning services.
Disney bus transportation is available from Disney’s Yacht and Beach Club to all four of the Disney theme parks - Epcot, Magic Kingdom, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Disney’s Animal Kingdom - both water parks - Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach - and Downtown Disney.
