Stayed here for Epcot food & wine festival last weekend. I have stayed at several disney resorts and find that I can only justify the price of the deluxe resorts because of the location. This "deluxe" resort is by no means luxrurious. Comfortable, yes. Well staffed, yes, but it lacks many ammenities of hotels in its price range. My husband was less […] than thrilled by the outdated thermostat and the sink that failed to drain. However, it is by far the easiest commute to Epcot, period. From the Yacht Club and the Beach Club, you can easily walk to the international gateway, which drops you right between France and England in the international showcase. Walking back to the hotel after the fireworks was amazingly quick. We were back in our room faster than we could have reached the Epcot parking lot. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The staff was wonderful from check in to room service. The only negative is getting a reservation for a meal in the hotel is very difficult, if you are able to research the restaurants prior to your arrival , please make a reservation then. They don't keep open tables.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
""Too busy to be accommodating""
This is a fantastic Disney Hotel. With that said, there are some issues which stopped me from rating the Hotel a 5. First, the pool is awesome BUT the food there is AWEFUL, $8.99 for 4 chicken nuggets and fries? The Shrimp and Lobster is nothing but a huge roll filled with lettuce with shrimp and scallop sprinkled on top. You cant even take a bite unless […] you totally remake the sandwich. The kids 83 year old Grandmother drove 60 minutes to see her grand kids and they would not let her in the pool area because she wasn't staying in the room and they were "too busy" to accommodate her. They told her to leave, i'm not kidding! Thank goodness someone in concierge saw this and helped her (told us not to tell), how sad is that! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Great hotel for families. 5 minute walk to back of Epcot and Main Street boardwalk. Movies on beach and several pools were terrific for kids and adults alike. Room not as requested from Hotels.com - the room we got was on a lower floor and had a day bed, rather than a sofa bed.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
my family and I had the best time of our lives at this beautiful Disney resort.We will love to go back next April but not room is available onlineGenuine Expedia guest review
"Convenient to Epcot, Clean&Quiet, Fabu Pool"
The rooms are very nice, very clean and the location can't be beat for access to Epcot. The staff is very very nice and helpful. The pool is so great for kids - it has slides and a beach type walk in for little ones.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beautiful Hotel, Fabulous Pools"
We had 14 family members stay here and we all agreed it was a terrific experience. The rooms are quiet and well appointed. The resort is convenient to walk to Epcot so you avoid waiting for the bus. The restaurant and coffee bar and great. The breakfast buffet was terrific and the Steakhouse was beyond words great. We would definitely stay there again. […] The staff was welcoming and very customer service oriented. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice, but you're paying for Epcot proximity"
We've stayed at Disney Wilderness House and Animal Kingdom Lodge. This hotel does not compare to the others mentioned. It doesn't have the dining set up the others do. The rooms are dated. I didn't feel like the Yacht Club has the Disney "magic" the others had. The proximity to Epcot and the Boardwalk, however, is wonderful. That is truly what you're […] paying for. Overall a lovely, hotel but not as fun and much more subdued compared to some of the other luxury resorts Disney offers. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Wonderful pools and family areas. The location is perfect for Epcot and Holywood Studios.The rooms and resort are beautiful and well maintained. All of the rooms have balcony views and are decorated nicely. This is our favorite Disney resort!Genuine Expedia guest review
love the location of yacht club, close to Epcot, close to Boardwalk, great pool and nice hotel, would definitely stay there againGenuine Expedia guest review
"Overpriced rooms great pool"
Disney is known for it's attention to detail but these rooms need to be updated.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Elegant and comfortable."
We loved our stay. The location is great. Walking distance to Epcot and the Studios. The Yacht Club has a simple elegance about it. But it also feels very comfortable. Like a place you have been to before. Will go back again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Best location for Epcot visit"
Absolutely love all the hotels on this part of the Disney property. The Yacht club is beautiful and is lovely to stay at even not going to Disney. But it has a nice back entrance to Epcot that many don't know about. Much easier to go through the main gate.Genuine Expedia guest review
The Yacht club is a beautiful resort with great accomodations. Most of the staff is friendly and helpful. The location of my room was dreadful with a horrible view of a swamp so if you book there let them know in advance you dont want the swamp view.Genuine Expedia guest review
Great and very upscale. Would reccommend it to families that are rich and want to get away from the lower classGenuine Expedia guest review
Was extremely disappointed in our stay. Too many personal questions were required at check-in. Decking around pool (adult) did not have cool decking, which then burned the soles of our feet. Adult pool had young children, whereas sign stated under 12 needed supervision. Price was very high considering no continental breakfast.Genuine Expedia guest review
"good Disney location"
hotel location is ideal for walking to EPCOT and either walking or taking a boat to Hollywood Studios. Room is comfortable but simple.Genuine Expedia guest review
"It's Disney World"
Great place to hang out in the sun and relax with the kids by the pools and hot tubs. Super convenient to Epcot and Hollywood Studios. Great dining there or walking distance. Ready to make it one of our new favorite places to stay!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Convenient to all Disney attractions."
Excellent location. Hotel staff was very accommodating and friendly. Housekeeping was the best we experienced in a long time. Also stayed at the Animal Kingdom Lodge and would highly recommend either hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not What It Used To Be"
The hotel itself is still very very pretty but the rooms are aging badly. Our room had peeling wallpaper, a TV that was set in a frame on the wall that was far to big so it seemed to hang in the middle with all the wires hanging out and the bathroom had peeling paint. Not really what you would expect from a "luxury" hotel or Disney for that matter.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Yacht Club vs. Wilderness Lodge"
We've stayed many times at the Wilderness Lodge, and wanted to try something different this trip. Since we tend to spend lots of our time at restaurants in the World Showcase, we chose the Yacht Club. Check-in was quick, room was clean, and the location was great! Our room at the Yacht Club was brighter than those we've stayed at in Wilderness, not […] only because of the white furniture vs. mission-style wood, but also, there are literally MORE LIGHTS in the room! (is it strange that I noticed that?) We stayed during a busy time in April, but our room was super-quiet and the beds were comfortable. I enjoyed the restaurant and lounge options within our hotel, though you have to head to the nearby Beach Club to get a counter service meal...and that was frustrating when you just want a quick snack. We've always enjoyed the convenience of Roaring Fork at Wilderness for a quick breakfast or late-night treat. The pool area at Wilderness is also a favorite. At the Yacht Club, you get the unique sand-bottom pool, along with a lazy river, but again, you're sharing with the Beach Club next door, so you have double the crowd. While I would stay here again, I can't say I preferred it to Wilderness. I feel like the Wilderness experience is a little more upscale, while the Yacht Club was a little more old-school retro. My husband - an outdoorsy guy who loves mission-style decor, preferred the Yacht Club! I really don't think you can go wrong with either resort - seriously, it's Disney!

Great hotel very convenient to amusements. Ate at the hotel twice a little disappointing. Just because you pay a Lot for food doesn't always mean it' superb. Very nice staff treat you very well. There was mold around the sink stopper and they need to take a tooth brush to that area. For what I paid everything should be over the top. Had a nice time […] and transportation was great.

Beautiful hotel. Great staff. Checked in a bit early with no problem. Love their express check-out option. Beautiful pool! Kids or no kids, must enjoy the pool. Beautiful scenery for all rooms.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Overall Wonderful Experience, Needs Fine Tuning"
The staff is wonderful. Thank you Chip for giving us great recommendations and helping us navigate all that is Disney. The location is perfect for going to Epcot and the pool is wonderful. I highly recommend the breakfast buffet. It was delightful. My only issue is with the little finishing touches within the room itself. My husband calls me a hotel […] snob, and he is right. I enjoy staying at the Four Seasons, Ritz, etc. So, I notice when there is rust on the sprinkler system, door handles that are very old and dated, and clumps of dust in the air/fan systems. These are simply fixes that don't cost much and should be done, especially for what you are paying per night. Come on Disney, you are better than that. Overall, however, I would definitely recommend and will stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Location and Pool"
We stayed at Disney a decade ago at the Port Orleans and took a boat ride to the Board Walk and passed this hotel/pirate ship. I've wanted to stay there ever since.... the pirate ship with water slide looked so cool. Also the sand in the pool and beach front were great. We had a ground floor room which was very comfortable for our family. We were able […] to view the fireworks at Epcot from our patio every night, a fun perk. The location of this property is ideal. You could walk to Epcot (France) each morning for pastries and coffee each day. I was fun to walk to the Board Walk and watch the performers in the evening. The magic bands are AWESOME! loved the ability to book fast passes, lunch/dinner reservation, charge everything to a secured card. Great way to keep track of expenses, we didn't buy a meal plan this time. I took the advise of a friend and placed a grocery order that was delivered to our hotel the day of our arrival. It worked very well, and was worth the effort. There is a small refrig in the room. If you ask for a microwave they will bring one down to your room. It was great to be able to buy apples, oatmeal, cereal, milk, juice, coke zero, gatorade, granola bars, etc waiting for us. Staff was very helpful, Amanda was able to arrange for us to stay in the same room after I figured out we arrived a day earlier than my original reservation. Huge help not to transfer rooms.

WE loved our stay at the Disney Yacht Club. Though we had a couple of glitches with concierge and the t.v., the staff and hotel made sure we where taken care of promptly. The pool area was the best! That is why we choose it over the other hotels. If you have kids, the pool and water slide will be perfect. Would stay again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good place to stay for EPCOT and HOLLYWOOD STUDIOS"
The Hotel staff was wonderful including the boat transportation to EPCOT and Hollywood studios. It took 1.5 hours to get to the Luau at the Polynesian. You have to take the bus to Downtown Disney, switch to another to the resort. The Boardwalk has a great bakery, salads, desserts, croissants. The ESPN restaurant was nice for a beer and appetizer. Read […] the brochures in the room about transportation, if you have time take the bus if you don't use your car. With the construction at Downtown Disney take the BUS! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The Yacht Club is still the best property on site for adults although it is starting to show its age and needs some room upgrades for the décor and bathroom fixtures. The new Disney Magic Bands were a little confusing at first but made restaurant reservations and fast passes a breeze.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Pricey but nice"
Glad I did not pay full price, not worth $500 a night. Location and pools were great. Enjoyed the cocktails and breakfast but that is only available to select guests.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great location for Epcot. You can walk to the entrance if you wish or take a short boat ride. Smaller venue for Disney but very elegant. Our room was on the concierge floor, overlooking the lake. Great! Highly recommend this hotel. Only negative (a small one for us) is that if you are into fine dining Disney is not the place.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent family hotel convenient clean and great"
Wonderful vacation and location was great next to Epcot back entrance.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Don't waste your money! Not worth the cost!"
For the exhorbitant cost of the room we expected MUCH more. Room smelled musty, bed uncomfortable. TV tiny and old. Food at all the restaurants the SAME!!! And it was not tasty!!! Stay at the Swan or Dolphin for less than half the price. Oh yes, we had to go to the Dolphin for a decent steak dinner because Yacht clubs steakhouse wouldn't let us dine […] without a reservation. Very dissappointed!!!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent hotel, great location"
We love staying at the Yacht Club. It is a beautiful hotel and you can't beat the location next to Epcot and the boardwalk restaurants. Great pool too!Genuine Expedia guest review
We were at the hotel for a convention/meeting. We were quoted one price but billed twice as much for the room. After many discussions with several hotel staff no reduction was made. I will urge the Mayo Clinic not to use Disney againGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"I've found my forever Disney home!"
The Yacht Club was first rate. The rooms are beautiful and quiet, which is a big deal for people that are light sleepers and don't sleep well in noisy hotels. There were times I thought I was the only person there so it is nice that there are 20 million kids running around (sorry parents!!) The walk to EPCOT is great and you can hit the Disney Boardwalk […] when the fireworks are done. But the best part is the staff. From the check in folks to the concierge, they took care of a glitch with my Disney bracelet linking to my mydisneyexperience account. Even comped me some fast passes for the time it took to fix it.

Great property, waking distance from Epoct's international gateway and Disney Hollywood studios.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Fantastic hotel! I highly recommend it!"
The hotel is great. The sand bottom pool, water slide, whirlpool, multiple hot tubs and beach are more than worth the price paid.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great sand bottom pool and great location"
The Yacht Club Resort is a great place to stay for foodies like us. The onsite restaurants are good and you can take a stroll over to the Boardwalk or into EPCOT(assuming you have passes) for a variety of great foods. You don't have to leave the hotel to relax and enjoy yourself. If you're looking for the perfect easy going experience, grab a drink […] and truffle fries at the Crew's Cup. The giant sand bottom pool is great to hang out at and has lots of room for everyone of all ages. The rooms are very comfortable and overall the hotel's ambiance makes it difficult to go anywhere else. Definitely our favorite Disney hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Beautiful, clean, pool crowded, needs more maids"
The front desk & concierge staff were AWESOME! Rooms clean, beds ok, pool nice but too crowded. Couldnt go in the pool, there really wasn't any room so we just went down the slide a couple of times. People put towels on the chairs to reserve them so in the afternoon it is impossible to get a chair. I heard that they do a sweep of the chairs if they […] don't think they were being used for a period of time, but i didn't see that. There were so many chairs with only hotel towels on them, no shoes or other belongings. I feel that if there are no belongings but only a hotel towel, the pool staff should clear the chairs. One of the reasons we chose this hotel is because of the pool & we didnt even get to use it. The rooms were very clean but our room wasnt done till aprx 4pm each day. We left every day 1st thing in the a.m, came back at noon & again at 4pm & still wasnt done. We spoke to a manager & she noted to have our room done in the a.m. & after that it was done in the a.m. Its not the maid that was the problem, its a huge hotel & I don't think there is enough maid staff. Disney should have a sufficient amount of maids to have the rooms done in a reasonable amount of time. They should update the safe to keyless. We had the trial magical bracelets which were great & so convenient, you dont have to carry anything when you wear the bracelet but the safe still NEEDS A KEY. I hope they change the fastpass to more than 3 fastpasses & doesn't limit it to 1park. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Charming and convenient for Disney trip"
My friend and I stayed at the yacht club for a quick three day trip to Orlando at the end of August. We didn't want to be bothered renting a car, and with the Disney magic express and resort-wide transportation, we didn't need to. The yacht club itself was very quaint and charming, and the concierge couldn't have been more helpful- they gave us magic […] bands that allowed us to set up four fast passes in advance, enabling us to get all of the major attractions in the magic kingdom done in the course of a few hours. There were cabs lined up outside the hotel in the morning, which made it easy to get to universal studios. The pool was fun and the hotels proximity to the boardwalk and world showcase at epcot made it a great location for young-adults. Cant beat staying on premises at Disney, and I'd definitely stay here again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Great Hotel- clean, and close to Epcot. Restaurants are pricey but food was good.Genuine Expedia guest review
Room was fine. For the price of the room, I expected a little more. Hotel convenient to area attractions (walking) On the other hand, the staff was exceptional.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Top Notch with a few reservations"
I have stayed in the Epcot resort area several times, but this was our first stay at the Yacht Club. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The area is very convenient for the Boardwalk, Epcot, Fantasia golf, and Hollywood Studios. My cautions for others- I marked I wanted two rooms with a king bed in each. We received a handicap accessible one queen […] bed room and a two queen bed rooms. If you are bringing children which we were not--it isn't "Disney"-like. It could have been any very nice hotel in any place. Last point- Buses to Downtown Disney included four resort stops. They are crowded and the rides are longer than you might be expecting.

We really enjoyed our stay. The room was very nice and clean. The staff was helpful and friendly, just as you would expect from Disney.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Comfortable but appalling Internet"
This is a comfortable hotel well situated for Epcot and conferences at it and adjacent Disney hotels. I was there for a conference, and paying almost $500 a night. I've spent hundreds of nights in hotels, and this was the worst Internet access I've ever encountered. The connection to the wireless router was strong, but the bandwidth available from […] the router to the Internet was almost nonexistent. Most of the time, webpages failed to load at all because the browser timed out waiting for an Internet connection that was beyond awful. The front desk referred me to a support team, which told me that this is normal and that if I want useful connectivity I need to go to the lobby because the room connectivity is shared widely. I called back to the front desk, explained the situation, and asked to speak to a manager about the Internet connectivity. I never got a call back from the manager. One time room service, which was wuoted as taking 35 minutes, took an hour 15 minutes to arrive. Given the lack of Internet connectivity, this is a wholly inappropriate place to stay on business. For a family vacation where you want it to be impossible to go online, I'm sure it's fine. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Convenient location, awesome pools"
Antonio at check in was (as was all the Yacht Club staff we dealt with) so friendly . He knows his Disney and helped get our vacation started on the right track. He was awesome. The king room was perfect and had a nice water view. We got to watch the boats come in & out and one night we watched the Epcot fireworks from our balcony. We stayed on the […] fourth floor and our room had plenty of storage space and was immaculate when we returned each night. Traveling to Disney several times now; once again we felt food and bottled water in the hotel & parks were extremely overpriced. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
From the minute we arrived, we knew we were in for a special treat for our staycation. Our stay was very relaxing and every amenity we could hope for was easily accessible to us (2 adults, 2 school age children).Genuine Expedia guest review
"very relaxing and memorable stay"
Really can't complain about service and hospitality, exactly what you would expect from Disney, and is why we always come back!! The grounds were beautiful and the lobby was very inviting and attractive. However, for a 4 diamond facility I found it rather tired in several areas. The rooms decor needs updating badly, however the vanity area and bathroom […] (minus the wallpaper) are classic and really don't date themselves. The towels although plentiful and clean are worn, beat-up, and rough. The bed linens are very simple (that's ok) but the quality is very poor and the beds are very hard. I have stayed at chain hotels with much better beds (sleep number beds) and higher thread count sheets. My only reason for saying this is because it is DISNEY and a 4 diamond resort and I know Disney takes every criticism to heart and uses them for improvement. We had a great time and would do it all over again for the experience. Also, the food was really good and consistent, but you better have reservations or you are not eating.... A little side note; Beaches and Cream is a great little ice cream parlor, but unfortunately could not eat there on this vacation (tried three different times) because it was so very busy. Maybe Disney should open up a separate location (for just the summer months) for quick order items and ice cream selections so they don't lose customers? Maybe pool-side?
