Disney's Yacht Club Resort Review

I may have a small bias previously working at this resort, but it is one of my absolute favorites on Disney property. I had the opportunity to stay here during my most recent trip to Walt Disney World. I was attending a conference that was taking place at the Yacht Clubs conference center. I jumped on the opportunity to stay at my favorite place since we had a discount on rooms. Even with a discount, the price was about $313 a night. This resort is considered one of the more adult friendly resorts, but families will enjoy staying here as well.

The Yacht Club is a Deluxe category resort, meaning it is one of the most expensive. Standard rates start at $420 a night, which is very pricey for a hotel in my opinion (poor college student here). It is located in the EPCOT resort area. You are able to walk into the International Gateway entrance of EPCOT and take a 15 minute boat ride to Hollywood Studios. It is going under a small refurb currently with rooms and some food options. They are in the process of adding another quick service food location, expanding the coffee bar area, and shrinking the Captain's Grille.
 

The resort is themed New-England yacht club style, it is one of the most beautiful interiors at a Disney resort. It hosts the best pool of any Disney property, Stormalong Bay. There are many food options available at the resort and at its sister resort, the Beach Club. I was booked in a Garden View room. The darling cast member who checked me in made sure to pick the best room available for me. I ended up on the second floor with a wonderful view. The room had 2 queen beds and a couch that can fit another person. Here are some pictures of the room for your reference.

I didn’t end up in a refurbishment room, but I didn’t mind because this resort really is wonderful as is. Have you ever had the chance to stay here? What did you think?
