The Yacht Club at Disney World is in a prime location along the Boardwalk and just a short walk from Epcot. Here you will find rooms that can accommodate families of five and a 3 acre water park. After staying in so many different Disney hotels I can tell you that so far this is my favorite Disney Hotel! Four years later this is still my favorite regular hotel on Disney property. My favorite non-regular hotel on Disney property is Saratoga Springs

We loved staying here for multiple reasons, but the number one had to be the killer location. The Boardwalk is an awesome place to hang out and it's even more fun to stay right there.

From the Boardwalk you can walk into the back entrance of Epcot, which is incredibly convenient. You can also ride a boat over to Disney Studios from here.

I think from now on we will always stay in one of the hotels along the Boardwalk. Our room was nice and we had plenty of room. There was nothing particularly striking about the room we stayed in.

The best part of staying at a Disney Resort is the extra magic hours at the theme parks. It's nice to only be in the parks with other Disney hotel guests. The lines are much shorter and for the most part there are no lines.

The second best part of staying at this particular resort is the pool. There’s multiple pools, a lazy river, a large body slide coming off of a pirate ship, a beach, and more. You could just stay at this hotel and skip doing the theme parks if you wanted to. The pool will keep your kids busy all day, especially with all the activities cast members lead throughout the day out next to the pool.

There are only a few babysitting/kid’s clubs available around Disney World and one of them is here. The Sandcastle Club is from kids 3 to 12 years old and for a fee they can come in and  make crafts, play games, have dinner and snacks, watch Disney movies and make new friends while parents go do something else.

At night each night there is a Disney movie outside under the stars somewhere on the property, including down at the beach.
Also at night there is a campfire every other day for families to enjoy,

We had a regular room with two beds. Our room was nice, but I would rather have had a room with the couch. Since we did not get a room with a couch the resort provided a rollout bed. Yacht Club at Disney World

We almost had a view. I did not even think about asking for a room with a view. Next time I’ll ask. I’m positive that many of these rooms have amazing views of the Boardwalk and lake.

Other benefits of staying on Disney property:
  • Free self parking
  • Free Disney World transportation on boats, ferries, buses, and monorail.
  • Free wifi
  • Free airport transportation with the Disney Magical Express
Disclosure: I work with Disney one to two times a year. My room was provided by Disney while I attended a conference at this resort.
