Disney World’s Yacht Club Resort

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.Yacht Club Resort at Disney World

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.Yacht Club Resort Swimming Pool

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. 

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.

Get Travel Insurance

Unfortunately, there are a lot of things that can go wrong on any trip. Be prepared for the worst with travel insurance. We use Travelex or Safety Wing (often cheaper).

Book Flights

I use Skyscanner to find flights. I use it so much, I wrote an entire guide to finding cheap flights with Skyscanner!

Book a Place to Stay

I recommend using Expedia.com or Hotels.com for most hotel bookings. I prefer to book directly with Marriott when I stay there because of their excellent military discount.

If you prefer staying in a vacation rental instead, I recommend VRBO.

Rent Clothes

Rent clothes for your trip with Travel Style Expert for only $50 a month! The first 30 days are free!

Choose Activities and Tours

To find great activities in any area I use Get Your Guide and Viator. If we are visiting a city with lots of popular attractions I always check CityPass and GoCard to see if they have discount cards available. Groupon also tends to have a lot of local travel deals.

When I want to book a full-on multi-day tour I use TourRadar. They’ve got fantastic weekly deals. If I am going somewhere in Mexico or the Caribbean I use Apple Vacations.

Rent a Car or Take a Lyft

More often than not Lyft is cheaper than Uber. Use my Lyft link for an $18 credit! For a car rental in any country, I recommend Hertz or Discover Cars.

Save Money on Gas

Upside, a free app gets you cash back on gas! Use promo code RV2Q2 to get an extra 15¢/gal bonus on your first purchase.

Get a Visa

I use iVisa to get all of my Visas.
