The Disney Yacht Club is styled after a New England yacht club from the late 1800’s. The hotel has a nautical theme and is more formal than its sister resort, the Beach Club. The five-story high buildings are grey with white clapboard.  As expected on Disney property, the grounds are attractively landscaped. The elegant lobby is decorated with hardwood floors and brass fixtures. The theme is more subdued and not over-the-top like some other Disney resorts. The Yacht Club is a little quieter and calmer than the Beach Club.

The Yacht Club Disney has 621 rooms with a nautical theme.

The Disney Yacht Club is a lovely full service resort. Rooms are spacious and amenities are extensive at this resort. Location is one of the biggest perks of the resort providing access to Epcot, Disney Studios and the Disney Boardwalk. The Yacht Club is more adult-oriented than some other Disney hotels. Some may consider the hotel a bit stuffy. However, all Disney hotels are welcoming to children of all ages. The main downside to the Disney Yacht Club is the high cost. Expect to pay a premium for this excellent resort.
