Here’s the Beef!


If you’re wondering where the best steak dinner is located in Walt Disney World (“WDW”), well I’m here to tell you it’s at the Yachtsman steakhouse in the Yacht Club Resort.  The Yachtsman is one of my favorite restaurants to eat at when I visit WDW, and for me it’s a must-do when I go. 

The Yachtsman has the ambiance, charm and décor of an old-world New York steakhouse with service and food to match. The restaurant is a Signature Dining location and as such has a resort casual dress code to enhance the dining experience for all of the guests.  The steaks and side dishes served here rival the best steakhouses in New York, such as Smith & Wolensky’s, Sparks and the Post House.  As you walk into the restaurant, there is a small glass room where the beef ages and develops flavor and tenderness.  Sometimes you will even see one of the chefs slicing the steaks.  On the way to the seating area, you will pass the open kitchen where they grill your steak and prepare several of the side dishes.  Be sure to take notice of the dessert display on your right side just before entering the main dining room, and save enough room for a treat at the end of your meal!


Now, no steakhouse dinner would be complete without having the vanilla bean crème brûlée for dessert.  It is made exactly how crème brûlée should be – warm custard with a hard caramelized sugar coating that you have to crack with a spoon.  It is so good that I won’t share, and if anyone else’s spoon tries to travel in the direction of my dessert, they are immediately told they need to get their own!  There are many other good desserts on the menu that I have tasted with my travelling spoon, but for me there is never any question that I’ll be ordering the crème brûlée.

My favorite things to eat here are the Caesar salad and the filet mignon.  Sometimes I order mashed potatoes, and other times I order a potato side dish that might be paired with a different steak on the menu.  Yes, they do let you switch menu items around without a problem, which is a good thing for me since I’m such a picky eater.  In fact, you can do this at most of the Disney restaurants.  The Yachtsman has very unique bread in the bread basket that I have never seen anywhere else, and it is out of this world.  It looks more like a muffin than bread, but in reality it is a flaky onion loaf that peels apart in layers.  You can pair it with the roasted garlic provided or the fresh butter with crushed salt on top.  Either way, it is delicious.
I’ve tried other things on the menu from time-to-time and everything that I’ve tried has been excellent.  So if you are in WDW, and need a beef fix, the Yachtsman is the place to go for a lovely upscale dinner that hits the spot every time.

The 6 mile long Disney Skyliner opens at the end of the month in Walt Disney World, and we are now starting to hear confirmation of some of the operational details.

As expected, lightning will be addressed by the Skyliner system closing when lightning is forecast. The system does feature lightning protection, but Disney will obviously be keeping guests out of the sky during bad weather. Bus service will be available during weather closure of the Skyliner.


Disney Skyliner is able to carry 10 guests per cabin, and guests may also travel with strollers, wheelchairs and service animals.

There are five stations in total covering the 3 lines - at Caribbean Beach, Pop Century/Art of Animation, Disney Riviera Resort, Disney's Hollywood Studios and Epcot International Gateway. Caribbean Beach is the main gateway and you will transfer there to each destination.

Although Disney Riviera Resort doesn…
