Set Sail for Fun in the Sun at Disney’s Yacht and Beach Club Resort


If you’re looking for a resort with a great location, numerous dining opportunities and an amazing pool, look no further than Disney’s Yacht and Beach Club Resorts. Although two separate deluxe resorts, they share a turn of the century New England style theme along with many amenities. They also share a spectacular location next to Crescent Lake.

Disney's Beach Club Resort
One of the best features of these resorts is, without a doubt, their location. With over 1,000 guest rooms combined, the Yacht and Beach Club Resorts are a short walk away from Epcot’s International Gateway, where you can catch a ride on the Disney Skyliner, Disney’s BoardWalk Resort area, Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Hotels and a short boat ride away from Disney’s Hollywood Studios. It’s hard to beat that location!  (If you're in the mood for a longer walk, you can also walk to Disney's Hollywood Studios.)

With its pastel blue exterior and seaside details in the lobby and guest rooms, Disney’s Beach Club Resort gives off a very family friendly vibe. Rooms offer three separate views; standard, garden and lagoon or pool view. Most standard rooms sleep up to five people with two queen size beds and one day bed. 

Disney's Yacht Club Resort room
Disney’s Yacht Club Resort shares the New England style theme of its sister resort, but is more formal with its many nautical touches. Rooms offer the same views as the Beach Club and standard rooms also sleep up to five people. In-room amenities at both resorts include a small refrigerator, alarm clock with radio, coffee maker, free Wi-Fi, hair dryer, telephone, in room safe and an iron and ironing board.

The Yacht and Beach Club Resorts offer some spectacular dining opportunities to meet any of your dining needs. From quick service restaurants to signature dining, these resorts truly have it all! The Beach Club Resort is home to Cape May Café*, which offers a beachside setting for a character breakfast buffet and a seafood dinner buffet. It is also home to a quick service option at the Beach Club Marketplace.

One of my favorite restaurants at the Beach Club is Beaches & Cream Soda Shop. This 1950s style restaurant serves up old favorites such as hamburgers, hot dogs, and milkshakes. If you’re in the mood for dessert, this is the place for you! And if you are really hungry, try ordering a Kitchen Sink, complete with eight scoops of ice cream and every topping in the place!

The Ale and Compass at the Yacht Club offers up American seafood classics at breakfast, lunch and dinner. If signature dining is more your style, the Yachtsman Steakhouse* will be right up your alley! This New England style steakhouse is only open for dinner, and serves premium steaks, fresh seafood and more. If you're looking for an adult beverage, try the Ale & Compass Lounge or Crew's Cup Lounge* at the Yacht Club or Martha's Vineyard at the Beach Club.
Stormalong Bay
In addition to a great location and some exquisite dining opportunities, the Yacht and Beach Club share one of the best pools on property, Stormalong Bay. Stormalong Bay is over 3 acres long with white sand in the bottom of the pool. It has several different sections, including a wading pool, hot tubs, and lazy river. There’s also a shipwreck waterslide that is not to be missed! Due to its popularity, access to Stormalong Bay is monitored at three separate entrances where resort guests must scan their MagicBand.  

At the Yacht and Beach Club there is no shortage of activities to entertain the entire family! There are movies shown nightly on the beach, bike rentals, tennis, volleyball, boat rentals, a playground and an arcade.

Although the Yacht and Beach Club Resorts are some of the more expensive resorts on property, they really give you a lot of bang for your buck. The resorts have a ton of activities to ensure fun for the whole family! From an outstanding location just minutes from Epcot to dazzling Stormalong Bay, Disney’s Yacht and Beach Club Resorts are worth calling home on your next Walt Disney World vacation!

5 Ways To Get Psyched For Your Disney Trip!

Hey-Howdy-Hey, Disney Guys and Gals!      Is anyone familiar with Barney Stinson's "Get Psyched" Mix? Anyone? How I Met your Mother Fans? Ok, great! So you totally get where I'm going with this! If you have no idea what I am talking about, you can watch a clip  HERE!  Basically, the theory is that no matter what's going on in your life, you can get yourself psyched up and ready for something awesome to happen, all by listening to the right piece of music. Playing off of that theory, I feel that one of the very best things about a Disney trip is actually  preparing  for it, or getting psyched! You can have a whole bunch of crappy stuff happening in your life at the time, but if you have a Disney trip on the horizon... even if it's 564 days away, you have something to look forward to and enjoy preparing yourself for. In fact, many Disney fans, (myself included), pretty much get from one day to the next by preparing for upcoming trips. You may even book a ne

You Must Be This Tall to Ride... Universal Orlando Resort Edition

Universal Orlando Resort has branded itself as the more grown-up vacation destination in central Florida. With advertising campaigns like "kids grow up, so do vacations" and "grow bolder", it should be no surprise that there are many attractions at the Universal Theme Parks with height requirements.  If you're visiting the Universal Orlando Theme Parks with little ones, it's very important to familiarize yourself with the ride height requirements so you know which attractions your little ones can, and can't ride, based on their height. You'll find these helpful signs with height requirements for all of the attractions when you enter the Universal Orlando Theme Parks. Universal Studios Florida 34 inches - E.T. Adventure 36 inches - Woody Woodpecker's Nuthouse Coaster 40 inches - Despicable Me Minion Mayhem 40 inches - Fast & Furious - Supercharged 40 inches - Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon 40 inches - The Simpsons Ride 40 inches -

Frontera Cocina at Disney Springs

Frontera Cocina is one of the many restaurants you will find with a celebrity chef at Disney Springs, this one is brought to you by seven-time James Beard award winner, Rick Bayless.  The warm colors and open atmosphere is very welcoming for a contemporary Mexican dining experience.  Reservations are highly suggested and can be made via My Disney Experience or the Open Table app and the restaurant is typically open for lunch and dinner from 11am to 11pm daily.   We had lunch here on a Monday afternoon and the restaurant wasn't too terribly busy at all, which was a welcome change from the hustle and bustle of the weekend. We settled in at a table in the middle of the restaurant and got ready for the meal ahead.  While somehow I missed a photo, we did start our meal with $5 margaritas which is definitely a great deal while on Disney property!  This was a "Margarita Monday" special and we would highly recommend it!  We also opted for some chips and salsa and some queso. Now,
