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, Disney’s Boardwalk Resort area, Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin resort and a short boat ride away from Disney’s Hollywood Studios. It’s hard to beat that location!

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 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 WiFi, 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 and 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 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 Club 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 show their Key to the World card.

At the Yacht and Beach Club there is no shortage of activities to entertain the entire family! Parents can enjoy an evening to themselves while the kids have fun at the Sandcastle Club playing games, making crafts and watching Disney movies. There are also 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!

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…

Disney Villains After Hours Event

This summer, the Kingdom Konsultant Agents took on a full day of training followed by a late night Magic Kingdom adventure at the Disney Villains After Hours Event.  The night promised low crowds, special effects on attractions, specialty food items available for purchase, a unique stage show and PhotoPass opportunities, and Maleficent at night. In addition, there were complimentary soda, bottled water, popcorn and ice cream novelties with our event admission! We couldn't wait to see what we could accomplish! Pro tip: you won't be able to accomplish it all in one night, there is just too much to see and do!

Walking in to Main Street was a little hectic with the day guests leaving and the party guests arriving.  We almost missed the guide map but managed to double back to grab some so that we could all make a plan! You notice right away a different feel to the park with little hints of the villains all around.



The two main attractions with overlays were Pirates of the Caribbean…
