“Don't even go there.”
Reviewed 9 December 2009

I would have never imagined that a Disney hotel would not be able to produce a play area for when it is raining outside.
Average room size, terrible food choices, it feels like you are trapped in and are only available to go to a Disney locations. In the middle of nothing else but Disney stuff. Forced to buy from therm at a ridiculous price. Apple juice for my toddler $12.00 for a 12oz bottle.
If I go to Disney again (I don't think so) I will much rather stay at the local Holiday Inn or something else for half the price.

Stayed December 2009, travelled with family

This was our first family trip to Disney. I put several requests for our room and when we checked in, none of them were taken into consideration. However, they were able to accommodate us with the room we wanted plus a pool view at no extra charge. The pools were nice but nothing special. My daughter doesn't like sand too much so she didn't like the main pool with the sandy bottom. We ended up going to the "quiet" pool most of the time. The main perk to this property is the access to the boat and buses. From my perspective it's more centrally located compared to some of the other properties. We stayed 7 days and were able to visit all the parks and still have down time at the pool.

Everyone was very accommodating. The only other negative was that we had to wait FOREVER at the pool snack bar to get lunch. They need to get a better system in place to move everyone through at a quicker pace. Otherwise, we would definitely go back if we ever plan another Disney trip.

Reservation had a few glitches that were not known until arrival, but they were corrected to our satisfaction. Staff was courteous especially Judy, and Captain Woody. We felt we were at our home away from home. We really like the Friendship boat transportation to Epcot and Hollywood Studios. Stormalong Bay the Pool for the Yacht and Beach club is fantastic for children.

Stayed for 5 nights 2 Oct 09. Booked a Mears Town car on line, which was waiting for us even though we landed early. Once at the hotel we were upgraded to a lake view room which was great. Looked out over the lake and Board Walk. Also could watch the nightly fireworks from Epcot from the balcony ( food festival was on ) so not sure they do the fireworks every night normaly.
Room was great, had everything we could want. Beds, well what can I say, never slept so well.
They recommend you book a table in the restaurants well in advance. We asked the conceirge to try and change a booking we had at the Yachtsmen Steak House, no can do, so we just went along to restaurant later and asked, no problem, told it would be 10min's given a pager and went to the bar next door. Pager went off, and we were shown to a great table for 2 in the window overlooking Storm Along Bay. Great night.

Found a really nice pool just to the back of our part of the hotel( Admiral Pool ). Only 2 or 3 people around, so plenty of beds or tables. Also has a Laundry room next to it, so for a total of $5 you can get everything washed and dryed while you swim and sunbathe.
We were on the Disney Dining Plan, and I have to say that saved us a small fortune, food is not cheap anywhere in Disney, but it's normaly good.

Overall a great stay, with great conections to Hollywood Studios by boat from the pier, or a 10min stroll into Epcot and a 5min walk across the bridge to the Board Walk. Or failing that, there are the Disney Buses from the front of the hotel that will take you anywhere in Disney, we never waited more than 10 min's for one.

Enjoy, we did.

The Captains Grill is located inside the Dinsey's Yacht Club. This is one of the best kept secrets at Disney. Christine our server and she was the best. Ordering NY Strip which was tender and cooked to order and Snow crab legs were the best, sweet and served with potatoes and drawn butter. Relaxing and unrushed, Christine gave us the best service during our stay at Disneyworld.

I have spent a week at the Yacht and Beach Club at Walt Disney World now on 5 different occasions. It is hands down my family's favorite vacation destination! The hotel is beautiful, is extremely well run and has a truely awesome water park right in front of the hotel. We often got out to the parks early, took advantage of the fast passes and were back by mid afternoon to swim in the hotel water park for several hours. Then we returned to the park for dinner and evening activities. The best thing about the Yacht and Beach Club is it's location. It looks over a large lake with a beautiful view of the Disney Boardwalk area which is within a quick walk. You can walk from your hotel to Epcot and can even see the Epcot fireworks from the hotel. It is also a quick and pleasant boat ride to MGM. All of this makes many restaurants very convenient. The staff at the Yacht and Beach Club treat you like royalty and have helped us with many a reservation. All and all it is very easy to relax and leave your cares behind!!

This is a great place for families with young children. The staff was very nice and hospitable. The room was a bit small for us ( there were four of us) but had a balcony that made up for it.
