Welcome to this month’s Magical Blogorail Orange loop. Today we are discussing the best Disney resorts for couples.
Most people think of Walt Disney World as a place for a family vacation. Walt Disney World can be a place for a couple to get away for a weekend as well. There are many great resorts at Walt Disney World to choose from and at a variety of price points depending on the budget. This article is going to focus on the Yacht Club resort. My wife and I, in August 2014, stayed at Yacht Club while our child was visiting her grandparents. It was a fun and relaxing weekend. What can a couple expect out of the Yacht Club resort?
Yacht Club is in the EPCOT Resort Area. This is an excellent place to stay. Guests are within walking distance of two theme parks: Hollywood Studios and the International Gateway entrance to EPCOT. Guests are also just a short bus ride away from the Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom. There is easy access to both the Boardwalk area of shops and restaurants as well as easy walking access to the Swan and Dolphin Hotel and the Fantasia Gardens Mini-Golf Complex.
Yacht Club is home to one of the best restaurants on Disney property in my opinion….Yachtsman Steakhouse.
Located right next to Yachtsman Steakhouse is the Crew’s Cup Lounge for those looking for a less formal experience. Many fine restaurants are also just steps away at the Beach Club, Boardwalk, and Swan and Dolphin Resorts. Those looking for a more international dining experience can venture into the World Showcase at EPCOT. The walk is about 10-15 into the World Showcase so it will be easy to burn off those calories consumed at your meal. )
Yacht Club has one of the best pools on Walt Disney World property as well at Stormalong Bay. This is a vast pool area, over three acres, with a long slide for the adventurous and most of the pool has a sandy bottom. The pool has has a lazy river area for those who just want to float along while everyone else is enjoying the rest of the Stormalong Bay area.
And for those looking for a quieter experience, there are three quiet pools located throughout the resort.
Since Yacht Club is a deluxe resort, the rooms are bigger compared to the moderate and value resorts. Disney continues the nautical theme in the rooms as well.
The nautical theme continues throughout the resort as well.
In closing, Yacht Club is a fantastic resort for couples who are looking for a gateway vacation but still want to be close to the action while still having the opportunity to relax during their stay at Walt Disney World.
