Today we’re taking you through one of the beautiful refurbished rooms at Disney’s Yacht Club Resort.
About Disney’s Yacht Club Resort
The Yacht Club and it’s sister resort, The Beach Club, embody a New England seaside vibe along Crescent Lake, adjacent to World Showcase in EPCOT. This Deluxe Resort offers plenty of dining and entertainment for guests staying on property. Nautical touches throughout the resort, along with amenities like Stormalong Bay, a sandy beach, and easy access to EPCOT and Hollywood Studios, make this resort a personal favorite of mine.
Yacht Club Rooms
All of the rooms at the Yacht Club were refurbished in late 2017 to bring the decor up to date, and add a light, modern feel. Now, hues of navy blue and beige created a muted nautical vibe with accents like riveting and textile add to the subtle theming. Almost all the standard rooms at Yacht Club can sleep five guests, with 2 queen-sized beds, and one twin pull-down sofa bed.
The dark woods in the floors and furniture give the whole space a sophisticated feel, and the details on the furniture give it a steamer trunk look and feel. There is a large chest of drawers below the mounted flat screen TV that provides tons of space for storage of clothes.
During the latest renovations of most rooms at Disney, they are opting for a laminate floor over rugs, to make the rooms easier to clean, and more allergy/dust friendly. They’ve also eliminated the platforms under the beds, which leaves a huge open space to store luggage during your stay.
A small enclosed nook houses the small mini-fridge, and there’s a cute little coffee station above it. You’ll find a 1-cup Keurig coffee maker, along with a selection of Joffery’s K-cups. Additional glasses and mugs are stored on the shelves above.
A huge wardrobe stands in place of the traditional sliding closet, which has tons of room in it. The smaller door to the right hides the room safe, as well as a fold out ironing board and iron storage.
Directly across from the closet space is a divided bath. The sink area is now closed off to the rest of the room with a large sliding barn door. You’ll find double sinks and a huge lighted mirror. There’s also tons of storage space below the sinks, as well as a lighted rotating make-up mirror.
The toilet and tub/shower are in their own sperate place, closed off by a pocket door, to save space. Sliding glass doors replace the older shower curtains. In the shower, there is a fixed showerhead, as well as a smaller handheld sprayer. Perfect for rising those sandy feet after a day in Stormalong Bay.
Every room includes either a full balcony or a balconette. If you’ve reserved a water view room, you can expect fantastic views of Crescent Lake and the Boardwalk Resort just across the water. From this room we had an amazing view across the water, and we were able to see the fireworks from IllumiNations at night.
Skyliner Transportation – Coming Soon!
In addition to the amazing resort amenities and location, the Yacht Club is also one of the resorts that will be served by the new Skyliner transportation system. Beginning this Fall, the Skyliner will take guests from the International Gateway entrance (a quick walk from the resorts main entrance) to Hollywood Studios, as well as other resorts, including the new Rivera Resort, opening late this year!
