    Boardwalk Resort or Yacht Club? Undecided. Traveling with three girls ages 16, 11, and 9.

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Catherine! 

    Having frequented both these fabulous Walt Disney World® Resort Hotels many times with my three children, ages 14, 12, 8, I can tell you they would unanimously select Disney's Yacht Club Resort.

    Your girls will love Stormalong Bay! There is absolutely something for all three ages at this splash-tastic location. While your younger princesses take on the Flying Jib Waterslide, your young lady can relax with some "me-time" along the lazy river. In addition, there are always spirited water volleyball games happening in the main sand-bottom pool area. My 14 year old and I had a blast playing volleyball together with other guests when we stayed at the Yacht Club Resort in December. 

    Some tips to remember for Stormalong Bay: 

    • Bring your MagicBand, they will scan it and then give you a wristband as this pool deck is reserved exclusively for guests staying at Disney's Yacht & Beach Club Resorts.

    • Choose a centrally located table on the Yacht Club side of Stormalong Bay. There is a great area that offers tree shade just upon entering the pool area. 

    • This pool is full-service, so there are Cast Members patrolling the area for any drink or food orders you may have. Adding to the relaxing experience. Hurricane Hanna's has a great quick service menu. 

    Another great feature, Disney's Yacht Club Resort rooms are currently undergoing a total refresh, with the 5th floor already complete. So depending on your travel dates, you could have a brand new, reimagined room - they are lovely! 

    I hope this information is helpful in your decision, Catherine! Please let me know if you should have any additional questions.
