    Is there any difference between, or reason to pick the Yacht Club over the Beach Club and vice versa? I have visited the Boardwalk but don't know where one ends and the other begins, or if they are really 2 separate places? We can't wait to stay.Thank you!

    They are two different resorts, but I think the main difference is in the themes of the resorts.  Beach Club is, as you might expect, a more relaxed, beach feeling type of atmosphere.  The Yacht Club resort is more of an atmosphere that conjures up feelings of sailing - but maybe in a more formal, Ivy League way.

    Beach Club is a few steps closer to EPCOT, Yacht Club is a few steps closer to the Friendship Boats.  You'll also find that some of the Beach Club rooms have Juliet balconies (no room for sitting) as opposed to full balconies, whereas the Yacht Club rooms feature full balconies.

    Thanks so much for your question!  I hope this helps you in making your decision!
