    Hi, its my first time visiting Disney.While choosing hotels on the site, I personally liked Disney's Yacht Club Resort, but the only thing I dont like about it is its location that is in the Epcot Area. Is it far from the Magical kingdom and other disney?

    Resort location is truly a matter of preference. I personally love the convenience of the Yacht Club. You can easily walk or take a boat to Epcot, Hollywood Studios, and the Boardwalk. There are lots of great dining and nightlife opportunities just a short walk away, and I love that feeling of being in the middle of it all, while the resort itself is still quiet.

    When you stay at the Yacht Club, you are just a short bus ride away from the Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom, and from Downtown Disney - perhaps 10 minutes for each. Buses run frequently all day, so it's never much of a wait to get to any of the parks.

    If the themeing of this resort appeals to you, I encourage you to stay here and try it out. It's a gorgeous resort and I do not think you will be disappointed!
