    Howdy, Moms Panelists! We're planning a trip to WDW in May. We love Epcot and would like to stay in close proximity (walking distance) to this theme park. What are the pros/cons of staying at the Beach Club vs the Yacht Club? We have a 7-year-old daughter.

    Hi Kimberly!

    Thank you for sending in your question to the Walt Disney World Moms Panel.

    Both resorts are fabulous and they are actually connected together, making it easy to use the services and amenities of both.  In fact, they both share Stormalong Bay, the best swimming pool at a Walt Disney World Resort.  It is fantastic!  They also share a boat dock where you can catch a boat to Epcot or Disney's Hollywood Studios.

    I don't think there's a huge difference between the two.  I personally prefer the Beach Club because I like it's theming better (it's more laid back in my opinion) and it's about 5 minutes closer to Epcot when walking.  However, I have stayed in both and I usually let price dictate; most of the time that had led me to the Beach Club.

    Good luck with your decision.  You really can't go wrong with either resort.  I hope this helps!  Please write back with more questions!
