    HI, we are going in May, my husband , myself and my six yeear old who LOVES epcot. Would you recommed yacht club or boardwalk?..Which is closer to epcot? THanks

    How nice to hear about a young Epcot fan!

    You really can't go wrong with either of these incredible deluxe hotels. The "which is closer" question actually depends a  bit on where in the hotel your room is. The closest room at the Boardwalk is closer than the Yacht Club, but the rooms at the far ends of the the BW and Yacht Club are probably equidistant to Epcot. If you're looking to get close to Epcot, I would actually recommend the Beach Club as all of the rooms there are closer to Epcot than the rooms at the Yacht Club.

    If I had to choose one of these lovely hotels, I would go with the Yacht or Beach Club for one reason only: the pool. Stormalong Bay, the pool shared by the Yacht and Beach Clubs, is like a mini water park all on it's own. Stormalong Bay has a shallow sandy-bottom area that's great for castle building, a junior water slide for younger kids, as well as a drifting river area for adults and swimming areas for children. Also there are a super-fun whirlpool zone and a really spectacular water slide for big kids.

    The Beach Club is my family's #1 favorite WDW resort. But as said, these are all great. You'd be very happy at any of them.
