    Do I have to be a member of the yacht club or be staying there to eat at the Ale & Compass Restaurant?

    Hi Tiana! That’s a great name for someone wanting to visit the Walt Disney World Resort! You don’t happen to know Prince Naveen of Maldonia, do you?

    I have great news to share with you! Guests do not need to be staying at a particular resort to enjoy the dining experiences available within that resort! So, you are welcome to book a reservation at Ale and Compass Restaurant at Disney’s Yacht Club Resort even though you won’t be staying in the resort itself during your vacation. This is true of any Disney Dining experience located in a Disney Resort Hotel. While you're in the area of Disney's Yacht Club Resort, you might want to save some room for dessert! Just next to that resort is Disney's Beach Club Resort. This resort is home to Beaches and Cream Soda Shop! This is where Guests will find some of the finest ice cream sundaes in all of the Walt Disney World Resort!

    Tiana, as an additional tip, while you don’t need to be staying in a Disney Resort Hotel to book a dining reservation within that hotel, the same is not true for the Disney Parks. If you would like to book a dining reservation at one of the many table service dining locations within the parks, you must have a valid theme park admission for that park on the day of your dining reservation.

    Come on back to planDisney with any additional questions! We’re happy to help!

    Happy planning!
