    Just returned from WDW and already planning our next trip! Looking into either Beach Club, Yacht Club, or Boardwalk for our next one. My son will be around 8 when we go back. Feedback on favorites, which is better/worse? what differs, besides theme??

    Hi there Elizabeth,

    How exciting to be planning your next Walt Disney World vacation! The Epcot Resort area is one of my favorite places to stay when visiting the Walt Disney World Resort. I have personally stayed at Disney's Beach Club ResortDisney's Yacht Club Resort and Disney's BoardWalk Inn several times each and can honestly say you are considering three great resort locations for your next visit. 

    In regards to Disney's BoardWalk Inn, my family loves the theming and the evening activities that can be found along the BoardWalk. However, my 4 children prefer Stormalong Bay (at Disney's Beach and Yacht Club) over the Luna Park Pool at Disney's BoardWalk Inn as well as the dining options at Disney's Beach and Yacht Club Resort. 

    Although I do love all 3 of these Disney Deluxe Resorts, my family's absolute favorite is Disney's Beach Club Resort due to the relaxing atmosphere, New-England style theming and its close proximity to the International Gateway entrance of Epcot.  Although both Disney's Beach and Yacht Club are sister properties and share amenities and recreational activities, I love the convenience of having the Beach Club Marketplace, a Quick-Service location and gift shop, inside the Beach Club. 

    I don't believe you can go wrong with any of the resorts you are considering; however, I hope this information is helpful in making the best decision for your family. If you have any additional questions, please don't hesitate to ask. Best wishes for a magical trip, Elizabeth!

    Happy Planning,
