    If we are staying at the Yacht Club, can we go to the restaurants at Swan and Dolphin resorts?

    Hello there, Donna!

    A warm welcome to planDisney and thank you for bringing us an excellent Walt Disney World Resort vacation planning question. I'm thrilled to hear you'll be checking in at Disney's Yacht Club Resort in just a short couple of days. Staying in the EPCOT Resort Area is such a treat, and having access to Stormalong Bay is unbeatable! Let's chat about the delightful dining options available to you near Disney's BoardWalk.

    Donna, I'm happy to inform you that anyone can make dining reservations at the restaurants at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Hotels! In some Table Service locations, like Amare, Todd English's bluezoo, and Shula's Steak House, dining reservations are highly recommended, so I encourage you to make these as soon as possible if the menus in these locations interest you. It's important to remember that the dining locations at the Walt Disney World Swan, Dolphin, and Swan Reserve Hotels do not participate in any Disney dining plan and do not accept Disney Gift Cards or MagicBands as a valid method of payment. Therefore, you should plan to pay for your meal using a valid credit or debit card or cash. Also, there's a fee to park at these hotels (which is waived for Guests enjoying dinner there) but I recommend making the short walk from Disney's Yacht Club Resort, if possible, versus driving a personal vehicle. It's a lovely little stroll along Crescent Lake!

    At the time of writing, I'm pleased to share that there are many dining reservations still available for your dates of stay, Donna. A few other Disney-owned restaurants to consider visiting during your stay are Ale & Compass Restaurant at Disney's Yacht Club Resort, which offers a bountiful brunch buffet option, and Flying Fish at Disney's BoardWalk, which provides Guests with an upscale Signature Dining experience. I've had the privilege to dine at both locations and highly recommend both!

    Donna, I hope you've found this information helpful and I wish you a restful and enjoyable stay at Disney's Yacht Club Resort. If you have any additional vacation planning questions before or during your trip, you're always welcome to revisit us here at planDisney. We're here to help you make the most of your time at The Most Magical Place on Earth!

    Warm wishes,
