    We will be staying at the yacht club resort end of August. We will likely arrive before 3pm. Is it possible to enjoy the pool at the yacht club even if your room isn’t ready?

    Welcome to planDisney, Deirdre!

    Wow, a stay at Disney's Yacht Club Resort sounds exquisite! I spent a fair bit of time at that Resort this past December. It's so elegant and relaxing. It even smells amazing! Make sure you enjoy a tasty meal at the Yachtsman Steakhouse. I wouldn't mind having some of that Peruvian-Barbecued Chicken right now! The Ale & Compass Restaurant is also a bit of a hidden gem and has a really nice lounge area.

    But in my opinion, the highlight of this hotel is having access to Stormalong Bay. With a sand-bottomed pool, a lazy river, water slides, and multiple whirlpool spas, it's almost like having your very own water park! 

    And here's the good news: you can totally enjoy the pool areas (including Stormalong Bay) at the Yacht Club Resort whilst you wait for your room to be ready. Just make sure that you've checked into your hotel and you're good to go. I actually did this when I recently stayed at Disney Animal Kingdom Lodge. I checked in and my room wasn't ready. So I got changed in the restroom and spent a couple of hours at the pool. Heaven!

    You're going to have such a great time, Deirdre. Enjoy an evening stroll around Disney's BoardWalk, hop back and forth to EPCOT, and take an adventure on the nearby Disney Skyliner. Magic awaits!

    See ya real soon!
