    Thank you Kay B for answering my last question! I have been looking into the yacht and beach cluband wondered if they share any space? Like the pool area or are they seperate? They both look so nice, and where are they in relation 2 any parks? thanks!

    So glad to hear from you again!  The Yacht and Beach Club resorts feel like home to my family.  They have been the chosen resorts for us for the last nine years!

    They are indeed two separate resorts yet they do intermingle in many ways.  The Yacht Club is a little more laid back and has a more classy business like aura to the lobby.  The Beach Club definitely has the family feeling to its lobby and always seems more busy.  The fact that there are now Vacation Club villas next to this resort more then likely adds to the numbers going through its doors.

    They are attached in building structure but you must actually go outside for a short distance to get from one resort to the next.  In this area you will find the shared Fitness Club, the hair salon, Periwigs, and also Beaches and Cream quick service restaurant.  The pool is part of both resorts and is considered by many to be the best swimming facility on property.  It has extensive areas that include sandy bottoms, slides, lazy rivers, and plenty of beach for the little ones to play in.  Both resorts also have a full service restaurant located just off their lobby, Captains Grill in the Yacht Club and Cape May in the Beach Club.

    The beach and marina are shared but each resort has their own bus stops out from their lobby.
    The Beach Club resort is the closest resort to EPCOT which is a mere five minute walk to the International Gateway entrance. You may use this entrance any time of the day even before the World Showcase has opened.  These resorts can also reach Hollywood Studios via water taxi which is about a 15 minute ride or by walking about a mile on a beautiful path along the water's edge.  At night if you have a water view room you overlook the lights and action of Boardwalk. 

    Try the Yacht Club if you are looking for a quieter visit.
