    Yacht club or beach club? Need help in deciding. Thanks

    Hi there, Sheila!

    That's a tough question because both Disney's Yacht Club and Beach Club Resorts are completely amazing in my opinion!

    The rooms at the Yacht Club have a nautical theme that's just gorgeous. It made us feel *almost* like we were on a cruise! Of course, you have the Stormalong Bay pool area that is one of the most amazing pools on all of Walt Disney World property with its sandy bottom. You have access to that when you stay at either Resort though.

    Here's my favorite thing about the Beach Club. Even though both Resorts are within walking distance of Epcot, Beach Club is even closer! Epcot has a back entrance, International Gateway, that lets you right into World Showcase and you are literally steps away from this entrance when you stay at the Beach Club. The Yacht Club is just on the other side, steps away as well, but it's just a few more steps and sometimes those steps are an important thing to consider after a day of walking in the Florida sunshine! Also, if you're planning on doing any Character Dining during your vacation, the Cape May Cafe has an amazing Character breakfast and their Seafood-and-More Dinner Buffet is really to-die-for! This awesome restaurant is right in the lobby of the Beach Club making it so convenient.

    I have to be honest, I absolutely LOVE both of these Deluxe Resorts but I hope I've given you enough of my favorite things about each one to help you make your decision. I know you'll be thrilled with either one! Thanks for stopping by with your question and please let us know if we can help with any others.

    Have a Pixie Dusted vacation!
