    Does the Yacht Club have wheelchair accessible pools? If no do they have a transfer into the pool?

    Hi there, Gail! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thank you for allowing us to help you plan your Walt Disney World Resort vacation!

    Disney’s Yacht Club Resort is one of a handful of Disney Resort hotels that surround the serene Crescent Lake. This environment creates an inviting callback to New England-style elegance with the added excitement of being just a few minutes walk from Epcot’s secondary entrance, the International Gateway. There’s so many amazing amenities, dining locations, and leisure spots, it can be a bit tough to decide which you would like to experience first! 

    One of my personal favorite amenities at Disney’s Yacht Club Resort would have to be Stormalong Bay, the massive 3-acre aquatic area that boasts some of the coolest offerings of any Disney Resort hotel pool! Stormalong Bay features a relaxing lazy river, three whirlpool spas, and the highest waterslide at Walt Disney World Resort. This feature pool is wheelchair accessible due to it’s zero entry design as well. This allows Guests to experience the sandy-bottomed main pool without needing to transfer to a pool entry system. However, if a Guest would prefer to experience one of the three leisure pools, Disney Resort hotels do utilize a chair pool entry system at pools that do not feature zero entry. 

    Hopefully this has answered your question regarding accessibility at Disney’s Yacht Club Resort pools!
