    We enjoyed staying at this resort. We love the location on the Boardwalk. This resort is walkable or boat to Epcot and Hollywood Studios. The resort is very clean as were all of the parks. We never had any concerns for our health. Due to Covid, not everything is open on the boardwalk. The main pool area gets crowded in the afternoon and reservations are being accepted. We didn’t know that when we checked in. Make sure you make a reservation if you plan on a pool day so you are not disappointed when you get there. Wait times for rides seem long, but they move quickly. Bus lines are much longer due to covid and safe spacing. Use your Disney experience app to determine when the next bus is arriving at your resort. It will save you time from waiting in line in the hot sun. Overall a great trip. This is one of our favorite resorts.

    We had a lovely stay at the Yacht Club. It was our second time staying here, but the first time during Covid. We knew about the reduced housekeeping and reduced dining options, and Disney sends out reminders about these issues, so people should be aware of them before arrival. We love the beauty, safety and convenience of this property, near the Boardwalk, Hollywood Studios and Epcot. The access to the Beach Club pool is also a great perk. Our room was near the tennis courts, so we enjoyed tennis while staying here. Rafiq at the front desk was very helpful and gave us tennis racket and balls without even asking our room number. Finally, we loved dining at the Ale and Compass Restaurant at this resort, for both breakfast and dinner. The food was fresh and outstanding. We would stay here again.

    Check in is painful, trash pile ups

    Property is lovely and conveniently located but a few things bug us especially considering the cost. We have gone twice and both times the check in process has been painful. Rooms are never ready at check in time of 3 pm with no explanation or apology or even a rough estimate of when it would be ready and the magic bands don’t work well to open the door. They open maybe one in three tries. Even the manager couldn’t do it consistently. Also the toilets at the hotel and throughout all Disney properties are TOO HIGH. I am an adult and my feet dangle which makes them very uncomfortable to use. Housekeeping now is reduced to only taking out trash and replacing towels every second day. Seems to be a covid thing but not sure how reducing the trash removal accomplishes anything. It’s very depressing to return to a hotel room with overflowing trash cans. We and many other guests resorted to putting our trash out in the hallway outside our door to get it out of our room but in the age of covid this seems even less sanitary to walk the hallways past other people’s garbage. Lots of people are doing take out and mobile orders for meals since the restaurants are operating at reduced capacity and you don’t want your leftover pizza box sitting in your room for two days. You would think Disney of all places would remove trash from the rooms daily.

    Best resort at Disney World!

    The yacht club resort is AMAZING! We have stayed here about 4 or 5 times and no complaints! It’s very clean and comfortable and the pool is so much fun! The pool has a lazy river, water slide, and the floor of the pool is sand. This resort is very close to Epcot and the boardwalk which is nice. The workers there are very helpful. Definitely will visit again!

    Most MISERABLE place on earth

    I Thought that after dealing with COVID for a year I would take my kids on a vacation the would never forget. Well they will never forget but not in a good way. From start to finish nothing could go rite. Got to the resort after 4 hour wait for the magic bus . Once at the resort good luck trying to find food for your starving 3 year old everything is either closed or needs a reservation. The food issues is a consistent issue through all parks . Everyone working here is miserable and so disrespectful. Continually scolding my three year old to pull up her mask and not politely one lady even told her I am not going to tell you again who the hell talkes to a three year old like that . After on long first day at the park get back to the room and guess what our room was still dirty beds not made no clean towels etc. . We thought maybe the had accidentally skipped our room no be deal there is always tomorrow. But no the next day the same thing so we called the front desk and they inform us they do not clean rooms during the stay you have got to be joking. I can go on and on about how much terrible this place is . My last straw was when we were confronted my a manager on our way back to a room saying that we need to keep our kids under control and quiet while walking to our rooms . There were 5 kids under the age of 3 laughing and enjoying themselves what a joke . As I went to respond to him he thought it was a good idea to put his hand in my face and tell me to stop he was not done speaking After that I lost it it he didn’t like what we had to say and told us that we’re going to removed from the property by police with a total of 7 young kids at 10 pm . I would recommend not waist there time or money coming to this miserable place .
