We were on-hand for the reopening of Disney’s Yacht Club Resort after its months-long closure due to the pandemic. We have always enjoyed this resort and couldn’t wait to come back. So let’s dive right in to a Disney’s Yacht Club water view room tour!
Upon entering the room, we turn right down a small hallway.
The entrance hallway had dark wood on each side, with the restroom door on the left and closets on the right.
This bright bathroom features a double sink vanity and plenty of lighting. Both the fixtures and the area behind the mirror are illuminated.
Of course each room comes with amenities in individual packages.
The shower is next to the toilet and has two shower heads — one fixed in place and one removable for handheld showering.
Unlike some other hotels on property with amenities bolted to the wall, this shower comes with individual-use shampoo, conditioner, body wash and soap.
Out in the main bedroom, we have a large storage unit…
Two closets! The bar in the closet has LEDs running beneath it and there a few shelves.
This door opens to the safe. Above the safe is a very cool little feature. That white stack which looks like sheets actually unfolds into an ironing board.
The board unfolds and then pivots to the side so that guests may use the iron whichever way works for each piece of clothing.
Now we enter the bedroom.
The coffee station has the mini-fridge beneath.
The center cabinet in the dresser opens to reveal the extra bedding and pillow. Note the TV remote wrapped in plastic to show it has been cleaned as part of the “Enhanced Cleaning” found resort-wide. The unit also has a multitude of USB and standard outlets.
Across from the TV sit the two queen beds.
On the wall next to the bed is a framed print of a boat’s bow with a Mickey icon and the number 71, denoting the year Walt Disney World opened. There’s also a nifty shelf with close proximity to more outlets.
The nightstand has drawers for storage and, again, more outlets.
Next to the beds is a desk and a rollaway table with a cute porthole-inspired mirror above.
On this table can be found the in-room dining menu. Disney’s Yacht Club Resort is the only resort in Walt Disney World currently offering in-room dining.
On the other side of the room sits a love seat.
The very blatant instructions show us that this is also a bed.
Beneath more nautical art, one person can sleep on this futon.
We’re heading out to the lovely patio next, but we have to see the coolest feature in the room first…
The pattern on these curtains features Disney characters as their constellation counterparts. The Disney characters that have been immortalized as constellations include Mickey and Minnie, Mushu, Flounder, Pegasus, Hercules, Pluto, Ferdinand the Bull, Simba, Ariel, Kenai, and Koda. These are Disney parallels for Draco, Pisces, Pegasus, Orion, Canis major, Taurus, Leo, Virgo, Ursa major and Ursa minor.
Now let’s head out to the patio.
The patio area includes a small table and two chairs — perfect for sipping chilled wine and watching the water after a long day at the park.
A privacy wall is located between patios on the first floor.
Disney’s Yacht Club doesn’t offer the most thematic rooms at Walt Disney World, but they may just be the most functional, and therefore most comfortable. The proximity to EPCOT, and even Hollywood Studios is a nice bonus, along with access to the best pool on property in Stormalong Bay.
