I’ve never been to a New England-style yacht club — but I imagine it to be much like Disney’s Yacht Club Resort. Located on the shore of Crescent Lake and within walking distance to Epcot, the resort has an upscale nautical theme throughout — from the lobby styled with dark wood and leather furniture to rooms with boating themed decor.
Guest rooms at the Yacht Club:
I loved that my room — at the end of a hallway — had two side windows (as well as a balcony) and this cozy window seat.
The weather wasn’t quite warm enough to spend much time on the balcony.
The resort has plenty of indoor and outdoor spots to sit and lounge, including patio chairs with designated smoking and nonsmoking areas.
The back entrance of the hotel opens out to a walkway to the boardwalk, where guests can catch the boat to the other side of the lake, including Epcot and Hollywood Studios.
