Disney's Yacht & Beach Club Resorts are reminiscent of leisurely, 19th-century summers spent at sprawling oceanfront resorts that once dotted the Eastern seaboard. While the resorts evoke the spirit and flavor of the past, their service and amenities reflect the Walt Disney World Resort's high standards and contemporary amenities. The resorts are located on a 25-acre lake adjacent to Epcot(r), with easy access to the other Disney theme parks.
Location/Access: The resorts are 30 minutes from Orlando International Airport. Motor shuttle costs $14 one way, and cabs are also available. It's 20 minutes to downtown and 10 minutes to the convention center.
Accommodations: Echoing the gray clapboard and blue-and-white "stick" houses of the last century, the resorts have 1,217 guest accommodations, including 30 suites. In-room amenities include coffeemakers, safes, minibars, valet laundry service, voice mail, and modems.
Recreation: Activities featured throughout the Walt Disney World Resort include 99 holes of championship golf, four theme parks, including the new Disney's Animal Kingdom(r) Theme Park, three water parks, full-service marinas, a professional-caliber sports coliseum, and state-of-the-art fitness centers.
Dining/Entertainment: Options include the Yacht Club Galley, the Yachtsman Steak- house, Cape May Cafe, and a variety of restaurants and lounges, which range from elegant dining to casual fare.
Meeting Facilities/Services: The resorts feature a business center, two permanent convention registration counters, and convenient dock access. The 73,000 square feet of flexible function space includes the 38,016-square-foot Grand Harbor Ballroom, a second ballroom, and 21 breakout rooms. The Grand Harbor seats 3,090 banquet-style. The in-house audiovisual department can fulfill any meeting's or convention's needs. Exclusive themed events produced by Disney Event Productions are available.
