Dining isn't a strength at Yacht Club, but tons of options are short walk away at EPCOT or the four other resorts.

Ale & Compass Restaurant The cuisine is advertised as “New England comfort food.” Reader ratings have improved substantially over the years, without compromising the diversity of the menu.

Yachtsman Steakhouse Open for dinner only, Yachtsman Steakhouse serves up steak, seafood, and sides. This is a signature restaurant that tries to create an atmosphere, so expect high prices and to adhere to a minimal dress code.

Market at Ale and Compass A small spot carved out of the gift shop, the Market has coffee, pastries, and other small items.

Ale and Compass Lounge Ale & Compass is a competent restaurant, the kind of place you'll be happy to find at dinnertime if it's raining and you don't want to go outside; or everyone is starving and you need to eat right now. Ale and Compass is a better choice for breakfast. You'll find something for everyone in various combinations of eggs, potatoes, bacon, tofu, French toast, and so on, with a la carte options if you just want a quick bite.

Crew's Cup Lounge The Crew’s Cup Lounge is one of the better bars in Walt Disney World, although the reason for that statement is hard to explain. The entire room just feels...well, cool. It starts when you approach the door, which is found in the Yacht Club’s hallway, heading towards the Beach Club Resort. One of the things that makes Crew’s Cup cool is the understated sign hanging in the hall, a few steps up, as well as a plain door. The facade is easily overshadowed by the Yachtsman Steakhouse, but that secret, speakeasy style entry makes it a little hard to find, and we all know that the coolest places don’t need to advertise. Walking in you immediately notice the theme, which is rowing, but are not overwhelmed by it. There are a few images of rowers here and there and a few oars along the walls, but it is mostly just a quaint, slightly dark, overwhelmingly wood-paneled lounge. The rowing theme obviously fits in with the Yacht Club Resort and the Crew’s Cup looks as if it would be a place that a crew team would hang out after practice. While many Americans do not think of crew or rowing as major sports, it certainly has a long history in the United States. It began as soon as the English landed, having been popular there several centuries prior. Yale University boast the oldest American college crew club, started in 1843, and the Harvard versus Yale regatta is the oldest intercollegiate sport in the U.S. It is so old in fact (started in 1852), that it had to be paused during the American Civil War! The entire Crew’s Cup Lounge hints toward this history. The shell (or boat to you landlubbers) hanging from the ceiling is a common place for storage when there are no racks. The oars along the walls are each painted differently, which is how a team identifies itself (although these oars match no teams that we could find). Even just the exposed rafters and craftsman touches point toward a New England style around the year 1900. For those interested in what goes on in a kitchen, there is a window that looks into a section of the Yachtsman Steakhouse’s back of house. Often during dinner time you will see a prep chef getting ready for the mealtime rush. Once you decide to have a seat, there are a few different options, with seats at the bar, a handful of booths, a few tables and chairs, and also a few couches. Whether you are there for dinner, relaxation, or to watch the television, you will find a seat to match. Speaking of dinner, there is both food and drink aplenty, although the drink list is our one big knock on The Crew’s Cup as it follows the standard Disney drink menu. The food here is above average and consists of hearty appetizers, burgers, and chicken tenders. Nothing fancy, but good quality and decently priced (for Walt Disney World). The Crew’s Cup Lounge is not often mentioned as a favorite spot, and we will hope it stays that way because that just means more room for us. After all, if everyone knows it might stop being so cool.

Fittings & Farings Fittings & Farings is Yacht Club's souvenir shop. A small selection of snacks, drinks, and other groceries are available.

Refillable Mugs Allows guest self-service soft drink refills from quick-service locations in hotels ( NOT in theme parks ) for $21.99 for the length of stay.

Practical Matters

Check-in is 4:00pm Check-out is 11:00am

All Disney resorts participate in Disney’s Online Check-In program. If you’ve checked-in online and provided a mobile phone number or email address, you will receive your room number electronically. Then you can go straight to the room and use your smart phone or MagicBand to open the door, skipping the lobby altogether.

These rubber and plastic wrist bands can function as your room key, park admission, charge card, and more! MagicBands cost money, but if you'd like a free option you can use the official Disney World app on your phone or request an RFID-embedded card at the front desk.

Park tickets are best purchased online in advance either directly through Disney or via our Least Expensive Ticket Calculator . However, if you arrive without park tickets, head to the concierge desk in the hotel lobby.

Dining reservation are best made online in advance or on your phone or tablet during your visit. You can also use our Disney World Reservation Finder .

Washers and dryers are availabile in laundry facilities at each Disney World hotel. Cost is $3 per wash, and another $3 per dry cycle. A small selection of soap, fabric softener, and dryer sheets are also sold, for around $1 each. Only credit/debit cards can be used for payment. For more information, see our Disney World Laundry Facilities page.

If you lose something in a theme park or during your stay at a Disney-operated hotel, visit Disney's Lost and Found website or call (407) 824-4245.

Disney hotels have gifts shops near their lobbies with a decent collection of Disney-branded souvenirs. You will also find basic pharmacy items such as sunscreen, aspirin, allergy and cold medicine, baby diapers and formula, shampoo, and the like. Resort hotels with Deluxe Villa rooms offer an assortment of groceries, as well.

Disney recommends a third party company, Kid's Nite Out , to provide babysitting services at the resort hotels. See our Disney World Child Care page for more information.

The Yacht Club is located in the EPCOT Resort Area. All modern GPS apps, and Google Maps, will have clear driving directions to it. As a backup, look for Disney road signs directing you toward the EPCOT resorts (not EPCOT) once you're on property, and then look for signs for the Yacht Club once you're close.

Disney Skyliner gondola system has a station at EPCOT's International Gateway entrance. The ride to Hollywood Studios is about 12 minutes (plus waiting time in line).

Disney provides free bus service to the Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, Blizzard Beach, Typhoon Lagoon, and Disney Springs from the bus stop at the front of the resort. Buses run about every 20 minutes. For all destinations except the Magic Kingdom, it's probably faster to drive or walk.

If you have your own car , it's faster to drive yourself to Disney's Animal Kingdom, the Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach water parks, and Disney Springs. Disney's transportation system is faster to the Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, and Disney's Hollywood Studios.

EPCOT is a short walk from the Yacht Club, and the walk to Hollywood Studios is just a little longer.

Disney provides free boat service to EPCOT and Disney's Hollywood Studios from the resort.

You can walk between the Beach Club, Yacht Club, BoardWalk, Swan, Swan Reserve, and Dolphin. Boat service is available to all of those, too, except the Swan Reserve. The Skyliner at EPCOT's International Gateway can take you to Caribbean Beach, Riviera, Pop Century, and Art of Animation. For all other resort destinations, the fastest option is an Uber, Lyft, or taxi. Disney's bus service is free but slow, and will probably require you to use an intermediate destination like Disney Springs, to get to your destination. And that can take a couple of hours each way if you're unluckly.

if you have a car, the easiest way to get to Universal Orlando, SeaWorld, and other tourist destinations is to drive. Alternatively, Mears Transportation operates shuttle services between the Disney hotels and other theme parks.

Hotel with the best pool complex at Disney World: Review of Disney's Yacht Club Resort

Summer Hull

Update: Some offers mentioned below are no longer available. View the current offers here .

When you think of a Florida theme park hotel, I'd bet you probably don't think of deep, rich colors, hardwoods and a refined turn-of-the-century, New England-style nautical-themed resort.

And when you think of a hotel pool, you likely don't conjure up images of a 3-acre waterpark complete with a life-size shipwreck replica that is home to a long, twisting, turning waterslide.

But all this, and actually a lot more, is precisely what you'll find at what has to be one of the best hotels at Disney World , Disney's Yacht Club Resort. In fact, when we picked this resort for a short Florida getaway, we actually considered not spending any days in the Disney theme parks to go along with it. We amended that plan for one day at Epcot, but it wouldn't be unreasonable to do an entire vacation here without getting on a single ride. In this case, the resort could be the destination.

Disney's Yacht Club (1990) opened in the same era of rapid Disney World development as Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort (1988), and both share a type of ocean theme. However, the two couldn't be more different from one another. With just over 600 rooms (compared to more than 1,500 at Caribbean Beach), this deluxe Disney resort offers guests a vacation within a vacation both in terms of comfort and amenities.

After a recent stay at the property, it was all I could do to not add another night when the time to check out unfortunately arrived. And while not everything is postcard-perfect at this Disney resort at the moment, I promised myself (and my kids) we'd be back. It's that special.

hotel yacht club disney world orlando

Let's start with some bad news: Disney's Yacht Club is often expensive.

This is one of Disney's deluxe resorts and there is no Disney Vacation Club wing of this hotel. This means you can't rent DVC points to potentially book a room for less the way you can at places such as Polynesian Village Resort. (Note that you can do this at the neighboring Beach Club Resort.)

If you can snag a room during a sale or with a solid discount, you can probably get the rate down to $350-$400 per night, but it's unlikely to go much lower. It's common for rooms here to go for $500 and up, especially once standard rooms are sold out and you need to pay even more for a water view, which is precisely what I had to do. The view itself is (in my mind) not actually worth an upcharge, but sometimes that's all that's available.

hotel yacht club disney world orlando

While I booked during a 30% off sale, my water-view room at the Yacht Club still came to just over $500 per night. There are some ways to use points for Disney World vacations , such as using miles from the Capital One Venture Rewards Credit Card to offset the expense at a 1 cent = 1 mile valuation , but there's no way to get outsize value for your credit card points at Disney properties.

If you do decide to book a Disney resort like this one, it can make sense to go through a Disney Vacation Planner as that doesn't add to your cost and they do a great job staying on the lookout for sales and discounts and keeping track of all those ever-changing components of a trip to Disney World.

No doubt it sounds a touch insane to spend $500 for a theme park-adjacent hotel room, but the location is one reason why Disney's Yacht Club commands that rate (and often sells out).

This hotel is just a 5-10 minute walk from the World Showcase entrance of Epcot. It is also within walking distance of Disney's Hollywood Studios, or you can hop on a boat to take you there since that walk is a bit longer.

Being so close to Epcot also means that the Skyliner stop at Epcot is within very easy reach, opening up even more Disney locations such as the Riviera Resort , Caribbean Beach Resort and more.

Yacht Club is also an incredibly short stroll away from the BoardWalk, which is home to even more shops and restaurants.

hotel yacht club disney world orlando

I'm happy to save money and stay off Disney property on the first night of the trip, or for trips when we aren't going for an all-in Disney family vacation. But when we do go all-in on Disney World, I want to be in the "Disney bubble." Staying at Yacht Club puts you in the heart of the Disney bubble, well-cushioned in your own deluxe nautical-themed space, but just an arm's reach from lots of great Disney dining and entertainment options.

We arrived at Disney's Yacht Club in the early afternoon, after starting the vacation off with a character brunch at Topolino's Terrace at the top of the nearby Disney Riviera Resort . (Which I highly recommend you add to your to-do list if you love characters and can snag a reservation.)

Since we arrived a few hours before official check-in time, I didn't have high hopes our room would be ready, given the era of pandemic precautions, but that became the first pleasant surprise of the trip when Room 2077 was ready and waiting for us several hours early.

hotel yacht club disney world orlando

Check-in is also where we were informed that while room service has returned as an option for breakfast and dinner, regular housekeeping had not yet returned to Disney resorts . Towels and trash would be attended to every other day. For our two-night stay, that meant there would be no formal housekeeping services, though we could ask for more towels and such.

hotel yacht club disney world orlando

If you are able to manage stairs, you can easily access the second level of the resort — where we stayed — via the lobby without using the elevators.

hotel yacht club disney world orlando

In fact, heading up the lobby stairs reveals some fun touches, such as a ship's wheel, among other themed decor.

Our room was a bit of a walk down several hallways, so if that's an issue, ask for a room closer to the lobby if available.

hotel yacht club disney world orlando

Inside a room at Disney's Yacht Club, you aren't going to find bright colors, Disney characters or loud decor. If that's what you want, I recommend Disney's Art of Animation , which has plenty of color and characters.

Yacht Club was renovated in recent years to appeal not only to traditional Disney vacationers but also to conventiongoers who frequently stay at the resort during normal times. And in this case, everyone won with a redesign that maintained the overall theme but upgraded the offerings.

hotel yacht club disney world orlando

The rooms still carry out the resort's high-end nautical theme, but in a way that is elegant and more refined than the previous 1990s-era version.

Like with other Disney resort upgrades, the beds are now raised and the floors are now hard instead of carpet. As Disney renovated rooms across its properties, this has been the standard it is changing to.

hotel yacht club disney world orlando

There's a pullout sofa that can be used as a sleeper and a small writing desk.

hotel yacht club disney world orlando

Most notably, there were outlets everywhere. We travel with a lot of things that need charging and we didn't come close to using them all up. Some furnishings may be made to look like turn-of-the-century New England, but they are loaded with modern-day power.

hotel yacht club disney world orlando

The two queen beds were perfect for a good night's rest after a busy day at Disney.

In the room, you'll also find a minifridge and Keurig.

hotel yacht club disney world orlando

We were impressed with the amount of storage the room had in the form of shelves, racks, cubbies and drawers. We were able to stay far more organized than normal with a family's worth of stuff, thanks to the storage options.

hotel yacht club disney world orlando

There was a balcony with two chairs that overlooked a well-manicured green lawn and technically some water. Remember, this was a pricier water-view room after all.

hotel yacht club disney world orlando

I adored the drapes, both because they did a great job keeping light out in the morning but also because they were adorable and perfect for the room, featuring constellations.

Like at many other similar Disney resorts, the bathroom had a vanity with two sinks located in a cubby between the main room and the bathroom, so it could be used while someone was in the shower.

hotel yacht club disney world orlando

The bathroom area had a sliding door for both the room itself and the tub/shower combo. There were plenty of Disney H2O+ bath products in the shower and bathroom area.

hotel yacht club disney world orlando

We found the room incredibly nice, but do know that it doesn't take much to hear what's going on in the hallway or other rooms around you. If you like total silence, you'll be well-served to pack some earplugs and a white noise app to go along with your Mickey ears.

The Yacht Club room is plenty comfortable, but that's probably not why you stay at Disney's Yacht Club — it's certainly not why we paid what we did to stay here.

Stormalong Bay pool complex

What makes this resort so special is the 3-acre pool complex shared with the neighboring Disney Beach Club Resort.

hotel yacht club disney world orlando

Dubbed Stormalong Bay, this pool complex has everything from a 230-foot waterslide to a lazy river, whirlpool, shallow splash area, toddler slide, hot tubs and more. It even has a sandy bottom in some of the areas, which feels so much nicer on your tired Disney feet than a hard surface.

hotel yacht club disney world orlando

This pool area is almost a mini-waterpark and certainly worthy of planning some time in your schedule just to enjoy it. Right now, it can get busy to the point where there is no way to get in during peak times.

However, we had a blast also going late at night after the parks closed, when there were very few people in the pool at all. While the hours can vary, it was open from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. during our stay.

hotel yacht club disney world orlando

There are four cabanas at the pool you can book if you want extra space and service, but you need to reserve well in advance if you want those because they go quickly.

hotel yacht club disney world orlando

Getting into the pool requires verification you are a resort guest and you're then assigned the colored wristband of the day to wear. There's plenty of towels at the pool, as well as a small army of lifeguards keeping a close watch on the various areas of the pool.

Stormalong Bay is adjacent to Hurricane Hanna's Waterside Bar & Grill, so it's pretty easy to pop over there and order a snack or cocktail. The $12 seafood roll turned out to be a perfect snack for us.

hotel yacht club disney world orlando

My 11-year-old gave the $6 Lava Smoothie (made of raspberry, coconut and pineapple flavors) high marks and my $14 Frosé was excellent.

Whether your group is made up of adults, some teens, tweens or toddlers, this pool area is truly excellent, especially if you build in some time to enjoy it when most people are sleeping, eating or in the Disney parks.

hotel yacht club disney world orlando

Evening movies on the beach

Several nights per week at 8 p.m., a Disney movie is shown along the "beach" at the Yacht Club. This is free to enjoy and the week we were there the films showing were "Zootopia," "Sleeping Beauty," "A Bug's Life" and "Disneynature: Earth."

I'll never fully understand who needs a treadmill at Disney when it's normal to walk 10 miles a day in the park, but Yacht Club has those and more in its gym that overlooks Stormalong Bay.

hotel yacht club disney world orlando

Magical Express Bus

Until the end of 2021, if you want to take the included Magical Express Bus transportation to and from the Orlando airport, that's available to those who stay at this and any other full-fledged Disney resort hotel. If you decide to self-park at Yacht Club, it's going to cost you $25 per night. The upside is that the fee also gives you access to parking at the Disney theme parks at no additional charge.

The Magical Express Bus stop is right in front of the hotel entrance, and the bus stop to go to the various Disney theme parks is just to the side of the hotel entrance.

hotel yacht club disney world orlando

Still-closed amenities

If you remember when I mentioned there are still some small bumps at Yacht Club, here's where they begin.

Those looking for the ultimate, once-in-a-lifetime Yacht Club experience may want to hold off a tiny bit longer if you want to experience all the amenities. The Club Lounge remains closed, as does one of the main sit-down restaurants.

On top of that, the onsite Ship Shape Salon is still closed, along with the Lafferty Place Arcade.

hotel yacht club disney world orlando

Normally, you can rent boats or even sign your kids up for a pirate-themed adventure that leaves from the dock outside of the Yacht Club, but all of that is also still on pause.

We had plenty to do for a few days without any of those amenities, but just keep in mind that some things remain shuttered for now.

Related: Changes to expect at Disney World in 2021

Ale & Compass Restaurant

Just off the lobby of Yacht Club is a dark, subdued restaurant called Ale & Compass. While you do need reservations to eat breakfast or dinner here, it's one of the easier reservations to get at Disney World.

Described as "Yankee comfort food," this menu has options such as lobster-and-corn chowder; a fantastic salad called the Ale & Compass salad with additions such as pumpkin seeds and beets; steak; pasta; and a burger with bacon and Vermont cheddar served with thick fries.

Getting good photos in the dark restaurant was next to impossible, but we enjoyed our salad and burger.

hotel yacht club disney world orlando

And while we didn't eat breakfast here, I've heard good things about the dark chocolate waffles.

Our service here was quite friendly but incredibly slow. The wait for our reservation was pretty extensive, followed by another wait for a server to arrive at our table to start the meal-ordering process. This is likely at least in part due to the restaurant having a brisk business of to-go orders that you can make from the Disney app, along with the other sit-down restaurant at the hotel remaining closed.

Related: These are the best restaurants at Disney World

Ale & Compass Lounge

Another alternative to the restaurant is the adjacent Ale & Compass Lounge, which also has a sleek, updated, but pretty dark look once day turns to night.

hotel yacht club disney world orlando

In the back of the lounge is a bar, with the front portion offering a variety of seating options and a reduced menu that still includes the burger and chowder.

hotel yacht club disney world orlando

The Market at Ale & Compass

In the gift shop area of the hotel is the Market at Ale & Compass, where you can order grab-and-go options in the Disney app.

hotel yacht club disney world orlando

We tried the $12 breakfast bowl that had a little bit of everything on it and was actually almost enough food for myself and two kids for a quick pre-park breakfast.

hotel yacht club disney world orlando

The $7 ham and cheese breakfast sandwich on a pretzel roll also looked really solid.

In the afternoon and evening, you'll find a variety of sandwiches, a hot dog and a panini on the menu.

Beaches and Cream Soda Shop

If you're going to splurge cash on staying at the Yacht Club, I highly recommend also splurging some calories at Beaches and Cream. You're going to need to make a reservation here well in advance (dining reservations are accepted 60 days before your trip) or get very lucky.

hotel yacht club disney world orlando

We planned our trip pretty close-in and were never able to snag advance reservations, but got lucky with timing that they had an outdoor table available for us to order the most exciting item on the menu ... the Kitchen Sink.

This $35 sink of ice cream is made of eight scoops (vanilla, chocolate, strawberry, cookies and cream and mint) along with every single topping in the house. Oh, and there's also an entire can of whipped cream on top.

hotel yacht club disney world orlando

It's epic, huge, ridiculous and a lot of fun.

The three of us barely put a dent in it but certainly had fun trying.

There are more regular-sized ice cream options on the menu, too, but if you're doing a once-in-a-lifetime trip, try this once-in-a-lifetime dessert.

hotel yacht club disney world orlando

Should you want more than just sugar for your meal, this is also where you'll find burgers, sandwiches, chili and other 1950s classic-style treats.

Yachtsman Steakhouse

This second sit-down restaurant has not yet reopened, but when it does, this is where you can go for those post-convention expensed sales dinners ... or a very nice meal out for two. The menu features a $135 seafood tower, prime porterhouse, lobster, filet mignon, elk, lobster and other similar entrees that start around $50.

Overall impressions

I'm a total and complete sucker for a well-themed, well-located Disney World resort. Resorts such as this one, along with Disney's Polynesian Village Resort, Disney's Wilderness Lodge, Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge and others, have me hook, line and wallet.

hotel yacht club disney world orlando

For me, the resort hotel isn't just a place to sleep at night, it's also a destination much like the theme parks themselves. I enjoy the scent in the lobby, the storyline of the property, the Disney touches throughout and the convenience of being fully immersed in Disney magic.

While my kids vetoed the idea, I'd have been totally happy having Disney's Yacht Club Resort serve as our actual final destination for the weekend with no park time at all. However, since it is such an easy walk to Epcot, adding that park on was actually a whole lot of fun, too.

If what you want is just a decent bed close to the parks, don't stay here. You're probably overpaying to stay at Yacht Club if you don't truly value the Stormalong Bay pool area. You can stay at the next-door Disney Swan and Dolphin for a fraction of the cash if you're just after location.

And right now, with some amenities still closed, I don't recommend staying here if you are going to be upset when things aren't 100% full service and perfect. The prices are as high as ever to match demand, so don't expect a reduced price to match the reduced amenities.

But if you can overlook a few things and what you want is a fun, slightly grown-up hotel theme, a great location, access to the best resort pool at Disney World and easy access to multiple restaurants, Disney's Yacht Club Resort is now officially one of my favorite Disney hotels — and one that I can't wait to return to in the coming years.

15 Best Family Resorts in Orlando FL Everyone Will Love

W hen visiting Orlando, families tend to spend their days running around from theme park to theme park, but that doesn’t mean they don’t want a fabulous resort to return to at the end of the day. I have lost track when it comes to the number of properties in the Orlando area we have visited, but these are some we would recommend for families based on their amenities, location, and, let’s be honest, cleanliness. It’s hard to narrow down the properties, but we think these are the best family resorts in Orlando FL. 

*Disclosure: This post may contain affiliate links, which means we may receive a commission if you click a link and purchase something we have recommended. Please check out our  disclosure policy  for more details. Thank you for your support!

Where should I stay in Orlando with kids?

If you aren’t staying at the Orlando theme parks, you might wonder where to stay in Orlando with kids. These are some of our favorite resorts in Orlando Florida, and they all offer amazing accommodations for families as well as accessibility to the parks.

1. Marriott’s Grande Vista

Marriott’s Grande Vista   might be the perfect place for a large family stay in Orlando. Not only does it offer luxury villas and a terrific location, but there are plenty of activities on-site to keep everyone busy.

The villas range from studios to two-bedroom units, and larger villas have more than one bathroom. All of them come with fully equipped kitchens. If you want to save money on eating out, this could be a great option.

The property boasts four swimming pools (including one for children), three restaurants, a multitude of children’s activities, a fitness center, and even paddle boat rentals. Golfers have access to the Grande Vista Golf Club, and if there is any downtime, parents can relax at The Spa at Grande Vista.

BOOK YOUR STAY AT MARRIOTT GRANDE VISTA HERE

2. Disney’s Yacht Club Resort

People will ask if it’s cheaper to stay within Walt Disney World Resort or outside. And the answer is: it depends.

We stayed off-property when our kids were younger, and we really should have stayed on-property at Disney World. There are many reasonable Value resorts (we like  Pop Century ) and Moderate resorts (we prefer  Coronado Springs ), but if you can splurge on Deluxe, head to Yacht Club resort.

This New England beach club-themed resort is one of our favorite Orlando family resorts. The resort has a three-acre water play area with a shipwreck, multiple pools, and a lazy river.

There are several restaurants on site, from casual poolside to the Yachtsman Steakhouse. And you can easily access the back entrance of Epcot and avoid the crowds.   Click here for more Epcot tip s !

The rooms at the Disney Yacht Club are extremely comfortable and feature garden or water views. Regular rooms sleep four comfortably, and there are suites for up to 6 people. There’s also mini golf and an arcade on the property to entertain families on-site.

Looking for fun after dark? Check out the illuminated pickleball court or the nightly campfire. 

Other Disney resorts we recommend are the  Disney Riviera Resort ,  Disney’s Beach Club  (great pool and easy access to Epcot), and  Disney’s Grand Floridian  (easy monorail access).

3. Embassy Suites-Lake Buena Vista

Not far from the theme parks is one of the best  Embassy Suites in Orlando . This is an all-suite resort that is perfect for families.

The spacious two-bedroom family suites have kitchenettes and pull-out sofas so your entire group can feel comfortable spending time in the room.

The complimentary breakfast is a perfect way to start the day (our kids loved the made-to-order omelet station), and many enjoy the complimentary evening reception with snacks and drinks.

The resort has a putting green, indoor and outdoor pools, a basketball court, a beach volleyball court, a kids splash pad, dive-in movies, and outdoor cabanas with TVs and refrigerators. Our kids enjoyed the live music and food and beverages that were available poolside.

This property is a Walt Disney World Good Neighbor, which means they offer complimentary theme park shuttle service to Magic Kingdom, and guests can purchase Disney tickets at the guest services desk to save themselves time at the parks.

BOOK YOUR STAY AT EMBASSY SUITES ORLANDO HERE

4. B Resort Lake Buena Vista

Located close to Disney Springs,  B Resort & Spa  attempts to set itself apart from other properties with its artistic decor and quirky touches. Rooms are spacious, and some of the family-friendly rooms offer bunk beds as a special treat.

A stay here is simple and comfortable. This is perfect if you plan to spend most of your time at the parks or other attractions. Relax in the zero-entry pool or check out their kids game room. 

There is 24-hour room service and a restaurant on the property, but with easy access to all the restaurants at Disney Springs, it is easy to satisfy everyone’s palates. The hotel also offers shuttle service to the Walt Disney World resorts and ticket sales for the Disney theme parks.

CLICK HERE TO BOOK YOUR STAY AT B RESORT!

5. Marriott Royal Palms

Marriott’s Royal Palms  and its luxurious 2 bedroom villas are perfect for families. One room is a master suite with a soaking tub, and the other is a spacious bedroom with its own bath. A full kitchen and table is the perfect setup for making meals before or after a day out.

The hotel shares amenities with the Orlando World Center Marriott. Hotel guests can enjoy the quieter outdoor pool at the Royal Palms or take the shuttle to the waterpark at World Center.

We enjoyed a nice stay with the grandparents overlooking the Royal Palms golf course. The property is equidistant from Sea World, Universal Studios, and Walt Disney World, making it a solid choice in Orlando.

CLICK HERE TO BOOK YOUR STAY AT MARRIOTT ROYAL PALMS

6. Signia by Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek

Signia by Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek  is conveniently located to all Walt Disney World resorts and is situated on a 482-acre nature preserve.

Kids will love the lazy river and water park, and parents will love having access to the 12 restaurants shared by Hilton and its sister property, the Waldorf Astoria. 

Rooms are spacious, comfortable, and well-appointed. Some have views of the Disney World parks, and there is a suite option that sleeps six guests. 

Families have access to the Waldorf Astoria kids club, and there are plenty of activities throughout the property to entertain children of all ages. The hotel also offers free transportation to Walt Disney World and the purchase of WDW tickets.

Golfers have privileges at the Waldorf course, and the Waldorf spa treatments are available to Hilton guests as well.

7. Four Seasons Orlando

If you want to splurge for your family vacation,  Four Seasons in Orlando  is the place to go. Located within the gates of Walt Disney World near Fort Wilderness, this luxury resort is a perfect mix of Four Seasons experiences and Disney. It’s also one of our favorite places in Orlando with a water park.

There are character breakfasts, Disney in-room celebrations for special occasions, and a Disney planning center on site. In addition to everything Disney, guests will enjoy the all-day complimentary kids’ camp, dive-in movies, splash zone, water slide, and lazy river.

Parents will love the spa, golf course, and tennis courts. Rooms are quite spacious, and many offer balcony rooms with spectacular views of Disney fireworks.

CLICK HERE TO BOOK YOUR STAY AT FOUR SEASONS ORLANDO

8. Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin

Swan and Dolphin Resort  is perfectly situated for accessing all of the Walt Disney World parks. The property is two separate hotels, The Swan and The Dolphin, connected by a walkway and sharing some amenities.

Guest rooms come in different sizes, from Standard to Grand Deluxe to Suites. They have an understated aesthetic, which is nice if you want a calming atmosphere after an overwhelming day in the parks. 

The property has five heated pools, a game room, jogging trails, a spa, and a complimentary shuttle service to the Disney parks.

The properties offer 17 on-site restaurants and lounges with a large variety of cuisines. Young guests will love dining with Disney characters at Garden Grove, or even a casual meal poolside.

BOOK YOUR STAY AT SWAN AND DOLPHIN RESORT

9. Loews Sapphire Falls Resort 

If you’re looking for a comfortable and low-key resort within Universal Orlando,   Loews Sapphire Falls Resort  is a great choice. This family-friendly hotel has an elevated vibe but is still perfect for the whole family – whether you have little ones splashing around the pool or older kids who want non-stop action at the Universal Parks. 

At Loews Sapphire Falls, you are within walking distance of Volcano Bay water park, and the water taxi will take you straight from the hotel to the other Universal parks. 

But you can also have a fantastic time at the hotel. There is a spacious pool area with a water slide and cabana rentals, four restaurants and lounges, and a fun Caribbean-inspired design that’s not over-the-top. 

Room options will fit a range of family sizes. Have a little more space with a kids suite, which has twin beds in their own room. Or opt for the hospitality suite that has a dining area, kitchenette, and sitting area. 

CLICK HERE TO CHECK RATES AT LOEWS SAPPHIRE FALLS

10. Universal’s Cabana Bay Beach Resort

If you love a kitschy 1950s vibe, you have to check out  Universal’s Cabana Bay Beach Resort . 

This is one of the Universal value resorts, and it puts you steps away from the action of the theme parks. Onsite amenities include two huge swimming pools with a waterslide and lazy river, a bowling alley, an arcade, a fitness center, a food court, multiple bars, and a Starbucks. 

Many families choose the Cabana Bay Beach Resort because it’s so close to the Volcano Bay waterpark . Even though it is within walking distance of the Universal parks and the CityWalk entertainment area, there is also a shuttle to get you back and forth (perfect after a long day on your feet!). 

Rooms are colorful and funky, and the 6-person family suites offer extra space plus a kitchenette. The entire hotel has such a fun vibe for a family vacation, and kids will feel completely at home. 

CLICK HERE TO CHECK RATES AT CABANA BAY

11. Encore Resort at Reunion

Encore Resort at Reunion  is a popular choice for large families, but it’s also perfect for anyone who wants to enjoy a resort-style experience with all the comforts of home.

The resort is a collection of vacation homes, ranging from 3 – 13 bedrooms, so you won’t feel cramped as you try to relax between Orlando adventures. 

Or, you can spend most of your vacation time right on the grounds of the resort! Each home has a private pool, and some also have hot tubs and game rooms. 

The resort’s pool area here is impressive: a 60-foot tour with three thrilling slides, a large splash area for younger children, and a pool with cabana rentals. The property also has a basketball court, a playground, tennis courts, and a sand volleyball court. 

There are some good dining options at Encore, but you can also take advantage of the full kitchen that’s right in your private home. There will also be a washer and dryer along with a private driveway. 

Your stay includes free transportation to Disney World (just minutes away), Universal, and Seaworld Orlando. 

CLICK HERE TO CHECK RATES AT ENCORE RESORT AT REUNION

12. Ritz Carlton Orlando Grande Lakes

Ritz Carlton Orlando is a great option for families who want a luxury accommodation to go along with park convenience. The resort sits on over 500 acres with lakes and a farm, making it a true escape.

Within the resort there are suites and rooms, but there are also residences. The Residences offer up to 4800 square feet of space and include full kitchens and multiple bedrooms and baths.

Spend your days relaxing in one of the poolside cabanas, or explore the resort’s pools and access to Grande Lakes Waterpark. Other amenities include an 18-hole Greg Norman golf course, a world-class spa, and 13 restaurants. There is no need to ever leave the property!

CLICK HERE TO CHECK RATES AT RITZ CARLTON ORLANDO

13. JW Marriott Orlando, Grande Lakes

Orlando’s JW Marriott is worlds away from the loud, kitschy excitement of theme park hotels. Yet it’s still decidedly family-friendly, and it’s close to all the area’s popular attractions. In fact, they even provide shuttle service to Walt Disney World. 

But staying here still feels like an oasis as you settle into its quiet atmosphere. The resort is situated on a 500-acre expanse of land that includes lakes, a championship golf course, and a working farm. 

Unwind in its world-class spa, or soak up the sun at the adults-only pool. Or, hang out with the kids. The property boasts a fun aquatic obstacle course, falconry experiences, kayak rentals, and fishing lessons. 

Guest rooms are spacious and comfortable, with private balconies and chic bathrooms. We especially love their executive suites, which have two or three bedrooms and can sleep up to 12 guests. The bunk beds are a big plus for little ones!

The restaurants at JW Marriott are a welcome reprieve from theme park food. Enjoy a breakfast buffet, a chef-created burger menu, and a MICHELIN-recommended Italian restaurant. 

CLICK HERE TO CHECK RATES AT JW MARRIOTT ORLANDO GRANDE LAKES

14. Gaylord Palms Resort

The Gaylord Palms Resort is a really fun place for families, especially if you take advantage of their onsite waterpark. Older kids can go on the thrilling slides (including a free-fall water slide), while younger ones love the zero-entry pool and water playground. 

But there’s more to Gaylord Palms than its waterpark. The interior is gorgeous: an atrium that captures the beauty and spirit of Florida all in one place. Rooms are spacious and comfortable, and you can upgrade to suites that have kitchenettes. 

Grown-ups can visit the Relâche Spa & Salon or escape to an onsite bar. Dining options for all ages include a breakfast buffet, Jamba Juice, and Old Hickory Steakhouse. 

Stays here include a shuttle to all the Disney World Parks, and it’s close to hot spots like Universal and Seaworld, too. 

CLICK HERE TO CHECK RATES AT GAYLOR PALMS ORLANDO

15. Hard Rock Hotel at Universal Orlando

The Hard Rock Hotel has a fun theming that perfectly complements your time at Universal Orlando. Everything revolves around music, glamor, and fame, helping each guest feel like a true rock star. This might be the perfect option if you are visiting Orlando with teens.

The massive pool has an underwater sound system. There is a giant waterslide for big kids, a fountain area for little ones, and a bar service for the grown-ups! The fitness center has steam and sauna rooms if you want to get in even more relaxation. 

Club-level rooms include morning breakfast and evening beer and wine. Future Rock Star Suites have the ultimate theming. Kids can sleep amid memorabilia of today’s top stars. Or, they can hit the stage – the floor changes color beneath your feet, and the backdrop is a crowd of adoring fans. 

There’s a casual all-day restaurant, a steakhouse, a grab-and-go spot, and room service at the Hard Rock Hotel. The property is within the Universal Resort and has a shuttle service to the various parks. 

Stays at Hard Rock Hotel include Universal Express Unlimited, which allows you to skip the line at select rides within the parks.
