The night before the DCP check-in, my parents and I stayed at the Yacht Club. None of us had ever stayed there before. I always get excited when trying out something new at Disney World!
The first thing I noticed when entering the lagoon view room was that the room had a cruise ship feel to it! It even had the curtain that could be drawn to separate the sides.
Although the room was supposed to sleep up to five people, this room could only sleep four. Besides the queen size bed, there was a day bed and a pull-out sleeper chair. We felt the layout of the resort was a bit like Animal Kingdom Lodge, because we had to walk (what seemed like) a mile before we actually made it to our room.
Before the DCP, I was able to have oatmeal (love Disney oatmeal!), a banana and coffee in the small quick service breakfast area conveniently located in the Yacht Club lobby. This area turns into a bar at night.
I love staying in the Epcot resorts, because I love eating dinner at Epcot! It’s so convenient to be able to walk to-and-from Epcot without the hassle of waiting for the bus.
I would prefer to stay in the Beach Club or Boardwalk because they have Vacation Club Villas, but I would definitely stay at the Yacht Club again in a heartbeat. I didn’t have the chance to swim in the pool, but the Yacht & Beach Club share a pool that has sand on the bottom and a fun water slide. Love that! And, Beaches & Cream is located there, too. Eating a “Kitchen Sink” is on my Disney bucket list!
My parents took us out to a nice dinner at Coral Reef. I absolutely love eating there because of the ambiance and the food. I loved my Mahi Mahi, and my mom loved her Maple-Glazed Salmon. Next time, my dad said he would be ordering the salmon, because it was that good. After dinner, it started to rain, so we hung out in the Living Seas Lagoon for a while watching the fish, sea turtle, dolphins and manatees.
