Yacht Club Resort

The grand, turn-of-the-century summer homes of Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket are recalled in Disney's Yacht Club Resort and Disney's Beach Club Resort, two deluxe-category hotels at Walt Disney World Resort.

Guests can walk or go by tram from the resorts to Epcot, or travel by water taxi to Disney's Hollywood Studios. Convenient bus service transports guests throughout Walt Disney World Resort.

The luxury club hotels on the shores of 25-acre Crescent Lake are designed by noted architect Robert A.M. Stern, best known for his East Coast seaside homes. The resorts take guests back to the 1890s with fancy-cut shingles, French doors and other post-modern embellishments that are the trademark of Stern's work.

The imagery follows through in Stormalong Bay, a 2 1/2-acre water recreation area reminiscent of a Nantucket beach with a life-size shipwreck with water slides, snorkeling in a sandy lagoon and a meandering swimming area that seemingly flows into the surrounding lake.

There is also a 73,000-square-foot convention center adjacent to the resorts that includes a 36,000-square-foot ballroom capable of seating up to 2,800 for dinner.

Complementing each other, the three-, four- and five-story club hotels nonetheless have distinctive architectural styles. Each hotel has its own entrance motif, main lobby, restaurants and retail shops.

New England Echoes in Disney's Yacht Club Resort

Oak floors, antique chandeliers and rich millwork and brass evoke memories of New England summer days in Disney's Yacht Club Resort. Cast members in navy blue blazers greet guests as they check into the silvery-gray clapboard hotel.

The 621-room hotel offers luxurious suites, including presidential and vice-presidential suites. Spacious rooms decorated in blues and whites carry through the nautical theme. All have French doors that open onto porches or balconies.

An expansive croquet lawn at Disney's Yacht Club Resort goes with the relaxed, leisure spirit of the 1870s, and the resort's marina lighthouse welcomes guests home after a day in the Walt Disney World theme parks.
