PHOTO TOUR OF A ROOM AT DISNEY’S YACHT CLUB RESORT
Standard rooms at the Yacht Club are being refurbed, with the renovation expected to be complete by the end of 2017. This tour is of an un-refurbed room from my March 2017 visit. I’ll have a renovated room to show later this year, but expect it to be near identical to a refurbed Beach Club room, except for colors and details.
Renovated or not, these standard Yacht Club rooms sleep either four on two queens or five on two queens and a sofa that converts to a bed. These photos (and the floor plan) are of a five-person room.
As is typical, when you enter the room the bath is on one side and the closet on the other.
…expanding the storage available in the room and handy to the bath. The coffee maker may be on top of it, or on the desk.
Next comes the large closet.
Here’s one side.
Note the ironing board etc. on the other side of the closet. There’s also a small safe set in the closet–all Disney rooms have small safes, some smaller than others.
On the other side you’ll find the bath, starting with a pair of sinks.
In a separate space you’ll find the toilet and tub.
Deeper in the room you’ll find two queens on one side, and in the rooms with the fifth sleeping spot, the desk is on this side too.
Here’s the beds from the back of the room…
…and a close up of one of the beds.
There’s a small shelf on the bath wall, and this bedside table between the beds…
…with a bit of storage.
Here’s the desk:
It includes a small rolling table that plays multiple roles: perch the kids on the couch or bed and roll it up to them for dining, or use it as a better-height laptop table.
Note the worn edges. These rooms badly need their current refurb.
On the other side of the room you’ll find the TV and dresser, and in five person rooms a couch–maybe I should call this a daybed?
The TV side from the back.
The dresser includes a mini-fridge…
…and four smallish drawers–making the extra drawers near the bath that much more valuable.
Here’s the couch.
Take off the throws and it’s a bed. I measured it at 72″ long by 30 inches wide, with a 6 inch cushion.
The arms are right on the cushion, so it sleeps shorter than the mattress length implies–but it is comfortable!!
On my latest stay our balcony had distant views of IllumiNations…
…but other stays here have had less good views–this one was of the roof of the central back-of-the-house kitchens shared by the Yacht and Beach Club.
There’s some nautical theming in the room–e.g. the sailboats on the shower curtain, the wheel in the headboards, and the 12 Meter race above the couch.
Some other nautical and Disney touches:
These rooms are nicely proportioned and have all the right furnishings. They are tired, though, and need their refurb!
