We have stayed at the Beach Club twice, which is right next to the Yacht Club. They are technically two different resorts. The decor is different in each, BC is very "beachy" seafoam green, white furniture. Yacht Club more formal.

Can't beat the location if you want to go to Epcot or Hollywood Studios. The restaurants are very nice, several in each resort. The pool is shared by both and is, what some say, the best in all WDW.

It's fun to walk around the lake and check out the Boardwalk area, and the Swan/Dolphin, too. It is my husbands favorite area.

Yes. We love it. The sandy bottom pool is awesome. I love being able to just hop on the boat and go to either epcot back entrance or hollywood studios. You can see the fireworks from the beach area too. The "food" store is on the beach club side and can be a haul. But I love the feel of it. The deck is small but was great to eat our breakfast at. Enjoy.

We've stayed at both. They are both really nice, just a bit different decor from one to the other. Enjoy the great pool, the easy walk to Epcot, and check out Beaches and Cream.

We've stayed at both during two different trips. We loved both. As previous posters have mentioned, the decor is somewhat different, but the location of both are great. They share a fantastic pool-Storm Along Bay, which is so much fun. We loved walking over to Epcot, or taking the boat to the Studios. Enjoy your trip!

We have stayed at both (BC more) and just love the entire area. You won't be disappointed at all. The easy access to two parks and all the restaurants in the area can't be beat. We will be returning to BC in Aug. for our annual family vacy and again in Jan for marathon weekend. Can't wait.

We had a wonderful time, but did have our moments!

Pretty much down to my hips on one side, but nice and perky on the other

The Yacht Club and the Beach Club are two different resorts. They are very near each other and share some amenities (including the pool), but they also have several differences in theming, atmosphere and room amenities. In order to get a better answer to your question, you might want to specifiy which resort you are staying at.

We've stayed at the BC and it's a beautiful resort. You can't beat the location and being within walking distance to both Epcot and DHS.
