1. Disney’s Yacht and Beach Club Resorts
Any of the Epcot-area resorts would be a perfect choice for your honeymoon as a short walk or boat ride will get you to Epcot, Disney’s Studios and countless dining options. Epcot’s World Showcase in particular is a favorite of ours for its more grown-up atmosphere, diverse selection of cuisine and the opportunity to “drink around the world.”
Of the five Epcot-area resorts, however, the Yacht and Beach Club resorts are our 1a and 1b choices for best Disney honeymoon resort. Though technically separate hotels, they are equally priced, adjacent to each other and share the epic Stormalong Bay. This expansive pool complex is without question the “World’s” best and almost reason enough to stay at these resorts.
The rooms have been recently upgraded, which is good news, since they do without the dated, colorful bedspreads that continue to feature in most Disney resorts. So which “Club” should you pick? For a standard room, we’d go with the Yacht Club since the resort tends to be quieter. We would, however, highly recommend a studio at the Beach Club Villas. For as little as $11 extra per night, you get a kitchenette, which can save you money by replacing pricy resort breakfasts and providing a place to keep leftovers. One-bedroom villas include a full kitchen, a laundry room and a large whirlpool bathtub.
