  2. The Yacht Club and Beach Club are the BEST resort hotels at Disney. Fewer screaming kids, elegantly themed, good restaurants and close to EPCOT and Boardwalk restaurants as well as those in Hollywood Studios, amazing pool, and easy to walk to EPCOT and Boardwalk and short boat ride to Hollywood studios. Rooms are wonderful. Club level is not worth paying extra for. Also, buses full of screaming teens don’t show up here. They go to the cheap and moderate hotels.
