Author: Cara Goldsbury | Comments: 0 | Categories: WALT DISNEY WORLD® , WALT DISNEY WORLD® HOTELS, WALT DISNEY WORLD® SUITES

Disney’s Yacht Club Resort is a favorite for guests who enjoy being near Epcot® and Disney’s Hollywood Studios®. So for all of you fans out there, good news—all the Yacht Club suites and guest rooms have been lovingly renovated in a contemporary nautical style, with the Captain’s Deck Suite being the most luxurious of all!

The resort’s largest at 2,374 square feet, the Captain’s Deck Suite is a two-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath gem. A hospitality suite of sorts, it’s perfect for privacy because of its location tucked away in a corner area in the front of the resort on the first floor. A hardwood octagonal foyer leads to a contemporary, nautically decorated suite decked out in a cream, navy blue, and gold palette.

The sizable great room features hardwood flooring topped with cushy area rugs, a large sectional sofa filled with throw pillows, half-circle modern easy chair in the corner, square coffee table, chess table, credenza above which hangs an oversized TV, and a dining room with seating for twelve; a desk, bar, and half bath sit in a wide hallway near the master bedroom. Off the dining room is a full kitchen (minus a stove) with a full-size refrigerator, sink, Keurig coffee make, and microwave.

Doors lead out of the living area to one of the suite’s best features, an oversized brick garden patio (shrubbery blocks the view of the adjoining parking area).

Each of the bedrooms has its own private patio, with the master bedroom offering a king-size bed, chaise lounge, bureau, easy chair and ottoman. Walk through a hallway with a walk-in closet and vanity area to the lovely white and gray marble bathroom with its oversized shower, deep soaking tub, double sinks, and separate commode area.

The suite’s second bedroom with two queen beds is similar to a regular guest room with slightly upgraded décor, chaise lounge, large bureau, and second full bath. There are several entrances to the suite: the main entrance foyer area; the office/desk/bar/half bath area near the master bedroom; service entrance off the kitchen; and the guest bedroom.
