The rooms at Disney’s Yacht Club Resort have been refurbished. I think they look great! I love the new furniture. We haven’t stayed in an updated room yet so if you want to see some photos head over to Disney Tourist Blog. I also found a video on YouTube where you can see a little tour of a wheelchair accessible room. The layout looks similar and the shower seems really nice.
In February we stayed in a wheelchair accessible room at Disney’s Yacht Club Resort for the first time. It’s a resort that we have both wanted to stay at for a long time. We’ve visited several times to eat and to view the Christmas decorations so I was pretty excited. We enjoyed our stay and loved a lot of the features in the room.
Our room was wheelchair accessible with a roll in shower. There were two queen beds with space enough between the two that I could have used either. They were a little higher than some of the beds in other Disney accessible rooms but I was able to get in and out on my own.
The hallway had a chest and it’s also where the closet was located. The chest had two drawers that I was able to use to store a few things. The coffee maker also sits on top. We didn’t used it but it would have been difficult to use on my own. The closet had a lower self and rack that were easy for me to reach but I typically don’t hang many things up.
The main area of the room also had storage that I could reach easily. It is also where the refrigerator is located. If you are like me and like to set up your suitcase instead of unpacking everything, there is enough space here to place a luggage rack with your suitcase.
The bathroom was combined and had a pocket door that was easy to open and close. There were two sinks that were easy to roll under and use. I could also use the mirrors which always makes me happy. There was an additional make up mirror that was placed well too.
Since the wall next to the toilet wasn’t very large there was a bar that you can put down if you need to use it. The roll in shower was smaller than some of the others I’ve used but it was easy to roll in to transfer to the bench. The shower head is adjustable so you can place it where it is most comfortable for you to use.
One feature that this room had that I hadn’t encountered anywhere else is an automatic door. There is a button inside that you can use to open the door when you are leaving. It also makes opening the door a little easier. Just keep in mind that it takes a few seconds for the door to close. If it doesn’t work there is a switch at the top of the door that someone can use to turn it on for you or just call the front desk so someone can fix it for you.
We had a great time at Disney’s Yacht Club Resort. The room was spacious and easy for me to navigate. And the location is one of our favorites. It’s easy to walk to Epcot and you can walk or take a Friendship Boat to Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
