Come along as we visit Disney’s Yacht and Beach Club at Christmas to look at the resort’s trees and decorations. These sister resorts are connected and located in the popular Epcot Resorts Area on Crescent Lake.
Normally, the Yacht and Beach Club are pretty well known for their extravagant Christmas displays. The Yacht Club usually hosts a tremendous Christmas village with a train set running through it. The village takes up an entire corner of the large lobby.
Guests also usually enjoy walking next door to Beach Club to see the large-scale gingerbread carousel. Given current circumstances, these two items are not available this Christmas season. Additionally, Disney’s Beach Club is only open to those using DVC points for reservations.
However, both resorts are still beautifully dressed for the holidays. Therefore, continuing our resort Christmas tour, we’ll look at what is available this holiday season.
If you haven’t visited the Yacht Club in the last year or so you might be surprised with the finished outcome of the lobby.
I feel like it turned out very nice and the Christmas decor here at Yacht Club accents everything appropriately.
A Yacht Club Christmas at Disney is truly all things nautical. From the sailboats decor…
to the touches of navigational stars.
Christmas here is a job well done.
These bright blue ribbons add a burst of vibrant color to the space.
And the Yacht Club Christmas tree is truly one of a kind.
I do love it here.
Inspecting the tree closer, you’ll notice a variety of copper, golden, and sea tones.
A variety of boats and ships appear in the tree.
There are even some hanging from the boughs.
Make sure to check out the full review of Disney’s Yacht Club for details on what it’s actually like to stay here.
The long walkway between the two resorts has a bit of color transition in the Christmas decorations.
From blues to greens.
The exterior portion of the walkway has these really beautiful wreaths with sea creatures.
Each one features different seaside elements. These are all located on the exterior walkway that runs parallel to Stormalong Bay.

While Yacht offers a more formal, modern feeling, the Beach Club is its gentle balance. The cooler tones shift to warm yellows with pinks and a mix of sea foam.
The Beach Club has a pair of twin Christmas trees in the lobby decorated with things found from the sea like the starfish below.
Naturally, there’s seahorses and coral.
Matching wreaths complement the entire look.
Along with all the Beach-like Christmas trimmings.
A few steps off the lobby is the Solarium. This is just a gathering area of sorts for anyone visiting. I love to grab a meal in the area and bring it here to enjoy.
It’s also nice that the Beach Club Christmas decorations here are opposite from the rest of the resort. If you are interested in knowing what it’s like to stay on this side of the two resorts, there’s a Beach Club resort review.
These decorations are all things red, traditional, and Santa.
And then there’s the Disney Vacation Club section of the resort.
They have all brand new Christmas decorations this year.
I spoke with a cast member in the area a bit while I was taking photos. She was telling me how much she loved the vibrant colors they used in the tree. And I have to agree, they are really spectacular.
The thing about Disney at Christmas is that you’ll always see something fresh and new along with the traditions we love and expect.
I’m not for sure I would have ever thought to put these white and blue poinsettias in with orange coral and golds.
But somehow it all works.
I love it here also.
Disney’s Yacht and Beach Club at Christmas continues to exemplify what I love most about them. And that’s their unique reflection of each other.
The resorts continue to inspire each other with their differences. But they unify the property as a whole with their passion for the sea.
One will never be better than the other, nor do they try to be. And yet somehow each one of them will always strive to be the best in their own right.
I’m not sure I’m talking about hotels anymore. You probably understand.
Merry Christmas from my most favorite places at Walt Disney World!
Thanks for joining along on our tour of Disney’s Yacht and Beach Club at Christmas!
