The Gift Shop at Disney’s Yacht Club
The gift shop at Disney’s Yacht Club is formerly part of The Market at Ale and Compass, which serves as the resort’s counter service dining location. However, the gift shop is a separate entity with its own checkout area.
This article will look at the gift shop at Disney’s Yacht Club in detail. But it’s important to clarify that nearly everything at the resort is named something-something “Ale and Compass,” which can get confusing.
On this site alone, we have breakfast at Ale and Compass, dinner at Ale and Compass, the lounge at Ale and Compass, the Market at Ale and Compass, and now the gift shop.
So if you see Ale and Compass listed, it could be one of many places at the resort. Now that we’ve covered that let’s see what items the gift shop offers.
These photos were taken in late 2021, so every item you see might not be available on your visit. However, this should give you a general idea of what type of merchandise the store generally has on hand.
Location-wise the Yacht Club’s gift shop is located down the hall that’s off the right-hand side of the lobby.
There are usually several window displays. A few were decorated for Christmas on this visit.

The gift shop has been home to a pop-up cruise shop over the last year. Therefore, you might find a few pieces of Disney Cruise line merchandise.
These items are usually available at the front and center of the shop.
Yacht Club’s gift shop is a little higher end than others. You’ll find brands like Lily Pulitzer, Vineyard Vines, and Tommy Bahamas. Of course, they’ll also have a few Disney backpacks and things.

Additionally, the resort has an excellent selection of resort-branded merchandise. I spend a decent amount of time checking out what each resort gift shop offers and am always impressed with the items I find here.
For instance, that’s a lovely Yacht Club towel in the photo below.
There are beach bags, coffee mugs, tumblers, shirts, hats, and artwork featuring Yacht Club’s logo.
Here is a closer look. The tumbler said, “Cast your cares away at Disney’s Yacht Club.”
In addition, the shop had a good selection of men’s clothing and accessories.
You could definitely find a nice outfit here. Those blue and peach Tommy Bahama dresses feature Minnie Mouse in tropical looks.
Here are a few more pieces of women’s clothing. Those are Disney Dooney and Bourke handbags. Most of the higher-end gift shops offer them.
The back corner has a variety of Disney-branded merchandise.
There is something for everyone.
Near the register area, there is a locked cabinet with a variety of alcohol selections.
It was next to the pet merchandise. Yacht Club is a pet-friendly resort.
Wine selections are available at the Yacht Club gift shop.
Additionally, there is an excellent selection of pool items and sundries that I neglected to take photos of during my last visit. Several people were browsing, and I intended to circle back but forgot.
Since Yacht Club shares the tremendous Stormalong Bay pool area with Disney’s Beach Club, you can expect to find a decent selection of pool merchandise at the gift shop.
