Both excellent choices, these sisters are on a pond across from the BoardWalk entertainment area and a short stroll out the International Gateway exit of Epcot's World Showcase, which brings the fun close to your room, although you can't watch IllumiNations from it. Their shared 3-acre pool area, Stormalong Bay, has a crazy water slide coming off the mast of a pirate ship, plus sandy shores. (It’s easily the best pool on Disney property, and it's restricted to guests.) The difference between them is nearly negligible—so much so that many guests think they're one giant hotel, but the Yacht Club has slightly nicer furnishings, bigger balconies, attracts slightly fewer families with kids, is a tad quieter, and is at 10-minute stroll from Epcot instead of 5. Other than that, it's a toss-up.
