It’s summer and that means it’s hot and humid. And if you are vacationing at Walt Disney World Resort, there are many ways to beat the Florida heat.
With two water parks and nearly 60 intricately-themed pools spanning over 47 square miles, you and your family may find a different water activity to exhilarate your senses every day of the year, not only during the hot months.
Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Water Park features the water coaster thrill ride Crush ‘n’ Gusher, as well as the brand new Miss Adventure Falls! And one of its main attractions is a two-and-a-half-acre wave-making pool that pumps out some of the largest man-made waves in the world – so large, in fact, that you can even take surfing lessons.
Disney’s water parks are just the tip of the iceberg. You also can enjoy a variety of exotic resort-based water adventures depending on which Disney Resort you choose to call home. From the two-and-one-half-acre Stormalong Bay at Disney’s Yacht and Beach Club Resort, to the 11,000 square-foot Uzima Springs pool at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge, you are certainly drenched with ways to beat the heat at Walt Disney World Resort.

Mouthwatering cuisine awaits at Yachtsman Steakhouse, located at Disney’s Yacht Club Resort. Walk into this New England-style steakhouse and notice the airy dining room surrounded by New England nautical decor before enjoying their selection of premium steaks and seafood.
Yachtsman Steakhouse only serves dinner, so if you’re a fan of steaks and seafood, this restaurant should be at the top of your list. High-quality, grain-fed beef is their specialty here. Their beef is aged in-house and prepared on an oak-fired grill in the open kitchen, letting you get a great view on all the action.
Start your meal with one of their appetizers such as Maine lobster bisque or Caesar salad with shaved parmigiano, and then delight your taste buds with prime New York strip steak with peppercorn-brandy sauce, pan-roasted chicken, or their “catch of the day.” And you certainly don’t want to miss out on their truffle mac-and-cheese. Pair your meal with one of the wines from their extensive wine list.
Be sure to save room for dessert and enjoy their signature Yachtsman Sundae, crème brûlée, or their peanut butter and pretzel gianduja cake!
You can get to Disney’s Yacht Club by the complimentary monorail and bus system, or you can valet your car. There is a recommended dress code and reservations are highly recommended and can be made up to 180 days in advance.
