No. 10 Disney’s Yacht Club Resort, Lake Buena Vista, FL
You guessed it: the theme at this Florida resort is nautical, from the brass fittings to the hardwood floors to the steak-and-seafood restaurant’s portholes. After a day of splashing around Stormalong Bay, the on-site three-acre water park, families can stroll along Orlando’s Crescent Lake to the lighthouse nearby.
Parents Love: Renting a 10-seat pontoon boat from Bayside Marina to navigate through the resort waterways—no experience necessary.
Kids Love: Being buccaneers for the day to search for treasure on a pirate adventure cruise.
