    My husband will run Goofy's Challenge 2015. We (family of 5) have a room at Yacht Club as of now, but I'm considering changing to the Beach Club? One reason: I've a 2yrold in tow & heard breakfast is only at BC. What's your opinion between the two reso

    Hi, Kim!

    Welcome! First, congratulations to your husband on making the decision to participate in the 2015 Goofy's Race and a Half Challenge. He picked a great year to run this race as next year's event marks the 10th anniversary of this unique race - complete with a special edition commemorative medal. 

    Second, Disney's Yacht and Beach Club Resorts are fantastic options! Disney's Beach Club Resort is actually my favorite Resort Hotel on property. While I have stayed at both for Walt Disney World® Marathon Weekend presented by Cigna®, Disney's Beach Club did prove to be the most convenient option when traveling with my family of five - namely for access to quick service food items and basic sundries. While the Ale & Compass at Disney's Yacht Club Resort serves coffee and pastries in the mornings, you'll still need to walk over to the Beach Club Marketplace for any counter service type offerings. Not to mention you'll feel very comfortable and at home in this casual, comfortable location. While I did enjoy my stay at Disney's Yacht Club Resort, Disney's Beach Club Resort will always be my first choice.

    I hope this information is helpful, Kim! Please do not hesitate to ask any additional questions you may have. I know all about the logistics of race-cationing with a family of five.

    Happy Planning!
