The EPCOT Resort area offers you several resorts
to choose from fitting various themes and budgets. Started with
the value oriented Pop Century Resort which when completed will
be Disney's largest resort. In December 2003 the first phase opened
called the Classic Years which has rooms and building themed for
the decades of the 1950's, 60's, 70's, 80's, and 90's.
Just down the road and a little up the price chart
is Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort. This moderate resort is situated
around a good size lake and has clusters of building representing
various islands found in the Caribbean.
Adjacent to EPCOT and within walking distance or
a short boat ride are Disney's Yacht & Beach Clubs as well as
the Boardwalk Resort. All three of these resorts are in the deluxe
price range and offer you incredible amenities from several acre
swimming pools to top of the line dining. These resorts are within
a 1 1/2 mile walk of the Disney MGM Studios or a boat ride away.
The last two resorts in the EPCOT Resort area are
the Walt Disney World Swan & Dolphin (operated by Sheraton and
Westin). These hotels are closer to your traditional resort and
less Disney than the others. They are located a moderate walk from
EPCOT and just over a mile walk to the Studios. Friendship Boat
service is also available.
