Walt Disney World Resort - Crescent Lake Area


The lighthouse at the Yacht and Beach Club boat dock...
In World Showcase in Epcot, there's a canal that's generally known as the English Channel, because it separates the United Kingdom from France. Just like the real one. There's an entrance gate there, known as the International Gateway.

You can catch a boat there that will take you all the way to Disney's Hollywood Studios. About half-way down this canal, is an area that widens to a considerable size, known as Crescent Lake. Around this lake is a nightclub venue, as well as some of the places known as the Epcot Resorts.

There are five resorts here. The Boardwalk, Beach Club, Yacht Club, and two non-Disney hotels, the Swan and Dolphin. I haven't stayed at any of them yet, but I have been in the area...

The Boardwalk is a Disney Vacation Club Resort, but it's also the name of the nightclub venue that's themed after the oceanfront boardwalks of old. However, instead of an ocean, there's a lake with high levels of magnesium from Fantasmic! and Illuminations fireworks. I only mention this because there are a lot of tasty looking fish swimming around the docks that'll eat anything...

In December 2009 BYPT Jenny and her current helper Jennette, PiC and I were going to Beach Club for dinner at Cape May. Every bus we needed to take was there when we wanted it, and we got there waaay faster than I thought we would.

So I spent the time waiting for Cape May to open taking pictures of the Christmas displays.

In December 2011, we were passing through Yacht Club to get to Epcot, and stopped to photograph Yacht Club's Christmas Display.

After dinner at Cape May in December 2009, we went out behind the resort and took some night pictures of Crescent Lake...
