I'm seriously considering doing this. While I was uber-gainfully-employed, I told my former fellow STHBFF (Season Ticket Holder Best-Friend-Forever) we would be Totally Going -- For Sure!!!!! I am a Disney veteran -- Ask me anything!
For the fist part, I hope Storm-along Bay is open (the mega pool) -- This is the Premier non-Water Park pool in the whole WDW resort complex. Disney Resorts limits it to guests of Yacht Club & Beach Club (&Villas) only. The bottom is sand and you can rent tubes to float in a circular "deep" river. There's a pirate ship long water slide into the main pool.
Yacht Club has the one of the best steakhouses in WDW in-house -- and the other within walking distance. Between "Le Cellier" in EPCOT Canada and "The Yachtsman Steakhouse" in the resort, you got 2 of the best on the Disney property.
Walkable: Beach Club, Yacht Club, Beaches & Cream (Soda Shop --must do), Boardwalk Inn -- more specifically the Disney Boardwalk. The Boardwalk is cute and quaint with the olde-time shoppes, street performers and the clubs (ESPN Club, too). The Swan and The Dolphin are also close.
EPCOT is backdoor walkable.
Not walkable -- Hollywood Studios -- TAKE THE BOAT! It's almost a Marathon walk ... I was tired after I did it from Beach Club. I could barely do the park after that.
I am willing to answer any questions about WDW that I can to help. I missed the last couple, but was pretty much there the previous decade or so ....
