OK, I have the new Stormalong Bay Slideshow complete. All new photos taken during our July trip. The new Slideshow is quite a bit longer (70 photos) and I've increased the image size from the original SAB slideshow.

Gotta love this pool! :teeth:

That was an awesome look at SAB, I've never been over there, and it looks so nice. Next vacation, I'll have to go check it out, it's always fun to check out the other resorts, even if your not staying at them. Who knows though, maybe I will just decide to stay there now!

Thank you for the pictures. It was great to see the SAB pool. We are BCV owners, and can not wait to go. I am sure the kids will love it. Again thanks for all you pictures.

Fabulous slideshow. I've told you before, I WANT your camera. We are going to the BCV's for the first time in January. By God, I will be swimming in this pool if its 20 degrees out!! :Pinkbounc Maybe I'll have the whole thing to myself? How cool would that be. Thanks SO much for doing this, I had no idea Hurricane Hannah's was that big, I pictured it as a very small stand.

p.s. I know I've asked you this before, and forgive me for asking again, but could you tell me exactly the camera you have?

Well we were there in January and it was under 40 degrees most of the day for 3 days in a row!:D:p ;)

Beautiful slide show!

Does anyone notice something?

These are multiple photos of SAB in July---peak season and yet....

Does it look like the added BCV guests have overcrowded the pool? :eek:

What a fantastic and thorough slide show! We haven't been to this pool yet, but can adults go down the slide?

Thanks for sharing!

Nope, Kids only!!!!! But the term "Kids" is loosely used!!! If you're a kid at heart then you're a kid in my book and i'll let you down the slide ;-)

We are going there in November, our first time home, and was so confused about SAB. My daugher and I viewed your slide show and understood what the pool area was about (finally!). We are very excited!!

Thank you! We will be going home for the first time next July. All you folks talk about is SAB and I couldn't imagine why. Now I know! It is huge!!!!!!!! We never take time to go in the pool when we go down, but that just might change.

Thanks again for all your effort.

Tagrel, those are awesome pictures!

I've got a question that may have been asked before, but DBF and I will be staying at BCV in January. My sister, BIL and niece will be staying outside the park. Will Disney allow day guests who visit us to use the SAB?

:confused:

Thanks everyone! I'll try to answer a few questions...

I use a Minolta DiMAGE 5. Love it! :) (and as for swimming in January - go for it! The pools are heated!) :teeth:

There were lots of people, but its so big and spread out there is always room somewhere. We were at the pool several times during the week, and it was never SUPER crowded. Busy, but not unreasonably so.

Are you a life guard at SAB? I just might have gotten you in there! I'll have to try harder next time. There was one lifeguard up at the entrance to the slide... :) The lifeguards I saw just seemed to have that "Oh look, another stupid tourist with a camera" expression! ;)

They sure can. Either slide for that matter! :) (Although it looks best if you hit the little slide with a little one! ;)

This is a questoin I've seen many times, but I've never seen the answer yet. Does anyone know for sure?

Thanks again everyone. Glad you liked the slideshow. If I missed any questions, just let me know.

Tagrel,

Awesome slide show!!! I would like to know the answer about guests too! We were at VWL in July and was told by the CM at the front desk outside guests were welcome to use the pool as long as we were with them! I'd like to know the SAB rules for future visits.

Great pics!!!!
What days were you actually at BCV? We were there 7/20-7/25. I looked at them all but wondered if DS and family might have made some shots if it was during those days. Thanks for sharing.

You better go double check those pictures! :) We were at BCV 7/20 - 7/25 as well! :teeth: These pictures were taken on July 23rd and 24th. (Mostly the 24th)

I guess we'll do a one over again. Can you believe we never got one shot of SAB while there? Thanks again, those pics made me homesick though.;)

Why yes I just so happen to be a lifeguard at SAB. I'm down here on the CP right now and loving it. That expression you mentioned isn't really a "oh look a tourist" expression b/c we must maintain eye contact with our water at all times and so if we look up to see what someone is doing on the pool deck it is only b/c we need to do a basic check on our surroundings as well.

:confused:

What we were told is if the day guests do not make you exceed your room occupancy. For example we are a family of 5 staying in a 2 bedroom which has a total occupany of 8, so we could have 3 legal guests.

If you are staying in a studio as a couple you could have 2 legal guests, same with a one bedroom since occupany is 4.

My highest regards to you and all the life guards at WDW. You folks are right on your toes. My little nephew was just playing in the water at SAB and one of the life guards thought he was in trouble. He jumped in to help him in a flash. My BIL was not happy with his son in realizing how his "playing" has caused such a commotion. But everyone was real grateful and very much impressed to see such action of the lifeguard. You guys and gals are terrific!
