What ever it is, the memories shall last
Because Erika and her family SURE DID HAVE A BLAST!

OMG That poem was AWESOME!!!! You should write professionally!

Beach Club Trip Report - Question-CL Value

Your trip report was fun to read and your vacation seemed quite eventful. We are going in April(3 rooms 6 adults and 5 small children) and I thought staying at BC CL was the best choice. We are gifting this trip to our children and grandchildren so I make the decision on where to stay and I am questioning if I made the right choice. It ends up being almost $100 a night + per room. Do you think after your visit it was worth it? We last all stayed at Poly in a non CL and it was fine but thought access to quick breakfast and snack/drinks(wine at night too) was a perk.

Also the pool/chair issue was ridiculous. Admire your patience. Do you know if you can rent cabanas at BC as you can at Poly?

Again, thank you for your trip report and I will appreciate your opinion.

Well, I have to say I prefer the Poly CL as my first choice, but it was going to cost an extra $1500, maybe it would have been worth it. Of course the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence.

I didn't see any cabanas at SAB, someone correct me if I'm wrong. Maybe they will add some with the new construction? That would be a good idea.

I think CL has a benefit for the continental breakfast and drinks. We went through a ton of waters. Most of our issues really could have happened anywhere, you can't predict a broken toilet or rude people, so I think you will be happy at the bc CL. It's definitely one of the most affordable CL experiences. If money wasn't a factor I would probably do the poly CL. Or a two bedroom villa at kidani. I also love the GF but I'm probably going to wait until the construction is done since we just stayed there in January.

Our ME bus broke down this morning, so we left late for the airport. Luckily they have extra time built in so we won't be late for our flight.

I really appreciate everyone following along and for all your happy positive vibes and good wishes. We had a great vacation. I'm already counting down 150 days til we get back. Looking forward to trying BLT for the first time. I think it will be awesome to be close to MK. I'm hoping we can eat at Be Our Guest.

See ya real soon!!!!

I'm SO sad that you trip is nearly done... How strange is that?!


I am hoping though, now that you've checked out, you will tell me what room number you had at the BC! We're checking in on 8/23 and have a standard CL room booked... I'd love to make a request for that room - full balcony AND a great view? Yes, PLEASE!

Any chance you could PM me the room #?

Room 5666. The devil room!!! Lol That's what we nicknamed it. Yes it has a daybed and a full balcony. Wishes can be seen when you stand on the right side. Spaceship Earth visible too. Also we could hear the UK band perform.

The room we showered in was 5662. Juliet balcony, one queen, one daybed and one sleeper chair. With a curtain separating the bed from the other two. I took pics. They are on my photobucket site.
