I am a Disney travel agent and I have a client wanting to know if you can see the fireworks from the club level lounge - does anyone know? I stayed at the Yacht Club in August but we did not stay club level. Thanks for your help!

We had a GV CL room at BC, and could see the higher Illuminations from our balcony. Never thought to see if we could from the lounge, sorry.

Thanks. To clarify, it is the Yacht Club lounge they are wondering about.

Yes I still have power... it flickered a few times. 1/4 of a million people in Manhattan have no power! The winds are unreal... really scary!

Be safe all in the path!

No Power but Great News!

We are in Eastern PA. Our power went out at 5:15. I hear constant sirens. Yikes!

They won't even begin (rightfully so) restoring until the storm has passed so the tree guys and linemen are safe. Such a flashback to last years storm but fortunately it is much warmer this year. Stay safe everyone that is in the path of this great storm

Oh yeah, the good news. Finally matched the Beach Club through RCI for May. Yay!!! We'll be there 5/15-24th. Oh and Teena.... My friend bought a Tastycake route!!

From YC club lounge you can see Wishes, but it is way in the distance. Magical yes, but not like "wow, fireworks". And no music for it. You cannot see Illuminations from YC lounge at all.

They have closed the transit system down, the NYSE is closed today most businesses are closed and they are closing the holland and brooklyn battery tunnels at 2pm. EPIC storm for sure! I am just outside of zone b we haven't been told to evacuate only zone a is evacuating. My co-op is ground floor windows are even with street levels so I'm hoping I don't flood!!

Hoping all in the path of sandy are safe and continue to stay safe! praying all the first responders who have to go in and rescue those who didn't evacuate are safe!

More later hopefully the power will remain (wishful thinking perhaps)!!

Tied down in brooklyn!!

~Nannette
Stay safe Nannette! Hope u don't flood. Our power is out and I expect it will be out for days. Last years crazy storm knocked our power out for 5-6 days. Ugh!

We're on our way! (hopefully)

To everyone in Sandy's path my thoughts are with you. We know what it is to flood and lose our home. I hope you can all avoid that...

Couchy, fingers crossed you get your flight down. Here's hoping ours will be okay today too

Sending positive wishes and pixie dust your way that your Disney trip goes on as scheduled!

We lost power from around 4 yesterday afternoon until 10. We managed not to kill each other by playing Apples to Apples and Scategories by flashlight.

No school yesterday or today, heading about 30 min north for a memorial service later today.

Still trying to get caught up on everything, but I will go through the thread in a day or two for updates to the Be Our Guest list.

In the meantime, new friends and returning guests.
