Too bad we will miss ya at FQ. We check in 1 week from today.
You won't miss us if you forget to check out and just stay until we get there! Have a great trip and warm up the pool for us!

What time does SAB close, I thought I read somewhere that it was going to be the same hours everyday eventually?? Also I noticed that the kiddie slide is going under rehab the feb 12-18, are they usually pretty accurate on their dates?? I've lost hope in rehab dates after the GF (the pool was supposed to be done in DEC). Also I know breakfast is limited but they still have room service right.

Thanks so much, I'm just in a bit of a panic at this point, but think I'm going to be a GF runaway too
We LOVE runaways! Velkomin!

Attention July travelers:

On the off chance I may have to change our usual May dates to July, how much busier do you think it will be this year compared to the past years? (New Fantasyland) I was looking at a crowd chart, and it seems like the last week of July has a much higher number everyday then when we went in July of 2010.

I hope it doesn't happen, but our schools are letting out a week later than usual and it may collide with soccer.

We think being so close to Epcot and DS will be good.

This might sound silly, but my biggest concern about staying there is the shortage of QS breakfast options. My sons both love getting Mickey waffles for breakfast (which isn't available at the Beach Club QS), and DS8 is a picky eater and has very little "breakfast" food he will eat. He will eat chicken nuggets for breakfast before school, which is fine with me because at least he ate before school. We have reservations for breakfast at the Captain's Grille for the days we are not going to a park (so they can get their beloved Mickey waffles), but don't want to spend that kind of time on a park day for breakfast.

What does everyone think about the breakfast options there? Does the QS have really good baked goods in the morning (the ones at the Poly were not very good)? Do they have lunch type foods in the pre-made selections available in the morning? I appreciate everyone's advice.
You should know that the QS place at the France Pavilion in Epcot will be open for breakfast if it is pastry you are looking for for breakfast!

We're hoping to do July too, we've been this time of year a few times because of school and I've just remembered its tour group time then!

Just wanted to echo all the previous suggestions - between groceries at BC Marketplace, CS at BC Marketplace, the expansive breakfast options at Picabu just a 10-minute walk away, the Boardwalk Bakery (or its temporary substitute), and TS at Captain's Grille or Cape May, I think breakfast should be fine. We love Poly and Captain Cook's is my favorite resort CS, but BC Marketplace comes in second and the Epcot area resorts have a ton of different choices.

I haven't seen pre-made lunch stuff out at breakfast, other than the lunchables, etc. in the grocery case. When we're not staying CL and don't have a breakfast ADR, even our pickiest eater found plenty to eat between bagels, donuts, pastries, cereals and fruit. If you haven't seen the BC Marketplace photo thread I put together, it might give you a sense of the wide variety there: http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=3007564

Hi everyone I'm new to the YC/BC world but I've been busy reading this thread today in an effort to catch up. My eldest daughter is graduating from high school this year and she has chosen a Disney vacation as her present! We're driving down to save some costs (and aggravation) and originally decided on a split stay with 5 nights at the Dolphin and 5 nights BWI CL. Our last trip we stayed at the BWI and loved it, so that's all fine but....when I added up the price of the room at the dolphin, plus tax, plus resort fee, plus parking it looked like we could stay in a standard view at a deluxe for the same amount assuming AAA discount (for now - hoping for some Disney discount in the future ). We wanted to stay somewhere we've never stayed before and so, voila, we though YC or BC (love the Epcot area). So, here's my question, and I'm sorry I'm so long-winded: which resort has the better standard view? Or the least crappy standard view. The decor of both appeal to us so that doesn't matter too much, but a balcony is always nice as long as it's not on top of a rooftop AC unit or something. Any suggestions, or persuasions, all opinions welcome !!! Thanks.

What's the View???

OK, here's what I think I'm going to do.

I have a description of the 3 view categories in the FAQ Section on Page 1. I don't have any pictures, depicting the actual views you may have from your room, so I think I will put up a couple of samples- maybe an awesome view, a nice view and the worst view I can find for each of the categories.

I have been "collecting" some views for awhile, so I need to take a look to see what I have- I may be asking for your help if I need a particular view.

For now, if you have what you consider a "horrendous" view for the category, for example:

Standard- overlooking a dumpster or air conditioning unit

Garden View- trees or other foliage in desperate need of a pruning

Water View- peek-a-boo view of water

please email me at beachclubdee@yahoo.com

Recent pictures only, since the reclassification in view category: 1/1/2011

Hee hee. No help from me. I will forever refuse to admit I've ever had a bad view at Disney. (I know, this perspective bugs my husband but I think there is part of him that appreciates it.) We were immediately above the WL trash cans . . . but could see the MK fireworks at night. We had that unpruned broken twig/green stuff in front of us at BC . . . but I could see and hear Illuminations and was really close to the secret entrance. I should stop talking about this, or I'm going to end up with a REAL bad view at Poly and BWI that even I can't defend!

I'd be glad to grab some shots from our YC SV CL view....I admit to being a little nervous but we don't spend a lot of time on the balcony....

I'll try to get a lot of lounge pics too!!!

Wow, I love that idea of collecting the best and worst of the views! And dumpsters below but a view of fireworks is not the most terrible I would think. I don't like to look down so much, so I'm thinking straight out view...DH and I are sharing a room with 3 teenage girls and once? in a while will need to escape the mania so it would be nice to know that what we're briefly escaping to is not as bad as the chaos within the room...
I guess I'm looking for the odds - BC vs YC what are the odds that a standard view room will more or less "acceptable", in the lottery of life or Disney room assignment, take your pick...
