REAL COFFEE ALERT!!!

Ale and Compass is located just off the Yacht Club Lobby.


In the morning, breakfast items are available like a DECENT cup of coffee and tea, pastries, an assortment of cereal and fruit.

Thanks!

I believe you can use your refill mugs there, but ONLY IN THE MORNING.

I think I read that after 11 or noon, whenever the area changes over to a lounge, you can no longer get mug refills.

If you look in the picture that is posted, there are refill mugs, for sale, in the background.


BTW- I just added the REAL COFFEE ALERT post to the Other Useful Info section on Page 1.

Right now, you are still booked for October?

Do you have a trip booked or are you still in the planning stages. If you would like to be added to the Be Our Guest list, let us know the details.

Let us know if you have any other questions or if you book a trip to the resort.

I finally got started on the YC Deluxe Room thread. I added the link that Teena gave last night, along with pictures from bizzemom4 of a Deluxe upgrade in June 2012, a 2BR Suite from pas130 and the Turret Suite from Brooklyn.

BTW, thanks for all the info on coffee- I NEED my coffee in the morning so I'm slightly concerned about these coffee pods..... But if there's "real" coffee somewhere on site, I'm going to be much happier! I'm one of those kind of crabby early morning coffee makers....

Checking in Wednesday, 1/30 - Friday 2/1

Wednesday is looking like a great pool day, Thursday looks cold--but I have to work anyway, and I have dinner at Cape May Thursday night!!

Just a random, last minute, get-a-way. I've really had the resort itch lately--and I can't wait to be back at Storm-a-long Bay! This will be our first time on the BC side. We normally stay at YC, and I'm happy to try something new!!!


Your last minute stay sounds so very cool!

I'll add you to the Be Our Guest list, quickly!

Those will be non-park days so we can really enjoy the resort. We planned this as a special surprise for DD13 who has some health issues. The past few years have been pretty challenging for her. Staying at BC/YC has been her dream for years, and she's going to be thrilled to finally be able to enjoy Stormalong Bay!

I think we would've preferred Beach Club, but I wanted to be sure we'd get a balcony. We booked garden view. I wasn't planning on asking for anything in particular, as I imagine any garden view will be nice, but I think I'll just ask not to be on the ground floor. I prefer a balcony over a patio. DD sometimes uses a wheelchair, and it seems for that reason we are always given a ground floor room, but it's not really necessary.

Now what's this about real coffee at YC? I know DH won't want to drink Nescafe, that's not coffee, but on the other hand he doesn't like Starbucks. Can he get good old-fashioned plain coffee?


What a great trip for your family, and your daughter!

I'll add you to the Be Our Guest list



Can't blame you for booking YC for a balcony. May I suggest that you request "Upper Floor, Wedding Gazebo View, Please" People who have stayed at YC seem to enjoy that view.

Good morning all! I have been reading this thread- so excited about our upcoming trip ( 5/9-11 SW and Aquatica, 5/11-14 US. 5/
14-18 WDW). This visit will be myself and 2 sons ( 20 and just turned 18 ) Will be a graduation celebration.Main focus of WDW portion of trip will be WPs and HS. Will SAB appeal to guys this age? I currently have booked BC SV, but thinking of changing to YC GV ( SV not available). would appreciate your advice on which resort would be better for us , BC or YC. Here are our priorities:
Likelihood of having daybed ( neither guy thrilled about sleeping with their mom or brother) or rollaway brought in.
Location- I will be renting a car for the first time, as I've heard that is helpful when doing waterparks, so would be nice to have a room that isn't a huge hike to the parking lot. Also, their fav park is HS.
Quiet- don't mind some hustle and bustle.It seems like so many people stay at BC, won't it be more crowded and noisy than YC?
TIA for any and all opinions!

We ate at Captains Grille several times for breakfast for our Nov trip- we have done the buffet and off the menu. Let me say that we LOVE breakfast here.
We ate dinner here once, I had the New York Strip Steak, I found that the steak and mashed potatoes were VERY saltly (I couldn't eat the potatoes). Next time I will ask for NO salt.

The YC is more convenient for HS than BC is because it is a closer walk to the park, and it is a closer walk to the boat dock. I can't remember our son spending a lot of time in SAB when he was that age. But that doesn't mean your sons won't. I agree with you about wanting a day bed for your room. I would, too.

Your trip sounds fantastic!!!

As far as I know, your chances at a daybed are the same at both resorts, but I really don't know for sure. If you request one, but a room is not available, you should be able to get a rollaway cot, which I understand is pretty comfortable.

You may want to choose YC for the full balcony. At BC only about 50% of the rooms have full balconies.

My sons are younger, so I don't know yet what the appeal of Stormalong Bay will be to an 18 or 20 year old- may depend on the young adults and what they like. The slide is fun and the lazy river is nice, but certainly neither compares to what you will experience at the water parks you are visiting.

If they are the type that like to play volleyball they may enjoy getting involved with that.

Have you been to US/IoA before? My family visited "The Parks Which Shall Not Be Named" in 2011.

I think they may enjoy SAB, especially since there should be plenty of others that age celebrating graduations also! It's nice to just sit out in the sun (or in their case maybe nap) during the mid day.

YC is closer to HS boat dock.

We have stayed at both and love both .... BC does tend to have more hustle and bustle, which I like, but wouldn't hesitate to stay YC again!

enjoy your planning.

Thank you- I am definitely
enjoying the planning- to me that prolongs the fun of the trip!
I am leaning on switching to YC GV. Does anyone know about the likelihood of getting a room with daybed if I switch? Also, looking at a map and what I think is the parking lot, it looks like most YC rooms would be closer to parking than BC. Anyone know if this is correct?

Sorry - just saw your post - thanks for the info! Good to know you can request a rollaway - when I earlier checked on BWI, CM told me they weren't available there?!
We went to US one day in Dec. 2010. It was crazy crowded, but we all loved it and are looking forward to going back at what should be a far less crowded time. Are staying at HRH for that portion of trip- which I'm hoping will be right up,their alley!

Also both boys are competitive swimmers- sometimes the last thing they want to do on vacation is swim, but thinking SAB seems more like a WP so they may actually want to go to that pool, a somewhat regular pool they probably wouldn't bother with
