Any umbrellas or shady places around Stormalong Bay where my husband can sit? Unlike his wife and daughter, he's not a fan of sunshine or pools. I just hate to think of him sitting in our room while we're having fun. He'll be fine in the shade with a book and a cold drink.

There is a lot of shade at SAB. If you look at the second post on the first page of this thread,
http://disboards.com/showpost.php?p=...13&postcount=2
you can see an aerial view as well as other pictures of the pool area. The shady areas get filled up fast, though.

My husband is just like yours. He was quite happy to find a comfy, shady place at Storm Along Bay and read his book while he enjoyed a beer. There are definitely a couple of places like that at the pool. I never thought I'd see the day when my Husband said he enjoyed hanging at the pool! Later on in our trip he even ventured into the hot tub after a night in the parks.

Yep. Storm Along Bay is "Non pool loving husband friendly".

Click on the icon with a " and a + sign. Then click on the regular quote icon on the last one you want to quote. So, if you want to quote two postings, click the "+ icon on the first one and the regular quote icon on the the second one.

Hope that helps......

I have not been on this thread for long either and have also learned so much. I have never been to the BC but feel like I have after reading this thread (I just wish I really have eaten one of these shrimp and lbster rolls). Thank you to everyone for being so helpful and friendly!

We booked ten nights but may try to change a few to the new villas at the GF if they are open by then.

Happy birthday to your father.
home!

I'll add you to the list.



I haven't been paying attention to the GF stuff. Are they estimating a completion date?

Had a great lunch with my dad, thanks!

Quick question. What's all this about lobster rolls? Is this part of the food and wine fest or flower thingy? Or is this a new item somewhere at the beach club? My husband will cry tears of joy if he can have a lobster roll by the pool. My only fear is that we'll never get him to the parks.


I'll add you to the Be Our Guest list.




If you haven't had a chance to check out the Deluxe Room thread by BeachClubDee, you may want to look that over. Gives some info and descriptions of the 6 Deluxe rooms at BC, along with pictures, if available. There is a link in the Club Level post on Page 1 of this thread.

Captain's Grille (Table Service) has had a delicious lobster roll at lunch for quite some time, but Hurricane Hanna's (Counter Service near SAB), which just reopened, has a shrimp and lobster roll on the new menu.

Waiting for info and pictures!!! Not sure if you can get just lobster or not. Hopefully our spies will be reporting back shortly with info.

Oreo Bon-Bons used to be the signature dessert at Cape May Clambake. Anyone know if they still have them?

I know they are for sale, in six packs, at the Marketplace and I believe someone took a picture for me, but I can't seem to find it!

Also, I believe they make an appearance in the club level lounges, not sure how often.

I'll let you in on my secret spot, but don't tell anyone...

There is a raised gazebo-thingy near Hurricane Hanna's, with loungers and tables and chairs. Awesome out-of-the-way shady spot near the pool. I'll come back and post a picture in a minute or two.

Thanks for helping out with the multiquoting.

FYI- in the Other Useful Info section of page 1, I have instructions on how to multipost, post pictures and hyperlink web addresses.

I haven't posted in some time, but I've been lurking, dreaming of our next trip. Which thanks to Superstorm Sandy will now be in May 2014. However, I just wanted to add my two cents and give Dee a big THANK YOU for the wonderful job she does keeping this thread going. We stayed BCV last May and because of you (and everyone else who answered my many, many questions), we had an awesome time!!!!!

Last May I did drink a "few" Sunkin Treasures and it's still on the menu on disneyparks.com

Now back to my lurking ......

I have another assignment for those that are at/going soon to the BC/BCV/YC.

This is important research!

If some one would go to Hurricane Hannah's and ask about (or better yet ORDER ) a SUNKIN TREASURE!!

This is a signature drink that used to be at HH's but then they stopped making it....... but then they would make it upon request. I'm wondering if they can still make it or if they no longer have the ingredients on hand to whip up this concoction.

These are the things that keep Ninja Mom up at night!

Any takers? ( and ALM, no hurry if you already were there, some one else will make another trip. ENJOY your vacation!! )

~NM
NM, I hate to think of you missing out on your beauty rest, so if you can wait a month, I'm your girl. Nobody needs to ask me twice to test out an adult beverage while lounging by the pool (more like chasing my 2 year-old around the pool while I watch others lounge, but a girl can dream, right?).

Ahhh, it is so nice to see my name on the BOG list and know that it is only a month away!!!

Teena, will you be working the weekend of 3/2 or 3/9?
