To get their name, and strollers out there in the World, they are offering free stroller rentals for the cost of the daily insurance, so just $5/day plus tax, for a limited time. It is an awesome deal if you need a double stroller.

WOW! That is an awesome deal. I will definitely look into that. Thank you for the information.

Yes, we have no cabanas.


Sorry, had to do it.

Unfortunately, I have never heard of any cabana rentals at Stormalong Bay or any of the other pools at Yacht & Beach.

On a more helpful note- who knows which resorts DO have cabana rentals? The only one I know of is Poly. Do any of the EPCOT resorts offer them? Boardwalk? Swan? Dolphin?

Sad. As far as I know the Poly, Contemporary and Grand Floridian all have cabanas. I wish the EPCOT resorts did. Thanks for answering my question though!

This will be our first stay at the YC and we're really looking forward to it. I like the fact that we'll be close to Epcot and HS and we can't wait to check out SAB.
Sounds wonderful! I'm afraid I won't want to leave WL...left the parking pass on the windshield for a week after getting home. That being said, SAB looks awesome and walking to EP even better.

Have fun!

Good luck!

Amanda,

Thanks for quick reply! I really appreciate it! What are benefits of small point contracts? It seems like if you go yearly you want more points. I will start lurking more on the DVC board! You're so helpful!

thanks again,
Angeejoe

I am so excited, just booked my airfare this morning, I'd never booked a trip so early I couldn't book the air. SW finally released air for late August this morning and I got the perfect direct flights I wanted and my SW RR points covered them making this trip much more affordable than the last two, free air!!!
Oh thanks for the info-I just booked fro the end of Aug too and got great prices for labor day weekend.I had enough points to cover all 4 of us We cancelled last years trip because we sold our house in like an hour and wound up moving instead of going away!So hopefully we will be going to Beach club for the first time from 8/21-8/31.As long as the house renovation gets finished soon and it stops going over budget so much!

Thanks 333disneymom! I wondered myself if people bought into a home base, but didn't use it as much. You're answer was very helpful! I think I'm going to start lurking on DVC forum!

thanks,

Natebenma,

Thanks for the welcome! we have no date yet for next trip. We were hoping to plan some thing for sept for a big fam trip, but DSIL just announced she's pregnant & due in Oct which puts a wrench in our plans ! I'm happy for new baby of course, but really missing BC/YC! Last 2 years we went in feb/ march, so I feel like we should be getting ready to leave !

Full balcony at BC

Nervous about balcony request - I put in for a patio/full balcony so first or second floor at BC. But it looks like about a 50/50 chance since the upper floors have the standing balconies (and why would they even do this in first place). Hoping I can get it - we are going Feb 20-27. Or that they can switch us to YC which has all full balconies if we have to. Anyone experience success/failure at this before?

Thank you! I'm super excited but not in a hurry.

I think I paid $18 and they were saying DVC members pay $15.
I also heard, and could be rumor, that they were starting fast pass plus in march for mk and over the summer for epcot.
Hope you have a great trip!
Yay for member discounts. Another reason to buy...

For us the benefit is purely financial. I want to be able to pay cash for a contract and that will only be possible with a smaller contract. I want to buy in sooner rather than later but won't finance DVC.
For others the benefit of a small contract is that it's easier to sell if you decide that DVC isn't for you.

You have the best chance of full balcony if that is your only request! Good luck to you.

Just reposting to see if anyone had insight into my curious question? Lol in the SV rooms for 5+ a person is still in a daybed, so when I see reports of having a daybed in GV or LV rooms I don't understand why that isn't the option for families of 5. Is it because they are smaller than daybeds in designated 5+ rooms? Or are they just picky? Any ideas or know-how on this?
