Sooo... Please add us to the BOG list! YC CL 7/13-7/18... We will be at polyCL 7/18-23...

Hoping to see you again teena! Is there a July meet this year?
back!!!

I'll add you to the Be Our Guest list, a couple of slots below me!!!



So, a meet...

Unfortunately, Robyn and I are just missing each other on this trip

Robyn is there from June 29-July 15. I check in on July 16-July 20. Teena will be away in California from July 7-13, I believe. I don't think she will be working during your dates at the Yacht Club

What time do you leave on Thurs? If you want to exchange contact info, PM me or send me an email at beachclubdee@yahoo.com

I think I have caught up, but this morning when I was updating the Be Our Guest list, I lost my update so I would appreciate if everyone would take a moment to peek at the list to make sure I have your info listed correctly.

Please let me know if any adjustments are necessary.

Thanks!

Dee

There are some wonderful HD walk through videos on YouTube that were posted last month. I thought I'd share them. They got me all excited for my trip:

Beach Club:

Yacht Club:

Enjoy!

Headed back to BC for our annual vacation -- June 7 to 14th! Can't wait!

Can anyone tell me: I have pre-purchased Photopass+, and the Marketplace at BC is listed as one of the locations where I can turn in my voucher for my Photopass+ card -- do I just go to the check-out counter to do this?

Thanks!

Yes, but I believe that the hours are limited for the Photopass+ card at the Marketplace. I would check with them before you go.

You are correct! Someone asked this earlier in the thread, I think the beginning of April, and this was the answer:

Does anyone have a pic of what the cot look like I looked through pics and I only saw the daybed. Also does anyone know how many standard rooms at YC have a daybed?

The van is going to be so packed already I'm not sure how I could take them with us now.

Definitely going to need to figure it out soon though.
You can price it out on the FedEx and UPS websites also.

FedEx and UPS deliver to the Yacht/Beach Club Convention Center. The convention center's office is run by an outside vendor. You have to pay them for handling when you receive a package there. The fee is based on the weight of your package. In March 2012 it was:
Up to 5 pounds: $3
5-20 pounds: $5
above 20 pounds: $10

When you're thinking about cost, it sounds like you have to factor in the cost of shipping your package back home after your trip, because I doubt you plan to leave those plush characters behind when you go home. I know people have had the hotel help them ship packages home.

Here's a money-saving idea - do you have a friend or family member with a key to your house? Keep the toys hidden until you leave. Have someone go into your house while you're gone, and set up the huge plush characters on your kids' beds, or maybe sitting on the couch holding the remote. Nobody is happy about having to go home after a Disney trip. You would be doing an In Room Celebration to make everybody feel better about going home, instead of an In Room Celebration to make everybody happy about being at Disney World.

Okay, I said it was an idea... I didn't say it was necessarily a good idea...

There is a section about daybeds in the FAQ section (Post 13, I think). I have a picture of the cot there. I don't know if I have one of the cot folded up, I'll have to check my archives! Reports from Feckless, and others, are that the cots are pretty comfortable.

No idea how many or what percentage of standard rooms at YC have daybeds.



Here is a picture of the rollaway cot- These are provided upon request, free of charge, based on availability. Thanks for the photo, Feckless!
