I finally took some time and read the BE Our Guest List....geez, August seems to be VERY popular. I am a little worried that is is going to be jam packed when we arrive.
We've only stayed at a value in late Aug before, so will BC be just as crowded as a value would be? Just curious.

Got home this afternoon from our trip!

We ended up staying at three different resorts, ending up at Beach Club. It was as amazing as I remember.
We drove straight through from Virginia so I made a reservation from the road for the a Little Mermaid room but was pixie dusted into a Cars suite. Then we stayed at Port Orleans Riverside for 4 nights then on to Beach Club for 5 nights.
Three sets of KTTWs!

I loved our location room 3610 close to the lobby, which was my only request. I loved the Juliet balcony, didn't miss a larger one at all. The weather was great only one really rainy night at POR. I wouldn't hesitate to book another June trip.
Thanks for all of the wonderful information on this thread. I used the secret door all the time!

Teena- I am so glad to hear that Bob is okay. It is so hard to be the loved one who isn't the patient. It was really nice talking with you. You really do make the Beach Club a special place.

Here's our agenda on July 16.

Checking into BC around 11-ish.

Heading over to MK. Lunch at CHH.

Monorail over to EP in late afternoon (4-ish)

Back to BC or directly to dinner at La Hacienda at 6:30.

Let me know if any of those times/places work.

Hmmmm... We could meet up for a Margarita or Grey Goose Slushie and watch Illuminations together if that is not too late for you.

Hey! I think Hubby and I will be lunching at CHH on July 16th!

We are doing the Keys to the Kingdom tour and, if I remember correctly, the lunch stop is at CHH!

I can see my husband cringing as I stop at every table to ask, "Are you the Beach Club lady?".

Seems like, but yet prices keep going up!

This must be the year for trying a Disney waterpark! There are a few of us on this thread going to one for the first time here soon. I too have no idea what to expect works for our family but hope for the best!
I loved AK at night! PM EMH there was discontinued a couple ? of years ago.

We love the wdw water parks. The theming is just as amazing as at the parks.

Glad he's starting to get up and move around. I hope he's feeling even better tomorrow!

Oh we loved Artist Point when we stayed at WL in 2010. We are going to try Via Napoli I think, unless I switch to Tutto. Chefs de France. Biergarten which we enjoyed on our honeymoon 15 years ago, but cancelled on the 2 trips with the kids because it just wasn't gonna happen. Rose and Crown is booked, we always eat there. Want to try Big River Grille and probably end up at ESPN at some point too. Scored a BOG ADR as well.

I'm sad I won't get to meet you, you'll be away when we are there.

No, it won't be as crowded even if full, because BC has a lot less rooms then a value. Pop has 2880 rooms, BC has around 560? rooms.

Sounds like you had a great trip! I think we have decided to drive straight through also, and I am looking at booking a Little Mermaid room for that night- my kids (and me) would love to check out AOA! That is wonderful about the pixie dust to a suite!!
