Live from the YC!!!

We landed at 11:30 at was at the resort at 12:30ish. Check in was great! CM Cindy took care of us and I could not say enough great things about her. My sister and I booked SV and one room was ready so we headed towards the elevators. We are on the 4th floor have have a huge patio/ balcony over the lobby entrance . Four rooms share this outdoor space and it is huge. My room was ready a short time later. We have connecting rooms with 2Q and daybeds. new fridges in both rooms.

We have our magic bands and have used them for purchases and room charges. Tomorrow we hit the parks so we will see how that goes.

I have a friend who stayed in one of those rooms and it is indeed "shared" by all. Worse than a patio IMHO. You can see right in the rooms of those who are also sharing.

Not sure when it will be fixed. I hope that when it is resolved I will still be able to get the same fastpass+ times as my other party members are currently booking.

Hopefully the kinks will be worked out when your trip begins
Thanks, Shari! I hope so too!

That's the shared balcony? Wow! It's huge!
My first thoughts were these.
1. I wouldn't really want to "share". Selfish, I know...
2. Those are awesome balconies, if not for the sharing. Surely there's money to be made by turning those rooms into "suites with oversized balcony". What's the point in having separate rooms share? It's fine for relatives/friends, but for strangers?

I'd also love to hear what other tips you might have for us while we are staying at the Beach Club. Any info would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks for your time!

I'll be off all day to our annual family reunion at the Grand Commons in Newcastle NH. Should be a beautiful day to be seaside. My dad's side of the family is a very fun, close group.

Check-in with everyone later tonight or tomorrow.

The Club Info post shows that the YC CL opens at 7:00 a.m. We tend to be up and out earlier than that. Is there any food (for example, bagels and cream cheese, OJ, etc.) out earlier than that?

Thanks!

When is your trip?

As others have stated, the lounge itself is always open, except when they are doing the prep work for the next food service offering.

I spent many wee morning hours stopping at the lounge before a quiet resort stroll with my camera- unfortunately, I didn't notice what beverages were out either in the dispensers or cooler. I only have eyes for coffee!

There were some of the light afternoon snacks in cannisters- the tropical trail mix is quite good for an early morning energy boost. Can't remember if the Swedish fish or pretzels were out.

A little off-topic rant- 2 years ago we stayed club level at the Hard Rock in Universal. Lounge started serving food at 7 am, the same time the Wizarding World opened to resort guests. We didn't realize that until AFTER we had booked.

You also received good information about the daybeds. My understanding is that families of 5 (with all members over age 3) have priority for a room with a daybed. Say a family of 4 has requested a daybed, and you haven't. You should still get that room first.

However, if there are no rooms with a daybed available when you check in, a rollaway cot will be provided. There is no charge to you. Even a smaller family can request a rollaway during their stay without charge. Sometimes housekeeping gives incorrect info about this.

Ds13 is now mad at me for switching. I just can't win. So I guess I need to be removed from bog list. :-(. It's been nice planning with all of you and hearing all of your reports.
Thanks for letting us know. Have a fantastic trip!

I'll add you as a late-breaking addition to the Be Our Guest list in Post 15.



I don't think the RFID mugs will be available during your stay.

As far as tips, if you have time read through Pages 1 and 2 of this thread. In my opinion, one of the more helpful hints is the "Super Secret Entrance/Exit EPCOT entrance to the BC" This is described in a couple of places including the FAQ- Post 13.

We've gone to the lounge in the wee hours to spread out, or read a book without bothering travel mates. And the previous coffee/espresso Nescafe machine was always on -- not sure with switch to Joffrey's if that will change. I hope they have a similar one. Unlimited espresso at 2am can be awesome.

Yes, the doors are open. I was there a couple of mornings around 4:30 or 5.
