I think it is in the closet about shoulder level, maybe.

BC here and had to call the concierge with the exact same question! In ours it is inside the closet, on the right, at the same level that the hangers are. In ours, the hangers were blocking it so we could not find it. It is completely flush with the wall. It has an old school key, which I think is insane. I have not seen that in years. Usually you can program your own code.

In our room when facing the closet, the room door is to the right. If yours is to the left, the safe may be on the opposite side.

Yes, lights, motors, action. I thought there may be a reserved section possibly but it is only a separate line that just merges under the stadium and then you just fend for yourself for general seating. Enjoyed the show but don't use a fastpass + for it.

The safe is in the closet on one of the side walls inside.

I have never heard of a pumpkin carving contest at the resort in October. That would be cool- I am always impressed with the creativity I see when people carve pumpkins.

Great question about the doors. I definitely had a door on our last trip and I could have sworn that the other two trips were sliding doors, so as another poster indicated, I think they have both. Can't believe that I don't remember definitively, will have to check my pictures!


BTW- I see in your signature you will be doing Hard Rock/cruise/BC. In July, my family did a Hard Rock/Beach Club split. I have a trip report in progress- I have a detailed Hard Rock update and I have just started on the studios theme park.

I am actually going to jump ahead and start the Beach Club/Disney part of the trip in the next day or two- I'll give everyone the bat signal when I have those updates posted.

Can anyone tell me what time they do the movie on the beach at BC? Thanks!!
The time for the movie can change every month. I usually receive the Activities schedule on the first or second day of the month, so check here on Sept 1 or 2.

Movie was at 8:30 pm in Sept 2012.

I have you added to the Be Our Guest list for Sept. Is your checkin date Sept 15?

The prices listed before are correct. A chip is on the bottom on the mugs. If you purchase a one day mug at 9 PM Sunday night, it stops working in three hours. Midnight is the cut off time ... doesn't matter when you purchase them.

The "length of stay" mugs are really 14 day mugs. Let's say you check in today at the BC and purchase the length of stay mug. It's good at any Disney resort (and now they are saying only resorts, not water parks) for 14 days. So you can do split stays, you can go on a 3 day cruise and come back and for 14 days, your mug works. If your reservation is for 17 days, you bring the mug back to merchandise on the 14th day and they will reprogram it for the next 3 days. They can "read" the chip that is on the mugs so they can tell the day you purchased it, etc. As far as loosing one, you MUST show your receipt.

You cannot microwave these mugs. It fries the chip. If you bring it back to merchandise with a fried chip, then you are out of luck, receipt or not.

There is also a regular old cardboard cup that can be purchased for a few dollars. It is good for 2 hours and/or 4 refills. It also has a chip on it.

The dispensers only dispense 12 ounces at a time and once you use your mug for a fill-up, you cannot get another fill-up for 2-1/2 minutes.

Thank you so much for this info Teena!!!

I am updating the first post/first page of this thread daily with Rapid Refill Mug news as we receive it.


My questions/requests for info:

I am guessing that the stations are set up at both The Marketplace and Hurricane Hanna's. Can anyone confirm?

Does anyone know if you will still be able to use the Ale & Compass for refills in the morning? That's not self-serve, is it?

Could someone who is there now please take a picture of the mug display and refill machines at both/all locations. No need to post until you return from your trip, I know it can be difficult to post pictures while away.

Would also appreciate confirmation of the beverages available: soda, lemonade, PowerAde?, Ice Tea flavors, hot tea, coffee. Are there any juices included?

Many thanks!

Yes you can add me to the list.

Oh it would be nice if they did. It was pretty cool seeing it at AoA. The pumpkins were set up in Landscape of Flavors & the guests were suppose to vote for their favorite. The winner was announced that weekend.

My heart goes out to you. Our cat Grace had a situation last week that I thought was going to out her in medical danger, and for a day or so, I started thinking about life without her (she's only 7), And the thought was unbearable. I will be thinking of you and your family during this difficult time, I'm sure Bubba knew how much he was loved, and I am so glad he was at least able to leave this world peacefully in his sleep.

Hello!

I haven't posted in ages but I have been lurking and catching up....I just wanted to share my excitement that I will be "unexpectedly" staying at the Beach Club on Friday night!! Here's the story:

We had originally booked a trip for this week on a bounce back from last summer's stay. Unfortunately, my son couldn't get the time off from work and my husband, who is self employed, wasn't sure about the dates as well. I was crushed, as planning and anticipating my WDW trips is a part of my life! My daughter, who is 20, wanted to do something "tropical", so, instead of going to Disney without them, we cancelled our trip and booked a cruise for just she and I which leaves Sunday from Miami. WELL...my brother, his wife and my nieces, ages 10 and 13, will be at the Beach Club this week before heading out on their Disney Cruise on Saturday. He suggested we fly into Orlando instead of Miami a couple of days early and surprise the girls...I thought about this a total of one second, hung up and booked the Beach Club! I was able to get a garden view room, which is all they had left, and they even gave me the discounted rate I booked my original reservation with - bonus!

I cannot tell you how excited I am. I LOVE LOVE the Beach Club. It is my "happy place", and even though we are only there for Friday night (we are driving to Miami Saturday afternoon, staying in South Beach, leaving for cruise Sunday) I will be in heaven. I am bummed out I don't get to stay club level - we have stayed there the past three trips - as I just love the CM's who work there, but it is sold out (at least for the discounted rate). We should arrive in Orlando Friday about 10:00, hoping to get the car and be at check-in by 11-11:30 latest. We can dump our bags, and head to the MK to surprise the girls at the castle - my brother has some big plan in place!

Anyway, just wanted to share in my excitement with people who "get it"!!
