Robyn,
I called Perriwigs and they start at $50 for a wash and blow dry (depending on the length of your hair)! Hope that helps!
I am going to try and get a service menu....

SmileRock,

OMG! Your BC album is fantastic! I am soooo super excited to be staying at the Beach Club for the first time this August. The resort is just beautiful and you did such a wonderful job of capturing the charm. Thank you!!!

Scanne and Kelleigh1,

You are most welcome.

The great thing about staying at the Epcot resort area, is...

When you are back at the Beach Club from an evening at the park...

What are you going to do next? Well of course, take a stroll around Crescent lake and enjoy the incredible beauty!

Unhappy How much for tube rental lazy river Stormalong Bay?

Am I correct, something like $3 per day for tube rental?

Call me frugal, but at the BC/YC prices, that is absurd to charge guests who pay some hefty nightly resort prices to charge additional for lazy river tube rental! At those prices that should be gratis for guests of BC/YC!!!

Does someone know the exact price either per day or per hour?

I've read people bring their own..The only problem with that is blowing them up..They take so much air! I've been at resorts where they have a blow up mechanism provided...Guess thats asking for too much from Disney!

Please anyone a clarification on price for lazy river tube rental at Stormalong Bay???

I agree that having to rent stinks. They probably do that to minimize the crowding in the river and pool. If they were free, everyone would have a float and that would be crowded!

Last year it was $3 for an hour and $9 for the day. But when we swam (last August in the PM), we never rented. Seemed that there was always empty floats going around, so we just grabbed them. Nobody cared.

Also, if you bring your own floats for the kids, make sure they are clear. I've read that they need to be clear this year. Not sure if that is true or not. Best to call your friendly BC CM!

Have a GREAT trip!

In May, we paid $3 an hour for a double tube. I found it hard for my DD to use with me so we went to Walmart and bought a single for $1! We didnt have any problems blowing it up and it was blue. Now that I look back on it she did not use it in the lazy river part so maybe in there it has to be clear??? Better to be safe and buy a clear one though!

Clear tubes for pool....

Anyone know of a chain or online who sells clear tubes. I checked Target to no avail. I would like to pre-purchase one for Stormalong Bay. Thanks!

I'm so glad some-one else feels this way! I was so taken back when we were told it was $3 and hour our $10 for the day! Like are you crazy! We just paid over $500 for a room for the night and we have to pay for a tube?!! I was so pissed off! I can see limiting them to so many tubes at a time but to charge. I thought it was really tacky. I waited so many years to go to the YC and the lazy river and didn't because of this. I mean even the water parks don't charge and they are cheaper than $500 a day!!
So in answer to your quesion $3 and hour $10 a day. I did see people with noodles floating around and didn't hear or see anything about the tubes having to be clear.

You rock!!! And I see you're going again soon, so I guess that means more pics. (Btw, just noticed you're from Boston. Hi neighbor!)


With regards to Stormalong Bay, do you need to use a tube for the lazy river? My husband figures I'm going to spend a lot of time there, but at $10 per day, I'm not sure I want to do that. (Hmm, maybe I should make friends with another guest and we can share the price of the tube.)

You don't need a tube to do the lazy river, but it is deep... 8' I believe. The current is fairly strong. I've done it without a tube, but then the 'lazy' river turns into the 'workout' river if you know what I mean. I think this year I might just buy a cheap $ tube and bring it with us.

PS: I don't know about you, but I'm gettin' tired of all these boat duck parades we seem to be having the past few years. NOT!

Lagoon entertainment

At the monorail hotels and FW you get the Electric Light Parade in the lake in the evenings (which is a traditional must see for us). Other than sitting by the dock of the bay watching the tide roll away is there much else that goes on "ON" the lake by the YC/BC/BW at night?

Well, besides the whole BW entertainment of strolling magicians, clowns,games, music, you can watch Illuminations from the bridge and sometimes catch parts of Fantasmic. Does that help
