The Yacht Club and Beach Club just had a fire alarm this morning at approximately 6:30 a.m. We all evacuated the buildings through the stairway. Boy, was that scary at first! Come to find out it was a FALSE ALARM!!! Ugh! I would love to know what exactly happened. Teena, would you happen to know.

Thanks!
Brunette

We checked out of the Beach Club on Tuesday and are home now. LOVED LOVED LOVED the Yacht and Beach Club. I could not get my kids out of Stormalong Bay to visit the parks!!! We also stayed Club Level and loved everything about it. The CMs at the Beach Club were wonderful, sweet, and very helpful. We can't wait to go back and will stay here again next June if all goes as planned. Numerous times I overheard people walking around who were visiting the BC or YC with dinner ressie say how they wished they were staying at the YC or BC, too.

There is SO MUCH to do in this area, the resorts are a hidden gem!!

On the marshmallows on the Beach, hopefully somebody there now can confirm, but I heard they were free.
Made the change about the smores.

Question about room categories- on the former page, it listed a club level lagoon room and stated it could fit 4 plus instead of the 5 plus listed for the other categories.

I am going to change this to CL water view. Should the sleeping arrangement be 4+ or 5+?

Thanks!

How was dinner last night?

Joining in on the new thread -- thanks for getting this started!

I'm still checking every day for a Garden View room in January - so far I'm still only seeing water view so the wait continues.

We just returned from BC CL, here are some of the items we were offered:

From 7:00am-10:30am they had bagels, croissants, breads, muffins, fresh fruit - bananas, apples and mixed fruit containing watermelon, honeydew and cantelope. They also had yogurt, hard boiled eggs, juice, chocolate milk, coffee, tea and an assortment of cold cereal and hot oatmeal with various toppings to choose from.

From 11:30am-4:00pm they had 3 kinds of cookies, gummy fish, yogurt covered pretzels, trail mix, and home made chips and dip. In addition, they had had soda, lemonade, Evian and Perrier waters, etc.

From 5:00pm-7:00pm they had various assortment of cheese and crackers, assortment of veggies and dip, pita bread and hummus, olive and mozzarella salad, and two hot appetizers. Some of the appetizers were mini egg rolls, crab ragoon, bacon wrapped scallops, chicken on a stick, duck quesedillas and potstickers. In addition, they had 3 choices of wine and various choices of beer, including Heinken, and soft drinks.

From 8:00pm-10:00pm they had cordials (Grand Marnier, etc), beer, soft drinks, and lots of mini desserts - yummy!

I haven't looked through the photo thread yet, so maybe there is something there.

Thanks!

Oh, yes, of course. I have a zillion pictures of the little slide, but they all have our son in them! If I can't find something by February, I will make it my mission to take photos of the entire little slide area.

Thanks, again, for moving us over here, and for all your work!

I did take pics of this area in July. There were so many questions on the thread before we left on our trip and actually there were people looking for a "little" slide while we were at SAB.

I do need to download to photobucket. Hopefully later today.

Have you tried the Yacht Club Concerige Level? Either or, they are both great. Yacht Club is beautiful. We are thinking of staying there next time.
