So that seems to agree with the info you got from brunette earlier.
Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He will DEFINITELY be able to ride it by June then!

And thanks for starting a new thread (and with pics in the beginning too!!!)

Yay, HockeyMom!!!!

I rode the big slide last week and it was very fun. I was impressed, for a resort slide I was surprised it would be so much fun with all the twists and turns.

I saw the kidde slide, it's at the base of the big slide by the beach, it overlooks Crescent Lake and the Boardwalk. If I had young children, I wouldn't mind sitting there chilling out watching them (and the activity going on around me, on the lake, etc).

We were at YC CL from 7/20 to 7/29 - it was fabulous! We stayed at the BC CL in July 2009. We really enjoyed both although I certainly enjoyed the larger CL lounge at the YC this year - we apparently missed the remodeled BC CL lounge last year. I understand that both lounges are comparable in size. They certainly have the same offerings.

My family seemed to prefer the YC to BC - if only because the bus stops at YC first!!

I thought the outside to the Yacht Club was much prettier than the Beach Club. I also liked the close proximity of the Yacht Club to the Friendships Boats that took us to Hollywood Studios, Epcot, and the Boardwalk. Factor in a guarantee of a full balcony at the Yacht Club and we are going to try it out in June 2011. I love the whole Yacht Club/Beach Club feel and vibe. Everyone seemed happy!! I also want to stay at the Yacht Club because it's closer to the sandy beach pool area! This was our favorite spot!!

Here are some of the photos I am looking for to put on the FAQ front-page:

Beach Club- New Lobby
Yacht Club- Exterior (especially a view from the Boardwalk vantage point, with lighthouse in photo)- I know, picky picky.
Yacht Club- Lobby
SAB-Whirl Pool, Hot Tubs
Kiddie Slide (maybe HockeyMom) and Playground
Campfire (I have one taken during the day, looking for one with FIRE)
Movies on the Beach
Arcade
Health Club

Quiet Pool(s)

Beach Club Villas- exterior

Also, someone in the old thread posted a picture of their foot in the sinking sands. I will try to find this post and ask if I can use this.

At some point I will get room photos up, but this is not one of my priorities.

PM me if you have any of these photos to put into the FAQ section. I can credit you by screen name, real name or not at all.

Oh, and can someone click on a few of the small photos to see what happens and post back. I am hoping that the pictures get larger so you can see them better, but I didn't want to take up the extra space with all large photos.

Thanks!

For those with questions about SAB, I found this great video on Youtube where they actually took their waterproof video camera through SAB and down the slide. Pretty cool.

Yes, I just called yesterday to see if they had YC CL, no such luck. Oh well, I am just going to enjoy all the posts about CL and plan to book it for my next trip.

Great thread - thanks Dee!
We did have free marshmallows at the campfire while we were there. They handed out a small ziploc with about 4 or 5 in it and they had sticks to use as well.

I might have a picture of the kiddie slide from the pirate ship. I'll look. I'm still uploading pictures from our trip. I just loved hanging out there a couple evenings! I'm not sure I had a camera with me though.

We watched as they were moving and rearranging furniture in the lobby while we were there. I'd be excited to see the finished product. I think I have pictures of some chairs and the big floral arrangement. They might be the old stuff though.

Dee, I also clicked on the photos and they enlarged beautifully (But I cannot get the link on the 1st few posts about the CL lounge offerings to work)

Thanks to the PP who posted the You Tube link!!! I am going to show it to DS later. He has been so jazzed by all the info so far that he asked if we could switch from BWI to BC this November just so he can get on that slide!

beds

Are the mattress new at YC? Are they comfortable? We stayed at AKL and beds was horrible but we stayed at GF and beds were comfortable (for anyone that stayed at YC and GF please share experience with beds).

Are the bedsheet good, AKL bedsheets was rough.
Thank you...my husband is asking me to switch to Swan b/c of his horrible experience with the beds at AKL

Thanks for the heads up on the broken link to the CL pictures. I think I fixed it, so again, if someone could check it out and let me know if either it does or doesn't work, I would appreciate it. My pictures are about mid-way down the page (page 187) of the Concierge Info thread.
